Lucy usually writes scary novels like The Mysterious Mummer or Walking with the Dead (a Silver Birch Winner) but here she's collaborating with my daughter Robin McNicoll to touch up some illustrations on a new graphic novel. It's still in grant proposal stage so I don't want to say too much about it. I did read the first fifteen pages and it's hilarious. I hope Canada Council juries like having their funny bones tickled. Still who cares, as long as I can buy and read the whole book soon. Attracted by the hum of creativity, Hunter sat down to watch the process and in the end, received an autographed first draft, worth millions once Lucy takes over for J.K. Rowling.
