I've always wanted to write books; early on, my fallback career choices were ballerina and astronaut. It has something of a surprise, though, to find myself writing thrillers. I am now working on a novel of historical fiction about one of my favorite paintings, Jan Van Eyck's Arnolfini Wedding.

A NOTE ABOUT MY REVIEWS: I include the following:

Five Stars: books of many genres that hang incandescently in my imagination

Everything else - unstarred: books that I admire in the genres of historical fiction, mystery & thriller, fantasy & fairy tales, Shakespeare, and History. For the sake of time and my sanity, I include here o

Once Upon a Time… the Power of Stories

Calling all storytellers: we desperately need stories of hope to outshine stories of hatred and fear.

“That the good that we do might live on after us, while the evil lies interred with their bones.”
Jennifer Lee Carrell, Interred with Their Bones

“But there were other great writers who had done all these things. What set Shakespeare apart...even from other greats, was his generosity: his invitation, even insistence,for others to join him in the act of imagining...His reticence [to add stage directions] made his works wonderfully elastic. It also made them demnding--sometimes maddeningly so--for directors and actors who had to figure out at every turn why these words and no others needed to be said right here and now. But Shakespeare was also demanding of his audiences: 'Yes,' you could almost hear him say, 'you are sitting in a fairly barren wooden theater. But dream yourselves to France. To a seacoast in Bohemia. To a magic-haunted island in a tempest-tossed sea. I dare you.' -Kate Stanley”
Jennifer Lee Carrell

“If you don't want the nickname, don't live up to it.”
Jennifer Lee Carrell, Interred with Their Bones

“There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

“I can call spirits from the vasty deep."

Why so can I, or so can any man. But will they come when you do call for them?”
William Shakespeare
