About Anna Erishkigal

Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.'
.
Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge.
.
At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.

Review by: Dale Amidei on March 6, 2016 :
In 'The Watchmaker,' Anna Erishkigal weaves a poignant short read around a theme from Norse mythology. Time is a gift, and sometimes, a last chance. A young woman named Marae uses both well here, but you should discover the details for yourself. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Review by: Kevin A. Lyons on March 8, 2015 :
I love time travel stories -- especially stories that try to cheat fate or flirt with paradox problems. This storyline is very original, the characters are believable and well-developed, and the "rules" for time travel are clear and logical.

There is a romance aspect that was well handled and plays a critical part in the storyline.

I believe the city of Lowell qualifies as a character in this story. If you don't know Lowell don't worry -- it's well described. If you do know Lowell, that's a bonus.

And, finally, this ebook is beautifully formatted!

I recommend it!
