Inspired by real-life tales of dissociative amnesia, I jumped into crafting this thriller after stumbling upon a news story about a guy who, post-coma, fully embraced a stranger's identity.
KRL is taking a vacation this weekend to celebrate the new year! We will have some new articles during the week, and a small issue on January 6, then back to normal after that. Happy New Year!
Harlow Cassidy may not have planned to go from being a fashion designer in Manhattan to running her late great-grandmother’s dressmaking boutique in Bliss, Texas, but it’s the best thing that could ever have happened.
Sandy Moss may be a practicing family law attorney in a Los Angeles law firm, but she’ll always be a Jersey Girl at heart. New Jersey’s not about to give her up either, as she’s being recalled to attend the wedding of her first cousin Stephanie, who since childhood Sandy has called “Skinny.” Sandy’s not exactly enthusiastic about attending because while her perfect sister Delia is a bridesmaid, Sandy is barely on the “C” list of invitees.
A senior Cairn girl, Minuet is a true Cairn princess, according to her foster mom, Linda. “She is happy when things go her way,” says Linda. “But, she growls a warning when I disturb her sleep or try to do something she is not on board with.” That’s OK with Linda, an experienced foster mom who is used to terrier-tude. However, she does sometimes call Minuet “Grumpy Granny.”
After over 300 years of keeping so much of her life a secret, Zoe Faust is slowly learning to open up to the friends she’s come to love. Now that she’s settled in Portland, Oregon and reunited with her fellow alchemists Tobias Freeman and Nicolas Flamel, she feels supported and comfortable enough to begin a relationship with Detective Max Liu. Although it’s been a bumpy road convincing him that she wasn’t crazy, he now fully accepts that she is a 350-plus year old practicing alchemist.
You know how sometimes you have really good food, but you don’t finish it, so you have a refrigerator full of leftovers? Food reviewers can have a version of that. Maybe you come across a great restaurant, but it doesn’t fit the theme you had planned for that month, so the pictures sit in your phone until you can’t quite remember what you ate or where it was. That happened to me this year, so I present—LEFTOVERS 2023!

Earlier this year, I watched season one of the anime Oshi No Ko, so I was excited to start reading the manga, hoping to go beyond that first season. However, Volumes 1 and 2 haven’t taken me there yet. But it was still interesting to revisit the story and get some bits that weren’t in the anime. The manga is published by YenPress. This is definitely one of my favorite anime/manga series!
