A-Z Challenge I is for Illustrations and Inspiration

You know? Some people have more talent in their little finger than I do in my whole body.

Author Elin Gregory not only loves writing, she loves drawing too. She beta-read my "Hewhay Hall", so she knows it - and look what she painted for it. If that's not a teaser, then I don't know what is!!!

I adore illustrations and I think my favorite illustrator is Norman Rockwell. One of his paintings (The Freedom of Speech) was featured in my first novel "Perfect Score". Elin says her favorite illustrator is J.C. Leyendecker . She also told me that some writers use sketches as a way of setting their scenes or characters in their minds. So I asked her if she had any illustrations that she's used for her own writing. And look what she sent me!!! (They're all works in progress).
