Book Review: ‘Wishes and Sorrows’ by Cindy Lynn Speer

Wishes and Sorrows is a well-written short story fantasy collection that interweaves myth, magic, romance, and fairytale elements. At times, the writing is darker and bordering on horror.

The Murder & Resurrection of Raggedy Ann

I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl.

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time.  I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small.  When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children.  Every week our library has a scheduled…
