I wanted to give the barmaid a story, and I had also thought up the idea of having a world where the only magic was in (mostly fairly mundane) potions. I started writing, liked her chemistry with the main male character, and decided it needed to be a romance. Now the barmaid has her Happily Ever After.(less)

Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik

It’s been a while. Sorry. But today I’m back with a rollicking ride for you all. Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik was an absolute treat of a book.
