I’ve had the pleasure of reading a couple of Nathaniel Hawthorne short stories this year through two of my university courses, The Birthmark and most recently, Young Goodman Brown. This got me thinking about Salem, Massachusetts…and of course what it is most famous for.
What I didn’t know before was that Nathaniel Hawthorne had ancestors that were involved in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Hawthorne was born in Salem, so his family must have resided in the town for several generations. For more information on the Witch Trials (I found this an interesting account of what happened and why) click here. There was a lot of misunderstandings that got completely out of hand, and were fueled by young girls and family resentments.

We are very happy to welcome quthor Tara Taylor Quinn here at Book Lovers Inc today. Actually not she’s posting here today, rather the heroine of her popular Champan Files series, Kelly Chapman.

The Oedipal Complex has never been so sexy…
Alex Carradine can’t believe his father wants to come and visit his ski resort. Could it be that after so many stormy years, “slick Mitch” Carridine wants to offer an olive branch? Maybe the old man is mellowing, settling down with the new lover he’s bringing along.
Then Alex realizes the acid truth. This is no warm family visit. His father’s latest conquest is none other than the woman of Alex’s sexual fantasies, meant only to dangle tauntingly in front of his face. At least an unexpected blizzard has frozen his father out of the picture …
