Tilly Higgins from The Moon Master's Ball

Well. Where to begin? I suppose I'll just jump in and say a little something about my Cinderella...


Tilly Higgins is the sort of person that most people take for granted. She’s always lived in the town of Winslow, everyone knows and likes her, and yet most, even the closest of her friends, have failed to realize that there has been something troubling her since she was a small child. Because of her dark past she is an introverted person who works hard at her job and concentrates on leading a normal life, and she certainly isn’t searching for a Prince Charming! It’s only because she feels bound by Lord Hollingberry, the dear old man she works for, that she ventures to return to the place that frightened her many years ago and… I can’t say anything else. This is a short story, after all! ;)


I don’t really know how I came up with Tilly’s personality. She’s not necessarily like any of my friends or family, but I hope she is someone that anyone who reads Five Glass Slippers will come to love and enjoy rooting for throughout The Moon Master’s Ball.

    1. Thanks, Allison! I really hope you like it. :)

  2. I'm looking forward to it! I hope the best for young Tillie! Right now, I have the Moon Master in my mind as either an ugly sort of fellow with a kind heart or a tormented young handsome man...I'm curious to see what he is. Wait, have you even said it's a he? Maybe not...hmmm...

    1. Hm. Interesting. You're not getting anything out of me, though! :D

  3. I love how varied all our Cinderellas seem! Really looking forward to reading The Moonmaster's Ball! :)

  4. I am excited to get to know Tilly, and I love her name! Also love the name Hollingsberry. It conjures a picture of a jolly, wise man who may be instrumental in helping Tilly find her destiny. (The name conjures the idea of Christmas in my mind). Perhaps he is magical? Can't wait to read the story!
