It keeps me sane because it's the one thing in life that I can control. It's fun. So I fit it in when other people might be reading (I still do that sometimes too) or watching tv or playing games. Naptimes are great when the kids take them. So is movie time. And I like to carry a notebook around so that I can work on things when I have just a few minutes (like when waiting to pick someone up in the car). (less)

Then after college I had a dream about royals trying to escape a castle through doors hidden in unlikely places. I combined them and revised a lot and it evolved into the Spectra.(less)

I enjoyed the coming of age story of a spoiled rich boy becoming an honest, hard-working man. I must admit that I found the dialect in dialogue and all the ship terms hard to follow.

There were some surprising twists I didn't see coming. I enjoyed seeing the two women's relationship. There is a lot of detail about the areas they visit.

This book has some interesting twists. There's a lot of detail about her travels. I liked that the hero was a middle-aged woman and her college aged daughter instead of a more typical detective.

“It is a good rule after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.”
C.S. Lewis

“Satan wants to claim our souls and those of our children. He want our marriages and our families to fail. He wants darkness to reign. Despite thise, we needn't worry or back away from our duty to our family (present or future), our community, or others, for God will always support and bless us in our honest efforts t odo His will. He wants us to suceed more than Satan wants us to fail- and God is always more powerful.”
John H. Groberg, Anytime, Anywhere
