New art work for Summer of the Netherfield Witch, and chapter 11

A horrible supernatural entity is torturing an old woman and threatening Jane Harris, so who should try to rescue her? Why Miranda Milan, of course! Oh, wait, she already tried that at the end of the last chapter. It didn’t work out too well. But that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, or at least in need of two aspirin chased down by a laudanum smoothie. And so “Miranda takes charge” in chapter 11 of Summer of the Netherfield Witch.

If you’ve not been reading this story, a new chapter goes up every Friday. And you can start with chapter one. Don’t worry, all the chapters are hyperlinked backwards and forwards.

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while know that cartoonist and illustrator E. J. Barnes sometimes supplies a bit of art for my stories; for example, that black-and-white drawing WordPress uses as an icon to identify this blog is the dragon-head walking stick from The Dragon Lady of StockbridgeFor this story, E. J. has supplied a drawing of Miranda Milan that so fits Miranda’s mood in this chapter (which E. J. had not read before finishing the drawing) that I’d almost say she’s psychic. And here it is:

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.

    Now, of course I’ll have to find out who is this Miranda woman… 🙂

    Eerie, Miranda looks like an old school-chum. It’s probably due to the hair, and the twisted mouth.
