By the time Ichabod “Icky” Temperance sent me a few of his books to review, we had already been friends online for a long time. He has been a faithful follower of my blog since the beginning, but it wasn’t until I got an e-mail talking about his books that I knew how he found his way to writing. He and his […]
In the Harry Potter books and movies, there was a common theme of everyone , no matter who you are, what age, faces issues of ‘fighting for rights’.
