"First of all, I know you're looking at my rating and wondering what's wrong with me. For one thing, this book's gotten at least 4 stars from everyone else. For another, everyone seems to think that it's the best book of the year.

John Thank you for accepting my friend request!

message 10: by Donita

Donita I thought I recognized your name. Nice to meet up again.

message 9: by Sally

Sally Chambers Thanks, long-ago-friend, for adding me as a Goodreads friend! Love that you have delved into dragons!

Donita Sandra and Hylian Princess and Janeen-san, you have brightened this cold and dreary winter's day.

Sandra Mckenzie I'm 64 years old,and have enjoyed reading the books of yours that I've read so far. I will have to look into some of the author's that you recommend. Thank you for writing such wonderful stories. xxxx

Hylian Princess I love your books! I love fantasy, and I've enjoyed the world you have created!


Empress Thanks for accepting my friend request, Donita! :) I haven't read any of your books yet, but I hope to in the future. If C.S. Lewis and Edward Eager influenced your writing, there's a good chance that I'll love it. :)

Penwick I found out quite by accident what an orant is. I hadn't noticed before. Now I see it!

Dorothy Book recommendation: The only book every adult needs. Great baby shower gift. If I'd Only Known...Sexual Abuse in or out of the Family: A Guide to Prevention.

The book every parent/caretaker needs to keep children safe. Seven compelling parent approved and child tested techniques to thwart would-be sex offenders.

Beth Hi Donita,
Thanks for befriending this mystery author. I'm looking forward to your January Write Brain presentation to Pikes Peak Writers!
