I sometimes notice a place, a house or a building and it just catches my fancy and I know that sooner or alter it will appear in one of my stories. Look at this great front door and knocker, and what a good name Meldene…. Meldene may of course change into being a character… the Right Reverend Eustace Meldene, maybe? Or Timothy Meldene, head of house in a posh independent school? Or how about Maltravers Meldene who lives on a barge, a scion of a noble but decayed house, who tries to make his living with rather dodgy art? Maybe it should just remain as the name of a house…!
