“I am re-reading an old Patricia Cornwell novel, Predator, and I am in the process of reading Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining, as I have always been a fan of Stephen King’s ability to build suspense. Finally, for a bit of historical spunk, I just started Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl — so much historical, scandalous entertainment! The two female protagonists are strong, driven and wonderful, just like Dr. Cat Powers in The Burning Man.”
