Interview with L. G. Rollins

Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself?
I love baking desserts. I homeschool my kids, and I was homeschooled myself. And my favorite show of all time is “I Love Lucy” (I watch it way more than I care to admit).

How long have you been a writer or known that was something you wanted to do?
I’ve wanted to be an author since I was seven. But I’ve been seriously pursuing it for about four years. (more…)

The Treasure of Isian by Serena Clarke a great book for YA

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

The Treasure of Asian is an interesting tale about a servant girl who must do what the prince commands. Elani grows up with the prince and they learn many things together: sword fighting, riding horses, hunting, and such. When the prince takes Elani with him to hunt a treasure, he never imagines how this trip will change their lives forever. They have to battle giants, women warriors, a water witch, and poison plants all to get a special treasure that all want, but only the right person can use.

The story starts a bit slow, yet soon draws you in, and won’t let you go. This is a good young adult novel with all the right things to make it your favorite. The romance is cute and clean.

“The Miracle Mixer” by Theresa Nash a review

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

A readersfavorite.com review.

The Miracle Mixer is a really interesting, refreshing tale. It is well written and interestingly done. It has at least three different situations going on at the same time, but not in an intrusive way. The author did a great job keeping the reader interested in everything going on. I like the way the story is told and the role the character Reeshanna plays in it. She is lovable, naïve and in a great danger. (more…)

Halith by Kirsten Kelley (a readers favorite review)

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

This author of high fantasy writes with warmth and in a way that preteen and teens will find friendly. The descriptions in this book are beautifully written. They paint a vivid picture in the reader’s mind.

The story is that of a sixteen-year-old young woman by the name of Halith. She has grown up partially with her mother, then in a convent with a superior priestess that really cares for her and finally with her uncle, who wants to marry her to a fat merchant.

To the exasperation of her tutors, (more…)

On Love and Animals by Maxwell MacPherson, Jr.

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

This is a refreshing book about nature and the beautiful lessons it teaches us. The author is very knowledgeable about fishing techniques, fly tying, and species procreation. I don’t think that many in our day have the depth of knowledge he has on this subject or about nature itself. He introduces the reader to a world full of olden day mannerisms and life. I enjoyed the book for all of the information passed on through real life stories (more…)
