The Wife – Review

"In an instant, I became the woman they assumed I'd been all along: the wife who lied to protect her husband." The Wife asks us: how far should a wife go to protect those she loves? A question we all think we know the answer to. A question we all think we can answer ourselves. [...]

Renegades – Review

"We were all villains in the beginning." Renegades, though made to feel as if ripped from the pages of comics, is actually far from the typical comic-book style story.

The Hazelwood – Review

"My mother was raised on fairy tales, but I was raised on highways." The Hazel Wood is a remarkable creative blend of urban fantasy and twisted fairy tales with a touch of mystery added for flavor.
