Sidney Carton is almost the only case in which Dickens has drawn a hero on the true heroic scale, and his famous act of self-sacrifice is unmatched in fiction. The book must be ranked very high among the great tragedies in literature.
Patti Larsen is one of those authors who listens to her characters and let them tell their stories through her pen. Sydlynn Hayles came to her one night, urging her to write Family Magic - Larsen had no idea that Syd would still be with her twenty books later. As our Author of the Day, Larsen reveals her secret skills, talks about the importance of family and chats about her work schedule.
