Reviews of Checkered Scissors:Checkered Scissors

"I read a really good book like I eat a really good dinner - slowly, so I can get the most out of it; in this case the story and creativity that goes into it. You are very talented, creative and aware. These qualities show throughout the chapters."

"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!"

"What an incredibly imaginative book! I really don't know how the author thought up half the things in here. Crazy characters, crazier worlds. Just brilliant. It really sucks you in and makes you curious about what happens next."
