Steven’s book reviews

A good book, but you have to read into the symbols to get it. For example, the cucumber vine shows the death of Zeena, cucumbers make pickles, the cat (which symbolized Zeena) broke the pickle dish, and cats usually chase mice, which symbolize Mattie.

Claire Duffy - Snarky Protagonists, Dark Facts Blended With Fiction, and Suspenseful Crime-solving
FEATURED AUTHOR - Claire Duffy was a screenwriter for over a decade until she caught herself cycling past a production company and giving it the finger. She decided she didn't like the person the film industry was turning her into. Duffy quit, took a temporary job at a daycare in Stockholm, and wrote her first novel while her class of one-year-olds took their afternoon nap. Through blogging that story in daily chapters, she discovered indie publishing and never looked back.
