5-STAR BOOK REVIEW

My Novella:    GRAND THEFT LIFE (Daughter of Darkness, #1)
just got its first review, five of five stars


" In part a roman-a-clef that deals with social issues, Ame is a protagonist with strange abilities who finds herself among a group of human-like creatures who live among the population of Oakland, California. There are some wonderfully poetic passages that discuss economics and the environment, others that contend with the storyline. An oft-cited failing of literary fiction is that "not a lot happens". With Ame's preternatural background and the world-building going on, the author has done well to pack so much into the first novel of a series. It's an urban fantasy where you're as likely to find an ogre beneath a toll bridge as you are a toll booth operator on it."
