****.

This is a fine book of humorous short stories. At the end of each story, I had a smile, a chuckle, or a good laugh. I highly recommend it as a good read.

This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
