Living Courageously

I have a confession to make. I have been keeping secrets from y’all. Big secrets. Secret secrets. Some of them are so big and so secret that I can’t even tell you about them yet. (I promise I will soon.) But I can tell you the first one today. About a month ago, I got…

Of Bullfrogs and Snapdragons: Coming Fall 2019

Hedgehogs, O most faithful of readers, make excellent writing companions. I would not admit this to anyone but you, for some of my friends would be terribly jealous if they thought that I was choosing favorites. Belinda Munkindot, who I am sure that you remember from my previous letters, would fly into the most ridiculous…

Miss Honey

Today’s post is not a book review. Well . . . it is, but it’s not. If you take my meaning. You see, I’ve already written a review about Matilda, by Roald Dahl. Quite a long time ago, in fact. And it would be very odd to review the same book twice on the same…

FREE BOOKS: Last Day!

Hello, my friends! Friendly reminder that today is the LAST DAY that my books, Of Mice and Fairies and The Birdwoman, will be FREE on Amazon. Of Mice and Fairies is a charming collection of fairy tales written by a forest witch, in the form of a series of letters to her niece. They spin…

That is definitely a good feeling. Secondly, this blog recently passed its one year anniversary, AND reached 100 followers! YAY!…

In Which Wignilian is Heroic

I must be completely honest with you, dearest of readers, and admit that the old mill down by the pond is not really a part of Bushkyn Hollow. It is, in fact, in a different part of the forest altogether, and one must walk quite ten minutes from one to the other. But the mill…

Night Festival

I do not review books by request on this blog. Ever. It’s just not something that I do. The books I post about are the ones that belong on my shelves, the ones that broke my heart and soothed my soul. These posts are about chronicling my own journey as a reader, highlighting the books…
