Lila L. Pinord was born and raised in a small Native American fishing village. Many of her stories reflect this Indian way of life. Her first book, Skye Dancer was published in 2003. Since then Evil Lives in Blue Rock and Min's Monster were published. IN TIME, her latest, is an Urban Fantasy, is now on the market.
Review: Min's Monster is a riveting tale which is told in a way that grabs the readers attention from the very first page. I won't ruin anything about the plot - I recommend that you read the book for yourself - but the writing is brilliant! I think it's hard to write in a terrifying and tense way and this book is a great example if how to do it right. The characters are all complex and interesting and as the plot gathers momentum it's hard to put the book down! 5*'s well deserved!
