November 2021 Reading Round-Up

As I’m now hard at work on my new novel as well as my other work, I’ll be posting less often than usual for a while but hopefully the quality of the books I’m recommending today makes up for that.  (Think you can captivate my audience?  See the postscript* if you’d like to pitch for … Continue reading

February 2021 – Reading Round-up
