Meet the Author

I live in Ohio with my husband, one dog, and a varying number of cats. My two children are in college.I've always been a bit of a dreamer and my imagination is often in overdrive. Let's just say that I don't have to dig too deep to find my inner child.Adventures are always fun, and I've had a few, but now my knees have ground to a halt, and my feet are rebellious. So my adventures are fewer, and more tame. They often involve a book, either reading or writing one. A good book can make you feel like you've just climbed a snow-clad mountain, or sprinted a desert path under the burning sun, or swum in the deep ocean alongside a whale. It feels like you're the one having the adventure. So if I'm typing away at the computer or if I'm snuggled up with a book and don't look up when you call, it's because I'm busy - off on an adventure. Try again later.For more information visit: blogofauthorlindaash.blogspot.com

    Rose of Par Kluhnd

    As the subtitle implies, this novel is very much like a fairy tale. The Land of Shey, where much of it takes place, is beautiful and populated by a variety of interesting people and magical creatures. As with the best stories of any stripe, "Rose of Par Kluhnd" is a grand adventure. Rose experiences many things, from the sorrows of death to the thrill of first love. She deals with allies, enemies, and turncoats. However, the story goes much deeper than the adventure.

    As with many fairy tales, there are life lessons for the reader to learn. For me the main lesson to take away from "Rose of Par Kluhnd" is the nature of responsibility. Rose was leery of accepting her coach's request to be captain of her soccer team; mainly because she wasn't sure she wanted the responsibility and was mature enough to recognize the commitment this role implied. However, once she reached the Land of Shey, Rose learned that responsibility is sometimes foisted on you whether you feel prepared or not. If you're the only who can do the job, you may not have a choice. This lesson is one anyone could benefit from and is especially apropos for the primary target audience.
