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)

In middle school I had the idea of designing six magical clans based on the rainbow colors (no, I don't count indigo). 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 liked the book more than I thought I would. I've heard it's basically the Giver crossed with Hunger Games, and it lived up to that reputation. Personally, I hate love triangles, but this one wasn't as bad as I expected. Cassia has a minimum amount ...more

The climax of this book was absolutely hilarious. I read it out loud to my family last night--or tried to, because I kept cracking up and had to stop and catch my breath.
Mira's Griffin by Christie Valentine Powell
"A very unique story with many allegories to our world today. The author built a credible world of fantastic creatures interacting with humans.

The story got a little wordy in places for me, but overall, an enjoyable book to read.

“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
