I read a lot of books this year. I just haven't finished most of them. According to Goodreads I read ten. There are a few more, since I don't always have time to log on and review. I'm also including one reread and a separate list of top 5 children's books. I forgot a few of my favorite books at...

      I thought I was going to be free to do a ton of other things, like write on Hawk Fae, 34,000, Jaguar Pride, 29,000, and I need to proof In the Dead of the Night...   But as soon as I turned in Hero of a Highland Wolf edits, Jaguar Hunt copyedits (final proofing) came...

All day long, I've done what I could only dream about doing this time last year: I've sat on the couch reading a good book. Last December, I yearned for some good fiction after a few months of reading a bunch of how-to and reference materials. So at the close of the year, I looked over the books...

    Whew. No wonder I wear glasses. I've just taken account of the books I've read this year and the total comes to 36. I know, that doesn't sound like a prodigious number, but I spend 3-4 hours a day writing my own stuff. Not an excuse - it's simply to account for time consumed in the...
