About this author

Charity Bishop is funny, quirky, analytical, a little sentimental, and occasionally forgetful, with an offbeat sense of humor, a tendency to like sci-fi, and a storehouse of knowledge about “useless trivia.” She gets fixated on learning things, and obsesses over them until she knows everything there is to know about them, then looks for something new to learn.

Reckless by Cornelia Funke
"Good story, but I wish the character development was better. Characters and their problems arrive so suddenly on the page, it felt like there were whole chapters of back-story missing."

A quick, easy read, full of tons of creativity and interesting twists on the lore of Faeries and other mythological creatures. Both scary and funny, the characters are memorable, but the author doesn't always explain things fully and at times I got a ...more

Terry Pratchett
“And then Jack chopped down what was the world's last beanstalk, adding murder and ecological terrorism to the theft, enticement, and trespass charges already mentioned, and all the giant's children didn't have a daddy anymore. But he got away with it and lived happily ever after, without so much as a guilty twinge about what he had done...which proves that you can be excused for just about anything if you are a hero, because no one asks inconvenient questions.”
