So this got me to thinking...how much of an investment IS a chair for someone who spends most of their...

Right, so Passion Blue by Victoria Strauss really reminded me of some of the more historically dense YAs that were optional additional reads in grade school. You know, like The Tamarack Tree. Since I was a total nerd, I always enjoyed these books (and read ALL of them, blowing the curve), but t... Read more of this blog post »

Dear Friends,


It’s a bittersweet moment for me as I think back over the Lakeshore Chronicles series. When Summer At Willow Lake was published, the topic was a 50th wedding anniversary, based on the celebration my family had for my parents. In fact, I dedicated the novel to them.

He is nothing but sweat and heat and movement. Sand sprays into his eyes as Hephaestion throws him to the ground, but he catches himself, grit digging into his palms. Alexander quickly flips himself upright. Sitting on bales of hay, their friends Telekles and Phrixos cheer loudly.
