A Book and a Chat with Elizabeth Romero

Elizabeth Romero when younger often found herself lost in books that would just whisk her away to strange sounding places with strange sounding names. Her own younger life though had no such happy ending as she’d used to read about, married at a young age only to find herself four years later divorced with two young children to look after.

After a career in real estate she started her first novel which had been put on the back burner for several years. The result is not only her debut book, but the first in a series that has already received several great reviews.

Means To  An End”, is the first in Elizabeths “Redemption” series a thriller with a touch of romance set around New Orleans, an area that the author knows well having lived most of her life in the bayou country.

A Book and a Chat with Karen Klassen

My guest Karen Klassen once lived a life that many can relate to trapped in a world where every day was the same, a life that consisted of a steady downward spiral. Suppressing her true feelings and living a toxic lifestyle her physical body suffered and I manifested chronic back pain, IBS, addictions, TMJ, allergies, anorexia, depression, and scoliosis. Looking for a way out she married a man she thought was her knight in shining army only to find he was emotionally abusive leaving Karen to cry herself to sleep every wondering if there was another better life.

Then all that changed, she managed to find enough courage to get a divorce before in her late twenties she experienced a profound spiritual awakening which changed the course of her life forever. Karen embarked on a journey beyond the familiar as she delved into a spiritual practice of meditation, self reflection and a divine love she’d never known before. Instead of seeking love outside of herself she began to explore and transform her inner worlds and it was here she discovered her brilliance, a brilliance that lies within every woman.

In 2010 Karen launched Women Embracing Brilliance which brought brilliant women together to celebrate themselves, each other and their incredible journey.

Now Karen shares the experience in her book “The Freedom Frequency” which has been described as “one of the best-written self-help books” by a reviewer who has read many such books over the years.

About “The Freedom Frequency”: (taken from Amazon)

Did you know that your personal and spiritual growth contributes to the evolution of humanity? Do you feel you are being called to be more and live more purposefully? You have two choices in how you live your life. You can live below the line in the realm of fear where worry, stress, doubt, and the many negative states of mind can sabotage your relationships and dreams. Or you can live your life above the line in the vibrations of joy, fulfillment, love, and soul-inspired purpose. The choice is yours.

This book shows you a powerful and evolutionary way to view your mind, emotions, relationships and your life. I will show you how to release your fear-based mind and transform those inner voices that tell you, you’re not good enough, smart enough or unworthy of love and abundance. By embracing your Divine Mind, the Universal Intelligence inside of you, you raise your vibration and reclaim your power as a Divine Human Being. If you are ready to live a heart-centered life free of drama and stress, then The Freedom Frequency is a book you will want to read.

A Book and a Chat with Kristina McMorris

Talented author Kristina McMorris how she had been host of weekly TV shows since age nine, including an Emmy® Award-winning program.  While interviewing her grandmother for a cookery book she learned of her grandparent’s war time romance, this was the basis for her best selling multi award winning debut novel “Letters From Home”.

An account of a family friend - one who had fought for America and his brother for Japan which while researching lad her to brief mention of approximately two hundred non-Japanese spouses who had chosen to live voluntarily in the U.S. internment camps. Stunned and fascinated by the discovery, she instantly knew it was a story that needed to be told.  The result was another smash hit for Kristina with her novel “Bridge of Scarlet Leaves.”

Now Kristina is back on the show with what promises from the already rave reviews such as “Gripped me from the first page and didn't let go."  to be another “must read” this talented author, in the form of her latest novel “The Pieces We Keep”.

About “The Pieces That we Keep”:  (Taken from http://www.lybrary.com)

In this richly emotional novel, Kristina McMorris evokes the depth of a mother's bond with her child, and the power of personal histories to echo through generations...

Two years have done little to ease veterinarian Audra Hughes's grief over her husband's untimely death. Eager for a fresh start, Audra plans to leave Portland for a new job in Philadelphia. Her seven-year-old son, Jack, seems apprehensive about flying-but it's just the beginning of an anxiety that grows to consume him.

As Jack's fears continue to surface in recurring and violent nightmares, Audra hardly recognizes the introverted boy he has become. Desperate, she traces snippets of information unearthed in Jack's dreams, leading her to Sean Malloy, a struggling US Army veteran wounded in Afghanistan. Together they unravel a mystery dating back to World War II, and uncover old family secrets that still have the strength to wound-and perhaps, at last, to heal.

Intricate and beautifully written, The Pieces We Keep illuminates those moments when life asks us to reach beyond what we know and embrace what was once unthinkable. Deftly weaving together past and present, herein lies a story that is at once poignant and thought-provoking, and as unpredictable as the human heart.

Kristina McMorris always brings to the show not only her sparkling personality, but a fresh novel that to me is always a “must read”.

A Book and a Chat with Arnine Cumsky Weiss

If my guest had followed her childhood dream I could have been chatting to an interior designer on today’s show, instead Arnine Cumsky Weiss followed a career as a nationally certified sign language interpreter and a teacher of English as a second language. She has worked in the field of Deafness for over thirty years including signing at events from presidential speeches to a Broadway play, even at the childbirth of ten babies.

Along the way she has written six books, the first of which Becoming a Bar Mitzvah: A Treasury of Stories,was inspired by her oldest son surviving cancer. Arnine’s first novel “The Undefeated” was rolling around in her head for 20 years before she wrote it, using her own knowledge and experience. “The Undefeated” is a coming-of-age story of two young men set in northeastern Pennsylvania during the turbulent times of the civil rights movement. The book focuses on friendship and loyalty as each young man finds himself faced with adversity.

Now she has launched a new book “She Ain’t Heavy” which Arnine describes thus…

“In the aftermath of 9/11, I was fascinated with the stories of the people who were supposed to be in the towers that morning and were not. I wondered if they realized they were given a second chance and what they did with it. Although I changed the setting from New York to Philadelphia, I kept the theme of She Ain’t Heavy about getting a second chance.”

About “She Ain’t Heavy” :

Just when counter clerk Teddy Warner is about to be evicted from her Scranton apartment, she bumps into beautiful, brilliant, blond Rachel – her estranged childhood friend whose mother forbid their friendship thinking Teddy was beneath them.

Teddy and Rachel reconnect over hot chocolate and under New Year’s Eve fireworks.  Their discussion leads to an invitation. Soon, Teddy’s on her way to Philadelphia, where Rachel is a student, to share an apartment and begin an exciting new life in the City.


Teddy views Rachel as perfect.  Rachel can’t bring herself to shatter the image by letting on that she is having an affair with a married man. Just when Teddy is starting to feel at home, Rachel insists on some privacy.  Acting out her anger at being asked to stay away, Teddy indulges in a one-night stand.


When Teddy returns to their apartment the next morning, Rachel is being carried out on a stretcher – the victim of carbon monoxide poisoning. This unforeseen tragedy leaves Teddy alone in a strange city, with no money, no friends, and no connections.


As Teddy struggles to find her way, she meets a mentor at the same university Rachel previously attended who takes an interest in her, but with strings attached. She also develops a unique bond with the firefighter who rescued Rachel.  And yet, Teddy remains committed to helping Rachel get back on her feet, at a time when no one else who supposedly loves her can accept her in this diminished way.  Along the way, Teddy discovers her own strength in the roles of caretaker, lover, and friend.


If you love a strong female character, one with a lot of spunk and desire to survive against the odds, then pick up a copy of “She Ain't Heavy”. We can all learn a thing or two from a character like Teddy.

A Book and a Chat with Jennifer Wilck

If you like your romance novels with spunky heroines, strong heroes with just a touch of vulnerability, then my guest Jennifer Wilck is the author for you.
When Jennifer was young, rather than counting sheep when she had issues getting to sleep her mother told her to make up stories in her head hoping she would go to sleep. This soon became a routine which she admitted is something she still does to this day.

Eventually the voice became so strong she one day decided to write these stories down the results of which are now available for all to enjoy. Her first two book are “A Heart of Little Faith” and “Skin Deep”.

A Heart of Little Faith:

Lily Livingston is a widow raising her six-year-old daughter, Claire, in New York City. Devastated by her husband's death three years ago, she's in no hurry to fall in love again. Besides, trying to balance her career with motherhood leaves her little time for romance. With a wheelchair instead of a white horse, and a vow against falling in love again as his armor, Gideon Stone is the last person Lily expects to sweep her off her feet. But when a business agreement forces the two of them together, that is exactly what happens. As they navigate the minefield that fast represents their relationship, can either of them overcome the obstacles to find true happiness in each others arms? The answer is yes, but the bumps along the way demonstrate that neither of them can go it alone

Skin Deep:

The last thing Valerie needs, after escaping an abusive marriage to an alcoholic and rebuilding her life, is a broody, secretive, standoffish man. But that's exactly what she gets when she becomes a makeup artist on the set of a hit sitcom and draws the attention of the series' star. John Samuels hides a terrible past--a life of abuse and neglect. A successful acting career and the affection and support of cast, crew and friends, does nothing to convince him that he is anything other than an unlovable monster. Will he learn that the life he's been living has been built on a lie or will he be doomed to repeat the sins of his father?

These two have now been followed what promises to be the first of a series “The Seduction of Esther”.

About “The Seduction of Esther” : (taken from authors web site)

Samara Goldberg has a problem even the most beautiful singing voice can’t fix. She’s a walking disaster, especially when she’s around handsome men. To make matters worse, she’s in desperate need of someone to play the character of Mordecai for the Purim spiel she’s producing and the new congregant, Nathaniel Abramson, is a perfect fit. Nathaniel is a divorced dad who’s recovering from the biggest public scandal of his life. The last thing he needs is a relationship with the choir director at his new synagogue, who also happens to be playing the lead female role of Esther in the very play he’s been coerced into joining.

Woven around the Jewish holiday of Purim, The Seduction of Esther is a story of two people whose lives mirror the plot of the Purim story. Like Esther, who had to hide her Jewish identity from the King of Persia, Samara and Nathaniel are hiding key pieces of themselves. Evil Haman wanted to destroy the Jews, and the nasty Josh will do anything to keep Samara and Nathaniel apart. Will their love survive, like the Jewish people in Shushan, Persia, or will their fear keep them apart?


With a follow up to “The Seduction of Esther” and a story based around an old house already underway, the name Jennifer Wilck is one for lovers of romance need to follow.

A Book and a Chat with Frank F. Fiore

If like myself you like the type of adventure novels written by Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy then my guest on tonight’s show has a book for you. Frank F. Fiore is a bestselling author of over 50,000 copies of his non-fiction books. His success has continued since our last chat following up his much praised action-adventure novel "Cyberkill" with four more must read books.

Cyberkill is described by one reviewer thus…
I've seen the future of war and it is by remote control. No longer will it be a fight of soldiers and guns, but rival lines of code will compete for victory over the enemy's information infrastructure. Such dramatic change is fraught with danger. While technology is advancing at such an accelerated rate, do we continue to control the machines or are they starting to control us?

Frank Fiore's `Cyberkill' is a fast paced high-tech thriller that goes straight to the heart of the matter, feeding our worst robotic nightmares. Technology's cutting edge becomes double-edged in the hands of a chilling cyber-terrorist, who is unwittingly aided by a corrupt and unscrupulous military. Nanotechnologies, biological warfare and killer robots are all part of the repertoire that together threatens the very existence of all mankind.

As the news over the past years this is not to far away from the truth…
.
Frank followed up with an three book adventure series "The Chronicle's of Jeremy Nash" the formula which consists of a conspiracy theory, unsolved mystery, urban myth, New Age belief or paranormal practice that Nash is forced to pursue; combined with an underlying real world event, organization or persons that is somehow connected to what he is pursuing. This provides the thriller aspect of the stories.

Now his latest book “The Oracle” has been released, though it was as we found out 40 years in the making. 

About “The Oracle”:

“The Oracle” consists of a series of short stories tied together by means of a background story – a story within a story (similar to Ray Bradbury’s “Illustrated Man”). And like the Jeffrey Archer and Twilight Zone stories, the Oracle short stories are written with surprise endings.

While this is Frank’s latest book he also shared with us about his next book, which he believes will firmly put his name on the literary map.

It’s called MURRAN. Frank firmly believes this will be his breakthrough novel because it is steeped in politically incorrect controversy and is already getting very good reviews from my beta readers.

MURRAN is the story of a young African-American boy named Trey coming of age in the 1980s, and his rite of passage to adulthood. Trey is a member of a ‘crew’ in Brooklyn and is enticed into helping a violent drug gang. He is eventually framed for murder and flees with his high school teacher to his Maasai village in Kenya. There, Trey learns what a true Black African and African culture is, goes through the Maasai warrior’s rite of passage, becomes a young shaman, and returns to America to confront the gang leader that framed him.

The show proved to be both interesting and entertaining, so why not tune in now or download the file to listen to another time, to "A Book and a Chat with Frank F Fiore"

A Book and a Chat with Rosalyn Berne

Rosalyn Berne has always known that she was different from most people.  Even as a child she was aware of things that others could not see or hear, experiencing the life force around her. As she grew older like a lot of things, this gift seemed to leave her as she dedicated her life to education.

With a BA, MA, and PH.D in hand, Rosalyn as a university professor she writes and teaches about engineering and technology in society and the ethical implications of technological development, often using science fiction material in her classes.

Then about 6 years ago the talents that had laid latent since she was a child started to return and with them something new that has since changed her life.

Returning to Costa Rica―a once–visited sanctuary—she sought solace from the world and hoped to begin healing from a painful divorce and the subsequent breakdown of her family.   Drawn to the horses that are part of the working farm-resort that was her retreat, she suddenly and unexpectedly received a gift―the ability to communicate with them.   And what they said changed her life.

In her book “When the Horses Whisper” Rosalyn shows the true power of horses.  Once they realized that Rosalyn was able to ‘hear’ them they opened up completely, showing her a world of strength, beauty and, most importantly, love.  She begins to realize how strong the bond is between horse and human and how anyone can communicate with them on a deeper level.   She also learns how they can help humans to heal from loss and pain as she begins to recover from her own grief, including the loss of a child, a traumatic childhood encounter, and the end of her marriage.

About “When the Horses Whisper” : (taken from Authors web site)

When the Horses Whisper shows the capacity of horses to help us heal the human heart. It expresses human language what horses have to say when given the chance to speak. It is a story about the bond between horse and human, and the communication made possible when the bond is based on love. 

Conversations with fifteen horses most of whom live and work in Costa Rica, are featured along with their photographs, capturing them as individual beings in service to humans on a shared evolutionary journey. This journey amounts to the remembering of our whole selves in the wholeness of creation, especially the parts we split off, deny, and place in shadow because they are too painful. Horses, as the book shows, can help us see these lost parts, and call forth our courage to reclaim them. 


For the author, these included the loss of a newborn daughter, the mental illness of an adult son, letting go of a thirty-year marriage, and childhood sexual abuse. The story recounts the equine healing work that helped in reclaiming her authentic self. This book is testimony to the power of horses and equine healing work in transforming life’s losses into a deeper human wholeness and a further communion with the non-human world.

A Book and a Chat with Natalie Gayle



In her teens Natalie Gayle, author of Finding Trust and the guest on today’s “A Book and a Chat” took an occupational test and it said I should be a writer. She did not think anything more of it creating a career as a project manager in IT, all the time though this longing to become a writer was there bubbling under the surface.

As we learned during an entertaining though due to phone issues a sometimes interrupted show, this hidden need to write finally produced Natalie’s debut novel Finding Trust” which was released earlier this year and has been followed by “Finding Judgment”.

Finding Trust is not your normal romance novel, it is part contemporary romance, part romantic suspense, and part science fiction ...or paranormal romance with some urban fantasy thrown in for good measure. The result however is a book that many are already stating is a “must read” and one that you just can’t put down.

About “Finding Trust”:

He’s hot, sexy, and leads a double life. Sometimes in the limelight, mostly in the shadows. Brayden James holds fast to a secret that’s more than his to share. 

She’s a singularly focused veterinarian out for a rare night of fun with friends, at a New Year’s Eve rock concert. Going home with the lead guitarist was furthest thing from Rihanna Mason’s mind when the night began.

When Rihanna inadvertently becomes the target of a deadly terrorist plot using the Hendra virus as a biological weapon, Brayden is forced to reveal his other life.  His job is to keep her safe and together they must stop the terrorists before it’s too late. But what happens when she becomes more to him than just the assignment?

Will the secret he cannot disclose ultimately prove too much for Rihanna’s fragile trust in relationships? Or will he finally break through the double brick walls around her heart, where every other man has failed?

As one reviewer stated about what she liked about the book…

WHAT I LIKED: Everything. I was drawn in from the very first page and the connection I felt to the characters was intense. Instead of feeling like I was the reader, I felt like I was every characters; I loved when they did, cried when they did, jumped in surprise when they did, etc. I felt like these characters and the story were pouring out of the pages and into my apartment. The author is very talented and has gained a new fan... Me.

Well reviewer I too have joined the band of fans of Natalie Gayle

A Book and a Chat with DV Berkom

Today’s guest DV Berkom is the author of two bestselling thriller series featuring strong female protagonists.

Always having this driving force to write, DV’s first effort was created at the age of seven. After attempts with fantasy and mystery, DV found her true vocation writing two bestselling thriller series.

Her first, the “Kate Jones Thriller Series”, which include Bad Spirits, Dead of Winter, Death Rites and Touring for Death began as an online serial. Her second, “The Leine Basso Thriller Series”, features former assassin Madeleine (Leine) Basso, whose past returns to haunt her in “Serial Date” and “Bad Traffick”.

Her Obvious love of her love of creating resilient, kick-*ss female characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

DV normally gets her ideas from the news. Something hits her between the eyes and she can ‘see’ the main characters, and many of the secondary ones. The “Kate Jones Thriller series” for instance began when reports of rising cartel violence began trickling north. The book Serial Date was my response to the over-abundance of scripted reality shows and DV wrote Bad Traffick after watching a documentary on child sex-trafficking.

DV’s latest book is "Yucatan Dead" the sixth in the  Kate Jones series it is  set in steamy Mexican jungle as Kate hides from a ruthless drug lord who was her former lover.

About “Yucatan Dead” : (taken from the authors web site)

She was a dangerous man's lover--now she's his dangerous enemy.
For Kate Jones, being on the run from her former lover—the vicious leader of a Mexican drug cartel—was never going to be easy. But with a new identity, a new lover, and a new life in Arizona, she was beginning to believe she'd made it through the worst.


Then, in an act of twisted revenge, Kate's kidnapped and imprisoned by her deadly enemy, his intention to force her to pay back the money she stole before he kills her.


Fate intervenes and she finds herself working against the cartels deep in the Yucatan with a group of rogue commandos. From peaceful northern Arizona to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Kate Jones must decide for herself if she'll continue to run...


...or turn and fight the evil that pursues her.


As the Pacific Book Review stated…”Yucatán Dead is a gripping thriller with a gutsy heroine and a tightly woven plot; it will no doubt please Berkom's current fans and gather more.”

I for one have joined those fans of today’s guest DV Berkom.

Her latest novel “Anselm, a Metamorphosis” is a fantasy thriller has taken many years to see the light of day starting as a short story several years ago before now revealing itself as a full grown novel.
