About the Author: Barbara Hambly

Paperback é Dragonsbane MOBI ✓ dragonsbane free, DragonsbaneDragonsbane Kindleaka Barbara HamiltonRanging from fantasy to historical fiction, Barbara Hambly has a masterful way of spinning a story Her twisty plots involve memorable characters, lavish descriptions, scads of novel words, and interesting devices Her work spans the Star Wars universe, antebellum New Orleans, and various fantasy worlds, sometimes linked with our own I always wanted to be a writer but everyone kept telling me it was impossible to break into the field or make money I ve proven them wrong on both counts Barbara Hambly.
