  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1521840962
  • ISBN-13: 978-1521840962

My Rating:  ♥♥♥♥♥

My Review: 

Wow! What a story. Once again John Nicholl takes the deep pain of a victim and turns it on its ear. This was Rebecca’s story. The story of a lost innocence and the damage that follows year after year until it creates a monster. Rebecca is juggling, and not quite as successfully as is needed. Her story becomes disturbing. Unable to even interact with her parents after a terrible and unresolved event, Rebecca is broken.

I love Detective Inspector Gareth Gravel. His mind is quick and he is out of shape but I personally find him charming. Even when he is grinding a cigar beneath his heel. I found Detective Inspector Gareth Gravel to be such a visual character. He has been suffering from PTSD…

Shade’s Shadow

FELIX THE FOX MYSTERIES

Shades-Shadow-Cover

This is a special story. It’s the darkest story I’ve written to date. I’ve been struggling to complete it for a while. Then Nikki, the organiser of UnDead Prom, contacted me about sponsoring the event, and I knew that this would be just perfect.

So here you have it. Felix’s darkest and most bizarre case, published – very appropriately – on Halloween.

And, since the it was commissioned by the UnDead Prom, I include here also the opening words of the faculty’s History professor (me again) to the students…

Guests of the UnDead Prom share that quintessential human interest with what lies behind the veil of life. It might not surprise them that humans throughout the ages have come up with a myriad of descriptions, explanations, and stories about what happens to those who cross the threshold — and those who might cross back.

For tonight’s lesson, we will study…

KentuckyAuthors!BannerLeigh Holland’s Interview with Sojourner McConnell

Today I’m delighted to host the author of “Who’s That in The Cat Pajamas?”, Sojourner McConnell, at my author spotlight. Thanks for being here!

Leigh: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am delighted to talk to you and share about myself and my work. I am a writer, and I am also a mother of 3 grown children and grandmother of 13 ranging in age from 16 to one year.  I am also the dog mom to Beau. He is my Australian Shepherd and my little time keeper.

Leigh: Why did you decide to write children’s…

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM SHERRIE 

Mom and DadHappy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.  Both of my parents have been gone since 1993, and I miss them dearly. But in honor of this day, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell a dad story.

My dad was an enthusiastic educator, so he was slightly reserve in his academic ways. When my saintly mother was bargain shopping for an appropriate gift for Father’s Day, she hit pay dirt on half a dozen ball caps. As you can see from the photo, dad was a hat man. He could wear them when mowing the lawn or harvesting our massive vegetable garden. (Man, I miss those fresh tomatoes!).

The excitement as dad unwrapped his box o’ hats was palpable in the air. But when he tried one on, my sister and I rolled on the floor laughing. Once the guffaws subsided and…
