N.W. Moors lives in Portland, Maine, the land of lobster and pine trees. She grew up in Connecticut and retired north(it's nice along the coast in winter). She's a voracious reader and avid traveler - she loves to visit Great Britain and Ireland. Researching trips meant that she tries to learn as much about the area as possible and listen to great Celtic music. She's also a knitter and hiker/walker with two cats(the cats don't walk).
She truly appreciates you sharing this adventure with her. She will continue to write about magic, love, and the small town of Antrim, Maine. Please leave reviews and like her Facebook page or follow her blog or twitter feed for further updates.

- Dance of Chaos

Fiona MacDougall lives at home with her parents and younger brother, Patrick, and works at a dead-end clerical job. She gets the bright idea to transfer to the computer department to become a programmer, mostly because she thinks taking the test to apply will get her an afternoon off. She manages to pass the test and move into her new department, but it's a nightmare with a new boss and unfriendly co-workers.
Meanwhile, Patrick is constantly getting in trouble (sometimes with Fiona's help), so the homefront is rocky also. Fiona manages to navigate all mostly because she's too oblivious to notice when she gets in trouble.
This was a fun book, a well-written series of anecdotes, fast-paced and easy to read. A few times I felt the humor was too forced, but mostly I enjoyed it very much and will read more books by this author.

Great short story in the horror genre. I did not see the ending coming and it was great! Nice story for free.

Since I'm just a few years older than the author, I was interested in reading this and see how her memories compared to my own. I was very pleased with this book. The writing is terrific and the anecdotes were both familiar and often jogged my own memories of the sixties.
Since the author lived in Canada growing up, it was a new perspective for me. Her father was a university professor and her mother was an activist. This gave the author quite a bit of freedom for a young girl, but that was what those times were about. This is a very enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.

This was a very enjoyable retelling with 'embellishments' of the Robin Hood legend. The story centers on Prince John, a much more likable character in this story than he ever was during his lifetime. He has acquired a deerhound named Pansy who is integral to the story. Richard the Lionheart has just become king and is off to the Crusades leaving John to cope with the denizens of Sherwood Forest.
This is a very funny twisted story. The history is pretty accurate, but the author has managed to bring out different aspects in a very humorous manner.
A very entertaining book for a different view of the Third Crusade and what was going on back in Merrie Olde England.
