What Curve magazine has to say about “As the Crow Flies”

There are two romances for the price of one in this fascinating book, and the paranormal elements are skillfully woven through the entire story. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of ghost stories—I didn’t think I was but this book convinced me otherwise…The settings were described using wonderful language and imagery, and the quality of the writing overall was very high….I definitely recommend this book if you want something intellectual and a little bit different to sink your teeth into.

“Meeting Ms. Roman” Reviewed on The Lesbian Review


Ms. Roman is exotic and mysterious, but over the course of the story we are lured into her world right along with Catherine. Black Jaguar, Hermès scarf, dark sunglasses, eastern European accent… if these things do it for you, then Ms. Roman is your lady….
It was wonderful to experience a visit to the moors through Catherine’s eyes. I felt like I was right there with her as the mist descended and a low growl rumbled nearby.
