She was a great professor, and an even better writer. Her first book lives up to her ability, and I am proud to say that I was able learn from her!
Each character was truely brought to life in these stories. Each one like someone we all could be but don't want to be. I look forward to reading more from this new author.
A kiss laced with arsenic. The evocative grace of her language thrilled me. The unveiling of a major talent.-- The Capital Times, Madison, WI
