Thank you, thank you, M.T.! I'm really glad you liked it and it evoked such a strong reaction in you. Your response is poetry unto itself—"like the water coalescing around your words into droplets, into dew..."—just fabulous.
I think we can call this a series, yes? I've already written another Girl in the Graveyard (II); we'll see where she might go after that. The beauty part is, I have no idea! It's fascinating following her around; I don't know how long her run will be.
And yes, we are all magic, here, creating magic every single day! Peace, my friend.
