About the Author

Molly Ringle was one of the quiet, weird kids in school, and is now one of the quiet, weird writers of the world. She likes thinking up innovative romantic obstacles and mixing them with topics like Greek mythology, ghost stories, fairy tales, or regular-world scandalous gossip. She's into mild rainy climates, gardens, '80s new wave music, chocolate, tea, and perfume (or really anything that smells good). She has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of her life, aside from grad school in California and one work-abroad season in Edinburgh in the 1990s. Molly currently lives in Seattle with her husband, kids, guinea pigs, corgi, and a lot of moss. Her growing list of successful titles include: The Chrysomelia Stories 1. Persephone's Orchard 2. Underworld's Daughter 3. Immortal's Spring The Goblins of Bellwater All the Better Part of Me Lava Red Feather Blue Sage & King

Reviews

"All the Better Part of Me is a standout novel in so many ways--breezy and sensitive as it touches the heart." -- Steve Kluger, author of Almost Like Being in Love
"A lovely combination of breezy plot, page-turning prose, and very, very likable characters. This one will definitely please old fans, and I suspect create many new fans too." -- Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club and The Otto Digmore Difference
"A tender and poignant romance, a gorgeous hero, and the perfect balance of humour and realism." -- Jamie Deacon, author of Caught Inside
"Ringle navigates her twisty revelations and dramatic conclusion with just enough weight to avoid mawkishness, and her characters earn their happy ending. Readers looking for introspective romances with winding plots will enjoy this heartfelt novel." -- Publishers Weekly
"Entertaining, nuanced... Ringle navigates her twisty revelations and dramatic conclusion with just enough weight to avoid mawkishness, and her characters earn their happy ending. Readers looking for introspective romances with winding plots will enjoy this heartfelt novel." -- Publishers Weekly
"Known for her fantasy romances (e.g., The Goblins of Bellwater), Ringle here switches gears with a realistic story of a young man wrestling with his bisexuality. Twenty-five-year-old actor Sinter Blackwell has always been attracted to women. But lately he can't stop thinking about his gay best friend, Andy, living back home in Seattle and newly returned to the dating market. Even a mutual attraction between Sinter and his female director can't distract him from fantasies about Andy and what would happen if they followed up on that kiss they shared as teens. Though it means giving up a budding acting career in London, Sinter is willing to follow his heart and take a chance on Andy, even though he risks disappointing his conservative family. When the two best friends finally get together, Sinter discovers that his new identity may take more courage than he's comfortable with. This honest coming-of-age romance will resonate with those who are discovering their own sexual identity, while Sinter and Andy's flirtatious, tentative romance should please all lovers of the genre." -- Kathryn Howe, Library Journal
"A deftly crafted and thoroughly reader engaging novel by an author with a distinctive and effective narrative storytelling style, Molly Ringle's "All the Better Part of Me" is unreservedly recommended for community library Contemporary General Fiction collections." --Willis Buhle, Midwest Book Review
