That's right! In the city where J.K. Rowling wrote HARRY POTTER(S). You might recall that she was talking to Daughter, seen above.

So then, of course we had to visit Edinburgh Castle. Behold the magnificence. Yes, Peepy is stunning, and so is the castle . . .

Edinburgh was so enchanting. We were there for the Christmas and in honor of Peepy, the whole city was lit up!

A tradition of great literature lives on in Edinburgh. Here's the Writers' Museum. . .

(I must admit the mannequins of Robert BurnsWalter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson sort of creeped me out -- especially since they talked.)

In the meantime, can you guess who was the Western Washington SCBWI Person of the Week. Here's a HINT!

===========================

Oh, look! These books make lovely gifts for you or someone you know, or someone you may know sometime. If you'd like an autographed book, order from Vroman's. Be sure to tell them that you'd like me to sign them, and include the name(s) of who the books should be made out to. Then they will mail it/them to you!"
