Hamburgers for Thanksgiving?

Can Susie successfully cook Thanksgiving dinner, or will the day end in tears?Susie is hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, but Susie can burn water. Will the dinner go on as planned, or will they eat hamburgers for Thanksgiving?"As someone whose adventures in the kitchen do not always go as planned, I felt a lot of sympathy and empathy for the intrepid, if naive, heroine. I’d gamble that if not this exact series of events, at least something very similar has happened to the author. It felt that real." - Katie Lawson, 4/27/2014

Mirror

Who would have thought that a mirror would cause so much heartache?When Ned's great-aunt Myrtle died, he inherited some land in north-central Texas. The only thing of value on the property was an old mirror.

Whether she’s spent a lot of time there in real life or in her imagination isn’t important really, it just feels fully inhabited and will be enjoyed by fans of tv’s Supernatural." - Katie Lawson, 4/27/2015
