Cathy has always been a dreamer. In her dreams she is a beautician, business owner, masseuse, physical therapist, social worker, private detective, Ranch owner, veterinarian, florist wedding planner, exotic dancer, even a gay man, vampire, and all sorts of shifters.
In real life she is a retired woman in her fifties though she acts like she is still in her thirties, married living in a unique dome house in a small river town in the Midwest with her Hubbie, her three year old dog Molly that thinks she is human or a cat, and a brood of kitties that hide underneath her house.
She is retired from 19 years of retail sales management specializing in jewelry sales and her two lovely children are grown and flew the nest to achieve their own dreams and leave tier mother to hers.
Now she devotes her time to writing about all the above mentioned things in her dreams adding in plenty of romance and suspense.
In her spare time she likes to play with her many grandchildren, garden, cook, craft, sew, crochet and create things from trash and things she finds interesting like, bottles, rocks, old clothes, etc. Yes she is a huge packrat. She is also a chronic dieter and likes to read on the treadmill. She loves to read and will find any excuse to do so. She also likes to chat on Facebook and make new friends.

Have you ever been so afraid of something that the only way to stay sane was to find an escape, even if the only escape is a dream?
That’s how ten year old Luke deals with his fear of storms. His dreams are vivid and fun and usually consist of dragons and wizards. Then one morning he wakes ups with what he thought was his toy dragon to find Gage is no longer a stuffed toy but a real dragon.

This book continues Libby’s adventures of her life with the war God Ares. In this book Ares and his daughter Harmonia are living with her on her goat farm along with her goats, her cow her cat her dog and her chickens. Now she also has along with Ares and his daughter and sometimes his twin sons, a gay Minotaur that has saved her form Hades once and in this book is joined by the Satyr Pan and Ares chariot of fire and fire breathing warhorses. Libby is plagued by insomnia after putting on the helm of darkness in the last book ( you must read if you haven’t it is hilarious also!) She soon finds out that is the least of her problems when they find out that Hades is trying to find Zeus’ hidden armor and wreak more havoc on the world.
Oh my! This story is filled with action and adventure and is a laugh a minute. The characters are so adorable and well developed and the plot is also delivered with intrigue and wit. . It picks up where the last one left off but it stands alone perfectly. Be warned you will want to go back and read that one too! I can’t wait for the next one to come out!
Recommendations: If you like a fast paced story based about Greek gods, and goats, and snarky goat herders, that will make you roll in the floor with laughter and drool over the love scenes this one is a must read!!

Oh my Gosh this was so much fun to read. I laughed till I cried! I always loved mythology but now I am readdicted! More Gods please!!
Libby is a widowed Goat farmer. She hasn't gotten over her loss of her husband and lost her faith in any God. Until one fell through her roof into her life. Literally. Enter Ares a huge hunk of man that claims to be Ares the Greek God. Libby is sure he is on something or just loony but soon she finds out its true.. Oh my twists and turns and happenings. Like I mentioned before be prepared to laugh. A lot! Plan time to read this since once you start you won’t want to put it down!

This story won my heart. I love the cover also. It’s so well written for such a short story.
Whit Stoddard is a reporter in the time of the Great Depression. He is barely doing enough stories to get by. He meets Peter a man that is just fallen to the Great Depression. Peter changes Whit’s life in so many ways and shows him there is still humanity in the world and maybe even a chance for a man to find love.
This is a very beautiful story. I find I love this era. The way the author describes things so simply but elegantly; I felt as if I were there in the bread lines or there in the hotel with all the homeless. It is also one of those stories with some deeper meaning. You really should read it. It’s free so what do you have to lose?
I highly recommend this if you like depression era stories, reporters, love, hope for life and an all-around good story
