Where did the story come from?
Years ago, I bought a book called Masquerade by Kit Williams. Completely intrigued by the story of the Moon falling in love with the Sun, a hidden jewel (true story) crafted by the author who then buried it somewhere in Britain, my love of bunnies, fascination with the Arthurian legend, the allure of treasure hunts, fondness for Cornwall, and my affinity for children’s adventures and mystery, I combined all those things, chose Easter as the holiday, and Tintagel Castle as the location and, there you have it.
