The Real Maggie Armitage, White Witch

Reading & Writing

I know this should really be on the new Bryant & May website, but I’ve just finished writing ‘The Casebook Of Bryant & May 1: The Soho Devil’ – which will be the title of my first Bryant & May graphic novel with ‘Thunderbirds’ and ‘Commando’ artist Keith Page, and he asked me what white witch Maggie Armitage looked like, so I sent him this. In my last novel, she was revealed as having once been a Playboy bunny, which she really was. Here’s the picture that the artist Trademark painted of her from that period.

    She looks so…..surprised. And of course not at all how I picture her from the novels.

    That artist Trademark certainly does get around….

    Looks about right.

    The witches I know are generally unassuming “normal” people.

    It’s the Gothic sorts one has to be aware of – Terry Pratchett did this rather well.

    (Can I mention another author here? If not – sorry Chris.)

    Of course you can Alan, what do you think this is, Nazi Germany? We want arguments!!!

    Really? Charles Dickens, Carol Shields and Elizabeth Goudge. I would trust the present Maggie Armitage a long way but the ’60s James Bond-style cuddle, not so much. Maggie is one of my favourite characters.
