Most people think this fat lady is pretty nice but I have always told my 7 kids that I practice my meanness exercises every day. Mostly I take risks, don't use recipes, love life, read avariciously and putter in my garden when it is nice outside. I must be grown up because I promised one four year old who asked what I would be when I grew up that I would be a grandma and I am one...but I still feel like always...I even reverted to my hippy roots by growing out my used to be black hair- but that phase has passed again now. As for what I write - when it is fiction I find myself exploring the tension produced when authentic faith is juxtaposed with dysfunctional/abusive marriages...so don't be surprised if you find it difficult to assign to a particular genre. Thanks for noticing, by the way.

Hullo there. I'm still a reader on Authonomy scouting for new authors....
This captures the period well enough. Perhaps you could make the dialogue move less in paragraphs of speech and more in sentences where we can see the facial responses and body language and hear the grunts and sighs. I love the colonial period - your opening reminded me of Johnny Tremain's.
This is so well written - great pacing, ready to sell. Backed with pleasure.
While I can see the images you draw, your writing feels stilted and the flow is choppy to me. I think you have a lot of work to make it so that the first person narrative draws the reader in but there is obvious potential here.
This is very well written - I am concerned about the characters - especially Andrea and like the way you weave the layers of intrigue in at the beginning to hook me, a reader who might just have to read this on a long airplane trip.
I love the visuals and the vocabulary. This is not for the person who wants a quick read on an airplane but rather for someone who wants to savor each element.
