I
am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist–words are my
palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the
darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes,
villains, and everything in between. I’m also a freelance writer, a
book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend
hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the
pages of fantasy novels.

 

 


Fantasy
provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane
problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It
transcends age, gender, religion,race, or lifestyle–it is our way of
believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and
discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand
new way. Fiction at its very best!

Can love conquer all? . . .
All Special Forces sergeant Jason Dexter ever

Although the elder Dexter has yet to make his peace with his son’s
decision, Jason has no regrets. Still, he has mixed feelings about
returning to his upstate New York town. But his perspective changes
at a friend’s wedding, where he meets a lovely, gifted musician.
Now Jason has a new mission: to get to know Aria Greco better.
The daughter of Jason’s commanding officer,
Aria dreams of becoming a concert pianist. Meeting the handsome
soldier transforms both their lives. But Aria’s ambition, Jason’s
unresolved family conflicts, and jealousy over rivals on both sides
soon threatens their blossoming relationship. As Jason prepares for a
dangerous deployment, will the mounting tensions tear them apart, or
is their love—and the faith they share—powerful enough to heal
the past and embrace the future?

Irene Onorato was born and raised in the
Bronx, New York. Her father, a first-generation American whose
parents were born in Italy, was an Army veteran who had served with
the 178th combat engineers during WWII. He told numerous stories of
battles, hardships, tragedies and triumphs. The glimpses he gave into
the hearts of many American warriors would later become the
inspiration for much of Irene’s writings.
In 1972, a few months after graduating high
school, Irene met James Onorato, a soldier who had just returned from
Vietnam. After dating two weeks, they married, raised three children,
and are still happily married today.
Irene and James, both radiation protection
technicians, retired from the nuclear power industry in 2014 and now
reside in Louisiana. Readers can visit Irene’s website at

A Soldier’s Christmas Poem (by unknown)

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,

Transforming the yard to a winter delight.

The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,

Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. (more…)

Karen’s A Most Rebellious Debutant is an awesome story of the regency era. As such it is full of rules and laws for the young debutant in England. This is a great book; it kept me glued to the pages with the excitement of being young and carefree.

Lucy, a seventeen-year-old, young, debutant falls in love with her dance teacher, an older young man, who sweeps her off her feet by his mere presence. In an age when a young lady was never (more…)
