Animals in Silhouette

Animals in Silhouette (2018)  Post 415

Animals in Silhouette is a collection of playful animal poems illustrated by silhouettes. The thirty-five verses cover an eclectic mix of animals from bats, aardvarks and butterflies to cows, dogs, cats and frogs.  Some  of them are directly about the animals, but others take a subject and use it to make a point. The Ancient Hare, for example, takes an 18th Century engraving to riff on the way people lived in 1754. Then there's Rat-Race, Flittermouse and Swan Ballet.

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books. As of February 18th 2018 I STILL haven't run out of books, but many of those still to come are MIA by which I mean I don't have copies and remember little about them. There are more new books to come, and I'll certainly showcase those, but in between times, I'm profiling some of my characters, just for a change. Thank you so much to everyone who's come along on this journey so far!
