About this author

Sadie's bio used to claim she hails from the Southeastern United States, lives in Northwestern England, is a fan of all things Japanese, holds degrees in Anthropology/Comparative Religion, International Criminology, and Social Change, loves local coffee shops, geek culture, everything bookish, and tea (steaming with milk and sweet iced), as well as that she is married with two daughters and an imaginary dog.

She's repatriated and now owns a real, true-to-life, only modernly neurotic husky/malamute mix. The rest is still true.

On a side note, I use GR and my shelves to keep track of books I've read, hope to read, have been asked to read, intend never to read, etc. Thus they are full to overflowing. Don't judge, yeah?

I also keep Kindle-Lendab

Blood LustWeeeeelllll, I can officially say that books titled Blood Lust are apparently not likely to be for me. Wow, I am flabbergasted at how badly this challenge went.


I don’t usually use star ratings here on the blog. I want people to have to read the written review to know my opinion. But I’ve given each book a review post where that can be read, so for this wrap up I’m going to bring over the star r...

A Note in the Margin by Isabelle Rowan
"This book makes me cry and feeling melancholic, I think I need to find some murder mystery to deal with it *sigh*. Considered one of the "classics", meaning that it is often recommended to people who want to start reading LGBT fiction, I think tha..." Read more of this review »
A Note in the Margin by Isabelle Rowan
"I really don't know what else to add to the many excellent reviews. This novel is definitely a poppy poking way above the rest, already well into the foreign country of LGBT-literature as opposed to genre romance.

I've picked a few truly good ones..." Read more of this review »

Thank you Linda! It all looks wonderful. I saw your lovely review too. I'll have to look into the Tiptree. Off to Twitter, FB, etc.

Mëlissa  Bakër Wow, you read a lot of books! Thanks for finding and friending me on here too Sadie!! Blessings xx


Jacques Antoine Hi, Sadie. A colleague of mine recently told me about "wuxia", which apparently is a genre of Chinese martial arts fiction. It's usually about a heroic figure who protects helpless innocents.

Anyway, as soon as I heard this, it struck me that The Weeping Empress is like wuxia, though Muhjah and Senka strain the type a bit. I suppose my books are a more distant cousin of wuxia. One thing the genre is known for is gripping descriptions of fight scenes.

I thought I might read a few to try to learn something from them, especially about choreographing the fight scenes. The trick is finding readable translations. But I've heard that one or two have been translated well recently.

Wow, that sounds right up my alley. You're right, The Weeping Empress might fall on the edge of the category. I think your Emily Kane novels do too. I'm definitely going to try and find a good translation or two and look into it further. Wikipedia had a list of the most well known books, but not if they are in English. But look:

Goodreads has two small groups of Wuxia readers. I'd bet they could point us in the right direction. At the very least they have bookshelves. Thank for sharing. I'm a little excited now.


message 10: by Harv

Harv Griffin Hey, Sadie!

Finally getting around to a Print On Demand version of DAUGHTER MOON. I plan to put a slightly abridged version of your review of MOON on the back cover. Please say yes? My graphic artist wants fewer review words; I want tinier review words: but I think she's going to win. Hope you are doing well. In other news, I finally joined a GoodReads group: something about Time Travel . . . Cheers! @hg47

Of course yes! By all means. The book deserves to be in print and I'd be delighted to have contributed even the few small words. The groups can be addictive, be careful. :-)

I'm all for snarky friends! Keeps life interesting. (And yes, a fabulous and should be oft used phrase it was.)
