She must become the weapon that will take the Mafia down once and for all

Friday, October 20th, 2017
“Cindy M. Hogan is a bestselling author of young adult suspense and action and adventure novels that always have a dash of clean romance. After her first series, The Watched Series, skyrocketed her to number one, she hasn’t let up and now has over 20 novels to her name.
She’s always on the move and never sits down to write, instead she walks
and talks into a recorder and lets her computer transcribe her words. If she
isn’t writing or editing, she’s teaching, gardening or doing crafts. You’ll always find her listening to an audiobook while working in her park-like yard, cooking or baking something delicious. She dreams to someday have a German
style bakery with a cute to-go window for Gelato.
Cindy loves to create and her most prized creation is her two amazing daughters, and she secretly wishes they were teenagers again. She loves to be home, but her husband is a die-hard traveler and takes her family around the world. During her travels, she finds an endless supply of story ideas, characters and settings, walking away with either a suntan or jetlag.
Her contagious laughter is the cure to almost anything. To read a novel of hers is to see a piece of Cindy, as she puts her all into every novel she writes.

The Mafia has a stranglehold on
everything Kate loves, and Kate is determined to end it. First they claimed her father, then destroyed her mother. The guy Kate cares for most is as much a prisoner as the family who raised her. And now, after all she’s lost, the Mafia wants to recruit her. But Kate has had enough. As long as the Mafia exists, she and her loved ones will live and die in fear, cowering under a dark,
all-encompassing power. That leaves Kate with little choice. With the help of
her Mafia-boss grandmother and a desperate wish for freedom, Kate must risk everyone she loves—and everything she is—to become the weapon that will take the Mafia down once and for all. If you like thought provoking, action-filled novels, you will love the latest action/adventure hit Kate Empowered by Cindy M. Hogan. Buy Kate Empowered to continue the addicting Code of Silence Series and
enter the chilling and gripping world of the Mafia

Snippet:
Kate continued to look at herself in the mirror, shifting uncomfortably
as the two women talked. The whole situation reminded her too much of training
with Veronica for Marconi’s club. Kate had been terrible at it, at least in the
beginning, though she had started catching on near the end. There wouldn’t be
time to acclimate this time. She’d be expected to perform right from the
get-go. A single mistake would get her killed and then what good was everything
she’d done? She would expose the whole family and get a lot of other people
killed too. She’d been a fool to think she could do this. Some people were made
to be heroic, like her grandma, Bruno, Pascal, Abramo, and Mario—but not her.
But she couldn’t totally give up. She had to see justice done. Maybe there was
a way she could help behind the scenes. Help someone else be the hero.

Patty Wiseman talks about her series “Velvet Shoe Collection”

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Patty, what makes you passionate about writing?

As a small child, stories of my colorful family intrigued me. I would sit and listen to the tales the adults spun while I hid under the stairwell in my grandmother’s house. As I grew older, I wanted to spin stories, too, and fell in love with the reaction I generated from my mythical lore. I don’t write to make a statement, I write to surprise, to intrigue, and to fuel curiosity.

Do you have a writing routine?

I do have a routine. Early on, I got caught up in all the social media and realized it was eating up so much time! (more…)
