    1. Hi Jenny,

      I love Higgins & Hawke too, but, the series didn’t really “take off” and from a business perspective it makes more sense for me to focus my time and energy on Ginger and Rosa. However, if I saw a real interest I could be persuaded to write another in the future. Q4U: what do you think of the covers? I’ve played with the idea of changing them to be more in line with what the Ginger and Rosa covers look like. IE: with character illustration.
