Mrs. Murray was murdered in Mary’s new house

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018
Mary’s family has moved into a huge Victorian mansion. She loves her gigantic new house, especially her room. But then she begins to meet the house’s other residents. 
 
Mrs. Murray was murdered in Mary’s new house. At first she tries to scare the new residents away, but there seems to be a force connecting the ghost to Mary. 
 
Even the stranded Brownies, the little people who live between the walls, feel that connection. When Mary becomes deathly ill, the Brownies and the ghost team up to try to rescue her, only to encounter a witch and her evil minions. Time is running out. They must rescue Mary from a fever-induced dream world before she is trapped there forever.

Snippet:
There is a street called Piccadilly in
London, England. In fact, there is a place, an intersection, known as
Piccadilly Circus. But it is questionable as to whether or not there are any
major intersections along the famous Piccadilly Street that have residential
houses of some distinction on all four corners, and there is definitely no
intersection of Piccadilly Street and Waterloo Street. When I last visited
London, England, I was disappointed to note that there wasn’t even a Waterloo
Street, just a Waterloo Road, and that was on the other side of the river from
Piccadilly Street. So, the intersection of Piccadilly Street and Waterloo
Street could only occur in the other London, the one in which Mary grew up.
Indeed, the number of her childhood home, had it existed in London, England,
could only exist in the middle of the intersection of Piccadilly Street and
Regent Street.
            There
are other cities in the world that bear the auspicious name of London. But only
the one in Canada has an intersection of Piccadilly Street and Waterloo Street
with an old Victorian mansion on each of the four corners. One, in particular,
is a grand Queen Anne style, early twentieth-century building complete with a
tower room, a bay window, stained glass windows, mosaic tiled floors and much
more. A family moved in to take up residence in 1967. Mary’s family. It was
also at this house that others took up residence many years earlier and never
left. One died and left her restless spirit to roam the halls and torment those
who chose to reside in the house. The other two were little sprites known as
Brownies. They lived inside the walls and watched over the house that they also
called home.
You see, the Brownies had a mission, something that was going to
involve one of the new residents of this old house: a twelve-year-old girl by
the name of Mary. This is, in fact, Mary’s story, or, at least, the beginning
of her story. For there is much more to Mary’s story than this little tale.

“Brùnaidh an Easain! It’s time you started living up to your name,” Peallaidh exclaimed.

“What?” Brùnaidh moaned. “You mean waterfall? And where am I to be finding a waterfall in this cursed place?”

“Sure and weren’t you just bursting water pipes this winter past?” Peallaidh chortled.

“That would make a bonny waterfall.”

“Aye, and a wet basement besides, with gads of giant folks traipsing through our domain to try and fix and clean the mess,” Brùnaidh pointed out. “Now why would I be wanting to do that? Besides,” he paced the small space between the wall and the outer brickwork, his feet barely touching the floor as he walked. “I think this family may be our key. The little lass needs watching.”

“The one they call Mary?” Peallaidh queried. “I can’t see how she can help. She’s but a hen, and a wee one at that.”

“But a whole lot bigger than you and I put together,” Brùnaidh noted. “After all, we’re Brownies and, magic or not, there’s only so much we can do.”

TEENS
ENLIST THE FAE TO WIN A WAR IN IRELAND
 

 

When
all attempts to save her fiance fail, Ailis must rely on the magic of
the forest folk. 


  

 

Following
an ambush at the Upton Rail Station in 1921 Ireland, British troops
burn Ailis’ home to the ground and arrest her fiancé, Liam, for
murder. She and her younger brother Paddy flee to an enchanted glen.
Lured by a haunting song, Paddy is abducted by forest folk. Perilous
obstacles, and a questionable stranger, hinder Ailis’ attempts to
find her brother or free her fiance, until her only hope for survival
rests on the magic of the Fae.


 

 

˃˃˃
A bitter uprising in Ireland is taking place and two siblings are
tossed in the battle, facing death, believing in love, and hoping in

1920
found Ireland at the peak of tensions that had been building for
centuries. Famine, tyranny and strife robbed the Irish of their
homes, their lives and their country. Four years after the Easter
Rising, pressure became so great, that the southern Irish took up
arms against the British and fought for a free nation. Thread of a
Spider, a historical fantasy, weaves history and Irish myth together
to tell a story about two teenage siblings caught in the war and
swathed in the legends of Erie.˃˃˃ A fantasy based on history
woven with rich Irish lore.

Gerald soon discovers solving a murder mystery meets with a stone cold reception

Friday, November 3rd, 2017
An
Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody
by
D.L. Gardner
Genre:
Paranormal Humor 
 
Rockford
Peadlebody dies in a train wreck while traveling with his family, (a
rather dysfunctional lot of half-blood vampires) after a flood in
Mississippi washes their home away. Once his brother Gerald, his wife
Ginger, and son Raymond reach grandpa’s estate in Ohio, they are
surprised by the news that grandaddy Benjamin Peadlebody has also
died. They are now heirs to the infamous Peadlebody manor and all its
peculiarities, including the butler, a reserved, tattooed, muscle-man
named Richard Cottlebone, 

 

 


It
seems fishy to Gerald that two untimely deaths in the family happened
within a week. Yes, Rockford’s demise was of his own doing, but
Benjamin’s? Perhaps the butler, knows more than he’s letting on?

 

 

To
prove himself worthy, since he failed to live up to old Benjamin’s
standards when he was alive, Gerald goes about to unravel the thread
of Papa’s death. No help comes from Ginger. She’s too busy trying to
un-vampire herself. And Raymond is in love, but not with his
relatives. Gerald soon discovers solving a murder mystery meets with
a stone cold reception.

My review*****

The Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody by D. L. Gardner is quite an interesting tale about dysfunctional vampires. It is a great tale, with even a nicer plot that will keep you glue to it’s pages. I enjoyed the characters and their quirky personalities. It is a wholesome tale and would be enjoy by the whole family.

Raymond wants a normal life, he doesn’t want to be a half vampire and his mother is trying everything to make it happen for both of them. His grandfather is dead and so is his father. His uncle inherited the Peadlebody Mansion and, with it, the library and all his father’s diaries. Who would want those diaries and why and would they kill to obtain them? These are some of the mysteries that await readers as they peruse this tale. Nice writing of a good story and the telling.

This story is completely different than any other vampire books out there. In a sense, it is quite refreshing and fresh in that genre. The characters are well developed and fun to get to know and cheer on. All in all, a good read for a winter’s night by the fire.

The 3rd book in the 1st of several
trilogies featuring Maura & her family! 
 
Maura has never felt so alone in her life…nor has her existence ever been so overshadowed by peril… 
 
Not only do both her parents—her distant but loving mother and recently- returned father—remain absent from her life, but due to
the hideous error in judgement executed in collusion with her best friend, Valdamir, and adoptive sister, Susie, Maura has been cut off from the pair’s friendship and support, forbidden by both her father and the fallout from the dire outcome to see either of them. The heartbreak she suffers, brought on by the weight of these estrangements, is only intensified by the continued mysterious absence of her supernaturally-destined mate, Ron…whose disappearance delivers
grave consequences Maura would have never dreamed possible…
 
Despised by her vampire cousin, Aldiva, for reasons
Maura cannot yet comprehend, the young changeling will be forced to guard her back with every step, as she comes to realize this member of her vampire family would love nothing more than to bring about her demise. Aldiva’s wrath calls forth other members from both Vancouver covens, forcing them to rush to Maura’s aid—even though her father, their king, has expressly forbidden the other vampires to initiate contact with his daughter. Will her extended family on
Vancouver Island obey, abandoning Maura to her doom, or will they instead rebel against Maxwell’s wishes in order to save her life? 
 
In addition to the menace personified in her
unsolicited enemy, the unlikely vampire princess will find herself drowning as she is pulled down into the depths of a far more devastating crisis…one which may condemn her to a fate she considers much more undesirable than death. But in order to tear herself free from the deadly pull which is drawing her under,
Maura must enlist the help of her preternatural family, exposing her newfound friends to a danger none of them have ever had the misfortune to face before. Can she be saved or will the riptide drag Maura under…along with those she loves the most… 
 
In this third and final book of The Maura DeLuca
Trilogy, the first of several trilogies to come, the reader will delve even deeper into the secrets guarded by Maura’s father, the mystery of Ron’s role in her life and the identities of the mysterious Vancouver Island Coven members who have, up until now, remained hidden in the shadows. This trilogy rounds out
the segment of Maura’s life during which she discovers she is a member of The Born—a human destined to complete her transformation into a vampire! This series of young adult fantasy novels has been enjoyed by readers of nearly
every age and are found by them to be dramatically different from any other vampire books they have read in the past. Discover a magical world filled with fae, angels, elves, pixies and other enchanting creatures in addition to two families made up of some of the most likeable vampires—for the most part—to ever
exist.

Snippet:
Millicent rested an elbow on the kitchen counter and watched me pour water and sprinkle grounds with an intense concentration she found comical. “Are you going to have some?” I asked, peering out of the corner of my eye at her as I pushed the brew button.


“Unlike your father, I am not in the habit of sipping at long-lost beverages. If I took anything to drink while visiting, My Dear, it would be you.”


I gasped before I could squash my alarm. She loved to come out with statements rife with shock-value just so she could laugh at my reactions. Although she did this often, I still hadn’t learned to quell my startled expressions, placing myself again and again at the mercy of her dark humor—a fitting element of her unique personality.


I tried to beat her at her own game. “Absolutely.” I affixed a warm smile in place and lifted my wrist to her. “Just a sip, okay?”


She called my bluff. “Oh! I was hoping you would grant me permission someday! You do smell delightful.” Millicent did take a sip of me, albeit a tiny one, but it earned her another deer-in-headlights-of-a-very-large-truck expression from me.


“Mmmmmm…” She licked her lips before throwing back her head and filling the kitchen with her dusky laughter. “Seriously, though, you taste very nearly like him.”


I took that as a compliment.

Danger, bravery, loyalty and betrayal stuff great books are made of

Candace, tell us where you were born –

Nothing special. I was born in cute little Payson, Utah, an a hospital that is now a library. 

black and white

What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Time. Writing is the easy part, I have stories in my head all the time, it’s everything else I have trouble with. Working, being a mom, being a wife, and everyone knows I love to get together and have fun. I wish i had more hours I could devote to writing and being an author. Ugh… being an adult stinks some times. 

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

It’s hard to narrow it down to one person. I’m deeply influenced by who is around my at the times of my greatest struggle. In my current state and project I’d have to say my two girls are influencing me to keep going every day. They’re very proud of me. My youngest thinks I’m a star and that I know very famous people.   

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I’m currently finishing my third and last novel in my series. I’m inspired (more…)

Things are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise’s snorkeling excursions in American Samoa. However, paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped. Lyn’s fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their

Nice, what is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Getting the word out about my book.

Amen to that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My father. He kept a library of books at my house. I consumed them. I probably shouldn’t have read some of the books when I did. For example, I read Rambo First Blood Part II in fifth grade. I think I read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings first, though.

David, tell us where you were born

I was born in Southern California and grew up a mile from Disneyland

Lucky you. 🙂 What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Learning how to be patient; Learning how to promote and market AFTER the book is written

Amen to that… Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

Certainly Walt Disney from a conceptual standpoint. Reading authors such as Dean Koontz, F. Paul Wilson, Clive Cussler, Dan Brown and even the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew all helped form my desire to want to write stories.

 I learned  english with the Hardy boys and Nancy Drew. 🙂 Who or What inspired you to write this book? (more…)
