Tristan da Cunha Island
Okay, get busy! That's my admonition to myself. The Girl Who Dreamed of Ships is on its way into the world. The next project is a book I started many years ago--and stuffed it into the file cabinet when my life suddenly got more exciting. It's about a boy and an island and an extinct volcano that woke up and all that happened after that.
Some of the story is historical fact--like the island of Tristan da Cunha and it awakening. That the entire population of the island, just under 300, was evacuated. From there on a twelve year old boy named Thomas appears on the scene and makes his way for almost three years alone--except for Binka and Shag, of course. How can a boy manage without his dog and his donkey, after all. The book is more than half written. I'm hoping to finish before the end of July.
