Reader Profile: First and foremost, I am a reader. From the moment I could hold a book, I've been fascinated with the written word. I enjoy almost everything, but lean toward romantic-suspense and magical realism. If you're looking for poor reviews, you won't find them here. The reason...life's too short to read bad books. If a book isn't at least three stars halfway through, I stop reading, and therefore, don't feel as though I have the right to review it. That's my policy! Please don't send me requests, though. If you are one of my cyber friends, I will eventually find you. :)

Author Profile: A writer of modern-day fairy tales, I write stories that overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, a hint of paranormal sometimes, and of course, tra

Buggy Hi Carmen, thanks for the friendvite :) Yeah I really enjoyed Safe Haven, in fact one of the reasons I like Nicholas Sparks so much is because of the tragedy that usually ensues. Not sure what that says about me?

I think it means you're a realist! Most of by books usually start with a tragedy, and though I usually have some form a tragedy in the end, I will always leave you with something to smile about. I books that make me happy and sad, because it's real. Mix that with a little make believe, and I'm all in. So you're not alone, my friend. And that is why Sparks sells so many books, but I'm doing my darndest to catch up to him. Wish me luck! :)

Oh, and sorry it took so long to reply; I just found this section of comments today. Now I must go apologize to people who left comments in the last year. I do see my mailbox though. Have a great day!
