TCL’s Countdown Questions #13: Author Crystal King.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Crystal King. I'm not sure when my love for culinary fiction began.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #10: Author Kate Quinn.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Kate Quinn. Before I read "The Alice Network" and "The Huntress" I had heard of Kate Quinn, but never read any of her books.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #9: Author Mary Glickman.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week, featuring author Mary Glickman. I discovered Mary Glickman's historical fiction work via the wonderful NetGally.
