What the Critics Say...

"Kate Danley has served up a female
lead character to fill the gap that the
ending of
Buffy the Vampire Slayer left
in the world of sci-fi/fantasy."
-Twisting the Lens

"If urban fantasy could be bottled,
then
this story is a shot-glass full of
awesomesauce."
-Dark Side of the Covers

"Five Stars -
The Woodcutter is a
must read for both the lover of fantasy
and mystery."
-Reader Views

"Five Stars - I had a glorious time
reading this book. I truly couldn’t put it
down.  The climax of this story was
truly heart-stopping"
-
Akamai Reader

"Kate Danley's unprintable fairy
godmother is beyond hysterical"
-LA Times

"RECOMMENDED - The show's comic
timing is so tight you could time a
murder to it, with lusciously campy
acting turns from Danley's tongue-
waggling hag of a guardian angel."
- LA Weekly

“If you love those great old screwball
comedies from Hollywood’s Golden
Era of the 1930s, you will love
Building
Madness.  The plot is straight-forward
fun, and what author Danley does with
it is rich.“
-Tolucan Times

"The writing is sharp, with lots of great
jokes and witty comments flying
between the characters"
-Theatre Bath UK
