A Great New Review!

I just found out about a new review of Glitter of Diamonds on The Suspense Zone. I love the last paragraph, because it sums up what my goal in writing the Manziuk and Ryan books is - to mimic, in a good way, and in today's world, the style of my favorite author, Georgette Heyer.

Keeping someone up all night

Is there anything nicer for a writer than being told you're responsible for keeping someone up all night to finish your book? I don't think so. I just found out about a great advance review of Glitter of Diamonds on Armchair Interviews.
