In a few weeks I'll be making a short trip down the California coast to San Simeon to celebrate birthdays with some of the ladies in my family. Destination: Hearst Castle. The romance and drama of the castle perched in the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean has always appealed to me. A few years ago, my husband and I visited the famed estate of William Randolph Hearst. Here are some of my favorite moments from that tour (2013). I think it could be fun to set a romantic thriller here. What do you think?
A friend recently sent me a link to a story about a young Brazilian comic book artist, Hugo Canuto, who's turning African gods into superheroes. As someone who's also been inspired by the gods and goddesses of Afro-Caribbean religions in both my writing and my artwork, I was intrigued. It's exciting to see these dynamic gods and their stories make it into modern day culture.

I found this adorable fairy door on a recent walk to Park Street. I love all the detail, down to the hinges and the kitty. Below are a few more doors I spotted on the same walk.
Here are a few of my favorite personal experiences from this year in photos and video. Hope you enjoy.
