While Mystery, Mayhem & Magic is in its edit and polishing stage we are continuing to learn and grow our writing craft.
After our whirlwind trip overseas I returned to catch up on my reading.
Within four days I’d read two books, the first ‘When the Lyrebird Calls’ by Kim Kane.
I’d put this book on Goodreads before going on holiday and read it in two days on our return. That means it grabbed me from the start and was a real page turner.
After seeing Kim Kane at Somerset Literature Festival earlier this year, I was intrigued to see how her detailed research would help the book evolve. I was delighted to see how the history of pre-Federation Australia wound its way into this time slip story.
Two days later I’d read ‘Dragonkeeper’ by Carole Wilkinson.
This is an amazing book that I thoroughly enjoyed.
A slave girl without a name learns how to look after a dragon and discovers her own inner strength and abilities. Ancient China, Han Dynasty comes alive within these pages.
This is a series I will need to complete, and soon.
