    Karen, I so appreciated your gift of your writings delivered to me by Kathy — I have been reading for as long as I can remember and I am 85 — I even have one of the original “Hans Brinker & the Silver Skates” that I received as a child — I first learned to read at age 4 – 2 older brilliant sisters taught me — they were in 3rd & 4th grades in school. I have a library of probably 1000 — everything from fiction, non-fiction, bios, historical, w/well done research (Colleen McCullough & James Whyte), science fiction is an exception -maybe Michael Crichton. I never have limited myself. I read “Fledgling Witch” on Sunday and loved it – yes, I do believe in witches, I guess because I have maternal ancestors who came from British Isles & settled here in the late 1600’s (my maternal grandmother had the inherited “instincts”). I did not retire from real estate till 2015 – 40 yrs in New Orleans.
    Once again, thank you for sharing your talents with me. Look forward to collecting your other writings through Amazon – Shirley K.

    Shirley,
    Thank you so much for your comment–I’m so glad you’re enjoying the books! I also am a voracious reader of just about any genre. Although my books are classified fantasy, I include elements of romance, family saga, horror, gothic, adventure, etc., because I love to read a wide variety of stories.
