The Secret of the Haunted Mirror (Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators, #21)The Secret of the Haunted Mirror by M.V. Carey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Still as much fun as it was when I was a kid. Anyone who wants to find a good mystery series for kids, skip the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew and get the Three Investigators. It’ll also be a fun introduction to a time before cell phones and the internet. 😀

I reread this as part of my 2015 Reading Challenge (category – book from my childhood).

Write Your Novel From the Middle: A New Approach for Plotters, Pantsers and Everyone in BetweenWrite Your Novel From the Middle: A New Approach for Plotters, Pantsers and Everyone in Between by James Scott Bell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It may be a short book, at just under 80 pages, but it doesn’t need more. He gives helpful information without padding the book with useless tidbits. The examples are clear and concise. I especially love the “suspension bridge” analogy for creating a solid, readable story. It’s a valuable tool I will refer back to on a regular basis to improve my writing skills.

Realm of Musie (my muse)

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
