Indie Authors Linda MacDonald & Cathryn Grant

I am not really a reviewer so I am stopping short of calling this a book review – and in any case, it concerns five books at least so we’d be here all day. Instead, I’m going to just talk about two indie authors – one American, the other British – both of whom write about relationships in a way that takes the reader right inside the characters, following every introspective argument, uncertainty, dilemma, and impactful resolution. Beyond that, they are chalk and cheese. Cathryn Grant writes suburban noir and introduces me to people with whom I have nothing in … Continue reading Indie Authors Linda MacDonald & Cathryn Grant

In music, I have eclectic tastes. Just check out my iPod where Nine Inch Nails share space with Shania Twain, Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club, Vampire Weekend, and a bunch of one-offs like Mungo Jerry (In the Summertime), Eric Clapton (Autumn Leaves), and Smoke Fairies (Strange Moon Rising).

Well, I just learned my lesson, and via an indie author, at that. Cathryn Grant’s Demise of the Soccer Moms … Continue reading Cathryn Grant’s ‘Demise of the Soccer Moms’
