Book Review: To Eris – Human


To Eris- Human (Payton Chronicles Book 1)

by Ann Snizek

Published by Snow Flower Publishing



Eris Payton has moved around every 6 months with ‘her mother’ since her father left them at the age of 8. She has never felt in place anywhere. She was never able to make any friends. But then she meets Nelson, who closely resembles the missing brother of Ashley, a girl who lives in the same apartment complex as she does.


The story flows really well. Ann makes it hard for you to even want to put down the book. I loved how you get to feel as though you are joining Eris on her journey. Ann makes you feel as though Eris is one of her friends that she introducing you to and not just a character in the book. Nelson, the one whom Eris meets, seems to be more than what he shows but gives to Eris nothing more than who is he is while he struggles with the personal journey of looing like Ashley’s missing brother, Matt.


Hmmm. It is hard for me to find any faults in this story. I didn’t find, like in most books, any places where the story dragged. Ann is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and, also, a friend. I will be reviewing her other works on this website as well.

Interview with Eileen Schuh Pt 1

This is the first part of the interview with Eileen Schuh. Part two will be on Friday.


Eileen SchuhTell us a little about yourself for the readers.

I wanted to write novels since I learned to read back before I started school. It took me half a century of living before that dream came true. At an age where most people have accomplished their dreams and are plotting retirement, I’m just gearing up for the career of my dreams. I’m very proud to now have six books to my credit, two adult sci-fis and three in my gritty teen fiction series, plus a school edition of my debut novel,“The Traz”.

What is (your book) about?

My most recent release is Dispassionate Lies, a near-future novella for adults that is set in the year 2035. The world is recovering from the economic chaos caused by criminals destroying the World Wide Web. The young woman tasked with restoring a tamper-proof internet is seeking the truth behind the affliction faced by her generation of females, born sterile and without libido. That truth may have been forever lost in the cyberspace crash. Continue reading
