I can't find a thing about this author and she interests me immensely. Her last name is Scottish for sure. Would love to know where she is from. If any of you know anything about her let me know!
I can't find a thing about this book, but it appears the author has several parody books. Again a Scottish name. The cover on this one grabbed my attention.
