Wickedly clever wordplay is one of this author's most engaging characteristics. This was a fun read for lovers of the sonnet - and poetry aficionados everywhere.

Libby Weber was raised in a log cabin in rural Illinois, and later earned a degree in theatre, four varsity letters in fencing, and a spectacularly rude nickname from her fellow trombonists in the Northwestern University Marching Band. She followed her heart to San Diego, CA, where she lives with her husband and dog.

In addition to writing fiction and verse, she sings with the San Diego
