Amazing Animals

A to Z Challenge, The Caretaker of Imagination

For the April A-Z blogging challenge, I’ll be blogging (almost) daily about my latest release, The Caretaker of Imagination.

When my illustrator, Jane Thorne, sat down to do the illustrations in The Caretaker of Imagination, the enchanted forest scene tickled her imagination.

Jane used some of the animals I had described in the forest, but also added some of her own. In the illustrator’s foreword (which is only in the Limited Edition version) she says, “I took some liberties and added in as many exotic non-forest dwelling animals as I could imagine.”

You can see that she’s taken animals from all over the place – from the Australia to Antarctica to the African savannahs. What animal would you add?

    1. Thanks for your comment – I had to look up what a quagga was… think I’m going to have to bring it in somehow or the other.


    1. Yes, I do know 🙂 I really loved your question about the animal characters. It gave me more insight into myself and my writing.


    1. Good idea. On fact, the draft I’m working on now has a bit of island-hopping. I think I will have to do a NZ-themed one. Thanks for the inspiration!
