Walking With Elephants by Karen S. Bell Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Suze Hall is at a crossroads. Her nemesis at work, Wanda, has been
promoted and now will be her boss. Her husband, Bob, is leaving her
and the three kids for a six-month sabbatical down under. To top it
off, her best friend, Marcia, is missing in action—playing footsie
with some new boyfriend!
Adding to this disaster stew, David, the gorgeous hunk who broke her
young-girl’s heart has coincidentally popped back into her life and
has something she desperately needs to keep her job.
Walking with Elephants, a lighthearted slice-of- life story, brings to the
table the serious work/family issues facing women today. It explores
the modern dichotomy of a workplace that is filled with homemakers
who still must cook, clean, carpool on nights and weekends, shop for
prom dresses, and “create” the holidays—such as Suze. But
it also is filled with women who have the same drive as men, have no
family responsibilities, and will do what ever it takes to get ahead.
So step into the shoes of Suze Hall and commiserate over workplace
politics, titillate your sexual fantasies, ride the wave of a working
mother, and fall-down laughing.
I get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to
choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right
cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this
way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire
for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind.
Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching
story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am
and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the
craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while
driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient
of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It’s a mystery this
business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.

A SERIES OF MOMENTS by M.L. Broome

 

From the Moment We Met
A Series of Moments Book 1
by M.L. Broome
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sometimes you’re interested. Sometimes you can’t be bothered. Sometimes
love doesn’t give you a choice. In Jacob and Lilly’s case, love
isn’t letting either of them go.
Jacob Edmonton has a plan for his life, but it doesn’t include love. He
was Hollywood’s quintessential golden boy—until a
flash-in-the-pan fling with a high-profile singer upended his
world—and his reputation. Now he’s nursing more than a wounded
ego and his only goal is to repair the damage.
But his return to superstardom is shot to hell when his sister winds up
undergoing emergency surgery. There he meets Lilly Staver, a
straight-shooting nurse who’s as brutally honest as she is
beautiful. She sees through his suave façade and he wants to hate
her until he realizes he can’t resist her.
Lilly knows all about men like Jacob Edmonton—if you’ve seen one
pretentious, egocentric celebrity—you’ve seen them all. She’s
unimpressed with his Hollywood pedigree and his belief that love is
reserved solely for maniacs. So why can’t she stop thinking about
him? Her mind tells her to run as fast as she can from Jacob…but
her heart isn’t listening.
Love as they know it just took a hairpin turn into uncharted territory,
but when Jacob’s former girlfriend shows up with an opportunity to
salvage his career, will he choose the life he knows or the love he
never knew existed?
This is the first of three books in ‘A Series of Moments’, chronicling the
timeless and heart-wrenching love story of Jacob Edmonton & Lilly
Staver.
Unguarded Moments
A Series of Moments Book 2
From the Moment We Met”, the first book in the romantic saga, A Series
of Moments, introduced us to Jacob Edmonton and Lilly Staver, and a
love neither believed possible. But life is all about the choices you
carry with you and those you leave behind. Love is no different.
Now, in “Unguarded Moments”, Jacob realizes that his actions have
consequences, and his heart is paying the price.
Jacob made a choice. Now, in “Unguarded Moments”, he realizes he’s
made the wrong one. The lights of Hollywood do shine, but not nearly
as bright as the light of love. He’s ready to fight tooth and nail to
bring Lilly back into his life but is it too late to undo the damage?
Lilly saw the writing on the wall, but she chose to follow her heart
instead. Her foolish, naïve heart. She’s learned her lesson many
times over—loving Jacob was a bad idea in every sense of the word.
She vows to never make the same mistake again…but can she resist
the one man who still holds all the pieces of her shattered soul? She
gave him her love, but instead of loving her back—he watched her
walk away.
Thousands of kilometers lie between them now, but the distance isn’t Jacob’s
toughest hurdle. It will be far more difficult to convince Lilly that
loving him wasn’t the gravest mistake she’s ever made.
The heart wants what the heart wants—but can Lilly believe in Jacob
again, or will her fears end any chance of their reconciliation?
This is the second of three books in ‘A Series of Moments’, chronicling
the timeless and heart-wrenching love story of Jacob Edmonton &
Lilly Staver
Beautifully Broken Moments
A Series of Moments Book 3
A Series of Moments follows the journey of Jacob
Edmonton, a world-famous actor, and Lilly Staver, the nurse who saved
him from himself. “Beautifully Broken Moments” is the
stunning conclusion in the trilogy, but after all the upheaval, will
Jacob and Lilly ever find their Happily Ever After?
All it takes is a moment—one moment can change the course of your
life—and love.
With a single statement during a press conference, Jacob upended his
world, destroying his happiness and heart in the process. When his
ex-girlfriend Victoria claimed she was not only engaged to the acting
legend but also expecting his child, Jacob went along with the
charade. But his actions were not to salvage his reputation or
career; they were to protect the only thing that mattered—his real
fiancée, Lilly. To save her from the backlash of Victoria’s
jealousy and rage, Jacob let go of the only woman he had ever loved.
As the truth behind the events of the last several months shifts into
sharp focus, Jacob is left with one final choice—move on without
Lilly or fight with everything in his being to reunite with the love
of his life. For Jacob, it’s the easiest decision he’s ever made.
Lilly watched her dreams crumble on international television when Jacob
claimed she was ‘a brief fling’; too bad her heart never received
the memo. Devastated by his most recent betrayal, she plans to flee
England and Jacob forever, intent on escaping their tempestuous
romance, until she learns the reality behind Jacob’s actions.
Just as their plans start falling back into place, the wheel of life doles
out a tragedy that will test them on every level. Is Jacob’s love
enough to carry them through or is the trail of heartache too
difficult for Lilly to traverse again?
Life is a series of adventures, waiting to be explored.
That’s how I look at life, the greatest adventure we will ever experience.
My name is Julie Soper and I write under the pen name M.L. Broome
(the M.L. stands for Mezza Luna). The name came to me in a dream,
which is how many of my story ideas also appear.
My motto is that I’m a believer in love and a lover of life, even when
life isn’t being kind or pretty. I’ve seen the darker side of human
suffering through my years as an ICU nurse and nurse educator, but in
those dark days, I also witnessed the depths of strength present in
everyone. We are extraordinary beings when we allow ourselves the
freedom to dream.
I’ve always created stories, with most remaining locked in the vault of my
mind. But the story of Jacob and Lilly wasn’t satisfied being
relegated to the confines of my head, and their tale of love found
and lost was birthed into the world.
I hope you enjoy their love story. I know I do. I love these
characters, even when their actions drive me to the brink of
madness.
Love, light, and magic.

Chutes and Ladder
A Silicon Valley Mystery Book 2
by Marc Jedel
Genre: Cozy Mystery
When a camping trip uncovers a murder, this amateur sleuth is stuck
putting out the fire …
Marty Golden enjoys time with his nieces, but he wanted to spend the
weekend with his new girlfriend — not chaperone a Girl Scout
camping trip. Once he stumbles upon the corpse of a friend in the
woods, the outdoors adventure becomes an open-air disaster. When the
police label it an accidental death, the meticulous Marty vows to
investigate the murder. After all, it’s poor manners to let your
friend’s death go unsolved.
On the hunt for clues the cops ignored, Marty uncovers a disturbing
connection to himself. And as he digs deeper, a misbehaving pup, a
kooky cousin, and a maniacal ninja put his survival skills to the test.
Will Marty unravel the mystery before the killer, or his imagination,
gets to him?
Chutes and Ladder is
the side-splitting second novel in the Silicon Valley cozy mystery
series. If you like quirky sleuths, wacky side characters, and

Mysterious attacks. Mischievous nieces. Can
a clueless uncle catch a tech-savvy killer … and be home before
bedtime?
When a freak accident hospitalizes Marty
Golden’s sister and condemns him to
babysitter duty, he thinks it’s just another case of hardwired bad
luck in Silicon Valley.
Until a suspicious murder suggests the mishap was no mere
coincidence. Something must be done.
Too bad this quirky, fashion-backward
uncle isn’t exactly hero material.
Convinced his sister is in mortal danger, this
amateur sleuth follows clues to an
oddball array of suspects. Armed with nothing but an eye for detail
and powers of self-delusion, Marty
tangles with gangsters, a cantankerous school secretary, and a
perplexing woman he can’t help but fall for. Glitches in his
investigation seem like a piece of cake compared to dinner-prep and
bedtime stories with his two precocious, pre-teen nieces.
Can Marty catch the culprit, save his sister, and get his life back in
order before he gets unplugged?
Uncle and Ants is the first novel in
a refreshingly modern mystery series set in Silicon Valley. If you

Marc Jedel writes humorous murder mysteries. In his high-tech marketing
roles, he’s also written fiction. These are just called emails, ads,
and marketing collateral.
In his family, Marc was born first — a fact his sister never lets him
forget, no matter what milestone age she hits. For most of Marc’s
life, he’s been inventing stories. Some, especially when he was
young, involved his sister as the villain. As his sister’s brother
for her entire life, he feels highly qualified to tell tales of the
evolving, quirky sibling relationship in the Silicon Valley Mystery
series.
Family and friends would tell you that the protagonist in his stories, Marty
Golden, isn’t much of a stretch of the imagination for Marc, but he
proudly resembles that remark.
Like Marty, Marc lives in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley, where he
writes within earshot of the doppler effect of the local ice cream
truck. Unlike Marty, Marc has a wonderful wife and a neurotic but
sweet, small dog, who much prefers the walks resulting from writer’s
block than his writing.

The Dung Beetles of Liberia by Daniel V. Meier Jr. Genre: Adventure, Historical Fiction

Based on the remarkable true account of a young American who landed in
Liberia in 1961.
Ken Verrier is not happy, nor at peace. He is experiencing the turbulence
of Ishmael and the guilt of his brother’s death. His sudden decision
to drop out of college and deal with his demons shocks his family,
his friends, and especially his girlfriend, soon to have been his
fiancee. His destination: Liberia – The richest country in Africa
both in monetary wealth and in natural resources.
Nothing could have prepared Ken for the experiences he was about to live
through. He quickly realizes that he has arrived in a place where he
understands very little of what is considered normal, where the
dignity of life has little meaning, and where he can trust no one.
Flying into the interior bush as a transport pilot, Ken learns quickly. He
witnesses first-hand the disparate lives of the Liberian “Country
People” and the “Congo People” also known as
Americo-Liberians. These descendants of President Monroe’s American
Colonization Policy that sent freed slaves back to Africa in the
1800’s have set up a strict hierarchical society not unlike the
antebellum South.
Author Dan Meier describes Ken’s many escapades, spanning from horrifying to
whimsical, with engaging and fast-moving narrative that ultimately
describe a society upon which the wealthy are feeding and in which
the poor are being buried.
It’s a novel that will stay will you long after the last word has been
read.

1) What inspired the book?

I used to write a lot of silly stories when I was 12 years old living in Kenya. Then I discovered soccer and became really good at it. I stopped writing. Later in life I received a soccer scholarship in America and it was only after college when I was struggling with life that I started writing again. Writing came as a way of channeling my frustrations and failures. Little did I know that I was not only telling my story, but also the story of my generation.


2) How long did it take you to write the book?

It took a whole year to write the book. I was working two jobs in America and every day after work I would come home tired. I only had four hours to sleep approximately but I could not sleep without writing. And sometimes it was only a word or a sentence, but it came from a deep place within.


3)When did you realize you were a writer/Author?

It never hit me that I was a writer. I knew I loved to write, but Titles like Author or Writer scared me. When my book Whisper in the Jungle was finally published by Storymoja Publishers in Kenya, and I found myself doing interviews on camera, I finally believed. 


4) Is Swahili your native language? Why do you write in English?

Swahili is Kenya’s national language and Kikuyu is my native language. Kenya was colonized by the Colonial British and English was the language used in work places and by the missionaries. A lot of people ask me why I write in English. As children in Kenya we were strictly forbidden from speaking our mother tongue in schools and forced to speak English to help us navigate the world ahead. Those students who didn’t speak English were beaten. And because of this I can speak English better than my native language. This is a very controversial subject in Kenya, with many an author pushing for decolonizing our minds to going back to teaching our children both English and the Native language, and emphasizing that none is superior to the other.



5) Anything else you wish to add?

If you have a passion out there. Never give up on it because it’s God’s gift to you. Find a job to pay the bills but never give up on that which makes you most happy.

Robert in his own words…

I, Robert Mwangi, was born in Nyeri under the hills of Mt. Kenya, but I grew up in Nairobi. I started writing at the age of 12 and up until now I have a folder with short stories that I wrote when I was a child. The English is not so good but the ideas are there, born of all the youthful novels that I used to read like Hardy Boys and Famous Five. From the comfort of our home in Kenya, these books took me oceans away to places I could only imagine: From the village under the hills of Mt. Kenya to the Statue of Liberty in New York, from the Eiffel Tower in France to the Arabian desert. 

I stopped writing after I joined Ofafa Jericho High School. Our school was the number one school in soccer in the whole country and I joined the team. After high school I played for KCB Soccer team in the Kenya Premier League competing against giant teams like Gor Mahia and Tusker FC. In 2002, I received my first call to play for the Kenya National Soccer Team, The Harambee Stars, but it was in the same year that I was awarded a soccer scholarship to study accounting in America.
Life in America was hard as I will explain in the second novel, and I struggled with two jobs and very little sleep. In 2008 I came across Barrack Obama on TV and was inspired by his many great speeches. They triggered something inside me and suddenly, just like that, I was writing again.
I wrote for one year without knowing what I was writing about. It felt good to be that kid again. Writing had always been inside me. After one year, I stopped and I had 600 hundred pages and I had no clue what I had been writing about
