|Huntington Railroad Station on Monday|
A time of year to turn inward and let the imagination run wild. Think The Polar Express
and all the cool trains at the Botanical Gardens.
How bright the moon shone last night
and how enchanting the florist on 8th Avenue.
Closer to home we made the first cookies of the season.
Robert added the nose and Elly the two silver ball eyes. Hm.....
This is the magical estate in Essex in England where I grew up in an old gamekeeper's cottage. It is the setting of my story Jane in Winter which you can read free on line here, download from Nook or iTunes, or buy as an actual book from Amazon here. It's aimed at 9-12 year olds but anyone who grew up in the 1950's (or wishes they did) might enjoy it too
I'm giving away one signed copy of the book to the commenter whose name will be chosen at random on Sunday ---- so I can get the book to the winner before Christmas.
ps Sunday afternoon.
Just done the drawing and Mr.Paparazzo from Hungary won the book.
I will send it as soon as I have his address.
