Reviews of Checkered Scissors:Checkered Scissors

"This was a very imaginative story that kept me entertained from the first page to the last page. It was a light and easy read, perfect for reading right before going to sleep. When I would wake up, I would wonder what new characters I created in my very own dream world."

"Checkered Scissors transports you to a fantasy world that will make you think about "ordinary" life in new ways.The characters are searching for meaning in their lives, but that meaning is unique to each individual. Their intersecting journeys take you everywhere from Austin, Texas, to the world of dreams and even to the afterlife. Overall, Checkered Scissors is an enjoyable read for anyone who's yearned to step through the looking glass or crawl out the back of the wardrobe!"
