My first choice would probably be Xanth - the magic real of Piers Anthony where methophors and figurative expressions are literal and real.

Second would be Narnia. I wouldn't enjoy the battle for the throne, but talking animals are pretty cool.

One place I'd definitely stay away from is Westeros/Game of Thrones - I'd probably end up dead within a week!(less)

Pulpwood Queens Girlfriend Weekend 2021

Okay, so… yeah, it’s a mouthful. Still, I am super excited to be part of 2021 International Pulpwood Queens and Timber Guys Virtual Online Zoomathon Book Club Convention (that we call the Girlfriend Weekend Slumber Party). Last year, I went to the live event in Jefferson, TX and had an absolutely amazing time. While there won’t be an Author Serve Dinner or Big Hair Ball this year, I still look for

It’s a classic for a reason. As good as the movie is, I found that I enjoyed the audible even more. The story is captivating and creative, even some fifty years later. The writing is clean and compelling. We get just the story, without clunky adjecti ...more
