Becky takes frequent flights of fantasy, in real life as well as in her writing. It's said that life is stranger than fiction, but Becky's out to prove it's possible to integrate it both ways. Whether she's racing her Arabian horses through the woods, rapid firing her .45 or gargoyling from local rooftops, Becky finds it hard to stay grounded in the real world. Although she has yet to ride in a space ship (she did get to simulate crashing a 727) or to meet a real vampire (that she's aware of), anachronistic dress, "QaQ poHmey" and pints of brew (yes, it comes in pints) are standard fare on the odd weekend.

Smashwords book reviews by Becky Burkheart

Very good new fantasy is a rare and wonderful find and the only way I can fault this is that I'm now even more anxious to read more of her work. I'd say "I want more", but this story is perfectly suited for the length it is, although I can well see a sequel and prequel fleshing out the details you only get hints of. Ms Fisk has amazing talent to merge her own unique style in keeping with a rich and deep genre and I'm delighted to list myself as one of her readers.
Shafter: A Science Fiction Adventure

Another amazing story by Ms Fisk. I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. It's not just a "science fiction", but a human story with drama and political twists, about seeking acceptance and love and the chance to stand on your own feet. The cultural is well done, very different in many ways from our own, but not so different in others. I loved the relationships, how they grew and developed but above all -- it's simply a good story.

A delightful journey back to classic horror.
In this modern age of so many sub-sub-sub genres and specialties, it was a real treat to pick this up and find it to be a true horror tale in the classic sense. Mr Brunell perfectly captured the contrast of idyllic and terrifying, in both his settings and his portrayal of community and family values.
