  1. Cheryl, your illustrations continue to keep me spellbound. Someday I’ll have time to enjoy every one of your stories. I look forward to it-It’s on my list of things to do ASAP!

    1. Thanks, Elena, that means a lot to me, as I always look forward to seeing your new paintings, you’re very prolific. Glad you’re enjoying these as much as I enjoy your fantastic artwork. Cheryl

    1. Thanks, Richard, glad you’re enjoying reading it. Yes Alex and Katherine kind of broke out of the illustration at this point, I felt a bit intrusive :O Hope your new years break is going well, I’m looking forward to seeing more photos when you return. (fingers crossed)

  2. one day someone will approach you asking for movie rights to your amazing story and your sensitively powerful drawings will be the storyboard…believe me…i am rarely wrong in my intuitions…

  3. Fascinating. Really — the mind quails. I’d love to know how much of this you make up as you go and how much you have planned. I know when I started writing my serial, all I had was the idea — no real characters planned, no arching plot, and now that I’m maybe 25,000 words in, only now do I know where it’s going; where it ends. Do you have an ending in mind, or is this truly open-ended and unplanned?

    1. I think like you a lot of the writing is organic, and I find the characters surprise me sometimes, although there are fixed points which I need to inevitably tie into the plot. It’s kind of like weaving a tapestry, knowing that some things are quite flexible whilst others have to happen. (Although sometimes what I had once thought concrete, can be remoulded, which is one of the best parts of writing in this genre. There is an ending, many different endings, to this story, but nothing truly ends in this world, as there are so many characters, and so many possibilities.
