A new project
With the Missed Connections book wrapped up and off at the printer, I have the beginnings of a new project to share with you.
For now I'm calling it Drawn From My Father's Adventures.
I have always loved my father's stories, the grim ones from boarding school during the war, the exciting ones from being the son of a spy, the exotic and bizarre and beautiful ones from traveling to unpronounceable places long before there were guide books. These stories formed pictures in my head over the years and I have finally convinced him to write them down so I can get them out of my head and onto the page.
I live in Brooklyn, New York and my father lives in rural Australia, so it's a long distance collaboration. I'm awfully excited. Come and have a look.
ps This doesn't mean Missed Connections is over...
