Inspiration For A Painting by Carolyn Ward-Daniels.

Wednesday Mar 30, 2022

We have an eye-opening interview with Richard John Thornton, author of At Hell's Gate, this time for your listening pleasure. April sounded shocking through some of it, but that's laryngitis for you. She's on the mend now, though, slowly but surely. 
This is the write up of Richard's book from Amazon: 
"Dedicated family man Curt Osbourne believes a diversion from the rigours of everyday routine will do him the world of good when he receives an invitation to a colleague’s 40th birthday celebration. A break in Prague for six working class lads promises a weekend to remember. Prior to the trip, the anticipation is at fever pitch and the banter and beer are in reliably plentiful flow. On arrival, the city unveils its exotic secrets to the visitors as they willingly immerse themselves in the unfamiliar environment. The mood is vibrant and laughter abounds. Yet unbeknown to those closest to him, Curt quickly lives to regret that his journey into unknown territory had ever begun..."

Monday Feb 28, 2022

We have a wonderful, enlightening interview with Rebecca L Marsh, author of Remember the Butterfly in this episode for your listening pleasure. 
This book was released just this month, so we got to read this one nice and early. This is the write up on Amazon: 
"What if you had to give up what you treasured most?
Something unexpected changes the course of Jillian’s life. After witnessing her sister’s murder, she’s been tormented by survivor’s guilt. Her desperate longing for a child compounds her grief, while endless fertility treatments weigh down her soul.
Just when hope seems beyond her grasp, her dream of motherhood comes true. All Jillian’s pain is washed away and joy fills her heart.
But when someone shows up threatening to take it all away, Jillian must chose between holding on to her newfound happiness or giving it all up for the sake of someone she loves.
Remember the Butterfly is a heartfelt and emotional story about love and sacrifice that will take you on an emotional journey."
Download and listen to this author interview. We just know you'll be tempted to go read this yourself.
