Another Nice Review Today…and a Guilty Confession ;)

This time at Sefina Hawke’s Books. So far, everyone seems as fond of Jo as I am.

Have you ever had a character that you identify with so strongly he or she almost feels like family? I know a writer shouldn’t have a favorite child any more than a mother, but Jo has definitely taken over that spot.

She not only has one doll adapted to her image…she has TWO!

Something I kind of hate to admit…because it sounds a bit silly…but she isn’t even the first character I’ve had a doll of!

Stefan from The Luckless Prince (who used to be my favorite character evah) was the first to have a figure. I adapted one of the original Ted action figures for that one.

Ted Doll

With very little adaptation, actually, he was repainted and looked awesome. (To me, at least.) Keanu at this age was my inspiration for the character. Unfortunately, I don’t know where he is right now, so I can’t share…

I also have two versions of my Flannery from the book that never seems to be finished.

(This one is handmade, and looking a little worse for wear after twenty + years…)

I even commissioned a doll of my Daisy Brambleburr hobbit character from the lovely and talented Melanie Fletcher. She also makes beautiful jewelry

So, like I say, Jo isn’t the first character I’ve created a visual representation of…but she is the first one to have friends…
