Channeling the Grandmothers

In my next novel, the sisters' grandmother plays a magical role in bringing them together (one was put up for adoption). I'm working on the first scenes the grandmother appears. Before she died, my mother gave me her mother's and her grandmother's wedding bands. I pulled them out of my jewelry box to call up the grandmother's spirit. I'll wear them while I write.

This is my father's mother. I'll see her this weekend during our family reunion. Ancestors, known and unknown, are important to the characters in my book. I'm looking forward to connecting with my own family this weekend. It'll be good for me and for my book.
