It's ironic, my husband never wanted any of the animals that we obtained over the years, but they all end up to be his. More loyal to him than to anyone else, even MY new puppy seems to gravitate to the man.
I love that you wrote a book for children. If I'm lucky enought to win, I would of course read this book which looks very interesting, then donate it to the school library where I work. by the way Lorelei's best friend is Jen.
My favorite book as a child was Grimm's Fair Tales. This was before they were edited with light endings. These were dark fairy tales - and written for school age children. The match girl danced til her feet were bloody, the stepsister of Cinderella cut off their toes to fit in the slipper! etc.
I love to read so much. Books coming up for me to read are Jeanine Frost (at Grave's End) The two new Carrie Vaughn books when they are released, anything by Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, Vicki Pettersson and Christopher Moore. There's lots more, too much to list here. All Time Favorite though, anything by Terry Pratchett, especially his Discworld series. Happy new Year!
I love reading also. I've been reading since I was four years old. I remember reading huge chapter books when I was in grade school, and actually read James Michener's Hawaii when I was 11 years old. funny thing is, I burned myself out on huge 12oo page books, and since I've been in my forties I've been reading lots of paranormal, and urban fantasy. I've read both your previous books, enjoyed them a lot. I just (today) bought your latest with a X-mas giftcard.
