One of the pleasures of running Linda’s Book Bag is discovering new, young authors and today I am very pleased to welcome Tori L Wilson to the blog to stay in with me and tell me about a book inspired when she was very young.
Staying in with Tori L Wilson.
Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Tori, Thanks for staying in with me. Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
I have brought along The Skeleton Lady. I got the idea for this book when I was only fourteen years old. My dad had passed away the year before and I was having a difficult time processing the emotional pain I was in, so I created the character, who goes by the name of the Skeleton Lady, as a sort of human embodiment of those feelings
What an interesting way to deal with grief. I’m not surprised you were struggling. Tell me more. What can we expect from an evening in with The Skeleton Lady?
The Skeleton Lady will bring an evening filled with twists and turns, wild emotions, love, hate, and much, much more! Follow Oliver and Kayte as they are met with pure evil in human form, and must figure out how to escape the bonds of their captors.
(This sounds intriguing!)
I’d like to share a review from Nada Hosny, blogger at Early Bookish Birds:
The skeleton lady gave me the creeps! The writing was so easy to keep up with, I loved the simplicity especially with such a short story, it made everything easier. the story had so many, so many hidden lessons: abusive relationships, pleasing society, learning to say no, compassion friendship and love. I connected with the characters on an emotional level even though the journey was quite short but this story with written with so much love and effort. Overall: such a small quick read with so many deep emotions, it truly touched my soul.
(That’s a cracker of a review Tori. You must be thrilled.)
What else have you brought along and why?
I’ve brought a sketch of the main antagonist, the Skeleton Lady. On top of being an author, I am also currently in college, majoring in art education, and I love bringing the world of art in with the world of writing.
(I think the two mediums are often so closely linked Tori – an image can lead to writing and writing to images.)
Thanks so much for staying in with me to tell me about The Skeleton Lady Tori. I think it sounds fascinating and not a little scary!
