When Mav Skye isn't turning innocent characters into axe murderers, refinishing old furniture, chasing around her spring ducklings, or reading the latest horror novel, she's researching true crime, missing person cases, and grizzly murder scenes. She adores puppies, pirates, skulls, red hots, Tarantino movies and yes, Godzilla. Especially Godzilla.

Hi Jeffrey,
I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you, I hadn't realized this question was here until now. I bought your book years ago and it's been awhile since I've read it. My favorite story was the one with the boy named Bradley and the salamander. I believe it was called, "This Isn't What You think?"

Just like when our physical muscles need a rest after a hard work out, the creative muscle needs a brake…er…break too. I stop all writing and go on a reading spree. I try to pump as many books in as I can. It’s like soul food. After about 3-4 books in, I feel rejuvenated and revved up to write again.
