As writing is a mental sport one gets drained occasionally so it is also necessary for writers to take vacations two or three times a year and do something different, in fact everything except writing works! Then one can return to the writing energized and inspired.(less)

"Virkilega spennandi bók og afar erfitt að leggja hana frá sér. Endaði með að klára hana á einum degi. Bókin er afar hröð og heldur lesanda við efnið. Hörkugóð spennusaga með hæfilega miklu rómantísku ívafi.
Bíð spenntur eftir næstu bók Lilju Sigurðar" Read more of this review »
