Story-teller, Cactus and Moscow City Ballet

1   The little story-teller figure is a Pueblo Indian character and is honour of my Dad whose novels are behind the little figure in the photo.

    The little story-teller figure of the Pueblo Indian character reminds me of my little statue of a boy riding on the back of a water buffalo. It keeps me company while I work at my desk.

    so cool to have your dad’s book and an author for a dad–that is where you get your writing ability I will bet

    Love ballet. Would have to go to NYC to see any, but haven’t had an interested friend to go with since the 70s, so unless some company comes to Cornwall in May 2014 I will be out of luck! My “Christmas” cactus are done flowering. Your Dad was quite the prolific author, were they Westerns or history or childrens’ novels? Trying to decide from the spines. Shelagh.

      Hello, sorry to be so long in replying. I’ll watch the Hall for Cornwall publicity and tell you as soon as we know about 2014!
      Most of Dad’s books were for children, historical time travel and humour. The ones by Jane Julian are historical romance for adults. JJ was his pseudonym! I’m very proud to have them on my shelves. 🙂
