I appreciate everyone who takes the time to pick up my books, read them, and write some words about their experience. Never in my wildest dreams would I believe that my work is right for every reader. The only time I am taken aback is when a person has clearly not read the book and yet feels justified in commenting on it. That just doesn't seem fair. So I liked your review because I really do appreciate the time you took. One small error with your review is that she is not sent to the woods of New England. Rather she is sent to the Adirondack State Park which is in New York state. Thank you. (less)

somehow

“‘Somehow’ is a weasel word; it means the author didn’t want to bother  thinking out the story… When I teach science fiction and fantasy writing I ban the word. Nothing can happen ‘somehow,’” Ursula K. Le Guin, Steering the Craft






“Someday soon we all will be together


If the fates allow


Until then we’ll have tomorrows through somehow


So have yourself a merry little Christmas
