Interesting Addition to a Familiar Tale


Just found this great review by Top 100 reviewer Dee Arr for my novella, A Favorite Son : 5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Addition to a Familiar Tale By Dee Arr Top Contributor: Harry Potter TOP 100 REVIEWER on May 13, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition | Verified Purchase This is a variation of a Bible story, fleshed out and with full rein given to various degrees of motivation. Author Uvi Poznansky tells the story of Jacob and Esau in a modern setting, allowing her to bring a new awareness to the thoughts and reasoning of Jacob (Yankle in Ms. Poznansky’s tale). Diving into the inner workings of a character’s mind is one of the author’s strengths. The story is a mixture of the story we are familiar...

New Facebook Group


I’ve created a fan group on Facebook. I know, I’m a bit behind the times on this. I confess, Facebook scares the crap out of me. Over the years, it’s been the source of a great deal of anxiety. On the other hand, my writing cave is awfully lonely. I’ve decided to make more of an effort to socialize. So, if you’re interested, you can find the group here . It’ll mostly be dog pictures and random conversations, leaning toward the positive side of life — I’m allergic to drama and sick to death of negativity. There will also be occasional giveaways, including ARCs of all new releases. Hope to see you there! The post New Facebook Group appeared first on Marie Sexton . Original link

Tech-Savvy Ghosts?

mourning-108781_1280
This year’s Mother’s Day was not the most festive I’ve experienced. I spent the day at the funeral of a friend of the family. This incredible lady (we’ll call her Sally), who was stolen away from us at ridiculously young age from a sudden illness, has touched the lives of hundreds, if not thousands in her short, fifty-one years. Her younger brother (we’ll call him Will) and I are particularly close. Will and I met for the first time about ten years ago and in that moment had a “Hey, wow, there you are!” kind of weird recognition. A communion of spirits. Yesterday, we followed Will and Sally’s family, proceeding in a long line of vehicles to the tiny cemetery very near, ironically, to the tow...

In Cairo with OSS 117

s-l300
Strangely enough, secret agent 117 was born four years before secret agent 007. It was 1949 and French writer Jean Bruce published Tu parles d’une ingénue, the first of the eighty-eight novels he’d write featuring agent OSS 117 before dying an untimely death in 1963. At this point, his wife Josette took over, penning another 143 volumes in the series between 1963 and 1985. At that point, Josette’s daughter Martine took over, and wrote the remaining 23 books in the series, between 1987 and 1992. Through a total of 254 novels, Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath, an American of French descent, born in Louisiana, goes from working for the Office of Strategic Services to the CIA and finally the NSC, bas...

The kids are growing up…


I knew it was coming. As the days passed, and the kids grew older, I knew this time was coming. One day, I would no longer be required to attend parties or school events. It starts in elementary school. In the beginning, you go with your kid to birthday parties and school activities. You relish going on field trips. Your child smiles when he sees you at the school. Or she gladly holds your hand as you walk through the zoo. But then about second or third grade, you begin to just drop your child off at birthday parties. No longer do you have to stand awkwardly with the other parents as you watch the party games. Or if you are lucky you know some of the other parents and your time passes quickl...
