Works of note…

Murder at Avedon Hill

“An incredible debut by P.G. Holyfield, “Murder at Avedon Hill” blends the best elements of the mystery/thriller genres with a brilliantly realized fantasy setting. While the world of MaAH is remarkable and authentic, the slick mystery elements and memorable characters will keep you turning the pages. Highly recommended.”

Quote

“Drama is about lies. Drama is about repression… Drama is about finding previously unsuspecting meaning in chaos, about discovering the truth that had previously been obscured by lies, and about our persistence in accepting lies.” –David Mamet
