I've also always enjoyed learning, collecting, and reading about insects. Yep, I was that geeky kid growing up (and still am pretty geeky).

I started writing for fun in the early 2000s and I liked it so much that I ended up taking some classes (at Grubstreet, in Boston, MA), getting an editor (Arlene Prunkl, who is awesome!), and finally publishing.

World-building is one of my favorite parts of writing. There's something about scoping ou

It was good, but some of the descriptions went on and on and on. But, I like King’s ability to describe characters so succinctly.

A slow slog for me. I loved the TV series, but this book focused on the least interesting characters from the series making it tiresome for me to read. The best part was the last few pages.

" I gave it 2 stars. I found it repetitive and it didn’t capture my imagination or hold my attention, even while I was reading it. "
