No one has the right to tell an author what he should or shouldn't write, but we can advise people about what to read, so here's my advice. Think of The Bunker Diary as itself the bunker, its readers as the kidnapees, and the author as the remote, go ...more

Thoroughly enjoyed this novel—the mystery and especially the wildly contrasting main characters. Theo's resourcefulness in stretching money and carrying on with very little has seldom been seen since the Great Depression and fascinates her luxuriousl ...more

I loved The Real Boy for the palpability of its world; the struggle of the main character, Oscar, to become a friend and human being; and for the power of its theme, articulated in the end by Oscar: "there is no magic without monsters."

Though this book’s playful cover image suggests everything inside will be okay, really, this contemporary realistic tale is quite a bit grimmer than that—pun intended. Saucy & Bubba’s creative gingerbread-making stepmother turns witch when she dr ...more

Sue Cowing So true, Elaine. That's why I'm liking school visits more and more. You get to be with the people you write for and about, you don't have to worry if anyone besides your immediate family will show up, and elementary kids treat writers like rock stars!


Elaine Masters Sue, remembering how grateful I was years ago, when you showed up at one of my book signings downtown with a lei and a cheerful sit-awhile, I returned the favor yesterday with Jordan Seng at Logos. Sure enough, he was doing the usual book signing thing, trying to look engaged and cheerful, expectantly waiting for buyers who weren't showing up. I lei'd him and chatted awhile, commiserating how our book signings aren't like we dream of. I once had a friend ask how I handle writers cramps, signing all those books. LOL
