My name is Carol Marrs Phipps and I am a teacher turned author. I was born in Missouri, grew up mostly in Illinois and currently reside in Illinois. My book, Elf Killers, which I wrote with my co-author and fantastic husband, Tom Phipps, was released by Hellfire Publishing on July 15. It is available as both an ebook and paperback and is now currently Indie Publishedby Tom and me. We now also have the first four books in our Epic Fantasy series Heart of the Staff available in eBook and paperback formats available to purchase.
Tom and I spent the lion's-share of our teaching careers in the Southwest U.S. (Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada) on different Native American Reservations. I believe we learned as much from our students as they did from us and a large number of them became the first dedicated fans of our stories. We are currently full-time writers.
Not long after Tom and I married, I discovered to my joy, that he, too, loved to write. We have been writing together ever since. We are currently working on the 5th book in our epic fantasy series, Heart of the Staff, and have already completed the first four books. We expect to complete the saga with another one or two books. The first four books of this series are: Good Sister, Bad Sister, The Collector Witch, Stone Heart and The Burgeoning. We hope to publish the 5th book sometime in January 2013.

Good Sister, Bad Sister by Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps is a very good fantasy tale of adventure and intrigue. It was full of plot twist and excitement which kept me glued to the story.
The authors did a great job of weaving a tale full of magic, elves, wizards and even a few dragons. The storyline was both realistic and believable. There were a few editing issues but these failed to distract from the overall readability and otherwise great story.
I like the way Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps developed the characters. Both ours heroes and the villains in the story were believable and easy to identify with. I always like when an author gives enough background information to make the characters seem like real people.
I really enjoyed reading Good Sister, Bad Sister by Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps. I recommend this book to all readers.
This is the first book of The Heart of the Staff series and I look forward to reading more.
