The Spy Who Kissed Me by Pauline Baird Jones an interview

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Pauline, when did you first know you wanted to be an author?

That knowledge is lost in the mists of my brain. I expect it will bubble up closer to the end of my life, rather like the kegs in HALLELUJAH TRAIL (does that totally date me?). I began to seriously pursue writing in the last part of the 80’s. Gulp. I launched my writing “career” with some bad essays, then moved into scriptwriting. That went better than the essays. I had a play produced. Realized it was not an economic path and moved into fiction and non-fiction. My first sale was a children’s story. My second sale was kid’s non-fiction. Tried my hand at women’s short fiction. Then the First Gulf War started, I was watching it and (more…)

About the Book

Canada is probably the last place you’d expect to find an American spy. And it was the last place CIA operative Talia Reynolds expected to run into fellow operative Brand Copley. AKA her new boss. AKA her ex-boyfriend.

Just the guy every woman wants to face in the middle of planning her wedding. Once again, Talia’s lying to the man she loves, but this time, to protect his heart.

After Brand takes over Talia’s latest case and steals her newest agent, he assigns her to spy on her old boss—who’s suddenly giving her every reason not to trust him. With only weeks until the big day, planning falls by the wayside as she goes into damage control mode. But when Talia discovers Brand’s real motives, fighting him is the only option, no matter what the personal and professional cost.

The Clock Giant by Brooke Johnson

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

This is an interesting tale that is well done and entertaining. It will enhance any family library. The writing is easy to read, clean and engaging. This is the first book in a series and the end shows this clearly. I enjoy this style of writing and the way the tale is presented.

The problem is that she is a girl and (more…)
