She dreams of owning a pygmy goat, dancing with fire, and writing in the perfect tiny cottage with a mixed bulbs, perennials, and cut flowers garden as big as the front yard so she doesn't have to mow, a porch swing, a rose garden, some lovely trees worthy of a druid's adoration, a cozy fireplace, a big clawfoot tub, lots of room for her books, and an enchantment on her home so she never has to dust, vacuum, or do dishes and other tedious domestic chores.

"To be a witness to evil is to be human," Agent Pendergast says towards the end of this novel. It is my favorite quote from the book and accurately describes the psychopath Preston and Child created. Only a truly devious and warped human being could ...more

Vibrant, soulful, sensuous, fertile, feminine, wild, and melodic; these are words to describe the poetry of Brenda Cardenas, a local poet and professor at UWM. Her words are music and make me smile. She's a storyteller, an artist, and a confessor. It ...more

“The Bible was written by man to serve his own ends. Like society. Like the church. We use such things to control one another, but what right do we have to do so?”

“I want to leave all my friends and the sunlight for a small, rainy town.”
The Harvard Lampoon

Dean Koontz
“All these girls swooning over hunky vampires, what they really want is to give away their freedom, to be controlled and told what to do and not have to think -- and never die, of course. It's sick is what it is. I don't want to be a forever-young living corpse.”
