“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!” Goethe
When I was writing “How to Make a Golem (and Terrify People)”, it just seemed natural that Edda’s mother would take her to Loopy Lorna’s for a heart-to-heart. So that’s what they did. After the book was published, I sent a copy to Gaynor Salisbury, the owner of Loopy Lorna’s. She was thrilled to have her cafe featured in it. She invited me to her cafe for a pot of Honey Bunny Tea and a fabulous gluten-free apricot square.
Gaynor told me the story of Loopy Lorna’s, about how owning a community cafe had always been her dream and about some of the obstacles she has had to overcome to achieve that dream. Since becoming a published author, the connections I’ve made to other people who are also bringing their dreams to reality has felt like magic.
Stay tuned for a book event, coming to Loopy Lorna’s sometime in March 2012.
One thought on “Loopy Lorna’s: The Magic of Following Your Dreams”
I had no evidence, but instinct told me there *had* to be a Loopy Lorna’s in real life when I read that scene. “Honey Bunny Tea” simply could not be made up!
