Reviews, Interviews and Praise for The Best Place

Susan Violante interviews Tyler for Seattle PI, September 18, 2013: The Best Place

Review - The Best Place: Reader Views, August 13, 2013

Interview - The Best Place: Reader Views, August 13, 2013

"The Best Place is for sure one of the most captivating and unique Historical Fiction book I read this year, one that will resonate in my mind for a while. I highly recommend it to adult readers, and place it at a high 5 star in my book!"
- Susan Violante of in Seattle PI, September 2, 2013

"The book is told through the viewpoint of this feisty, hilarious 77-year-old lady, and she's just a riot...because Lyla has this way of speaking her mind throughout the narration that draws you in and makes you chuckle no matter what topic she is talking about."
- Jenifer Brady, author of the Abby's Camp Days series

"Lyla, and her friend Bel, are so "real" I felt like I knew them personally. I had the feeling I was sitting with Lyla in her living room as she told the story of here life, sometimes skipping around as "old people" often do.... She's that "real." I laughed; I cried; I didn't want the book to end....There is a piece of her [Lyla] in most of us I think. And it's not a bad place to be." 
- Deborah Frontiera, author of Living on Sisu
