Hi! Yes, it was I. They are addictive, aren't they? Even though I see some flaws in writing, and some (little) gaps in continuity, still they are absolutely addicitve series. I always liked fantasy, but this year my escapism took an upturn.
Among favorite fantasy heroes- if I had my d'rathers- I'd pick an hour with Harry Dresden ( unsexy hero though he is), but "Fever" series certainly spiked my interest in Ireland! -and some sexy mysterious protagonists do not hurt:)
Happy reading! Please write your thoughts when you finish.
Looks like Loudon hasn't put out its hiring list yet for licensed teachers. I'd keep checking that site as Loudon is a hugely fast growing county and apparently a very good county to work for. You could also try Falls Church public schools http://www.fccps.org/hr/careercenter/11/ (Falls Church is a fabulous little oasis of liberalism in VA - and Northern VA is considered a "liberal area" of VA but its all relative). Montgomery county schools are very well thought of also (like Fairfax) and they may have their hiring list open http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/departments/careers/
