 Any fun facts about you that we do not know?

I … went backpacking when I was seven months pregnant. We both survived!

And … I was born on my mother’s birthday. She missed being born on HER mother’s birthday by two days.

I spent one fun-filled summer driving a hay-mower and catching hay-bales. One summer was enough for me!

 List your top ten memorable books.

 (In no particular order, because it depends on the day and the mood …)

Book Spotlight: As the Crow Flies by Robin Lythgoe

As the Crow Flies. Robin Lythgoe
This is the review I did a few weeks ago on AS THE CROW FLIES. I feel this is a good enough time to re-post it.
Synopsis:
For a thief, getting caught is never a good thing. Getting caught by a wizard is even worse.

‘One more job’ meant that Crow, a notorious thief, could retire with Tarsha, the woman of his dreams, but ‘one more job’ may just mean his life.

When he sets out to abscond with that last brilliant treasure and seek a life of ease and pleasure with the jewel of his heart, Crow seriously underestimates his mark, the Baron Duzayan. Under threat of death by poison, Crow is coerced into stealing an improbable, mythical prize. To satisfy the wizard’s greed and save the life of his lady love, he must join forces with Tanris, the one man he has spent his entire career avoiding.

But what’s a man to do when stealing that fabled prize could level an empire and seal his fate?

From a dungeon black as night, to the top of a mountain peak shrouded in legend, a man’s got to do what he must.

Until, of course, he can think of a better plan…

Tell us a little about yourself for the readers.

I was born in Maryland, but spent several years in Oregon and did a short stint in upstate New York before moving to Utah. I married an artist, and together we have four wonderful children. Reading and writing have always been a part of my life, and I am particularly drawn to fantasy. Before I managed the art of the pen I dictated my first fiction—a tale about a rabbit—to a scribe (my sister). My mother often headed up expeditions to the library, from which the entire party invariably returned laden with a stack of books guaranteed to make the arms longer. I read everything voraciously, and when I finished my stack, I’d start on my mother’s… and then my sisters’. Today I write tales about wizards and magic, fantastical places and extraordinary journeys.
