The story is quick and sharp and deep; moving swiftly to its climax, unhampered by any waste pages of descriptions or useless talk of characters. Its blend of weird mystery and forthright elements is singularly effective.
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.
