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.

They are awaiting the arrival of their Ambassador of Foreign Affairs, Xos Ragothar. Ambassador Ragothar’s niece, Starragaar Rellagaari, stands beside the Motherlord. Starragaar’s twin sisters are not far behind as Motherlord Tolin’s bodyguards. Continue reading
We are here today with TG Ayer who has just released her latest book called DarkWorld.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born in Durban, South Africa, we moved around a lot when I was young so it was hard to make and keep friends- it was good that I loved reading because that was my escape.
I have two daughters, 15 & 18, who are the first to vet my books – they are harder on me than you’d expect lol. Continue reading

Until I thought about it I hadn’t realised that I do have a few ‘writing quirks’. Amazing what you figure out when you are forced to examine your process.
To start off with, I always need a good pen- my favourites is a LAMY Ballpoint – a gift from my dear friend Kim.
