Dean is an Irish student, artist and writer, who not only beta-read Changelings, but offered some editing tips on the line of Irish dialogue (Google Translator, it turns out, isn’t a fabulous idea!). I gave Dean the early draft with some trepidation – after all, it’s been a few years since I lived in Ireland, and given that self-doubt is a second skin I wear, I wasn’t sure it would measure up. Imagine my relief when Dean gave that early version a thumbs-up! Dean and I have traded guests posts over the two years I’ve known him – we were first introduced through The Community Storyboard, first through his art, and then through his writing. I’ve enjoyed reading and watching him hone and expand his talents in both areas! Not only has he published a short story, Quentin Hide and the Evil Lord Twigton (buy it!), he also runs an online store selling his artwork!
Dean is one of those bloggers who really gives us a picture into this life – many things on Dean’s Doodlez are drawings and his projects-in-progress, but over at Wee Bit Wordy, he opens up and allows us into his world, either through his goal posts for Building Rome or just general musings. It’s always a pleasure to see and read what’s happening with Dean’s life, and I am so pleased that he’s showcased Changelings on both his sites! Thank you so much, Dean!
