HERE'S LUCY!

My novel - the one due out next year - features two mysterious brown parcels. It also features a woman who is a taxidermist. I love taxidermy; I especially love modern pieces, the anthropomorphised kind.

I have long been looking for a suitable first piece of taxidermy to start a collection and I found it recently (on the net of course).

Her name is Lucy and she's a mouse. She is standing on a vintage box of tansy which is a herbal medicine that features in the novel I am currently writing. I like that she ties the two books together. So here she is, Miss Lucy Luch, made by Nimble Matters:

Are you going to have her work as your agent?

Pat - if only she doubled as Luck Luck, I'd be away on a hack :)

Cute, thought it was a real one for a minute!

She is real, Rozz. Taxidermied not living.

Aaahhh... eeeeh... (I'm terrified of taxidermy, perhaps that's a fear I should explore...) -- but your novel sounds fascinating, and I'll look forward to reading it!

Tracey - I am sure many people feel as you do. An acquired taste, perhaps? Fingers x'd the novel *won't* terrify you :)
