Here they are...
These visuals for Abandoned helped me tell the story of Jack and Isabella. I've been an exurban explorer since I was a young 'tween riding bikes in the surrounding countryside of my little hometown with my cousins. Fast forward to meeting my future husband and most of our "dates" involved searching for derelict, abandoned homes. I can't tell you exactly why these places are so compelling for people like me, but I'm glad to know I'm not alone! My husband started a construction company in 1987 and the itch to tell a story combining two of the things he and I love so much got the better of me. I've added a dash of my belief in most everything otherworldly. 👻
When I came across the images of Berkyn Manor several years ago, I couldn't quit thinking about the last man to live in the house. He died there at the age of 96. The history of the house is significant in that it was once the home of John Milton, author of Paradise Lost, and his parents .from 1632 to 1638. Click the link and lose yourself in a host of images so poignant, they may leave you feeling as lost and abandoned as the home and man that inspired this story.
I hope you enjoy!
For those who’ve been following my blog for years, you know I have a thing for anything and everything abandoned, rusty, forlorn, and neglected. Most of the images I’ve shared on my Abandoned Blog have been gleaned from fabulous photographers willing to put their work on the world wide web with Creative Commons licenses so people like me can share them with people like you. I hope you’ll take an hour or so to immerse yourself in my poignant imagery. You can even submit your email address in the right-side column of the blog page to receive a notification of new posts (not the same as the sign up for this newsletter).
Until the next novel release, find me around the web!
