It is plain to see that Yvonne Mason knows crime. A graduate in Criminal Justice and a licensed bounty hunter, you can tell all the research that went into writing this book. She takes the infamous events of Whitechapel in 1888 and puts a interesting spin on the legend of Jack the Ripper. This book reads like one of those movies I used to watch as a kid from International Pictures or even the old Hammer Films of the ’60’s. Kudos to Yvonne for writing a story with well thought out characters and mixing in real-life historical references to make this novel a treat. The ending has just enough mystery to keep you guessing long after you finished it.

The Mad Hatter took over four years to complete. It was very important that the history of 1888 in Whitechapel be correct. I even purchased maps of Whitechapel in that time period. I purchased books on clothing, furniture,mercury poisoning, tanning, hats, money, the hat factory that was on the Thames, bridges and behavior- as well as many other details. I download photos of buildings of that time period, and I also went back to the research I had done when I was in College on Jack the Ripper. I basically drove myself nuts to make sure that the setting was as it should be for 1888 in the East End of London. Apparently it paid off. This reviewer understood what I was trying to do.
It was totally worth all of the rewrites the sleepless nights and the hair pulling to get it right.

More Poe!!!

For those of you who love Edgar Allen Poe I have a new podcast up where I read three more of his poems. He has always been one of my favorite authors. He was never appreciated for his work until long after he was gone. In fact, friends and family tried their best to discourage him from writing. But any of you who are artists, know it is not something we can do. If we don’t work our craft it drives us crazy. The three poems I read are not ones that are well known, however they are powerful. Edgar Allen Poe

If you haven’t yet read this great author you should.

Things You Might Not Have Known About Me!

I did an interview with my friend and fellow networker Lourdas Wellhaven. It was a deep in depth interview. There are no holds barred. We discuss everything from love, life, to reinventing oneself, to my books, to my brother.

If this interview helps to change one life it has been worth every second I spent talking.

Adding to My Craft I Now Write for Two Magazines

I am now writing for two magazines Vero’s Voice and a pet magazine titled Little Pampered Dog.com . My first two articles will be appearing in the next few days.

My first article in Vero’s Voice will discuss how anyone at any given time can be a victim. My article in Little Pampered Dog talks about my little Maltese Riley who found his forever home with us. I write the article as Riley.

You can find Vero’s Voice at http://verosvoice.com  and the Pampered Dog at http://littlepampereddog.com  I would appreciate each of my readers taking a look at these little magazines. They offer more articles than mine and are worthy of your time.
