I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

Michelle Griep Michelle Griep said: " Slogged about halfway through this one. Great writing, just happened to move on to something else, so apparently it didn't grab me at the time. I'm willing to give it a second look in the future, though, so that I can finally finish this epic tale. "

The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep
"An incredible adventure that begins at the notorious Dartmoor Prison, and almost comes full circle, with oh so much in between. So descriptive, so richly written - this is in a class of its own.

Michelle Griep Hey, it's my honor indeed to have you as a friend! Looking forward to peeking at what you're reading, my dear!

Kara thanks for adding me to your friend list, Michelle, blessings !!

Lisa Greetings! I feel like deja vu since I had just started to get ready for our interview. It's good to see you here. Did you read all the Mary Stewart books? I didn't think I was going to start plugging in everything I read, but every once in a while, I recall someone I loved and then have to sort through them. Am I about the only other person who has an actual copy of hte Areopagitica on her living room book shelf? We had to study it in college.

Lisa

Rebornbutterfly I have so many favorites! My constant favorite is Jane Austen. I haven't read any Georgette Heyer books, and i've been wanting to! which of hers would you recommend?


Michelle Griep Wow, thanks so much, Jane! That's great. I really appreciate it!
