About this author

I've led a very eclectic life!


I'll start with my first real-world job. It's as far from jewelry design as it could possibly be -- four years in the US Air Force. Joining right from high school, I spent a year in California learning Korean, and then off to Osan AB, Korea, to work an Intel position. Lots of fun (except for chemical warfare exercises), but no beading. I never even thought of it.

A clever and imaginative graphic novel wrapped around a moral. Zack brought it home from school and I loved it.

If you read books because of my rating, be fully warned...this is a Lolita-esque book that is very polarizing. My love of the book has more to do with when it was first given to me 20-odd years ago, not the writing.

Considering my daughter in law is currently in her internship and I was pre-med in college, I was captivated by this book.

Lori Anderson Yeah, why does crochet get the short end of the stick, LOL?

Toni berkshire Hi, Lori - glad to meet you. Knitting books sounds good. I just finished, 'Died in the Wool', and Knit fast, Die Young, by Mary Kruger and Indigo Dying by Susan Witting Albert. Personally, I crochet, but haven't found many murder book series about crocheting, yet.
