About this Series
In my dark love story “Carving Grace,” figureheads wander the streets at night in pursuit of happiness—yours. In honor of its publication in NEHW Press’ Wicked Creatures this month (get your copy here: https://bit.ly/WickedC), I’m celebrating figureheads for 2021 Poe Season!
In Salem this summer, I discovered a collection of figureheads called The Lady of Salem Maritime Public Art Celebration, https://www.salem.org/listing/lady-salem-maritime-public-art-celebration/. I took photos of as many as we spotted, and thought if, they were figureheads in my story, what would each be thinking? I made up their names (except for where indicated) and included sponsor and artist names if they were legible.
