When I wrote my biography for my book, and then again for marketing, I had to write it in third person. I didn't like that. It felt weird writing about myself from the point of view of someone else. So I decided that here, I'd tell you about me the way I want to. Here it goes: I've lived in the same town for almost half a century. I am an accountant (yeah, I know...totally NOT writer-ish, but it pays the bills.) I love all things that are British, sparkly, or magical. I don't like to travel; in fact, I don't even like to go to the grocery store. I'm happiest when I'm at home with my pets.

I am, by nature, an introvert. I’m hard-wired to do things like only leave the house when necessary, be more of a listener than a speaker, a... Read more of this blog post »

I found out about this book on Instagram.  The subject is one I’m deeply interested in and passionate about, so I pre-ordered the book so I’d have the chance to read it as soon as it came out.  It arrived 6 days ago, and I finished it today—I’m a fas ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author speaks candidly about the events that led up to her reading tarot cards. It was very interesting because she does not claim to have been born with any gifts for seeing things; rather, she worked to fine tune ...more

I didn’t finish this book (I came close) because it was so long and I wasn’t enjoying it enough to keep trudging along, so I decided to give up and start another book that was on my TBR list.
I gave it four stars because I think the writing was really
