If you were mine, I would try to make the world the kind of place it was when you were in it."

"Such a wonderfully written and detailed fantasy with some romantic overtones.  Well described imagery that you can visualize in your minds eye Farwin wood and all of its characters!"

"...wondrous and magical...enchanting and entertaining... Books like this one are the reason I read."

"More so than most fantasy reads, Weeping Books holds the rare ability to reach widely outside of its genre...a draw from page one."                                                                                                                                                                              - Midwest Book Reviews

"I have only three words for this book. ‘JUST LOVED IT’. Of all the books I read in 2018, this is the first book that stood up to my expectation from the very beginning till the end. It was a wonderful read." 

                                                                                                                                                                                         — Snapshot




"Books keep and reciprocate our secrets, dreams, regrets, and hopes better than any friend in the world."

"This book was magical and a delightful depature from the everyday. I think this would appeal greatly to fans of The Princess Bride, Harry Potter and even the Outlander series. There are elements of the Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy and Women's Fiction genres that anchor this fast paced modern fairy tale. You'll fall in love with the characters and want the story to continue to find out more about Salem, Farwin Wood and all the mysteries behind the curse of Agatha Blinney."
