My New Favorite Hero

My New Favorite Hero

I have a new favorite hero (sort of). If you’ve followed me on NAF for any length of time, you will know that my ultimate hero is Gilbert Blythe from the Anne of Green Gables series. That has not changed, at all. You just cannot top the handsome, intelligent, earnest, and hard-working Gilbert. He missed […]

Review of Kat Heckenbach’s Relent

Review of Kat Heckenbach’s Relent

NAF alumna, Kat Heckenbach has a new book out, Relent. I fell in love with Finding Angel and the whole Toch Island Chronicles series, so I snapped up a copy of Relent the second she posted a link on Facebook. I then abandoned a library checkout to read it. And will admit to staying up […]

For the Second Time

For the Second Time

For the second time in my life, a book has brought me to tears. I don’t cry easily. The only other time this happened, George Bush (41) was President and the Simpsons was in its first season. I was sixteen (or maybe seventeen) in third year French class. As the only third year student int the […]

Mystical and Magical

Mystical and Magical

My question for this week: What is your favorite mystical/magical/supernatural race or animal? These can be from movies or books, specific or general. I’m going to be all girlie and say that my favorite mystical animal is the unicorn. I was obsessed with unicorns as a child–everything in my bedroom had to do with unicorns. […]

Investing in Lightning Rods Pt 1

Investing in Lightning Rods Pt 1

My books aren’t about conversion. Far from it. I’ve never had readers mark my stuff as “preachy”. However, there is certainly religion. I have what I would call “true believers” in my fantasy series. They believe in the true God I have created for their world. I even have true prophets who do miracles in […]
