"I WOULD RATHER CHEW ON BARBED WIRE THAN LISTEN TO YOU"
So read the legend on the T shirt of the 15 year old kid sprawled in the front row of the San Diego Municipal Library's Auditorium. I'd been invited to read from THE ENCHANTED RIDDLE, the critically acclaimed first book in my magical realism SCARLET STOCKINGS TRILOGY. The central character is an untrusting 13 year old orphan girl in London in the 1920's setting off on a magical quest that changes her heart and her life.
I needed a bathroom!
But I was underestimating the power of Dangerous Magic. Riveting Mystery. Thrilling Adventure. Fabulous, quirky characters.
Aren't books the greatest!
At the end this kid was the first one to clamor for more.
