If you are still interested in looking at late 2009 books, my new release, Angela 1: Starting Over, was published in October. It is the first of three novels centered around a group of high schoolers living in coastal Texas. To learn more, just click on my name and follow the link to my website.

I just watched Romeo x Juliet yesterday, or parts of it. Seemed like a neat, if amazingly loose, adaptation.

How was Sherlock Holmes?
