Editorial Reviews


Luke is a very mysterious main character and I want to find out moreabout him from the first book"...". One thing I liked about the book wasthat you don't really need the first book to understand his behaviourand how he solves a mystery"... "a great plot. That little bit of pastblended in with black magic, Luke's psychic abilities and the mysterythat comes with Dr.Bethany,..". "You tend to suspect everyone in thestory until you get to the end, and there the twisted ending leaves youwanting to go back and read the first book just so you can understandLuke's character better" " Luke is a passionate character that deservesattention...". "'s words were poetic and the scenery wasbeautiful, yet chilling at the same time... " "Even the screechingseagulls had quieted, their feast having been whisked from them in athick black plastic body bag."
"Murder. Some romance. And of course, uncovering thetruth"..."The plot pulled me in... I couldn't wait to finish it"... "if I had todescribe one emotion that was significant from beginning to end, it was fear.Even as a reader, you always fear that something is going to go wrong..."

From the Author

Gallows Ascendingis the second book in the Mystical Stone Quest series. The first book is Desert Chimera and the third is Neuri Shape-Shifter. Gallows Ascending was actually first theplay House of Mercy, which wasinspired by the true story Ruth Blay, the last woman hanged in NH. She washanged ostensibly for infanticide--the murder of her newborn child. But really,she was hanged for having sex out of wedlock. (Of course the other half of thatequation, the gentleman, never stepped forward and to this day has never beenidentified.) Ruth Blay's story was so electrifying, I knew I had to write aboutit. I wrote a contemporary story interwoven with the historical characters. Theplay was presented as part of the Professional Older Women's Play Festival at JosephPapp's Public Theatre in New York City. Later, I adapted the play to ascreenplay, changing the title to Act ofGrace, and adding a male love interest. I won several screenplay awards andthe interest of Canadian Producer Cynde Harmon of  Really Real Films--but interest and reallyreal money are two very different things. Adapting again, I have now createdthe novel Gallows Ascending, onceagain changing the love interest to Luke Stone and incorporating Gallows Ascending into the Stone Questseries.
