The soon-to-be-published work is set in Wessex, England in the year 800 (a period Drew said she loves for its romance and mystery) and centers on a brash young knight who bites off more than he can chew. "But then, haven't we all?" Drew said. "The lesson here is that even a hero can fail. The important thing is not his failure, but how he turns it around."

The imagery display is open through Feb. 3 at lamorindaarts.org/online-galleries.
