Black Swans - A Novel Inspiration!

Black Swans at the Steinhardt Estate, Mount Kisco, New York

I was so excited to see not just one but an entire flock of black swans at a recent Garden Conservancy Tour (Judy & Michael Steinhardt Estate in Mount Kisco, New York) They are native to Australia.

A black swan plays a central part in my current YA novel, and, quite honestly, I never expected to see one in the feather, so to speak! They are just as beautiful and graceful as white swans but perhaps a bit more mysterious and exotic. This one swam directly to me and posed. Did I mention that black swans are thought to be psychic?

  1. They are so beautiful. I hate to admit that I didn't even know there was such a thing as a black swan!!!

    I want to thank you so very much for the sweet words you left on my blog today. You have no idea how much they meant to me (and Truffles!) :)
