Pitlochry-Scotland-doorwithcobweb

Door of the day: The paint is peeling, the handle is rusting, and the keyhole is encrusted with cobwebs—what sort of adventure awaits? I came across this at the back of Moulin Church in Pitlochry, Scotland in 2014.

The churchyard at Moulin also features a Kirk Bell (first cast in 1749), a crusader’s grave from the twelfth century (look closely, and you will see the etching of a sword in the stone), and an ash tree that is growing on the site of the old “joug” tree—it was as the joug tree where offenders of crimes were shackled with a hinged metal collar for public display (and shame) until the requisite amount of time was passed for their atonement to be completed.

I’m posting my door inspirations from around the world to celebrate releases of The Secret of Zoone (paperback – January 28) and The Guardians of Zoone (February 25).

Zoone might be the nexus of the multiverse, with a thousand doors leading to a thousand worlds, but not all are easily opened and, sometimes, little critters come scuttling out of those keyholes!

You can find order links for the books HERE.
