"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Valentine's Day

I've had these pretty Valentines since my childhood, when a beloved family member sent them to me. I wanted to be that 18th century lady in the red dress, dancing with my beloved in Venice.

I loved the cards so much that I carefully preserved them, and they have moved about the world as I have done.
