The New Character Wears a Homberg Hat

Homberg HatWhile writing Chapter Seven in my novel, Norman in the Painting, a new character arrived wearing a business suit and a Homberg Hat. He’s  a stranger to the small town, and Jill mistrusts him. Maybe she should but maybe he’s a guide to the interdimensions Norman travels. It’s too soon to tell for sure.

  1. Well, does she see his pinky finger ring with a stone in it also? I do love hats, especially a Homberg. Very classy time traveler.
