A proud woman, cursed with love


My historical fiction trilogy, The David Chronicles, which opens with the novel Rise to Power , presents a surprising contrast before you: the story harkens back to biblical times — yet by design, it is expressed in modern language. Why? Because such is my way to suggest to you that this is no fairytale. It is happening here and now. I invite you to step into the skin of my character, become David, and look yourself in the mirror. Readers often ask me, "Were you quoting the bible or paraphrasing? I’m used to read the King James version, and I'm certain you aren’t." To which I say, “All the English versions — King James included — are translations. Therefore, they are interpretations of the o...

A WW II sy thriller like no other

Profile Image for Convoke
Just found this lovely review for the audiobook edition of my WWII spy thriller Marriage before Death : Convoke USA12-23-17 Overall Performance Story A WW II sy thriller like no other  Any additional comments? Marriage before Death by Uvi Poznansky is a treasure, read alone or in its place in her series. We follow characters from her other books into a WWII milieu, with all the unparalleled darkness of those days. Poznansky's talent and resonance with the story means that you can read Marriage before Death on its own or as Book 5 in a series, following (Book 1: My Own Voice, Book 2: The White Piano, Book 3: The Music of Us, Book 4: Dancing with Air). Poznansky's protagonist Lenny, narrowly e...

Vases of purple and rose delphiniums


Feathered back from her delicately-featured face, Julie’s ash-brown hair had been cut to her shoulders. While emphasizing the beauty of her doe-brown eyes, and their long lush lashes, long wispy bangs completed her look. Wearing an off the shoulder gown of lavender, which clung to her full figure like a second skin, she was even more daringly dressed than usual. “Oh, Julie. That dress is absolutely gorgeous on you, too!” Kate complimented.  Julie stared sheepishly down at her gown. “Danielle Reardon finally got a hold of me, too. She was hanging out with your mom when I was getting my hair cut.” Dylan’s voice was hoarse, when he finally cleared his throat and spoke. “Julie, you really do loo...

This is the family we are


And I press my head to his chin till I feel him wiggling his upper lip, ‘cause my hair is frizzy, and so it must be tickling his nose. And through the fabric, the thin cotton of this dress, I feel his hands on my body, his flesh against mine, and it’s coming forward, so I reckon he wants me, like, awful hard. “Take it off,” says Lenny. So I slip the dress off, ‘cause it don’t belong to me, but to Natasha. Wearing it must have been a mistake, ‘cause this thing brings her back to him, and for some reason, it brings out other feelings, which I’m not sure I get, exactly. So I step out of it, and see it puddling there, on the floor, like a piece of blue ice, melting.  Then, on the whim of a momen...

Sunshine and flowers


“I’m sorry.” She stroked his palm with her thumb, not expecting the reaction it produced. He used their joined hands to pull her closer so that she now rested on him from the waist up. Then he threaded his fingers through her long hair and pushed it behind her shoulders. Slightly longer than Cathy’s, it drew his attention. He leaned in and sniffed the strands he’d gathered. “Hmm, sunshine and flowers—it smells nice.” Anne heard the words, but having his large hands anywhere on her body had created such an effect that she couldn’t speak. After he’d petted her hair, he moved to her face and then cradled her head, holding it in place for his lips to follow. They grazed her cheeks. Then he kisse...

#Interview With Susanne Leist!


Hey Everyone!! :-) Please join me in welcoming accomplished author, Susanne Leist!  Susanne, can you please tell us about yourself and how many books you have written?

So I mix a drink for both of us


Then, the last thing I do — despite knowing it may cause us to be late — is something I have not done in a long while, but I tell myself that at this point, she may need it. I sure do.  So I mix a drink for both of us, and not just any old drink: it is the one Natasha loves, the one that used to remind her to loosen up around me and be ready for some excitement. And it is the one that makes me feel naughty. Even after all these years of knowing her I still feel as if I were just about to corrupt the innocent. There is a slight tremor in my hands, which I must overcome, for her sake and mine. Oh, let me live in the moment! Let everything else fade away. Let all my worries disappear — until la...

Weekend Writing Warriors - #SundaySnippet - Beloved Enemy, The Destiny Trilogy Book 3 - Things begin to heat up!


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warrior and 8 Sentence Sunday, the weekly hop for everyone who loves to read and write!  First of all, I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy,Peaceful and productive New Year, and I hope you all had a good Christmas with family and friends.

I also had a traumatic few days when I had to have one of my two beloved horses put to sleep, when his battle with arthritis became too much. I've not been on-line all very much since before Christmasso I hope you'll excuse my...

Excellent collection of unusual stories!!!

Profile Image for Amazon Customer
Love this review for my dark fantasy audiobook, Twisted : Overall Performance Story Amazon Customer Sacramento, CA01-06-18 .  Excellent collection of unusual stories!!!  This is a collection of works of varying degrees and lengths. The longer pieces are complete stories with a linear narrative. The shorter pieces feel very much like poetry. All the stories are told from a first person narrative with the exception of one that is just prose back and fourth with the two characters and could easily be a song/duet for two singers. My favorite story was about a woman who is becoming conscious as a sculptor slowly molds her body and head out of clay. It took an unusual inanimate object and breathed...

I have been intrigued with spy stories

Profile Image for Jan
Love this audiobook review: Overall Performance Story Jan 01-04-18   Beautiful Story!  Wow! I was amazed with this beautiful story. I have been intrigued with spy stories ever since I met a real life WWII spy when I was in college. The stories he told were inline with this book. The imagery was so realistic in this book, and I loved the narration. Don Warrick is such a talented performer with his various distinguished voices. I found this book to be a standalone listen and part of a series. I am very impressed with this author and will definitely listen to more books by her. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. My review is not a synopsis of the bo...

Wait for me!


And he says, to himself this time, “Winter is coming. The day is shorter, it seems. And the shorter it is—the more precious each minute.” And I think, No. Not for me. My father says, as if he could hear me, “Maybe not.” He stumbles over some piece of trash, and, having to steady him, I think, Too bad. He is too heavy for me. So is his talk. He says, “You think I do not understand how hard, how painful it must be for you, coming here to a new reality: a home without your mom. I wish you would talk, Ben. Talk to me about it.” And I think, Who the hell wants to do that. He waits for an answer, but after a while he seems to give up. “My God!” he says then, gazing straight ahead. “This place! Thi...

I'm on the verge of acting out


Now I dash eagerly through the long corridor which — to my surprise — has a musty stench. At the far end I spot an arc, which is where a hall opens before me.  The space is enormous. It is lit by two torches: one flickering out of a sconce in the right corner, the other—out of a sconce in the left. Between them lies a flat slab of rock, used as a stage. Above it is a richly draped, raw-silk canopy, decorated by pretty tassels the likes of which I have never seen before. And sheltered in its shadow is a tall figure in a long, royal robe.   There is something about him, something menacing which I cannot begin to put into words. Perhaps it is that thing which he clasps tightly in his fist: an i...

books of 2017...


Happy New Year and welcome to my seventh annual New Year's Day book list. I almost made it to one hundred books in 2017... but not quite. According to Goodreads, I missed the big number by four. My five-star reads were a mix of mystery, historical fiction, and non-fiction and if there's an overarching theme, it must be books with a French connection. I binged on first two Brittany Mysteries ( Original link

Where was the enemy?


I remember how I expected that some of the soldiers in this boat would soon become casualties. Others must have been thinking the same thing. No one talked anymore, not a word was uttered, but you used your eyes. From time to time I would find myself casting a look sideways at a guy, thinking, which one of us is about to die? Is it you or is it me? Then, ramps were dropped along the boat line and one after the other, we jumped into the cold water, which rose up to our chest, our shoulders. For a moment, some disappeared under the turbulent surface. Half-swimming, half-wading, and carrying our overloaded packs and our M-1 semi-automatic rifles, we began to move slowly onto the shore, unsure i...
