Michael Rowe is the author of the horror novels Enter, Night, Wild Fell, and October. I consider him to be a master of the Canadian Gothic, if there is such a creature. After reading his emotionally devastating Wild Fell, I felt inspired to do a drawing based on it, featuring the dark witch at story’s center, Rosa Blackmore. Michael asked to buy it, and a friendship was born.
Michael is also a journalist as well as the author of three non-fiction books. He is the winner of the Lambda Literary Award and was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award.
This drawing was a gift for my cousin Shweta. There are also matted 8”x10” prints available for $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping (in the United States 🇺🇸). If you’d like one, email me at SacredGlyphs[at]outlook.com.
My battle with depression is my own private “Forever War,” and will likely be fought on the battlefield of my heart until the day I die. The title to Elton John’s famous song seemed an appropriate title for my drawing, as well.
My gifted friend and once-upon-a-time co-author, Mary SanGiovanni, has a brand new novel coming out August 28th. You can preorder Behind the Door for Kindle, or a variety of formats, and early buzz indicates that it is not to be missed. So please, check it out, along with the first Kathy Ryan novel, Chills.
