Mirrorworld, Inkworld and....
Cornelia on her projects in 2017
I am working on many projects at the moment. As you know I like to have many different dishes on my writing table. After all... Who wants to eat the same thing every day?
There is of course "The Islands of the Fox", the fourth Reckless adventure.
Then there is "The Labyrinth of the Faun", my novelization of Guillermo del Toro’s "Pan's Labyrinth", including 10 short stories I wrote about motives in the film.
I am doing research on Native American and New Zealand mythology for the next "Dragon Rider" adventure.
And I will continue working on "The Colour of Revenge", the Inkworld sequel,
in March 2017.
Oh yes, and then there are of course small projects to play with… the desserts one could say: I wrote a sequel to the picture book "Fabers Schatz", and I am illustrating a friend’s story about a gopher and a skunk, which is much fun.
2017 will be an exiting year for me both as a writer and an illustrator, as A Griffin's Feather will be published in many languages, including Spanish and English.
And I will for the first time publish a picture book that I wrote in English and illustrated myself - with my own publishing company Breathing Books. It’s called "The Book no one ever read".
Then there will be an opera in Germany and an art exhibit in Karlsruhe, which for the first time will show bigger paintings of mine and….. well, many things, and some of them, I am sure, will even be a surprise for me.
Merry Christmas from Los Angeles!
