It’s national teacher day, Gentle Reader.
Did you have a favorite teacher in fiction or real life?
I have been blessed with many fine and inspirational teachers. I’ve also gotten to write about teachers too in the Finishing School series.
I dug up these awesome old images featuring the teachers, and I thought I would share with you! Enjoy!
“The school sounds amazing, and I have begun to wonder which of the young debuts I most resemble.”
“…intensely creative fun that will have you laughing and falling in love with the characters in an instant.”
“The names alone are something to admire…”
~ A Review in the Bristol Herald Courier
“I also really enjoyed meeting her new friends Dimity, Pill and Soap. All three of them had amazing personalities and quips. The story wouldn’t be what it was without them.”
“The story is perfectly paced with just the right balance of action, character development, and setting detail.”
~ Laura Agnella of The Book Junkie
“Pink Panther meets Monty Python–that’s how I describe this fun YA steampunk novel.”
Meanwhile I’ve created a LIST over on Goodreads for…

Quote of the Day:
The images of Professors Braithwope and Lefoux aren’t quite right – Prof. B. has but a fussy little moustache (awful things! My great-great-grandfather had one, but bizarrely enough, it looked attractive on his Italianate face) and no other topiary, and Prof. L. doesn’t look Quite fierce enough, I think….
Lovely post, Gail. Thanks for the mention in your tinctures!
My pleasure, thanks for writing such smart things.
Questions here – thought them up late at night:
Do werewolves retain the capacity to faint?
Do the eyes of my Lord Rabiffano change colour when he’s aroused, or do they stay the same shade? (Or should one ask his Beta?)
They do if I need them too in a book…
