The history that was covered was both fun and informative. I ...more

Review of THE BLACK ALABASTER BOX just in from Kirkus Reviews.
"A well-crafted mix of fact and fantasy filled with surprises and grounded in history and real-world dilemmas." View it on line:

My brothers and I loved exploring along the creek banks on the farm in Western Oklahoma where we grew up. There were always books to read, too--wonderful books. Maybe
