Larissa Reinhart Thanks for your friendship. Your book looks great! I grew up an Elizabeth Peters fan and had a strong interest in archaeology (minored in anthropology & majored in history/art history, even). Can't wait to read them!

BTW, I loved The Night Circus, too!


Catrina Roallos dear gigi, thank you for being my friend in the virtual (as well as the real) world. heart, catrina
