NEW feature!! You can get a personal inscription from me for each of my titles (only available for my novels) by visiting my page within Authorgraph at: http://.
I live with my wonderful husband, our great kids, and our bratty cats in our cabin at the base of the smoky mountains. When not writing, I enjoy gardening, reading, vacationing in exotic places, and visiting family and friends. I have degrees in mathematics education and curriculum design, but with the fallout of that lousy system called common core, I prefer to write more than teach. My goal is to publish four novels every year, and I do enjoy writing short stories, so look for a few of those sprinkled in between the Novels. Note that I will always give my short stories away, whereas my Novels will always have a price tag unless there's a freebie promotion.

Smashwords book reviews by LC Cooper
- Dawn Debris: A Comic Book Without Illustrations
on Oct. 16, 2010
The summary drew me in, but I didn't like this story. Perhaps it isn't in the correct category - I was expecting it to be humorous. It was difficult to follow; had to re-read several paragraphs and still didn't get the intent from most; and the ending seemed hurried and fell flat. The author has a book in one of Smashwords' top-downloads lists. I suggest reading it and leaving this one alone.
- Windy Pudding: A Chuck & Wayne Adventure
on Oct. 16, 2010
Very clever. I liked the POV and the way the story played out. I don't get the character Kevin's contribution to the story. Then, why didn't Chuck & Wayne tell the police who came up with the plan?
- The Rumors Swirling About James Patterson (Story)
on Oct. 25, 2010
Well done! Witty and perfectly sarcastic. Would have liked to read more - wrapped up too quickly, the story seemed to run out of steam at the end. Still, a very entertaining read.
- Madeleine's Life, A Short Story
on Dec. 06, 2010
Such a pathetically sad tale. Makes me want to hug Madeleine and her brother and tell them everything's going to turn out just fine - even though it will never be as good as before. Then, I'll kick the mother in her butt for lashing out at her children.
A sap for happy endings, I needed a ray of hope & sunshine, which I didn't get. Madeleine is so sweet. Well done developing her character. Would have liked to read more about the family's, especially Madeleine's, adjustment over time. I encourage you to develop the backstory leading to her father's death, as well as that of their ongoing adjustments. I think the whole picture would make for a very interesting "coming of age" story.
