It's not worn because it's so old, but rather because I loved it so much that I read it all the time. I related to the characters because they seemed to understand my own problems and I found that encouraging. If someone finds Hidden Pearls- or any of my books- encouraging in that way through life's physical and spiritual problems, then I think that's the highest thing I can aspire to.(less)
Hayden Wand Yes! I'm actually in the process of formatting the book for kindle, and it should be available within the week!

A couple weeks ago, Christine Eyre at Overflowing Mind & Pen tagged me! I’m a bit of a slowpoke, so I’m only now getting around to filling it out. I’ve been incredibly busy this week so I didn’t tag anyone myself, for which I hope you’ll all forgive me.

What’s something simple and mundane that you get excited about? Fire and thunderstorms. I really like any excuse to light candles. Also– wi...

Originally, Fawkes was not a book I thought I would be interested in reading. Though historical fantasy sounds good to me in theory, it's always been hard for me to get past the meddling in history that the genre requires. However, in more recent yea ...more

I haven't been reading comics for very long, but I think this was definitely one of my favorites I've read so far. It wasn't without its issues (it started to drag by the 3/4 point, and did it really have to end on *that* note?) but overall, it was v ...more

I didn't have high expectations for this...at all. Especially judging by some of the reviews on here. But I actually really enjoyed it?

Is it unrealistic? Yes (but then...does lack of realism ever truly bother me when it comes to superheroes? no)

More of Hayden's books…
“Do you think God truly meant for us to keep Him locked in the church? Is He our Sunday pocket watch we only pull out for weddings and funerals and church services? He wishes for us to think about Him wherever we are. And a voice singing His praises at a ball is far less irreverent than a stone-cold heart sitting in a pew on Sunday morning.”
Hayden Wand, Hidden Pearls

“She hated colds. There was nothing romantic about them. Fainting spells were dramatic, life-threatening illnesses were interesting, and a handsome prince could always rescue you in the case of a twisted ankle, but all colds produced were puffy eyes and a red nose.”
Hayden Wand, Hidden Pearls

“You’re dead,” Amyot said, bearing down upon Benedict.

Benedict flashed an exhausted grin. “I don’t think Death likes me,” he said breathlessly. “We keep running in to each other before deciding to go our separate ways.”
Hayden Wand, Once: Six Historically Inspired Fairytales
