Cindy Horne told me that if I ever wrote a book based on her, the opening paragraph should say, 'You would never believe that the face of evil could also be one of beauty, but history has often taught us differently, beginning with Lucifer. Much like Satan himself, the Mistress was beautiful, but by the time it came for her to pay for her crimes, she was just as ugly as th ...more
