PRAISE FOR “THREE DANDELION STARS:”

“…the various conflicts that simmer throughout and erupt at the climax bring the story to a gratifying close.” – The 1000 Year Plan

“What follows is a beautifully crafted tale of both love and hardship, despair and hope. Lovely and piercing.” – Maria Haskins

PRAISE FOR “JEWEL OF THE VASHWA:”

“Kurella tells her tale with a commanding voice, almost as if it is being sung by a fire, and the rhythm of the prose adds to its power.” – Maria Haskins, Barnes & Noble Sci Fi Blog

“Whatever the case, though, the story leaves it up to the reader to believe or not each version of the story, asking each time what her burden is, and why she bears it. It’s a complex and passionate story well worth your time and attention!” – Charles Payseur, QuickSip Reviews
