CHEL4NOW, April 18, 2007 (view all comments by CHEL4NOW)
One thing that like about her books that you don't have to know the aurthor to understand her,but you can real to her writing in so many ways. To be able to draw other races into yours because the words come alive....made reading Moths and Other Stories not like you are even reading. And meeting her in person was breath taking. For those that have not read any of her work you are missing out. So treat yourself.
