About the Author
Shannon Page was born on Halloween night and spent her early years on a back-to-the-land commune in northern California. A childhood without television gave her a great love of the written word. At seven, she wrote her first book, an illustrated adventure starring her cat Cleo. Sadly, that story is out of print, but her work has appeared in Clarkesworld, Interzone, Fantasy, Black Static, Tor.com, the Proceedings of the 2002 International Oral History Association Congress, and many anthologies, including the Australian Shadows Award-winning Grants Pass, and The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk. Books include Eel River; the collection Eastlick and Other Stories; and Our Lady of the Islands, co-written with the late Jay Lake. Our Lady received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, was named one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2014, and is short-listed for the Endeavour Award. Forthcoming books include The Queen and The Tower, first book in The Nightcraft Quartet, and a sequel to Our Lady. Edited books include the anthology Witches, Stitches & Bitches, from Evil Girlfriend Media, as well as several well-received novels from Per Aspera Press. Shannon is a longtime yoga practitioner, has no tattoos, and is an avid gardener at home with her husband, Mark Ferrari, in Portland, Oregon. Visit her at www.shannonpage.net.

That said, if Page writes anything that is straight fiction, I would definitely give it a try. Not everyone has the proper feel for writing horror or fantasy.
What stood out for me, is how authentically the hippie culture was portrayed. Often, hippies liked to portray themselves as idealistic and more evolved, this book takes a more jaded view, the full spectrum of humanity is present, the good and the bad.
Good plot. Good characters.
I look forward to more from this author.
The story is creative and unique. I never felt like I knew where it was headed, so I never wanted to put the book down. I definitely look forward to more work from the author.
