Excerpt: Last Christmas In Paris

I was offered the chance to post an excerpt of Last Christmas in Paris and even though I haven’t read it, yet (I can’t wait!) the excerpt made me want to read more.  Pretty much anything set during WWI is going to get my attention!   Before you read,...

Blog Tour: Haunting The Deep

I enjoyed How to Hang a Witch and its blending of family drama and history.  In Haunting the Deep, I think the same feel was achieved, but this time it was a different ancestor of Samantha’s that was involved.  Instead of witch trials, everything at ...

I was skeptical as to whether or not this book would be a good fit for me, but let me tell you that I really, really enjoyed it!  Tea leads a quiet life with a big family, surrounded by older siblings and a chaotic but fairly loving environment.  Whe...

Ex Libris Audio: The Great Hunt

One of my favorite Child Ballads is The Two Sisters, a story about jealousy that ends in one sister murdering the other and subsequently getting busted by a harp made from her sister’s bones.  (No, really.)  The Great Hunt is very loosely based on th...

Blog Tour: Wonder Woman: Warbringer

I know I date myself by writing this, but my introduction to Wonder Woman was the show starring Linda Carter in the 1980s.  I would lasso my brother hoping to get the truth (it didn’t work) and spin in circles hoping my clothes would change.  Watchin...
