My
name is Drew Jones and enjoy writing about mysterious and strange
events. Some of my ideas are derived from my interest in classic
cars, military airfields and the paranormal. I normally write in my
study in Wales with my Labrador dog Monty at my feet, and many ideas
and plots are thought through on our walks together in the woods.
There are lots of ideas buzzing in my head, many involving our sleuth
Theodore Halfpenny, who will appear in Mysterious and Strange Events
Volume 2 – which I hope to start work on soon!
I
have really had fun putting this collection together – so I hope
you have enjoyed them too. Perhaps you have read them on your
commute to work, on a plane as you travel towards your holiday, or as
a quick read at the end of a long day.
As
with all authors, I would be grateful if you would leave a review on
Amazon – it only takes a second, and is always much appreciated.
It
would be very nice to hear from all my readers, so if you would like

Nurse Trudy Genova is making plans to
take her relationship to NYPD detective Ned O’Malley to the next level, when
she lands a gig as medical consultant on a film shoot at the famed Dakota
apartment building in Manhattan, which John Lennon once called home. Then star
Monica Kiley goes missing, a cast member turns up dead, and it appears Trudy
might be next. Meanwhile Ned tackles a mysterious murder case in which the
victim is burned beyond recognition. When his investigations lead him back to
the Dakota, Trudy finds herself wondering: how can she fall in love if she
can’t even survive?
Readers of Death Unscripted, the first
book in the Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery series, will find the same pleasures
in this sequel: fast pacing, engaging characters, twists and turns on the way
to a satisfying close. From the award-winning author of The Nora Tierney
English Mysteries, this second series is a winner. Once again M.K. Graff
reveals her talents in crafting this delightful mix of amateur sleuth and
police procedural.
Part procedural, part cozy, Death at
the Dakota is a well-crafted and highly entertaining mystery

I fell in love — not only with
co-protagonists, Trudy and Ned, the richly detailed and historic setting of The

at the Dakota.

My Review

I read another of The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries, some time ago and enjoyed her feisty kind of approach to murder. For a moment I thought this was the same, but within the first page I realized, to my surprise, that I had stumbled on another of her series.

Trudy is a nurse that has the best job ever. She corrects scripts for movies or TV series and makes sure the medical details are accurate and precise. In this book we find her as the nurse in charge of the main actress Monica. She is with child, but not many people on the set know about it. Trudy’s job is help her stay out of stress, which makes Trudy’s job a challenge as Monica’s life may be in danger.

I enjoyed that she remains with Ned, her Police boyfriend and things are progressing between them. The story line if well done and progresses without a flaw. Characters are well rounded and the story is clean enough. I would say PG13.
I would recommend it, to murder mystery and movie lovers in general.

Snippet:
Brrerrdidididididitt.
Brrerrdidididididdiitt. The noise of a jackhammer filled the spacious room.
“CUT!” a voice yelled.
Actress Monica Kelly let the curtain
drop along with her Jinx persona and crossed her arms in frustration.
I caught my best friend Meg Pitman’s
eye and we held our breath, waiting for an outburst from the director.
Phin Hill-Yorke stomped out from
behind the camera and over to the window, gangly arms and legs flying, frizzy
short hair stuck up around her head as though she’d had a recent encounter with
an electrical socket. “Meg!”
Poor Meg, off to the rescue.
My name is Trudy Genova, RN, and I’m
fortunate to have one of the best jobs a nurse could have. I’m a medical
consultant to one of New York City’s major television studios, the Passion
Broadcasting Junction. PBJ had decided to branch out into television films,
adding to their roster of talk, news programs, and Internet soap operas.
Meg had her first position as
Production Assistant on this movie, and the British director on loan from the
BBC had given her a battering at times all through the shoot. Not that the
rowdy woman singled out Meg. Phin embodied an equal opportunity harasser in a
mostly good-natured sort of way.
“Get your arse down there and sort
those wankers out. They were supposed to hold off on that pavement ’til next
week. Bring that form from the chancellor’s office with you.” Phin yelled above
the noise that continued, patting her pockets for a cigarette. “Please,” she
added as an afterthought.
Meg hurried off with a wave in my
direction, silky blonde hair flying.
“It’s the mayor’s office here, Phin.”
China Barrett corrected Phin from her perch next to me, out of camera range.
Phin’s assistant and I exchanged tiny smiles, co-conspirators for the past six
weeks in the filming of this television movie close to wrapping.
“I don’t care if he’s the Prime
Minister, that racket must stop.” Phin consulted her watch. “Loo breaks all
around while we sort this out, boys and girls.”

There’s a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades

Monday, June 3rd, 2019
An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. 

As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and the fantasies of dreams combined with memories.

There is a hidden treasure in the
grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the
real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s
been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest.
 
Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a
ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no
stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies to searching for this
treasure. 
 
Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected
with this treasure. And so the adventure begins. 
 
Who will find the treasure
first?

My Review:

The Piccadilly Street Series, book two, Mrs. Murray’s Hiding Treasure by Emily Jane Hill Orford is a magical and great read for elementary school children. It is clean, easy to read and entertaining. The characters are well done, interesting and a good mix for children’s books. They consist of: a witch, Penelope; the savior and main character, Mary; her best friend and guardian, Rosie; the brownies; and the Ghost, Mrs. Murray.

In the first book, Mary gets sick due to an enchantment from Penelope and almost dies. While her body fights the sickness, her spirit appears in a magic world. When Mary finally comes back, the witch, her assistant Elizabeth, and a brownie trapped there a century,came back with her. In her quest to find Mrs. Murray’s treasure the witch makes life impossible for Mary and her friend Rosie. The brownies and Mrs. Murray are kept on their toes trying to save the girls.

This is a well done, great read for the whole family and a good addition to anyone’s library.

nocturnal prowl. Satisfied that the house was safe and secure for the night,
after all the musical vibrations that shook the rafters earlier, she took her
place at the end of Mary’s bed and waited patiently for the girl to stir from
her sleep and take note of her presence.
            “What?”
Mary groaned, pulling her eyes open as she emerged from a deep sleep. “What
now?”
            “We
need to talk.” The wispy figure of what was once a very distinguished looking
lady, sat down at the end of Mary’s bed and looked the girl firmly in the eye.
            “Now?”
Mary groaned. “It’s the middle of the night. What time is it?”
            “What
difference does it make? Sit up and let’s talk.” The ghost was not going to
take ‘no’ for an answer. And, it would appear, feigning sleep would not send
her away either. So, Mary pushed herself into a sitting position and rubbed her
eyes again, hoping to eradicate the sleep that threatened to make them close.
            “Where
are the others? Where’s Brunny?” she asked.
            “Asleep
in their little space. And it’s not a natural sleep either. They’re all in the
deepest of sleeps, all except Elizabeth, who slipped out of the house a few
hours ago, just after the lights went out and your family snuggled in for the
night.” Mrs. Murray slid a little closer to Mary. “She’s still not right, that
Elizabeth. She’s good and well shackled by that witch.”

Sounds
of Murder
Pamela
Barnes Acoustic Mysteries Book 1
by
Patricia Rockwell
Genre:
Cozy Mystery
 
SOUNDS
OF MURDER tells a tale of academic intrigue and death. At Grace
University, a small southern college, no one in the Psychology
Department likes Charlotte Clark, so no one is particularly upset
when she is found murdered in the department’s million-dollar
computer lab. But because she discovered the body, Associate
Professor Pamela Barnes feels obligated to find Charlotte’s killer.
When she discovers a recording of the murder that was accidentally
produced during Charlotte’s struggle with the killer, she begins
her own investigation.

 

 

Along
the way, Pamela agonizes with her own conscience as she fights her
growing fear. She attempts to understand her mysterious Department
Chair, keep her curious colleagues informed, placate her protective
husband, and avoid antagonizing a local rube detective who belittles
her efforts–all while she struggles to make sense of the sounds on
the recording.

 

 

As
she gets deeper and deeper into her analysis—trying to connect what
she hears in the recording with sounds from people (and potential
killers) around her–she gets closer and closer to the killer.
However, the killer is observing Pamela’s efforts and resolving to
stop her.

many heard the murder on the radio. Local police are mystified and
ask Psychology professor and acoustics expert Pamela Barnes to assist
them in investigating the crime. Can she determine who shot the
deejay just by listening to the radio station’s audio recording of
the killing? And how does this crime connect to the impending death
of a wealthy carpet manufacturer hundreds of miles away? And the
driven behavior of his conscientious son who hides a very important
secret? Unknown to Pamela, another thread of this strange mystery is
about to unravel. Will she be able to solve it before another victim
is claimed? 

 

 

In

The

colleagues recognize the voices of the unidentified women–and
probable mistresses. Who could they be? This sounds like a case for
Pamela Barnes, local Psychology professor, acoustics expert, and
sometimes amateur sleuth. Can she identify the three women (and
potential murder suspects) from just the sound of their voices on the
voice mail?

 

 

Who
are these mystery women and how did the popular coach manage to
conduct affairs with all of them unbeknownst to everyone around him?
And how did he keep his trio of lovers from finding out about each
other—or did he? It’s a tangled romantic web that ultimately led

 My Review

Michael and Monica Grimm own Grimm’s investigation. The first murder case comes when Preston Charming is killed in the most interesting way. It takes all they have, but the siblings soon find the culprit. What they didn’t expect was the trail of deceit, lies and sadness left by Preston Charming.

The story is interesting, charming and cozy. It has some small, interesting, mentions of fairytale personages but it isn’t a fairytale. It is quite unique and appealing to teens and adults alike. It discusses some adult topics though in a tactful way which attracted me a lot. The book could use a bit of editing to make it shine as much as it deserves. Still, here we find a great read for the entire family. Love the cover by the way, it depicted the story quite well.

I received a copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

D.E.
Dennis grew up in the United States but has spent most of her life
within the pages of a book. A great novel has the ability to
transport you to another time or place and she loves all the worlds
she has had the opportunity to visit.

 

Now, she spends her time
traveling the world and visiting new (and real) places and cultures
as her love of being transported to another place only grew as she
got older.
When D.E. Dennis is not writing, she is reading,
eating cheesecake, and changing countries.

Kay
McLeod
Confession
time, I’m a fantasy addict! For as long as I can remember, I’ve
loved the concept of magical worlds.

I
was the kid with dragons doodled around the edge of her school work,
the one with her head constantly buried in a book. As a teen, I
shunned partying to play Magic the Gathering and DM Dungeons and
Dragons games.

Through
the years, I’ve always made up stories and took characters on
amazing adventures, in the privacy of my own mind. Now I want to
share them with other people.

I
live with my husband and cat in Nottinghamshire in England. When I’m
not writing (or planning something I’m writing) I’m usually
working, reading, playing bass for my church’s worship team,
playing computer games (World of Warcraft, Dragon Age, Pokemon,
Minecraft) or drinking tea.

Mmm,
time to put the kettle on…

An interview with DJ Cooper

 

 

1- Tell us about yourself?

I’m DJ Cooper and I’m very tired! I live in South East England, I’m married and I have two teenagers. I have successfully run my own business from home for the last eighteen years. For the last few years, I’ve juggled that business, family life, and writing.

2- What changes did 2019 bring to your writing?

I got to call myself an award-winning author for Missing Remnants thanks to Indie Authors Monthly magazine. I never expected that to happen, so thank you IAM. This year is the first time in recent years I’ve written something set on contemporary Earth. The town of Bulwark is not real but the setting was small-town America rather than in space or on an alien planet where I usually set a story.

3- Why did you do an anthology? Was it harder or easier than writing a full out novel? What was the hardest part?

Why? Exposure. Pure and simple. The more places you can showcase your work, the more chances you have of enticing one more reader into your world. The story for the anthology was shorter than a novel, so that part was easier. The anthology was challenging because it had a deadline, I don’t usually write to a deadline. I was also writing characters I did not create so I was mindful of building on them in a way that was credible. Another challenge was writing about something in America. I’m English. We wear trousers over here, pants are underwear. Everything had to be written with American terminology in mind.

4- How did you come up with your story?

There were snippets in the original story that sparked something in my imagination. The original contained aspects of Hansel and Gretel. I watched a TV programme called Mr Benn when I was a child. A man walks into a costume shop, tries on a costume, walks through a door and has an adventure. Of course, when I re-watched Mr Benn recently, I found I’d not remembered any of it correctly and I’d written something completely different but that’s not a bad thing.

5- what is the hardest part of being an indie?

Promotion and marketing. The trouble with being an indie is that you have to coordinate everything. Even if you’re passing things like editing and cover design over to a third party, an indie author is the publisher. We are responsible for everything. I wonder how many of us wish we could just write the book and have someone else do the rest for us. I know I do. Marketing is something that can be costly, hit and miss with results and just a completely alien thing for a lot of us to undertake. We have to promote ourselves. I’m sure there are many authors uncomfortable with the concept of waving their arms in the air and screaming I’m over here, look at me.

6- Do you stay with one genre, or jump around?

I can’t even live in this reality, let alone write in one genre! I am happier when I’m not constrained to only one thing. I always have been. Writing flows easier and quicker for me when I am not tied to a single genre. I’ll write science fiction, but it’ll have aspects of horror and humour. I’ll write horror but it’ll also have humour because people crack jokes in real life and the same person can also experience something horrific. I write a mixture of things, but I find that’s more realistic despite some of my more unrealistic settings. Humans are humans whether they’re on this planet or you’ve imagined them in space.

7- Share the process of this collaboration? What inspired you from the original story and how did you marry it to your own work?

The original story has a theme of weird things happening when a pool of green water is present. There were also modern-day characters who appeared to be from different eras. I kept those themes running through my story whilst also creating something that could be read as a standalone work.

8- Would you do another anthology?

Yes, I think collaborating on an anthology is a great way to showcase what an author can do. Every author has a different set of readers they can reach. A collaboration means an author has a greater chance of reaching a wider audience.

9- What trends do you see in indie books?

There’s a lot of them! Both trends and indie books. It’s very difficult to be seen. I’ve seen authors try many things. Free is a massive trend at the moment. I’m hearing more and more authors refusing to give their books away for free because they’ve spent money getting them to the market in the first place. Competition is fierce and always will be. I don’t think the trend of hard work will ever change.

10- What makes your books stand out from the sea of indie authors out there?

I’m not unique, but I have a relatable author’s voice. I have a flair for humour and an ability to write a scene in a way that doesn’t drag. I zone out of books I read that interrupt the flow of action with passages of the description which don’t seem to move the story on. So, I like to avoid writing the things that bore me as a reader. We all have different preferences and that’s why there is potential for every decent author to find the readers who appreciate their work.

A Scientist’s Remorse…This is the REAL story, one that should have never been told

Saturday, March 30th, 2019
A Scientist’s Remorse
Prequel to Memories of Chronosalis
by Ceara Comeau
Genre: Science Fantasy
 
Darmentraea
became a prison, Galaseya a thriving Utopia; Diraetus finally found
peace, and Heirsha provided healing to all. Amber and her friends had
adjusted to their new roles in life when an unexpected surprise
appeared on Heirsha–A secret truth. One that could shed light on the
mysteries surrounding the immortal families.

 

 

Why
so much bitterness? What happened between Jermiar and Huntinylar?
What secrets does Marsacor conceal behind his coarse exterior? Who is
the mysterious family member that no one seems to want to talk about?
And why were both families plagued by constant tragedy? One
answer–Khyra Crawford.

 

 

Two
thousand years before Amber’s story began, Khyra was a brilliant
young environmental scientist who wanted her world to be clean from
man’s pollution. Her father, a world-renowned chemist, had an idea of
his own and created a devastating chemical that nearly exterminated
all of mankind. She fought hard to repair the damages her father
created. Not to mention take back her life from the one that his
transgressions against humanity made for her. But in doing so, she
found herself dragged into a web of lies, danger, and otherworldly
chaos, and a destiny that wasn’t hers to alter.

 

 

This
is the REAL story, one that should have never been told.

IS NOT A STAND ALONE BOOK! MUST BE READ AFTER MEMORIES OF
CHRONOSALIS!**

Memories
of Chronosalis
by
Ceara Comeau
 
It’s
one thing to read about heroes saving worlds in far off galaxies,
but to become one is an entirely different story. Sixteen-year-old
Amber Oak wanted nothing more than to stay in her own world of music
and solitude. But the inhabitants of Galaseya, a Utopian planet
rooted in the past, had other ideas in mind. According to them, only
she wielded the power to stop the dark forces threatening their home.
At first, Amber sympathized with the planet, but saw no reason to
involve herself in the affairs of something outside her world. But
the stakes have risen when she discovers that Galaseya is not only
the world that has been invading her dreams, but also the place her
estranged family originated from. With this new knowledge, questions
began to surface and secrets of Amber’s life come to light causing
her to second guess everything she knows.

I’ve
been writing stories since I can remember. Stories, I thought, were
just for children my age and I did not think they would go far. At
fifteen years old, I was proven wrong. My parents took a look at my
stories and saw something in them that I could not see. They saw the
potential of a good book, or two! 

 

 

With
my Dad as the editor and my Mom doing the formatting, we
self-published these books. I did not think anyone, other than my
family, would want to read the ramblings of a young teenager. When we
published “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 1” and “Adventures
of the Young and Curious,” I was fifteen years old, then the
unexpected happened. People would write to me and they told me how
much they loved my books.

 

 

During
the time, when I was seventeen, I stopped writing. I lost faith in
myself and my ability to write. But , my mom suggested that we
publish my third book, for it had been sitting on the shelf for about
two years. She thought it would be good to get it out there, before I
started college. I did not see what harm it could do, so my third
book, “Amber Oak Mysteries Volume 2” was published. In 2012
I published “Amber Oak and the Missing Links”. I went on to
publish “Amber Oak and the Master of Illusions”. In 2015 I
published something different call “The Lost Journal of Erika
Traynor”. These is currently available on lulu.com, amazon.com
and barnesandnoble.com.

 

 

Recently
I realized I needed to go back and redo the original Amber Oak
Mystery series. It had potential, but I knew I could do better. It
will be different than the originals as it focuses more on science
fiction and fantasy rather than mystery. The title of the book is
“Memories of Chronosalis”.

Judy
Nichols lives in Wilmington, North Carolina, but she is by no means a
“Southern writer.” Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in
the nearby town of Batavia, she still is a no-nonsense midwesterner.
Although she does find true southerners quite charming.

 

 

Judy
holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Kent State University.
She has been a newspaper reporter, a teacher, a temporary office
worker, a customer service representative, a stay-at-home mom, a
volunteer, and a proud organizer of the now defunct Cape Fear Crime
Festival mystery writers’ conference.

 

 

Judy
started her first novel “Caviar Dreams” while her daughter
was napping one day. Five years later it was finished. The biggest
challenge arrived once her daughter stopped taking naps and
eventually lost interest in watching the “Toy Story”
video.

 

 

Since
then she has gone on to write several more books, including the Ian
Dodge Mysteries inspired by her UK born husband Nigel. Ian Dodge is a
persnickety private investigator, living in coastal North Carolina,
who refuses to be assimilated and instead hangs on to every shred of
his Britishness.

 

 

Now
that her daughter is grown up and gone, she spends lots of quality
time with her husband and Bailey the Wonder Dog. Also, reading and
writing good books.
