"A mystery thriller heavily flavoured with the paranormal. Enjoyed the characters and the mystery component as I couldn't predict how the novel would end. That's always a huge plus for me.

Loved the setting the bleakness, starkness, isolation of Ola..." Read more of this review »

Grimm Conversations is my favorite read so far of 2016.

It’s an excellent collection of 14 Grimm character conversations you could only “overhear” in the wonderfully re-imagined fairy tale world of writer and poet Marie Lecrivain. You read that right

“The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Parliament of Birds

Geoffrey Chaucer
“What is better than wisdom? Woman. And what is better than a good woman? Nothing.”
Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Purity in body and heart
May please some--as for me, I make no boast.
For, as you know, no master of a household
Has all of his utensils made of gold;
Some are wood, and yet they are of use.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Then you compared a woman's love to Hell,
To barren land where water will not dwell,
And you compared it to a quenchless fire,
The more it burns the more is its desire
To burn up everything that burnt can be.
You say that just as worms destroy a tree
A wife destroys her husband and contrives,
As husbands know, the ruin of their lives. ”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Ful wys is he that kan himselve knowe.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Riverside Chaucer
