It's been a month of monsters for Fiona whose article about the legendary Beast of Gevaudan appeared in a recent issue of France magazine. What was the strange wolf-life creature that terrorized mountain farmers for several years?

In other monster news, she and her husband have just published the second volume of their B-Movie Cookbook, combining kitschy movies of the 1960s with themed menus. This is the sequel to Volume 1 (2017) which explored movies from the 1950s. Check out Fiona's Amazon Author Page to find these and her other books.

We're thrilled that Teri Carter received this award. Here's the official announcement from the Daisy Pettles House.

From Teri...Excepting a few upcoming pieces for The Washington Post, I’m focusing this summer solely on my book about stepfamilies. I have the bad first draft and am now working on the first full revision, which I hope to finish by the end of August. I was fortunate to be awarded the Daisy Pettles Residency for June — $1,000 and a month alone in a beautiful, 100 year old, Indiana house — to do the work without the normal distractions of daily life. A real gift.

Congrats Teri! We hope your residency is magical and productive.

We've implemented new safety protocols and have rearranged the workspaces to allow for social distancing and to ensure your comfort and safety. We think it looks marvelous!
