A Friend and Writer
We've known Sheila Lamb since she was a small child, and it has been a pleasure to watch her grow up into a smart, talented and literary woman.
Sheila is currently an MFA candidate at Queens University of Charlotte. Her stories have appeared in Steel Toe Review, Soundzine, Referential Magazine, Santa Fe Writers Project, and elsewhere. Her short story "Swim" has been nominated for the 2011 Pushcart prize.
Once A Goddess, the first in her trilogy about Brigid of Ireland, is an historical fantasy about Irish mythology that works even for people who aren't familiar with the genre, as I was not. The novel features well-drawn characters, compelling conflicts and evocative descriptions. It's a winner, as is this long-time friend.
The book is available in paperback or ebook on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or for order through your local independent bookstore.
I hope we will have many more books like this one from Ms. Lamb!
