Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

My review of the classic book, North and South, is up over at All About Romance.  This review is somewhat of a triple threat.

IContinue reading “Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell”

Fairy Tale Adaptations

My blog about fairy tale retellings and adaptations is now available over at All About Romance.

A Spirited Evening

  It’s a cool night shortly before Halloween and, in a normal suburban house, a group of people has gathered together in a dimly lit room. They sit in a circle of chairs in a living room, not unlike any other, but they are here for a rather unusual reason. Tonight, these people have comeContinue reading “A Spirited Evening”
