There are many fascinating worlds authors have created that I would love to see, but they all hold an element of danger. When I was a girl, I wanted very much to go through the looking glass. Mmm. Since Star Trek has inspired novels, I hope you think it's kosher if I pick being on the USS Enterprise exploring other worlds and alien races. I'd like to be one of the people who they send to the planets, but I don't want to wear a red shirt and die right away.(less)
R. Marquez I don't have a list. I read whatever is available from my favorite writers or any new writers that intrigue me.

It's Coming Along

Don't ask me how I did it, but I completed the preliminary outline for The Last Valentine. I had most of the beginning and ending in my head, and the middle chapters just flowed out of me. I'm very happy about this, but as I make a more detailed outline (lots of research needs to be done), I know I'll find plot holes that might send me whizzing in a different direction, but it 's a start.

I really liked this book. The heroine is very strong, and the new universe that Harris has invented intriguing. It began stronger than it ended, but it was still very good. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

The Wanted by Robert Crais

I love Robert Crais and his characters. Since he only seems to put one book out every two years, I try to read slowly, but I never make it. I finish it in record time.

Great story. Elvis Cole and Joe Pike rule.
