About Heidi Belleau

Violetta Vane grew up a drifter and a third culture kid who eventually put down roots in the Southeast US, although her heart lives somewhere along the Pacific coast of Mexico. She's worked in restaurants, strip clubs, academia and the corporate world and studied everything from the philosophy of science to queer theory to medieval Spanish literature. She homeschools her eldest son and has a passion for political activism

Heidi Belleau was born and raised in small town New Brunswick, Canada. She now lives in the rugged oil-patch frontier of Northern BC with her husband, an Irish ex-pat whose long work hours in the trades leave her plenty of quiet time to write. She has a degree in History from Simon Fraser University with a concentration in British and Irish studies; much of her work centred on popular culture, oral folklore, and sexuality, but she was known to perplex her professors with unironic papers on the historical roots of modern romance novel tropes. (Ask her about Highlanders!) When not writing, you might catch her trying to explain British television to her newborn daughter or standing in line at the local coffee shop, waiting on her caramel macchiato.

Review by: Pamela Jenewein on June 16, 2012 :
An absorbing read, as a person cannot look away for one minute without loosing her place. However this very deep, intricate story made it all that more intriguing, addicting. The characters Joseph and Fetch are just as complex as this surreal premise.

Review by: Tammy on June 15, 2012 :
I give this short 3 stars.
This is listed under gay fiction as it contains gay characters there is no sex.
The short is written in diary format.
The dates jump a bit here and there (flashbacks, flash forwards, and flash backs again) to help build the characters histories. It mostly takes place during WW2.
I found this to be an unusual love story, in that it took me a flashes to figure out the characters/emotions/relationship.
I really felt this book needed more, in that it was too short. I would like to see it expanded upon more about the ghost/reaper myth and what his 'purpose' was. How did he get the job/role?
I would have liked to see more of the time line between 1930 and 1944.
But even without this, this short is an enjoyable read.
I recommend this book to those who like romance, historical fiction.
