Welcome to The Mirror Maker blog. It’s about a journey… the story of a story unfolding… one that crosses the centuries from the Court of Louis XIV to the Industrial Revolution and beyond. It is about longing and death and the art of mirror making. At it’s heart is a love story…

The Mirror Maker is also about my own journey – one of picking up a story thread I’d cobbled together years ago – and setting myself the goal of turning it into a novel while documenting the process day by day, so you can share it with me. I have never written a novel before, (though I’ve procrastinated over two or three ideas for novels) so there will be mistakes and heartache I’m sure! But, why keep putting it off? I’m also not a blogger… so this should be interesting.

I hope you think so too.
