Of Kin and Kinship: The World of the Changelings

Years ago, when I started this blog, I intended it to have two purposes: 1) force me to put myself out there and start talking about what was, at the time, simply referred to as “The Book,” and 2) create a semi-interactive repository for all the minutia of the world of the Changelings. The first […]

Lost in the Museum

Years ago (too many years ago!) I wrote a fun little book as a birthday goody-bag prize. It was spare – good for a half-hour read at most – and meant to encapsulate an adventure at our local museum. I love our museum, and I adore the exhibit within, the Streets of Old Milwaukee – […]

Day 2: Mouldering Detritus

Aunt Margaret collected bits of silver and books, mouldering paper and the detritus of our families’ lives like other people collected coins, or stamps. D: Moulding Detritus? Oh, that’s just a delightful turn of phrase, A. A: Like it? I thought it was lovely, myself. D: You would. A: Whatever – read on, D. Besides […]

The World of the Changelings: The name’s the thing
