Tori Eldridge, Natalie Naudus: The Ninja’s Blade (AudiobookFormat, 2020, Blackstone Pub) 5 stars

Review of 'The Ninja\x92s Blade' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

tough themes, wonderful character

Lily Wong captivated me in Tori Eldridge's first book featuring her. This second outing contains tough themes, but Lily is up for the challenge. Lily Wong is no paladin--she makes mistakes and suffers the consequences. Still, her heart is big and her body tough, and her dad and her Sensei keep her on track.

Thomas Tramble, Wilma Tramble: The Pullman Porters and West Oakland (CA) (Images of America) (Paperback, 2007, Arcadia Publishing, Arcadia Pub.) 4 stars

Review of 'The Pullman Porters and West Oakland (CA) (Images of America)' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I've got an idea for a story involving a Pullman Porter in the 1930s or 1940s. When I get a bit of inspiration, I usually turn to Arcadia's "Images of America" books to visualize it properly. Having written five IoA books, I feel good about that. :)

The Pullman Porters and West Oakland was exactly what I needed to get a start. Great background and wonderful photos.
