My inspiration for creating Lord Silverton

 

To be perfect honest, Lord Silverton grew organically as I wrote. The image of him came to me strongly from the moment I saw him in the first chapter and he became more insidious as my story developed - making him the perfect villain. Cursed with salivary incontinence, he's one of those characters who continually grosses me out - even though I created him!

 

I was fortunate to win this fabulously grotesque illustration of him in a Twitter competition run by illustrator,

Eleonora Mignoli.

Early readers describe Lord Silverton as:

  • toady and nauseating

  • wonderfully horrible

  • fabulously disgusting
