Read full description of the books:
A good book is like a good friend. Recently, the Sage trilogy became my best friend because I started reading the day of my father's biopsy. After finding out he has stage four lung cancer, I have spent many days reading while he gets treatment.
I've finished reading the series now and can happily recommend it to others.
What I loved about Sage: I absolutely adored the creation story from book two. It's easily my favorite part of all three books because it's so well thought out. All other-world fantasy should have some sort of creation story to give the readers context.
What I liked about Sage: That women have most of the power in that world. The men are well represented, but the it's the women who move the story. The narrative flow of all three books never stops, it's a single unified story told in three equal parts. Especially liked are the four entities of creation, Tortoise, Dragon, Unicorn and Phoenix.
What I didn't like about Sage: It lacked grit. It's difficult to contrast the goodness against the badness if the badness isn't realized. There is a detached quality to the story that kept me from becoming emotionally invested in the characters.
Not everyone wants an emotional connection to the characters and it certainly won't stop me from recommending the Sage trilogy to others. It's a great read from an author who clearly enjoys creating.

Read information about the authorFor as long as I can remember, I've loved telling and being told stories. When, at the age of about six, I was informed that somebody got paid for writing all those books and movies and television shows, I abandoned my previous ambition (beachcomber), and became a writer.
I've worked as a high school teacher, an executive secretary, a soda jerk, a bank clerk, an accountant, and in Red Cross Youth Services. While working for the Red Cross, I met my husband, a widower with three young daughters. We married and had a fourth daughter. Their names are #1 Daughter, #2 Daughter, #3 Daughter and #4 Daughter.
Small town life agrees with me. I like the interconnectedness of everything and everybody. The internet is a little like a small town: I frequently "run into" an old friend in a new venue. I like connecting and reconnecting with people, meeting new friends and keeping in touch with the friends I already have.
My writing reflects this love of network. I try to remember, in my books and stories, that no one exists in total isolation, but in a web of connections to family, friends, colleagues, self at former stages of maturity, perceptions and self-images. Most of my work is fantasy, science fiction and/or mystery, though I write horror, humor, romance, mainstream or anything else that suits the story and character.
I've had stories in anthologies, on-line and print publications, including Oceans of the Mind and Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress anthologies 22 and 23, on coffee cans and the wall of an Indian restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.
Professionally, I'm a member of Southern Indiana Writers and Green River Writers.
