Settling in

They drive on the wrong side of the road, turn off their taps - sorry, faucets - the wrong way, and the light switches are upside down...

And spring in this corner of Virginia (Charlottesville) is just gorgeous. I believe the town has been voted the best place to live in US for several years now, and I can see why. It really is lovely. I have been here before, but not quite at this time of the year. The dogwoods and cherry trees and azaleas are in blossom, the trees are all in full leaf (eat your heart out, all you people in more northerly climes), the days are short-sleeved Tshirt warm and the nights nippy. What more could one ask?

I am working on the third book of The Mirage Makers: The Song of the Shiver Barrens.

Hi Z! Nice to hear from you - hug transferred (he has finally stopped running in the opposite direction every time I appear!) Selina says hi. Hope you enjoy The Tainted when you finally get your hands on it.

And the birds, spring migration. How is it in Charlottesville? Central Park, New York is great for warblers.
