Being the daughter of a Research Librarian, books and information were always a 'gift,' and there is nothing I like more. In fact, if the NYPL would let me live in their basement, that's where I would be. I am very proud of my books - especially the 'Tallent & Lowery' series - which has been so well-received that I am beyond humbled. Being able to 'link' historical locations together and create puzzles that bestselling authors have called, "The Da Vinci Code With Heart"; "Action/Adventure Gold"; and "The Best of the 21st Century" has been beyond my wildest expectations. I am the Owner/Operator of The Write Companion; and I recently was beyond honored to be asked to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief of Hallowed Ink Press - an amazing t ...more

Amy Lignor I am so sorry for the delay, Robert. I was just told yesterday that I was going to be a Grandma for the first time...so the computer was off. LOL.

There is a site called The Feathered Quill that I work for - doing reviews for them and judging their competitions. The owner's name is Ellen and if you want to go on their site, look it over, and send her a message, she is a great person whose site definitely provides writers a "leap" in the review department. And they may just be sent to me. :)

The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
“Dogs, lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you're going to lose a dog, and there's going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can't support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There's such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”
Dean Koontz

Amy Lignor

“I never understood men. You boys long for freedom and then spend the rest of your lives looking for someone to take care of you and give you the things you didn't want in the first place. I hope to never have a son. I would have to hit him over the head, and beg the good Lord to take him back and insert a brain.”

“Spending time looking for what is missing in your life is futile; if you fail to look within yourself. When we challenge everything we believe we are, we reveal that which we never knew about our own selves.”
Nicolas G. Janovsky, Gay: A New Path Forward

“Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Listen Hard.
Practice wellness.
Play with abandon.

Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn.
Do what you love.

Amy Lignor You too. I very much am a fan of your company and do a great deal of reviews for some of the titles you release. Excited to receive more in the future. :) I do kind of wish there would be a few more titles that are historical romance - not English or 'damsels in distress' - more like a DaVinci Code-'esque' book with a romacne included - just a thought :) Have a great one!
