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

"The writing is taut and fun and
engaging. You always wonder where
things will go next. The pace is brisk
and the dialogue is peppered with funny
miscommunications and
misunderstandings...I dare you to try not
to laugh out loud.” -
Martyn Martello
