Behind the Magic ~ In Which Gail Must Look Up 7 Strange Things

Some odd things I’ve had to look up, so far, for Book the Third:

  • Species of daphne
  • The name of the knob thing at the top of a banister (finial)
  • The anatomy of a ladybug (part of the beetle family, as it turns out)
  • Actual definition of a portmanteau
  • History of Soho
  • The name of Elizabeth Gaskell’s cat
  • How to spell in flagrante delicto

Have I mentioned recently how much I enjoy being a writer?
