She draws ideas from the world around her, her studies into ancient mythologies, and her readings of classic folklore.

Now, she writes full-time and works full-time in a hospital lab, (for the benefits) tries to keep house, and is a workaholic with a passion for travel, jewelry making, white-water kayaking, and writing.

Forked Tongues - Rachel Caine - I believe this is Caine's third story starring resurrection witch, Holly, and Andy, a resurrected witch from Old West times kept alive by their love. I really like this pair but I brought their history with me from the previous stories, so I really enjoyed seeing them work together to deal with a boot wearing nemesis.
Stolen Goods - Shannon K Butcher - not connected to her Sentinel Wars, A thief with magical boots and an artisan mage who coerces her help to try to steal a magical artifact being used by unearthly villains they both have reason to hate. I enjoyed this story and I wouldn't mind seeing more of the pair.
The Girl With No Name - Chris Marie Green - I think it might tie into one of Green's series but I haven't read anything by her before. The hook for this was interesting but as a whole the story was more on the side of ok.
The Devil's Left Boot - Faith Hunter - a Jane Yellowrock connected story but starring the sisters of Jane's witch friend Molly - The sisters are hired to find the missing mother of their high school 'mean girl' nemesis. I liked this, although there is just a brief cameo for Jane.
High Stakes - Cloe Neill - Chicago Vampires story with Luc and Lindsey in the spotlight. This was pretty short, I liked that it gives a bit of Lindsey's history, but I was expecting a bit more of them together though.
Lucienne Diver - The Parlor - this is apparently hooked into Diver's Olympian series which I haven't read. I liked the mythic tie-in.
Red Isn't Really My Color - Christina Henry - from her Black Wings series, I only read the first book (which hadn't grabbed me) but this had enough promise to make me consider checking out the second book - the gargoyle is kind of cute.
Snakeskin - Rob Thurman - a Trickster prequel, I liked this story but it wasn't what I expected - I had heard that it was supposed to introduce the side characters (I forget the two guys names right now) but they are incidental - the focus is Trixa's case.
Ruby Red - Kalayna Price - an Alex Craft story but not starring Alex - she's just mentioned at the end. I liked the story and I am hoping there will be more Alex someday soon.
This book also did an excellent job of sticking to the theme of shoes. The Chicagoland Vampire one only mentioned shoes tangentially, but they were definitely present. The Jane Yellowrock was hysterical with the shoe-collecting vampire. It was interesting to see how various authors incorporated the theme.
There are so many awesome authors in this book. Well, you know. Check it out! I loved Christina Henry's story Red is not My Color. The characters are so cool, I need to go find her novels. I love urban fantasy, so this collection covered it. The theme to each story tied in with shoes of some sort. What gal, or open-minded guy, doesn't adore that?
If the Surgeon General recommended reading, they would make a special label for these stories: a book a day keeps the doctor away.
Again, books save lives. Don't die of boredom, read!
The stories are very short, but they are all well written and include great characters. As I neared the end of each story I found myself wishing for more.
I loved reading Chloe Neill's short about two of my favorite characters in the Chicagoland series, Luc and Lindsey. It was fun seeing Lindsey's "flapper" side.
It was a great collection of stories. I highly recommend it, for anyone who loves paranormal romances. and shoes or boots. They seem to show up in each of the stories. It was fun.
There truly wasn't a weak story. I think my favorites were the ones that used the theme (boots) as an integral part of the story instead of a prop. I can't wait to read more from these authors!
