  • Giving It Away on June 06, 2011

    Loved, loved, loved everything about it. Some may consider the events described in the story unrealistic. But I hope more will be captivated by the concept and make it more of a reality.
  • The Celtic Tree Zodiac on Nov. 16, 2011

    This is far more fascinating than the silly daily tarot and horoscope posts floating all over the social networks these days, not to mention endlessly more intelligent. Each chapter is carefully thought out, with history, geography, climate and soil information interwoven with legend, lore and subtle humor. Wonderful read and an excellent New Year's gift.
