by Cathy McDavid

Posted March 29, 2014

Love it when an author takes a story and has it explode right in front of your eyes on the page. MOST ELIGIBLE SHERIFF has a very scary subplot -- that of being stalked. Cathy McDavid takes the stand that women can empower themselves in many ways but when personal safety Read more...

An avid reader for all my life and reading is one of my passions. I’ve been an independent reviewer for over seven years now and have covered just about every genre from a vast number of publishers and authors. Another perk of reviewing is getting a first glimpse of new and upcoming works from talented authors. As a reviewer I have had the fortune to meet new authors and become reacquainted with some tried and true ones. One of the most rewarding aspects of reviewing is having your work acknowledged by authors and/or publishers. The inclusion of one of my reviews on a book jacket or on an author’s website is a supreme compliment and always appreciated. With the advent and broad adoption of the e-reader the scope of available works to be reviewed has increased exponentially making the job of the reviewer ever more challenging as the selection of works becomes vast beyond belief. My goal is simple – to deliver a fair and honest review. I take this very seriously as I respect my readers and they can depend on my appraisal of fiction as well as various crafts and cooking. My main focus is fiction but occasionally something from another genre catches my eye.
