The Yarborough is a type of knife awarded to Special Forces soldiers during their graduation, after completing Q Course. Each knife has a personalized serial number, which is absent on civilian versions of the knife.
Since Kate is for all practical purposes a Green Beret (and beyond), one of my headcanons is that she received her own personalized Yarborough after her Batwoman training was complete.
This is the cover I designed for Michelle Andreani & Mindi Scott’s new novel called “The Way Back to You.” The awesome folks at Harper Collins sent me a few copies before and now it makes me giddy every time I see it in my shelf. Special shoutout to Kate Engbring and the whole team for doing a great job layouting everything :)
Annabel’s last line brought this song, “Always You” by Ingrid Michaelson, to mind immediately, and I felt compelled to create a visual to accompany it. I’ve been so inspired by these characters and the love between them that is tangible and unmistakable, especially when brought to such a bittersweet conclusion. Shipwrecked has created something very special in Poe Party, and Mary Kate Wiles and Sean Persaud give depth and meaning to all the interactions of these beloved characters.
Poe’s revelation about Annabel inspired this video. Enjoy.
