Queen of Shadow Bay

‘Even baldness becomes a beauty of a hairless head through the heart of acceptance.’~ author unknown

Selected images that inspired the book, Queen of Shadow Bay, Book 2 in the Queens of the Castle Series!

Please note, I do not own the rights to the music, videos or celebrity images below. This board is merely a look inside my writing process and the images and sounds that inspired me to write this book about a kick ass, beautiful bald woman that is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer.
