I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks.
My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie.
I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.

Smashwords book reviews by Cherime MacFarlane

  • A Brother's Duty on Jan. 22, 2013

    I really enjoyed this book. It flows along nicely. Neither character did any sudden about faces in order to carry the story. They remained true to who they were, they just grew and evolved. Well done Mr. Sanderson.
  • Running Home on Jan. 27, 2013

    I enjoyed this book. It flowed nicely. It also brought up some "ripped from the headlines" items regarding the problems faced by Christians who have converted from Islam. Good book.
  • 1906 - A Novel on Feb. 23, 2013

    Absolutely one of the best book I have had the pleasure of reading in a while. I certainly will recommend this one. There was a great deal about the history of San Francisco and the way it was laid out was very well done. I enjoyed all the characters. Good job! Thanks for a great story.
  • Iron Dogs and Caesar's Ruby on Feb. 27, 2013

    This is an entertaining read. Interesting premiss. Interesting characters. I enjoyed the book.
  • Bohemian Heart on Feb. 28, 2013

    Excellent book, there aren't enough stars! Drat. Could not put it down.
  • Eye of the Storm on March 12, 2013

    I liked the characters. The plot was ok but all in all I thought it was a good diversion. The writing was tight and what's not to like about a good romance. I also liked that the romantic scenes left a little to my imagination and I have a good one.
  • The Stripling on March 23, 2013

    Great story. Read far longer than I had planned to last night. Thanks for a great read. Only tiny little complaint is the formatting at the beginning where it seems each chapter of the book has a blank page. One could think that the book is empty of content. I just kept on moving pages and finally got to the story. It was great from there.
  • Dearest Enemy on March 25, 2013

    Good story. I enjoyed the characters.
  • Lost Mountain Stallion on March 25, 2013

    Really enjoyable story. One would like to think that there is a place out there where a small wild herd exists.
  • Stealing Back The Moon on March 27, 2013

    Well done. I enjoyed this one immensely. Very good read good plot.
  • Greaser on March 27, 2013

    There are a couple of formatting issues on this one. A little too short.
  • Story of a Texas Marine : The Autobiography of Nick Quintanilla on April 06, 2013

    Interesting memoir. How the author got involved in the construction industry in California was the part that was unexpected and interesting.
  • Forsaken (De Montbrai Saga, Book I ) on April 07, 2013

    Well written kept my attention and I am looking forward to the next two.
  • Tattered Innocence on April 10, 2013

    Excellent read.
  • Hens and Chickens (Book 1 in the Sovereign Series) on April 10, 2013

    I enjoyed this book. It is a sweet story that makes one wish to live in that small town.
  • Indiscreet on April 30, 2013

    Very entertaining, different and well done.
  • Alaskan Nights on April 30, 2013

    A couple of very minor geographical issues, otherwise good read.

    Good read.

    Good book well written.

    Good one with a bunch of twists.
  • Trouble in Paradise on May 10, 2013

    different take and a good read.
  • Tressa on May 12, 2013

    Very good, I stayed up way too late to finish it.
  • The White Aborigine on May 18, 2013

    This is an excellent memoir. This man’s family mirrors others that made it difficult for those not quite the same. A look at life in Australia. Well done.
  • Never Alone on May 22, 2013

    I really enjoyed this one. Danny has a piece of every normal human in him. Good job.
  • Satin Highlands on May 26, 2013

    I enjoyed the book. Characterization good. A few tiny problems with words here and there, not enough to keep me from reading it through.
  • Bar Tales: Stories From A Southern Rural Law Practice on June 03, 2013

    This is one of the funniest things I have read in a very long time. Laughed myself silly. Having been a paralegal in a rather specialized field for over 20 years I did understand some of the 'lingo'. But you do not need to understand legalese to enjoy this one. And hats off on your prison ministry. God bless.
  • Spitfire on June 03, 2013

    Excellent book, great read. Ready for the next one.
  • Frozen Dawn on June 05, 2013

    Not my usual fare. However, I read the whole thing, well written.
  • Controlling The Cats on June 05, 2013

    I enjoyed that one quite a bit. Very tongue in cheek. Made me take a good look at my cats.
  • Tinkers Creek on June 20, 2013

    Well written. I did enjoy it.
  • Tales of a Northern Shepherd on July 02, 2013

    Quite enjoyable. There are a couple of format errors but that did not stop me from enjoying this book.
  • Colton's Folly on July 22, 2013

    Well drawn characters. Enjoyable,
  • Innocent Death on July 22, 2013

    Enjoyable read. Sort of a slice of life in Glasgow. I was familiar with the locale which was one of the reasons I purchased the book. I did like the book. I'm wondering if there was a sequel planned as the ending left that impression.
  • Sweetness on July 22, 2013

    Pretty interesting twist in this one. I liked Spitfire and got this one because I like the first one. Very spicy!
  • Angel, Falling on Aug. 06, 2013

    Good read. I enjoyed this book very much. Well written.
  • Shadowstalker on Aug. 07, 2013

    Amazing story. Great read. Not something I would usually read and am very glad that I did.
  • Rescuing The Rogue - A Regency Romance on Aug. 26, 2013

    Excellent. I quite enjoyed this book.
  • Double Vision: A Quantum Suspense Novel on Aug. 30, 2013

    * Most excellent read. Great book very action packed. I also enjoyed the characters greatly. That's why the 6th star in the corner before the M. I really really liked this book.
  • Winter's End on Oct. 05, 2013

    Good plot, good read I read it all the way through in one sitting as I did not want to put it down. The only flaws were a couple of minor edit things.
  • Touched By Fire on Oct. 06, 2013

    Quite good excellent read. Loved the characters.
  • Lord Scoundrel Dies - A Regency Murder Mystery on Oct. 12, 2013

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Spent the day reading.
  • Stories Untold on Nov. 21, 2013

    A beautiful collection of life experiences told with joy and verve. Much like a box of chocolates, there are bittersweet pieces, melt in your heart bits and mischievous bites you never expected. Enjoy.
  • Dream Noir and Other Tales on June 26, 2015

    Three stories of mayhem and murder in Alaska. Tourists see the fantastic scenery and yet, there is another side. The dark side of Anchorage is revealed in these dark stories. One man needs to provide for someone and will do anything to make it happen. Do not try to rob the dirty old man. A road trip unlike any other you may have read. Transporting drugs where there aren't too many roads leading anywhere can make this haul the road trip from hell.
  • Born From the Ashes on June 20, 2016

    Beautifully illustrated, this is a tale of love and loss. A quick easy read, it will tug at you for some time after putting it down.
  • Bayou Fire on Dec. 31, 2017

    Nice romance set in New Orleans with a twist. Good plot and a happy ending. A nice easy read.
  • Sunshine Came Softly... on Jan. 28, 2020

    A beautiful short story.
  • Moon Under Water on May 08, 2020

    Short and sweet little story. Easy to read with a satisfying ending. Well done.
  • Fair Play or Foul? on Nov. 07, 2020

    Okay, no harm no foul. My last name is MacFarlane so I wanted to read this gem. Short and to the point, it's a nice little slice of horror. Well done.
  • Clochan on Nov. 17, 2021
    (no rating)
    A well-written tale of love and loss in 1700s Ireland. Things have been difficult in Ireland for centuries, and one reason there is such a diaspora. This is the tale of one child who loses everything in a rebellion. The one person he hopes to reconnect with is nothing like she was. I must admit to being turned off by the cover somewhat. But the description was interesting. Glad I ignored it.
  • The Robber Knight on Nov. 18, 2021

    I enjoyed it and am getting the next one. I do want to complain a little about the cliff hanger. It was a huge one.
  • Clochan on Nov. 18, 2021

    A tale of love and loss in 1700s Ireland. Well written and absorbing. The cover did put me off a little but the description sounded excellent. Glad I ignored the cover.
  • Keeping Your Head... on Dec. 29, 2021

    Good read. It took me a few pages to get the picture than it all came together nicely. Short, entertaining story.
