What do Cookie Monster, the Abominable Snowman, Frankenstein, Gollum, Darth Vader, and Daniel Plainview have in common?

I’ll be talking about how each of them have fascinated and impressed me at different points in my life, and how they influenced the writing of Cyndere’s Midnight

THURSDAY NIGHT at 7 p.m., at Third Place Books.

I’ll also read from Cyndere’s Midnight and answer your questions. Copies of Cyndere’s Midnight, Auralia’s Colors, and Through a Screen Darkly will be available, and I’ll scribble on them if you like.
