The Crooked Man
Laura Corbett was an inhabitant of Eastwold, and the daughter of Geoff Corbett. Her father had recently died and she started to sell off his books to Rance. She saw a new door in a library. She was married to Simon Corbett, a fictional character she had created. She knew he wasn’t real, but kept this secret, as her perfect fantasy.
She knew of the Crooked Man, as he came from a book her father had written. After Simon sacrificed himself to close a breach to the Land of Fiction, she brought up their son, Edward, with a new partner, a second father to Edward. (The Crooked Man)
