A great read ---

I just finished reading Beyond a Sea of Ice by William Sarabande
It's the first of a series and, although I read it about 10 or 15 years ago, I still found it quite attention-getting and, for the life of me, I couldn't remember the ending - which was quite good!

I have three Oz books from the 40s stashed away somewhere.
But, even better, I went to The Gutenberg Project and either downloaded the pdfs or bookmarked every Oz book there is!!
I didn't know about the follow-ups but will check them out.

I read to learn in an entertaining manner.
Conducting research is where one needs the dry, matter-of-fact approach to an era. But, fiction brings it to life through the author's imagination what what an individual of that time would see and experience.

For instance, I had no idea that the Spanish in the New World got involved with our American Revolution and one of the viceroys w...

But, in the process of getting rid of one browser that caused me a lot of trouble, I switched to a new one and checked out all the urls on my old one. So, here I am. I write in several different genres. I have one novel due for release sometime ...
