http://shivasarms.blogspot.com/2011/09/flower-child-by-sheila-deeth.html, telling how music helped me craft Flower Child, despite the fact that I never listen to music while writing.
Cheryl's posting a review of Flower Child on her Scattered Light blog too, http://snellsisters.blogspot.com/2011/10/review-of-sheila-deeths-flower-child.html. I hope you'll take time to visit both places and enjoy the wonderful arts of the Snell sisters.
Cheryl Snell is the author of Shiva's Arms, Rescuing Ranu, and Variations on a Theme with Harmonica, amongst other, all books that I've read, reviewed and enjoyed.
Shiva's Arms: a wonderful cross-cultural window and a thoroughly enjoyable read, with bonus recipes at the end for a taste of India.
Rescuing Ranu: A beautiful blending of culture, symbol and plot, conveying the passion of mathematics just as surely as that of love.
Variations on a Theme with harmonica: short stories with deep lingering tones, a harmonica's birdsong haunting the basement's gloom, and truths that blossom into singular shapes of honesty.
