Elizabeth Fisher lives in east Tennessee and has deep Appalachian roots that involve all the usual elements—moonshine stills, horse thieving ancestors and rumors of illicit banjo pickin’. Fortunately, due to her father’s less felonious North Carolina heritage, Fisher makes an honest living as a freelance writer, editor and graphic designer. In her spare time, she reads, hikes and attempts to oil paint. She believes she’s making great strides in creatively incorporating the errant hairs of her cats—Buck and Bozo—into her still lifes. Her loving husband, Tim, is not so sure.

The Extreme Active Voice

We readers prefer a narrative that flows in “active voice” sentences. We might not realize it, we might not even know what active voice is, but trust me, we readers prefer it. Why? Simply put: active voice means better, faster reading comprehension.

For example, read these two sentences, then ask yourself which one reads "easier."

Curse Me Not (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 08, 2016 11:06AM
Description: Southern Appalachian unsophisticate Elzetta Swan has recently gained a rare ability considered very lucrative in her reality. She can see people’s auras and clean revenge curses off those auras. Even though the gift comes wrapped in premature menopause and ill-timed hot flashes, Elzetta embraces it faster than grass through a goose. As the story opens, she’s about to finish her first year as a legally licensed bodywasher with a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank. Suddenly a routine aura cleansing turns ugly. Elzetta suspects a professional invoker has come to town—one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses. If that wasn’t bad enough, the invoker may be visiting at the invitation of a mysterious local with a malicious hard-on for revenge. Well-intentioned but often out of her depth, Elzetta attempts to track down the culprits. In doing so, she faces deadly threats to both her trendy new life and the hallelujah hankering she’s formed for a reluctant—and way too sexy—urban white knight who’s crossed her path.

A very poetic narrative for women of any age to read. The characters were drawn so well, I became OCD or became an 88-year-old facing a future of memories alone. A fast read, but I didn't skip-read as is my nature when the plot is okay but the narrat ...more

The spine of this novel was marked by the library as a "Mystery" which I found after reading it to be most misleading. I suppose I think of mysteries in a Agatha Christie vein. This novel is most definitely NOT that. It's a solid piece of historical ...more

Thoroughly enjoyed this character-driven exploration into the world of "unplugged" American nomads. With a protagonist whose last name is Heist you know you're onto something different. And I appreciated the touching bit of romance as well.

Absolutely lovely. This novel was written so well and the plot was so intriguing I couldn't put it down and read it in two sittings. The lingo was spot on and I definitely felt transported to the 1920s. I also learned some surprising facts about Port ...more
