Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
LOL, this is funny. When I was about ten years old, some friends came to visit. We sat around for a little while, wondering what we could do to amuse ourselves. Someone mentioned we act out like a TV show and since I was an avid reader of Nancy Drew and Donna Parker, I volunteered to write our "skit". It was probably all of 5 or 6 pages and I titled it Midnight Horror... but we had to end at 8 p.m. (school the next day, you know!) and the amateurish writing was pretty much of a horror too.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, I can't remember the first one I read, but I do recall at being at only maybe 4 or 5 when my mother told the stories of Goldilocks and the three bears. What fun!

Miss Mae's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Miss Mae

  • Angel's Requiem on Oct. 21, 2010

    I want to be right upfront: Cons: Head hopping, telling as opposed to showing, some punctuation flaws. Now for the pros: With this sticking so much to the telling side, and the very nature of the plot itself, I felt like I was reading the style reminiscent of the 1940's or '50's detective/gangster books. Totally unexpected. :) The story is incredibly intricate and you need to stay on your toes to follow it through. You're introduced to lots of characters and their backgrounds and you need to remember all of this as you follow them through the leads and clues. Also, just to make you aware: since the premise deals with warring mob families, there's quite a bit of violence. Still, if anyone watches any of the cop shows on TV, you're confronted with more than is in this book. Because of its nature and realism, the violence must be told. I so much want to give this book a five star rating because Ms. Kindle has penned what is, to me, an original story. How she keeps all the characters connected is amazing. And the answer of why it finally all meshes with the opening chapter of stealing a corpse is like icing on a cake. However, because of the minor flaws of those cons, I must give a 4.5.
  • A Confederate Yankee In Miss Annabelle's Court on Nov. 06, 2010

    I don't read much time travel, so I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Let me just say, the danger was so imminent and I got so concerned for the hero, I sat here with toes curled, wondering if he would wind up with the heroine! Well, I'm not about to give anything away. :) Read this absorbing, tender --yet tense-- love story for yourself. Wonderful descriptions!
  • Dancing With Fate on April 24, 2011

    Beautifully written with highly visual scenes, you'll be transported to a world unlike any other. I urge everyone to read this story and learn the "fate" of a well-known character who you'll never imagine in any other way again!
  • Munch Ado About Nothing on Aug. 14, 2011

    What an incredible tale! Such originality and creativity! I laughed and chuckled all the way through this as I munched on my corn flakes....er, hey, there's only half a box! Who's been eating my cereal????
  • Dangerous Sanctuary on July 17, 2019

    What good fun! This is a clean book, no sex or bad language so it's family-friendly. Wanted to get that stated right out of the gate. I say it's "fun", though it certainly wasn't fun for poor William who was murdered at Pastor Christine's church. Trying to find who is the killer, the reader is introduced to some zany congregants - which, ya know, we can all kinda recognize. LOL For starters, there's Mrs. Jewell. Well, let me back up a bit. See, Ms. Christine becomes the guardian of not only a lonely cat, but also of a kangaroo and a pig. And, Mrs. Jewell - her encounter with Abraham (the pig), and his friendly snorting "hello, let's get acquainted, ma'am" does not go over well. No, Mrs. Jewell is not a jewel when it comes to animals who definitely want to live in your lap instead of a barnyard. And then there's Lacey, Christine's friend. These two ladies are a dynamite duo - for trying to do detective work when they really ought to stay home and scratch Abraham's ears. Just all in all, a delightful read. At the end, it's a surprise to discover the murderer's identity, plus Christine finds Cole, the REAL detective (who is definitely not an amateur), not only loves all these delightful animals, but becomes the love meant solely for her. I wanted to give 4 1/2 stars. Fun, good read! Thanks, Ms. Rose.
