More About the Author

I was the girl who got in trouble for sneaking flashlights and notebooks into my room in case of late night inspirations. My teachers caught me writing down ideas instead of class notes while in school and college.

I was the out of place teenager with ink stained hands and a mind that was always a million miles away. I was and still am the girl who has a plethora of generic responses for when someone asks me what I'm thinking about. Embarking on a long winded explanation of my current character's personal dilemmas doesn't usually seem to be the wise response.

I still am the girl who has to write her first draft with the old fashioned pen and paper. There's something about the feel of the pen gliding across the paper that maintains my inspiration. If I don't have a rough draft in front of me when I sit down at the computer, I freeze up.

I'm a simple girl who grew up in the Midwest. While I love to travel, I dream of the day when my husband and I can move our new family, which includes our dashingly handsome newborn son, out to the country where we can reside in peace.

I like to think of my writing style as consisting mostly of creative nonfiction. While the setting might be apocalyptic or fantastic, there's a piece of me and my own personal story in each work. Every character is somehow based on my own experiences as I've always been told to write what I know.

Hollow Towns by Ann Livi Andrews is a young adult novel with SFF themes, but it’s hard to say with absolute certainty, as I only read a portion provided by the author for review.
The scene setting and action were clearly illustrated and easy to visualise, with each character introduced well, given the short time span afforded to them. The plot was engaging, even though the small section provided didn’t give a complete picture. Particularly engaging was the scene from Madison’s point of view and the use of the spider, Max, in Hannah’s chapter.
Although I enjoyed the different character perspectives, some might feel there were too many different perspectives to easily follow. The fact the excerpt provided was only 56 pdf pages long may be to blame, so I really need to read the whole thing to comment on the appropriateness as a whole.
It would be best to judge the work in its entirety, but there was enough here to grab one’s interest. I, for one, would be very much interested to see where the plot leads.

In a sort of climate change apocalypse, the reader is introduced to several characters who are not, apparently, linked to each other. Yet, all the characters seem to suffer from a kind of amnesia. This element allows the writer to cleverly build her story around memory and uncertain past events.
The reader discovers what is happening at the same as the character, however there is always a missing element. While the vague outline of the narrative builds incredible suspense, it can also prevent a full understanding of the story. One could also reproach to the writer the several repetitions and the incessant questions at the end of paragraphs.
The intrigue is developed in such a way that it leaves you clung to the book, waiting to discover any climatic ending. The dialogues are sharp and well organized; they allow the reader to better understand the characters's feelings. Moreover, the light writing style makes the book a quick read.

'Hollow towns' is a gathering of short stories with the same theme. Strange weather is the common denominator for people's disappearance.

Disclaimer: I'm not a huge fan of short stories. By the time I get into them, they're over. They never actually tell you enough. And while the writing could shine through, the stories being so short makes it hard to get a good idea of the author's style. However, the idea is original and fairly well written, and since these were connected, it gave them a different feel, some kind of continuity.

I wanted to know more about those storms, about the voices, the men in black. I wished the author would write a whole novel about it from beginning to end so we could learn how and why it happened. It would make for an interesting plot. One thing for sure, I won't be looking at the rain (and strange weather) with the same eyes.
