MICHELLE ABBOTT

It’s high time my blog was turned on to the power of love and romance (with just a hint of lubricity here and there to spice things up): so I am delighted today to welcome MICHELLE ABBOTT to these pages. A fellow Brit, Michelle is a skilled purveyor of tales in the Romance genre, having dedicated her writing career to date to bringing as much love into as many lives as possible. I’ve been spending a lot of time in Fairyland of late, and confess to not having learned much as yet about the kind of men who turn her...

Before Brian O’Hare retired, he was Assistant Director of the Southern Regional College in Northern Ireland.

He is married with three children, ten grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He plays golf three times a week off a ten handicap and does a lot of voluntary work. Any writing he did in his professional life was academic – very much restricted to a very specific readership. Several articles in educational journals were followed by a number of...

It is with great pleasure that I welcome acclaimed author MAURICE G MILLER to my BlogSpot. I have recently downloaded The Budapest Experiment on the strength of its opening paragraphs.

I thought I would take this opportunity to acquaint you with some of the main characters that you will encounter when reading The Budapest Experiment. I hope you find them as interesting as...

SHERILYN POWERS

I’m delighted to be bringing Sherilyn Powers to your particular attention because she is a very interesting and supportive person. She has been a writer ever since she learned to write, and certainly throughout adulthood: poetry, novels, blogs and articles; but when it comes to communicating with and inspiring others, she doesn’t just confine herself to the written word. She is a facilitator and enabler: working with company VPs and CEOs, office staff and field workers on a variety of health topics and safety issues. Her interest in health and body work began many years ago. It was sparked by...

“Finding Liam” CHERYL PHIPPS

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this heartwarming tale of a childless couple – good people – getting the child they deserved.  Prossers Bay is the small town equivalent of the way the world should be: full of kind, hard-working people ready to help out anyone who has fallen on hard times, especially a defenceless and exceptionally polite little boy whose mother had left him in what she hoped was a safe place while she tried to deal with the danger presented by a rotten, cowardly bully.  This short book can be easily and enjoyably read at one...

“The Guardian’s Prophecy” MITZI FLYTE

This is a very well written book by a knowledgeable author (history, sociology, psychology) with educated, highly qualified protagonists helping the reader suspend their disbelief while a legend comes to life. The trick in such instances is “gradualism” – the building of the picture using convincing detail while gradually weaving in those strands of the story that would otherwise be hard to swallow.  Mitzi Flyte handles it brilliantly: you know you’re in safe hands from the first few chapters and feel yourself relaxing into a gripping tale being expertly spun. Zoologist Dr Kate Riley is “a workaholic with a highly...

“Star Bridge” JEANNE FOGUTH

This is a fascinating tale of colliding cultures, contrasting values and the struggle for mutual understanding in the pursuit of peace and happiness.  Jeanne Foguth has created a very interesting blend of science fiction and fantasy in which to explore some timeless human issues and dilemmas. Warrior Colonel Larwin Atano crash-lands on an apparently lifeless planetoid.  He is accompanied by an android (model GEA-4) made in the likeness of a small human female with silver hair and a voice “as sensuous as a wet dream.” Amazed to find himself still alive, he finds there is something on this planetoid that...

“Line of Descent” JAMES DERRY

This is a truly excellent work, in my opinion to be ranked with the best in modern fiction. Given the plethora of e-books – fresh titles appearing in their thousands every day – searching for real quality among them can sometimes seem like a hopeless task; so here at least is a sound piece of advice: read ‘Line of Descent’ by James Derry. It is a truly excellent work, in my opinion to be ranked with the best in modern fiction. The author has summarised the plotline in the book description above, so there is no need for me to...
