Get Your Voice—and Words—Out There

Getting your voice out there. You may not know I’m a voice actor. For a word lover like me it’s the best job ever! I have a home studio that looks like a giant Tardis in its PJs. In September, I visited North Dakota for Anime Fargo. I didn’t see any desperate criminals (that I know of), just […]

Girl Friday’s Camelot & Vine

Girl Friday’s Camelot & Vine

Not just an author’s reading but an event. Petrea Burchard, author of Camelot & Vine—a time traveling historic, humorous, dramatic twist of a tale—welcomes one and all to a Girl Friday Book Club night on November 14th at Kidd’s Jewelry Heist in South Pasadena. The evening will begin with dessert and wine (all the ingredients […]

I rarely read the same book twice and I don’t always read the latest thing. I like snooping around independent book stores for new and used treasures. I read everything from classics to junk (only the finest junk, of course). But the most recent treasure I discovered was on my own bookshelf. I’d read Ray […]

There’s a place somewhere between the overdone, show-off prose of some “literary” fiction, and the merely serviceable, pulp genre stuff. In either case, the language can kick you out of the story. “That’s a beautiful sentence!” you think. Or “This is godawful stuff.” It doesn’t matter which, because the same thing happens. For a moment, […]

Camelot & Vine by Petrea Burchard

Camelot & Vine by Petrea Burchard

“I hadn’t planned on a mid-life crisis…but I was gripped by the urge to run.” “As soon as the plane took off I knew I’d made a mistake.…The pilot chattered away over the intercom. It would take something like nine hours to get to London. Nine hours of panic in economy class was just plain […]

Margaret Finnegan’s “The Goddess Lounge”

Margaret Finnegan’s “The Goddess Lounge”

Margaret Finnegan’s novel The Goddess Lounge turns Homer’s The Odyssey inside out. I know this not because I’ve read The Odyssey, but because I read its Wikipedia page. You don’t have to be familiar with Homer to laugh your way through Finnegan’s tale, but if you’re an Odyssey scholar (as is Finnegan), you’ll find her […]
