Whether they be friends, lovers, siblings, or intergenerational. In that sense, Holmes and Watson are my favorite fictional couple. They know everything there is to know about each other, and it's okay. They don't always agree, and sometimes they're estranged, but their true affection overcomes disagreements. They each want the other to be the best he can be. They are present in each other's lives.(less)

Whitby: The East Cliff Headland

View of Whitby from West Door of Abbey



Writing is an exercise in imagination. And one of my favorite places to let my creativity run wild is Whitby, on the east coast of Yorkshire at the mouth of the River Esk.





This is a photo from the west entrance to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, a Benedictine monastery from the 12th century. With one important exception, the view encompasses layers of history.
