Helen Barbara Pattskyn lives with her husband and children (both human and four footed) in a quiet suburb of Detroit, MI. She is working on becoming a full-time writer as well as doing volunteer work and still trying to find time to putter in her garden, watch the stars, and paint.

Helen describes herself as a storyteller, a science fiction geek, and a bookworm; as introverted, but not shy. Her favorite jobs (besides being a writer) have been hawking left-handed mugs at the Georgia and Michigan Renaissance Festivals and painting polyurethane corpses for Gag Studio. She’s also waited tables, cut fabric, and worked as a library assistant. If anyone ever asks, she describes her life as “quiet”—but even she’ll admit that when you condense it in

I haven’t said anything about the tragedy that took place in Orlando last week because I don’t understand.
I don’t understand a world that can produce someone who is filled with so much hate that he thinks the only release is to take an assault rifle into a crowded room and open fire the clear intent of raining down maximum damage—maximum terror—to a room full of strangers who surely have never...

Ever by Gail Carson Levine
"From http://rowijo.void-star.net

The title of this post is my favorite quote from Ever, the new novel by Gail Carson Levine. Y’know, she wrote Ella Enchanted? And then some other books that weren’t as good in my personal opinion? Anyway, this one i..." Read more of this review »

Forging Bonds by Ruby MacIntyre

This book truly did not work for me. I found it too difficult (impossible?) to connect to either the characters of the plot. The writing itself *is* good--but the pacing and plot left a lot to be desired, particularly the end-of-the-book "plot twist" ...more
Forging Bonds by Ruby MacIntyre
"Not for me. I don't believe this author knows anything about D/s relationships. See my comments for more if you are interested."
The Wrong Bird by H.B. Pattskyn
"Straight up, the cover is what caught my eye – my mother loves peacock feathers so I noticed it right off. But it was the blurb that I couldn’t resist. The Wrong Bird is a short story that is exactly that. The tale of a young man, Seth, who finds..." Read more of this review »

This is one that just simply hit on all cylinders for me. A touch of angst, old scars, fear, love....genuine, real, beautiful love.

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of this particular trilogy--or at least the first two thirds (still awaiting the final book: *drums fingers loudly against desk*)

“Resent you? I love you.”
H.B. Pattskyn, Bound: Forget Me Knot

“Powerful feeling, having a man’s nuts in your mouth, isn’t it, boy?” Henry said. “Sometimes when a guy’s got me like you do now, I have to ask myself which one of us is really in charge. Is it me, ’cause you’re kneeling there with your hands behind your back, or is it you, ’cause if you wanted to, you could seriously hurt me?”
H.B. Pattskyn, Bound: Forget Me Knot

“Why are you scared?” “Because I feel like a total freak for wanting this stuff. Only when I’m with you… when I’m with you it’s not scary and I don’t feel like a freak. With you it all feels right.” “Damn.”

“It must be around forty, when you're "over the hill." I don't even know what that means and why it's a bad thing. When I go hiking and I get over the hill, that means I'm past the hard part and there's a snack in my future. That's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.”

Gusto Dave Hi Helen! Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, Publicity Chair for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

This week on the Rock: writer of risqué romances E.C. STACY regales us with a cartoon and a creepy analogy between critique groups and secret societies, and we poke fun at luminary author BERNARD CORWELL. Check out our revealing interview with literary agent REBECCA STRAUSS on August 18th.

For writers, we offer tips and agent/editor interviews. RMFW has several bestselling authors such as NYT Bestseller Jeanne Stein, RITA Award finalist Joanne Kennedy, and Karen Duvall. You have an open invitation to the “The Rock” for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! Let’s follow each others’ blogs!
