The nice people at O.W.L (Outrageously Wonderful Literature from the Middle Grades) did an interview and giveaway yesterday for The Obsidian Pebble.
This was great fun to do and it’s a great website for the age group I’m writing for.
Since Owl’s appear at night, when people are helpless and blind, they were linked with the unknown. Their eerie calls filled people with foreboding and apprehension. With superstitions dying out in the twentieth century – in the West at least – the Owl has returned to its position as a symbol of wisdom.
And on that cheerful note, I’ll say:
“What do you call an owl with a low voice?”
