"It is so strange lying here, even though I always knew this is where it would end. How many times did I see it? How many times did I say it? Maybe I willed it, going around and around and around...maybe I cast a spell."
--Satis House

This is the place to learn more about my novel in progress, a first-person account of Miss Havisham's life before Great Expectations. I am telling the full story behind one of literature's most eccentric, contradictory, and iconic characters. What Charles Dickens sketched out for his readers was only the beginning. Join me in discovering how and why Miss Havisham descended into madness.
