Listening to My Characters by Kat Martin

No question, writing dialogue in a novel can be tricky.  Each character has a unique voice distinct from the others in the book. Since I’ve never been particularly good at description, letting the characters tell the story is my favorite way to craft a novel. Of course there has to be narration, ways to move […]

2nd Day of Cheryl Holt’s JILTED BRIDES Trilogy and Giveaway!

My new series is coming September 20th, 2018.  I’m calling it my “Jilted Brides” trilogy.  For the past few years, I’ve been writing linked series, where I have a linking theme that runs through all of the novels, and the common thread resolves at the end of the final book.  It’s a fun way for […]

Cheryl Holt’s JILTED BRIDES Trilogy and Giveaway!

For the past few years, I’ve been writing linked series, where there is a common theme that runs through all the books.  The theme resolves at the end of the final novel.  Over the years, I would always hear from readers that—when they finished one of my novels—they wished it hadn’t ended.  With the new […]

5 Stars UNQUIET SPIRITS by Bonnie MacBird

Posted  October 7, 2017  by  Ivy Truitt

When it comes to Sherlock Holmes pastiches, my thoughts often run contrary to others.  I thoroughly enjoyed Michael Kurland’s books featuring Moriarty, Quinn Fawcett’s series featuring Mycroft Holmes, Anthony Horowitz’s “Moriarty”, and Sherry Thomas’ “Lady Sherlock “ series. Laurie R. King’s writing is good, and I read several, but just couldn’t go there. There are […]

4 Star Review: Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

Posted  May 27, 2010  by  Teresa Spreckelmeyer

I believe something similar to what a certain petite blonde vampire slayer once said “Dawns in trouble…must be Tuesday” could be applied as well to the heroine of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series of books which inspired the critically acclaimed HBO original series True Blood. In the latest installment out this month, DEAD IN THE […]

5 Star Review: Warrior Mother by Sheila K. Collins, PhD

Posted  September 13, 2013  by  Donna McBroom-Theriot

The memoir, WARRIOR MOTHER by Sheila Collins, is a story about using rituals to heal. However, in all honesty, that part of the book did not resonate with me, and I found myself skimming over those parts. Ironically, it was the story of her daughter’s Christian faith that struck a deep chord within me. While Sheila was a liberal thinker […]

5 Star Review: What Not to Bare by Megan Frampton

Posted  October 17, 2013  by  Teresa Spreckelmeyer

Simply DELICIOUS! WHAT NOT TO BARE by Megan Frampton is a scrumptious treat, filled with sexy humor and characters as bold as Lady Charlotte’s wardrobe. Labeled “the Abomination” by fashion mad society for her unique and unorthodox choices in wardrobe, Charlotte is only steps away from becoming a confirmed spinster, but unlike her marriage-mad mother, Charlotte […]

Kudos to Ms. Hawkins for her vision and execution of the Lords of Vice series. The characters she has created will remain amongst my favorites and so will their stories.
