My possible agent loved The Hummingbird Wizard, first in the series. He wrote to me and said, “Hey! You could be one of the Big Boys!” But, he felt a woman should read the book because, well, he just wanted to get a woman’s slant.
His reader, a young woman, maybe ten-years-old, said, “Okay, the main character in this series has got to be pushing 40. (Actually, it was 50 and maybe a bit). She continued, “And I have to say, the idea of people that age having sex really grosses me out.” I vowed to keep the letter until she turned 40 and send it to her. Our life is too much of a Gypsy road to be able to keep track of much but people and animals, but it still amazed me. And, that the seasoned agent was swayed by her view? That was kind of strange, too.
No wonder I couldn’t find the mysteries I wanted to read! And so the story goes… The Hummingbird Wizard, The Priestess Cirque, and The Red Hot Empress were born, and Baby # 4 is on the way.
