I wrote Dear Miklos with nostalgia in my heart. It’s dedicated to Mary Stewart, and more specifically to one of my favorite books, The Moonspinners. I love the way she would go to another country, as a tourist, absorb the environment, and then go home and write an adventure story that was set there. I wanted to go on that adventure too, all these years. So finally I wrote Dear Miklos and journeyed to Greece in my imagination. I set the story in the seventies, because I remember the decade with such fondness. Like the movies of the time, there’s a lot of soft focus!
Also, please check out my self-published novel ~ Sunrise Meets the Star. When I first envisioned this story, it was much more complicated. Epic, my two main characters were to save not one but too fantasy countries. There were hills, and coins and mystique. But when I set off to write the adventure, it became far more cozy. A quest must be embraced, a will’s intricate demands followed, and a peasant, who is an able-bodied and strong young man used to taking care of himself, must be pampered. By the end of the story, he’s no longer alone.
