A Book and a Chat with B.A. Chepaitis

I am pleased to say we have another welcome returning guest for tonight’s “A Book and a Chat” in the form of author B.A. or Barbara Chepaitis.

Barbara is the author of numerous books, including The Fear Principle, the critically praised Feeding Christine and These Dreams. As well as her first nonfiction book, books Feathers of Hope, about Berkshire Bird Paradise and the human interaction with birds.

Barbara started by sharing with us the latest news about Mitch the eagle that was rescued by Navy Seals in Afghanistan and now brought back to the US and is now settled in at the same Berkshire Bird Paradise featured in “Feathers of Hope”. We also learned that a new book about Mitch and his long journey from the battle field t across the many miles to USA and the sanctuary. Something to me that would make a great film (Disney are you listening?).

Barbara has also been adding to her Sci-fi / Paranormal books about Jaguar Addams in the form of her new novel “The Green Memory of Fear”. This book as we heard during another really entertaining program is very close to Barbara’s heart, forcing her to revisit that real incident, a very painful one of loss and trauma.

Though the material is profoundly dark in some places, it always struggles to move toward light because Jaguar is a woman who knows both light and dark in equal measure, and is determined to move through shadow toward light. As Alex, her cohort and would-be lover says to her, she turns poison into medicine. That’s who she is. What she does.

About “The Green Memory of Fear”:

On Prison Planetoid Three, Jaguar Addams uses her empathic gifts to make criminals face the fears that drive their heinous acts. Very few escape the telepathic web she weaves around them . . . until now. When Jaguar takes on a home planet assignment, investigating a psychiatrist on trial for abuse of a little boy, she finds a killer unlike any she’s faced before.

Dr. Senci’s psi skills are a match for her own, and unless she consents to do as he wants, he’ll use them to kill everyone she loves. Once she realizes who and what he really is, she leaves the Planetoid to go after him.

But Supervisor Alex Dzarny isn’t about to let her go it alone, even if it means losing his own life to save hers.

As a reviewer stated about “The Green Memory of Fear”:
“...this is SF at its realistic best.”

So listen now and share an interesting,and entertaining thirty minutes with my guest B.A. Chepaitis.
