We welcome Raven Presley to R@R with her new weekly recaps of this season of ONCE UPON A TIME: "Before we begin our tale, first let us briefly remember the story of Elsa and Anna of Arrendale.

Setting the Scene For Romance

I’ve been asked many times: how do you chose the setting of your stories? And why? I’ll be completely honest: I like to choose settings where I’ve actually been. So that means Texas! The reason is that I know what the cities look and feel like. Knowing where I am makes it easier to actually visualize the story taking place.

Ten Things You Didn’t Know About: Ellen Meister

I first met Ellen Meister at her book reading for Farewell, Dorothy Parker at the fabulous club Wit’s End. That night got me hooked on her magical way of bringing readers back to a different era, and bringing legendary women to life. With the release of her latest novel, DOROTHY PARKER DRANK HERE, it seemed the perfect time to introduce her to new readers, and to share a bit of trivia with her fans.

THE AMERICANS: Season 3, Episode 5

Scandal is here with her weekly recap of THE AMERICANS. This week, it seems spy life is finally catching up with Philip. "As much as I love how strong Elizabeth is, I think Philip and his seemingly insurmountable struggles, is my favorite character. That poor man breaks my heart."

Agent Carter

AGENT CARTER, Season Finale

Elizabeth K. Mahon is here with her recap of the AGENT CARTER season finale: "It was a great season. It started off a little slow but it picked up steam as it went along. TV needs more women like Peggy Carter, smart and independent, capable of taking care of themselves. Oh, and Jarvis, we definitely need more Jarvis..."

Danny has started to resemble a helicopter mom and is hovering over Mindy telling her not to stand too close to the microwave or drink coffee. He also wants Mindy to start eating healthy. But Mindy finally has a reason to eat for two and she’s not going to let it go to waste...


I have to admit, I loved this book. I stayed up overnight to finish it in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. Yes, it is syrupy sweet, but there was just something about this second chance romance that resonated with me. The characters were real, down to earth, and so completely relatable that I fell in love.

HIS TO TAKE (Wicked Lovers #9) by Shayla Black

Told from alternating third person points of view, HIS TO TAKE focuses on the search for a missing woman who disappeared twenty years earlier and is presumed dead at the hands of a terrorist cell searching for information into DNA manipulation.

SLEEPY HOLLOW, Season Finale

The show opens with a nice war montage: shots being prepared, guns being loaded. An epic Revolutionary War fight scene plays out, with Ichabod being a bad ass and busting Redcoats in the face as he searches for the Hessian with a mark on his hand. This is somewhat familiar, as it’s a throwback to the shows first episode. A lot of this final episode of the season (and perhaps of the series?) goes back to the original well, both as a love letter to the fans and as a way of starting from scratch...

The Marriage of Music and Storytelling

Although I try to be disciplined with my writing, the process that gets me from the first page to the last page is sometimes unorthodox. To the dismay of many I don’t necessarily plot in the traditional sense. Usually the characters take control and guide my hand, making me the conduit for the story they want to tell. But what is always consistent with everything I write is the music...
