Nicole Dreibelbeis Hi,
I really enjoyed Brightly Woven- it was so different from a lot of what I've read recently! I read mostly young adult, and often fantasy, but I was really impressed with how original the story was.I had to say hello because I also went to WM (tribe pride!) and was so excited when I discovered you went there too.
Looking forward to more great books from you in the future...keep making the 'burg proud!
