Little Sister Song on Wattpad has just hit 150,000 reads since I started publishing it in December 2018 – beyond my wildest expectations! I’ll be posting a few blogs to celebrate.

Tiger Mountain House – updated
I’ve updated the digital composite picture I made of Wynter’s home on Tiger Mountain. This one adds the garage and improves the driveway. On the left is the concrete area used as a basketball court. The goat pen, veggie patches, and “Wynter’s garden” with the stone wall are hidden by the main house.
Caleb’s house in Seattle + Caravan (The Sims 3)
As well as making the Tiger Mountain home in The Sims 3, I also made Caleb’s house in Seattle – the house where Wynter shows up on the doorstep one cold January afternoon. This one was a lot simpler to build, and currently my Sims family is living there.

Doorways: Wynter Wild Houses Part 1: Locations
I often “drive” through cities and suburbs on Google Maps to get a feel for how a place looks, even if those descriptions don’t end up in my writing. I live in suburban Melbourne, which has many suburbs with their own distinctive and very Australian flavor. So it’s fascinating to me to compare American locationsContinue reading “Doorways: Wynter Wild Houses Part 1: Locations”
