H.D Vesser (Alias Bart The Bat) H.D. grew up reading Piers Anthony (A Spell For Chameleon) Black Beauty, A Wrinkle In Time, and strangely enough, Stephen King novels.
Little did she know how much those books would influence her on her way to what she calls "Bartworld," her favorite escape from the world.
This entire world in her head came to be when an actual bat ended up in her house.
H.D. is lovingly re-writing her childhood through these books. Its the most fun place she's ever found...in her head. There are butterflies, bee's (some of which she and Bart hopes to save through stories ( Look forward to "Bart Befriends a Bee"(The Big Book Of Bee) the 4th book. (Buzz finds "Barbara bee- who is beloved to me!" lying on a table who is revived by Zoe in a easy way that anyone can try- Save a bee- she did! For real! )
There are all kinds of magical creatures in Bartworld.
H.D. had no idea what a big full of love world it would become when she started writing what she thought would be one book. (now 50 book ideas and counting.Some of which are children's books are planning some teen and pre-teen books, not to mention a biography.)
Quaking aspens and Dragons and horses and fairies OH MY!
Bartholomew (Or Bart The Bat for short) is H.D's alter ego. Which is pretty batty. Har har.
