If you’ve stopped over at my personal blog, A Christian Worldview of Fiction, you know that I am blogging about a book I haven’t read. How can a person do that?

Well, let me make it clear, I am not offering a review of the book. Fortunately, a number of other CSFF Blog Tour participants are doing a fine job telling visitors about the featured book, Kathryn Mackel‘s Vanished.

Instead, I’ve chosen the role of facilitator. I want to acquaint visitors with Kathryn Mackel and point to the blogs on the tour you won’t want to miss.

The more I poke around at Kathryn Mackel’s Web site and blog, the more I read interviews with her, the more interesting things I uncover.

So here’s a short quiz, just to see how well you know our featured author. Be sure to leave a comment and tell us how well you did. Answers are below the list of particapant links at the end of this post.
