Here is the lovely and talented Chelsea Meredith performing as my character Hallett in the dance choreographed by Liz Baybak of Dance Makers, Inc. in Florida.
The dance continues as Hallett swirls up the aerial silk to remove Quarl’s mask and embrace him. (This is where I emotionally lost it in the audience.)
Here I am at the podium, trying to keep it together—one of most emotional moments of my life.
Finally, here’s a color detail from Fred Jordan’s illustration to “An Acolyte of Black Spires,” showing Quarl in the foreground and Hallett in the background. The original is larger and taller, and when I get a good representation of the whole image, I’ll post it.
(Yes, it is currently my banner for the website. Wouldn’t you put it up there?)
