About this author

I was raised on a cattle ranch in Northern California (outside a town called Lincoln which is now part of an enormous sprawl). I taught myself to ride a horse at the age of six, as no one had the time to teach me—they were all busy learning how to irrigate, how to cajole an angry bull into another field, how to pull a calf… Afraid of heights, and absolutely sure I was going to die, I managed to scramble up on the back of a very patient and lazy strawberry roan destrier, and plod off into the sunset.

Got up at early dark thirty and took the boy for his test in Portland. He got me up twice last night to let me know that he’d been sick, poor kid. The traffic was more obnoxious than I hoped for, but not as bad as I feared. We got checked in and boy ate his radioactive food, then started getting x-rays.

This book is so flipping good. I loved Delia's Shadow and I can't believe I love Barricade in Hell more. Doesn't seem possible. So well written and such a good story. Love love love.

I'm not sure a three or four star is in order. Here's the thing. There are problems for me with the writing. A lot of things happen quickly, the stuff about her dad and mom lacks depth and so do a lot of her reactions and some of the plot foundations...more

“Just remember, I am not going anywhere,” he said, still watching her lips. “And if you ever try to hide from me, I will not believe you are dead. I will find you. Count on it.”
Diana Pharaoh Francis, Crimson Wind

“You got a problem?"
"Aside from the fact that we are about to die? No. But I want to say thank you before it is too late.”
Diana Pharaoh Francis, Bitter Night

“There were some days that deserved to be drowned at birth and everyone sent back to bed with a hot brandy, a box of chocolates and a warm, energetic companion. Today was without question one of those days.”
Diana Pharaoh Francis, The Cipher
