Short Version:
I turn wickedly strong tea into historical fantasy fiction in which the gods, heroes, and myths of Ancient Greece come to life as you've never seen them before. When I'm not creating worlds or killing off characters, I wrangle honeybees to add a little adventure into my non-writing life.

Long Version:
Tammie Painter grew up in the creative world of Portland, Oregon, and she continues to call the City of Roses home. Although she spent years working as a chemist in a behavioral neuroscience research lab, she could never quite tame her passion for writing.

After our little side trip into local library culture last week, we’re back in Ireland this week. And while we may be bidding a sad (and buttery) farewell to Kilkenny, it’s time for new locales and for Finn McSpool to experience his version of self-discovery. Yeah, probably best not to guess what that means, just keep reading.

Our first stop on our final whirl through the streets of Kilkenny, a...

"The comics strip seems like a cross between Calvin and Hobbes and Cul de Sac, although it not as good as either of these... yet. It is very early days that are included in this book and it gets better as the book progresses."

I've never read an Evelyn Waugh book before, but I have to say, after reading this, I can see myself going on a Waugh Binge. The story is sad and funny and sometimes you just want to slap the characters for their behavior. A great read!!
