You know what is cool? When you open a new book from one if your favorite authors, and there's a special thanks to your aunt inside!
Lou Buckingham is my aunt. I've mentioned before that she is in the Southern rock band Wasted Wine, but she also has a long and prolific solo career. Alex Bledsoe used one if her songs, "Valiant and Fury Girls," in the book Long Black Curl.
I haven't read Long Black Curl yet, but the last two books in the series were amazing. I recommend you start with The Hum and the Shiver.
