I am a author, artist, speaker. I have worked in a developing country, travelled extensively, tasted other cultures, experienced life and death and life. Through it all I have observed, and those observations fill the pages of my books. I still believe in magic. :))

Ok, it's true, Philippa Gergory's historical fiction from the 1400s is my reading candy. Her writing style pulls you in with its lyrical quality and sensitive descriptions. Her characters come to life and you feel them, care about them, care with the

Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger is a historical fiction novel. I didn't like the title at all. So, that was a hard start for me. Titles are important to me, they are a framework, a place to start. And I didn't like this starting place. But I wa ...more

There was a lot going on in this book, too much really. I think some of the main characters took too much of a sideline to a few of the other characters and consequently none were really fleshed out and developed. And there was a lot of repetition. T ...more
