Age of Love Interest in YA Paranormal

I never really focused on the age of the love interest in YA paranormal books. I guess, growing up watching Buffy who was super-awesome and dated hundred-year-old hunks (aka Angel and Spike), I never really cared about the age difference when it comes to paranormal books. So Buffy dated guys six, seven times her age, sometimes more. But these guys […]

Author Interview with Dennis Fishel

Star Wars : The Force Awakens Review

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is probably the most anticipated movie of the year. And yet it didn’t convince me, nor do I feel as if it did justice to the movies it was based upon. Anyway, spoilers ahead so if you haven’t seen the movie, and don’t want it to get spoiled, don’t read on. Nothing in the movie […]
