Praise for THINGS WE CAN’T UNTIE
Amazon Top Reviewer (Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2008)
Crisp, well crafted, and mature. First the language comes alive, then the characters and the plot - always a telltale sign of elite writing. Because, there is art here, the reader gets to first live inside the language: then become engaged in the narrative. Both are cozy places to live in this well-told story. Unhurried conceptual space is thus provided for the reader's mind to roam around in. Pace becomes an independent variable. Indeed, there is no need to worry about any structural elements here at all, for the narrative is in the deft hands of a craftsman. The descriptions are exacting; the feel is high quality. This writer can make any story interesting.

While "Things We Can't Untie" is billed as general fiction, there's a strong feeling of suspense in the writing. Reading it reminds me of my first reactions while devouring Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca."
Wendy K. Harris (Author of the Undercliff Novels)
A moving story, beautifully told.
