My first experience with J. K. Rowling's book, Harry Potter, was how enthusiastic children were to read it.
I had no intention of reading the book. Fantasy is so overdone that I had no interest. But a friend of mine's child wanted me to read the book. Her mom said it was a good read. I'm picky in that time flies. I have read all seven books.
I wanted to think that Rowling's stories weren't great literature when I read them. However, I was wrong, the stories endure. fascinate and illuminate a complex world that spawns much more thought and analysis. My sister is recuperating from a stroke. Her attention span was originally nil. She re-watched the movies. The stories have such a compelling power to engage.
I met Dana Ridenour at the Southeastern Writer's Conference and purchased her book "Behind The Mask". Dana had worked for the FBI and her knowledge she used to create the book is firsthand and accurate.
I enjoyed the fast paced book describing an undercover operation of investigation an underground world that an everyday person can be sucked into given the right circumstances and friends.
