Only a handful of writers have made me feel I needed a tissue, needed to control my laughter and keep a dictionary beside me while reading. One of those is a lady who I have the joy of rereading again as we re-release sixteen of her novels through Gypsy Shadow Publishing. Check out my new Page! It's the first I've created and it has her works listed and linked to her page on our website. She's even put new covers - most of them her own works - on them for this parade of pleasure.
A few single paragraph quotes - from the first chapter in each book - will give you a good glimpse of what I mean:
The Goldcamp Vampire
The Drastic Dragon of Draco, Texas
The Harem of Aman Akbar, or The Djinn Decanted
The Lady in the Loch
The Unicorn Creed: Songs from the Seashell Archives: Volume 2
Bronwyn's Bane: Songs from the Seashell Archives: Volume 3
"What is it, Uncle Binky?" she demanded in a fair imitation of her father's regal roar. "Can't you see I've mortally wounded casualties on my hands? We need healers and medicine now!”
"Yes, my lady," the Chamberlain replied with a tone sober and a face straight from long and difficult practice. "I'll see to it personally, my lady . . ."
"A simple 'general' will do," Bronwyn said graciously, since she was actually very pleased to have someone to talk to. She hopped to her feet and took the Chamberlain's hand in hers, her action very like that of any normal child except that ordinary little girls didn't tower over adult royal retainers. "What news do you bring from behind our lines?"
