The youngest of nine children growing up in a small town in Wisconsin, I spent a lot of time hiding out with my dog to avoid doing chores. I also spent a lot of time hiding out with my dog and letting my imagination run wild.

Fast forward several decades (or more), and I still prefer to hide out with my dogs and let my imagination run wild.

That is frowned upon when you're an adult, but, then again I've never really worried about being frowned upon. Even less so as I age. Plus, I've learned not to turn my back on my muses. It never ends well.

So I write, create in other venues, work with my dogs, cherish my tribe and my family, and try not to spend too much time in my own head.

Though not my usual genre, the book was suggested by a friend. I found The Earth Abides to be an interesting read given the current pandemic and events of the last year and a half. I questioned some of the assumptions made by the author, and at times ...more

Ain't gonna lie... this one took me a while to get into though ultimately I was glad I stuck with it.
I struggled at first with many of the names -- characters, locations, magic system. Many of them are a mouthful and I felt myself wanting to slow dow

Bound in Shadow by K.L. Schwengel
"What a fantastic start to a new series! It is a well-written, fun read with well-developed characters and a unique dark world. The main character Driev comes off as a lazy drunk that does not care about anything or anyone, trying his hardest to stay " Read more of this review »
