I’ve been interviewed by a local newspaper. Made it to the front page and all! The interview is in Norwegian, if you are suchwise inclined you can read it here. No shocker: we mostly talked about writing and shooting.
In the world of the outlaw known as Crazy Cat, it’ s Lee’s birthday today! Huzzah! Had she been alive (not that I’m saying that she ain’t!) she would have been 167 years old. She would no doubt have celebrated with drinking whiskey and shooting guns. Both fine activities I fully endorse, although not necessarily combined.
I’ve gotten a few very nice reviews from winners of my Goodreads’ giveaway.
Here’s an excerpt from what Lynda has to say about Embers at Dawn: “The first paragraph grabbed my attention quickly and by the end of the first chapter the lead female character’s qualities became known. Lee was a multi-faceted woman surrounded with softness and harshness giving her great depth and an uncommon attraction. The author created a strong commanding character unlike any female character I have ever read…my curiosity was piqued to learn more about her. Not a perfect heroine but heroine-like in many ways – very interesting character development.” Her review of my novel is the review I dreamed of receiving, but wouldn’t dare to hope for. Read the full review here.
Duskofdoubt writes: “The main female character, Lee, is strong and spunky, and so amazingly likeable. Don’t expect the run-of-the-mill damsel-in-distress you’d so commonly find in similar stories, because Lee wields knives, holsters guns, and uh twists the testicles of her enemies (like I said, spunky!), and it’s most certainly refreshing to see such a strong female character once in every while.” She sums up her review with: “Overall, a pretty darn good book!” Read the full review here.
I’d like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU! to those first few of you who have taken the time to read my debut novel and given it a rating or review. I don’t mean to sound greedy, but the fact of the matter is that Embers at Dawn needs more ratings and reviews to get noticed. I would be extremely grateful for any and all feedback on both Goodreads and Amazon.

While you’re waiting; here’s the blurb for Embers at Dawn.
Lee ain’t no goddamned lady. She has done gotten herself unbaptized, unmarried and unlawful. She is the outlaw known as Crazy Cat.
One cat is buried, another is put in a hatbox, then sent to the town marshal along with the head of his deputy.
Lee knows what needs to be done. She needs more men with guns, but where can she find them? And who can she trust amongst those already in her gang? A bloody battle ensues between corrupt lawmen and outlaws.
Embers at Dawn is the story of one woman’s struggle to find freedom in a world that would rather see her in a corset or behind bars; one being as bad as the other, according to her.
It’s a story of rats and sons of bitches, eccentric saviors and a ramshackle gang led by the outlaw known as Crazy Cat.
