I write unsettling stories from my tiny farm in rural New Mexico. I'm working on a four-book collection (one for each season) wherein the people who incautiously choose the rural life suffer tragically. I like my novels like the side of the moon: dark, lonely, and unforgiving.

The Witch Elm by Tana French
"French's talent lies in her characters - complex, contradictory, often unreliable, flawed and above all, deeply human. No exceptions here, although the build up to the central mystery takes a bit too long, and French could have probably cut a few tho" Read more of this review »

Barbara Kingsolver
“...we sang in church "Tata Nzolo"! Which means Father in Heaven or Father of Fish Bait depending on just how you sing it, and that pretty well summed up my quandry.”

Katherine Neville
“Nim unwrapped a loaf of fresh dilled rye bread and opened a crock of trout mousse. He slathered up a big slice and handed it to me. [...] We had thinly sliced veal smothered in kumquat sauce, fresh spinach with pine nuts, and fat red beefsteak tomatoes (impossibly rare at this time of year) broiled and stuffed with lemon apple sauce. The wide, fan-shaped mushrooms were sauteed lightly and served as a side dish. The main course was followed by a salad of red and green baby lettuce with dandelion greens and toasted hazelnuts.”

“...much of modern military tactics is geared toward maneuvering the enemy into a position where they can essentially be massacred from safety. (pg. 140)”

“Each Javelin round costs $80,000, and the idea that it's fired by a guy who doesn't make that in a year at a guy who doesn't make that in a lifetime is somehow so outrageous it almost makes the war seem winnable.”
