I’m an entomologist and a soil biologist, which is a fancy way to say that I dig in the dirt, looking for bugs. Nature and books have always been my passion. I was a kid when I read Ivanhoe by Sir W. Scott and fell in love with medieval novels. Then I discovered medieval fantasy, and I fell in love again. In fact, I took it too seriously and believed that my elderly, bearded neighbor was Merlin and his black cat was Morgan le Fey. When I read Harry Potter and learned about Animagi, I knew I was right. Then I grew up and… nah, I’m joking. I didn’t grow up. Don’t grow up, folks! It’s a trap.
PS I hate gardening. There, I said it. Sorry fellow Kiwis.

Five stars for this beautiful, romantic and heartbreaking Christmas novel. This is the third book in the Governess series, but it reads as a standalone. Although you might want to read the previous two books (they're fantastic) to get every detail.

Wilma Mankiller
“A significant number of people believe tribal people still live and dress as they did 300 years ago. During my tenure as principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, national news agencies requesting interviews sometimes asked if they could film a tribal dance or if I would wear traditional tribal clothing for the interview. I doubt they asked the president of the United States to dress like a pilgrim for an interview.”
Wilma Mankiller

Gloria Steinem
“Swiftboating enters the English language as a verb that means attacking strength instead of weakness. In feminist and other social justice contexts, this has long been called trashing, attacking leaders for daring to write, speak, or lead at all. Taking away the good is even more lethal than pointing out the bad. p.189”
Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road

Gloria Steinem
“Anybody who is experiencing something is more expert in it than the experts.”
Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road

Michelle Connor
“Herveus is impervious to emotions, but Aveline has unlocked something in him. He is drowning in a great wave, just trying to get back to the shore. The main memories he has from his childhood are of hunger. Just the echo of the gnawing pain makes him double over clasping his stomach. The other strongest memories are of violence—beatings from strangers leaving him unable to move for days. In all the haunting recollections, it had always been just him, alone. How could I forget my sister? It was like an impenetrable gate had opened in his mind, bringing forth another set of sad blue eyes from a time forgotten. I hadn’t been alone”
Michelle Connor, Hers To Save Complete Series

Nick Hornby
“This is the second Simply Red song on this tape. One's unforgivable. Two's a war crime. Can I fast-forward?”

Duane Simolke Thanks for the follow! BTW, I noticed the following in your bio: "Then I discovered medieval fantasy, and I fell in love again. In fact, I took it too seriously and believed that my elderly, bearded neighbor was Merlin and his black cat was Morgan le Fey. " My book The Acorn Stories has a cat with the same name, because of a character's love of Arthurian legend! Nice to meet you!


Barbara Russell Hi Pamela :) Tnx, back to you!
