Rebecca Hammond Yager grew up in the bewitching realm of Vermont. She has a degree in creative writing and a lifetime love of monsters and beasts. When her nose isn't in a book, her head is firmly in the clouds where all dreamy heads ought to be. She now lives in South Carolina with a menagerie of beasts and her handsome, longsuffering husband where she obsessively collects fairytales, devours fantasy and science fiction, and rescues animals. ...more

Dianna Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle. Where I would borrow or steal Howl’s fabulous castle or perhaps beg for Howl and Calcifer to make
me my own. The only thing better than teleportation would be to have a castle that can live in 4 landscapes at once. Mine would be the emptiest parts of Washington (state) forest, Maine seaside, UK fields/lakes/meadows, and then somewhere slightly more populated I suppose so that I can ensure good internet service and veterinary care. And antique shops and secondhand book stores.

“Does it ever stop hurting?” she asked.
His green eyes glinted. “No. It never stops hurting. Grief is a knife blade. In time the sharpest edges may grow dull. And your heart may learn to beat around it. But the blade cannot be pulled out. It reshapes you on the inside. You can be whole again. But you cannot ever be the same.”
Rebecca Hammond Yager, Beauty & the Beast

“Real magic can never be made by offering someone else's liver. You must tear out your own, and not expect to get it back.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Cats can do whatever they want, whenever they want, without regard to what anyone says or does. Rather like Princesses.”
Terry Brooks, A Princess of Landover

“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

“Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
