|Abra writing in the dark and online (McDonalds) from the bike path. From Sept. 2010 online|
I just have to share this from our daughter Abra – her delight at being IN THE LIBRARY as an author. She blogs about writing (and her life in Minnesota) at http://cloudscudding.livejournal.com/. Her online novel, The Circus of Brass and Bone is gathering donations towards my cancer treatments.
Her story, “The Radiator Burped”, is in Northern Lights, an anthology of 20 speculative fiction tales by “20 talented Minnesota science fiction, fantasy and horror authors”. Here’s her post:
Something I wrote is at the library! That’s like the big time, man! A little piece of me will live there, and sometimes it will visit other people, but it’ll always go back. And at night, when everybody leaves and the books speak to each other in papery whispers, a leetle bit of my voice will be in there. This pleases my inner child, the one who spent endless hours practically living in the library, who schemed how she might be able to hide so that she could stay in the library overnight, and who planned to run away to the library (if she ever had to run away).
