    Greetings from the Central Valley of California Ms. C.
    Just completed Evil Genius. Enjoyed it and will therefore read your other books. Tonight I will start The Abused Werewolf.
    Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know your little teaser at the end of Evil Genius got me. Sure enough, I got the periodic table and solved the riddle. In the 50+ years of reading throughout my life, that was a first for me. It was fun. Thank you for that.

    Well hi, there! So happy to hear from you – and I’m so glad you enjoyed ‘Evil Genius’! Just a bit of advice – ‘Abused Werewolf’ comes AFTER ‘The Reformed Vampire Support Group’, so you might be a little lost with ‘Abused’ if you haven’t read the prequel. But I’m hoping that you won’t be – I always try to make them as standalone as possible.

    I’ve been to California a few times, but only got out of L.A. twice. The bit that I saw north of San Francisco, inland a little, was SO much like Australia – right down to the eucalypts!

      Well if you ever make to the Central Valley, there will be a cold beer and a burger waiting for you.
