Mapping Wilderwood Hall by Karen McCombie

When I finished writing my latest novel – ‘The Whispers of Wilderwood Hall’ – it suddenly dawned on me how fab it would be to have a map, a floor-plan to be exact, of the Hall itself. It made sense, since virtually all the action (both in the present day AND the Hall’s 1912 hey-day) takes place there.

And so off I went and scribbled a messy plan on a random piece of paper. Then I tidied it up a bit, and pinged it off to my editor Lauren, to see what she thought of the idea. (See my scruff-tastic efforts below.)

Luckily, Lauren thought it was a splendid idea (yay!) and asked the Design Department at Scholastic if they could find someone to do it, you know, properly.

It’s fair to say I DROOLED when I saw the end result. Isn’t it flippin’ GORGEOUS?!

All for now, from a very happy author…

Karen McCombie :c)

  1. It is flippin’ gorgeous and no mistake . . . BUT where is the fountain?! I thought that rather elegant water feature gave your original design a certain hint of, dare I say, Versailles!
