Sherwood Smith

I can't get enough of this great author. I was tickled to discover a short story called "Beauty" recently in the fantasy anthology Firebirds. This sweet little tale picks up some twenty years down the road from Court Duel. Ms. Smith also has a new novel forthcoming soon called "Inda" and her website has six chapters of a proto story involving another character from the Court/Crown Duel series!


Also on her website are reviews of what she has been reading, reccomendations and publishing guides for hopeful writers and links to other nifty websites as well. I was amazed to find that this woman whom I so admire, who's books I re-read at least once a year, is still working as a fulltime teacher. Kudo's to you, Sherwood!

Fu'd for Thought

For any local followers of my sporadic blogging, I am pleased to announced that the restaurant about which I raved earlier in the summer is opening here in town. Mama Fu's that delightful supplier of asian cuisene is "now hiring" near Brookwood Mall. I plan to drag all of my friends there within their first week or so of business. Mmmmm-good.
