I live in my imagination so much that it's nice to invite people in for a cup of coffee every once in a while. I like how being a writer somehow legitimizes daydreaming as a real profession. (less)

[image error]All journeys begin and end at a crossroad. The Plough and Thistle Inn was built at the main crossroad of Grassmarket and was the only lodging in the entire country of Aberdour that could accommodate all the races of Gryphendale no matter the size.

Jane Austin is by far my favorite author, which is surprising since she isn't my typical genre of book. It still can remember my emotions the first time I read Pride and Prejudice. I was completely captured. Her humor and wit inspire me. So when I ca ...more

Nasty Leftovers by Guy L. Pace
"Nasty Leftovers
by Guy L Pace

The story takes place after what must have been one heck of a battle involving all kinds of creatures, that took place in the book, 'Sudden Mission', one that I hadn't read. Despite that, the story holds up as a standal..." Read more of this review »

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
"I should have figured from the title, Three Dark Crowns, that this book was going to be a little too dark for me. Maybe dark isn't the work I'm looking for. How's irritating? Although there was only really one thing I found truly insufferable, and..." Read more of this review »

Terry Pratchett
“Living this long's not as wonderful as people think. I mean, you get the same amount of youth as everyone else, but a great big extra helping of being very old and deaf and creaky.”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith

C.S. Lewis
“A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Dr. Seuss
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

Lloyd Alexander
“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander
