Happy 2018 to all you lovely people. I hope it’s shaping up to be a great year for you. After a short but wonderful hiatus to celebrate the silly season with family up in North Queensland, I am finally back at my desk and ready to start working on this year’s goals. First cab off the rank is the new ‘Character Design Weekly Challenge’ on Facebook. My first post for 2018 and week 1 for the Challenge prompt ‘pet’ is Snowy, the pet jumping spider of my favourite little mouse character, Billy Brambleberry…
Extract from my book in progress, ‘A Very Brambleberry Christmas’:
Snowy was Billy’s right from the start. Billy found the small and frightened baby jumping spider on his way home from school, cowering in a ditch near Possum Creek School. When Billy scooped the shivering, white spider into his arms they became instant friends and they’ve been inseparable ever since.
