Welcome to Fairless Grove Academy
I've just had the pleasure of spending a few days here, paying homage to the Muse and revisiting old haunts. (All puns intended.) I made my first visit to St. A several years ago; you might say the city "spoke" to me as it revealed its ghost tours, graveyards, and great architecture.
This is a photo of the bayfront mansion that serves as my inspiration for Fairless Grove Academy, the school where Easter, Cal, and Andrew are sent to begin their Homefree education. It's a sprawling Victorian home complete with a turret and tangled tropical garden in back. Of course, no trip to St. A is complete without a ghost tour--as my fictional characters find out. I'll post some photos from that experience tomorrow....
