Special Guest - David Golden

It is my pleasure to introduce to you a very special guest today, western author, David Golden. I was shocked and surprised that this man lives in a neighboring town and from what I discovered about Mr. Golden, he deserves every bit of success God blesses him with.

Dr. Carol Wood, PhD tells David's story.....Until his twenties when his knees went bad, David Golden lived the modern cowboy's life in the rodeo. After that career was cut short, he traveled all over the country (and a few foreign countries) as a pipeline and nuclear welder. "It allowed me to see the remote places around the nation. It was different from just visiting the metro areas," he says.

In 1992, multiple sclerosis prevented him from working, but David did not allow the fact that he is legally blind from the MS to stop him from going back to school at forty years old and pursuing a successful college career with a minor in English, which is how I met him where he enrolled in a class I teach in British literature.

David told me, "Everyday I can wake up and see a reflection in the mirror is going to be a pretty good day! If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have saved more money and took better care of myself."

I was impressed by the way David surmounted the difficulties MS and his blindness caused, and I am proud that he has now tried his hand at novels--successfully!" noted Dr. Carol Wood, a Retired English Professor from McNeese State University.

David's four children are Phillip "Flip", the late great Kenzie Golden-Roden (February 26,1979-February 7, 2006), the late great Aaron (August 10, 1982 -November 14, 2004), and of course Jake! He has two grandsons, too: Coy and Dawson.

David said, "I love my kids very much and in such a tumultuous world we live in today, I am proud of the way my children have turned out to be successful adults. I hope, and pray my grandchildren do as well."

David has authored 5 books - My Prodigal Brother, Shanghaied in New Orleans, Slumber in Sioux City, Tied up in Tonawanda and Ignorant in Idaho. All of his books are not a series but an on-going saga. They are about, Garrett Stone, a prominent ranch owner in Monntana who has a care-free foot-loose brother John who is constantly getting into misdemeaner type trouble throughout the country. Garrett has to travel to rescue his brther every time.

The 6 foot-four- inch, blue-eyed, and broad shouldered cowboy falls in love with a beautiful black-haired waitress named Becky. Her aunt has had a stroke , so she, her mom, and her son have to travel the country to find specialists doctors to treat her aunt. Somehow, she always manages to beat Garrett to where he has to go to bail out his brother. The two want-a-be lovers try their best to nurture a long-term relationship but to no avail.

Each book is independantly written, so you do not have to read them in order to enjoy them. They are written in the early 1890s but each on has a "hook". Something is chronologically out of order, and it is up to the reader to find it!

David will be traveling to Boise, ID July 31 - August 2nd to do book signings on a holiday train where a Wild West skit will be performed. The signings start at 2:30.

What an inspiration! If you're a fan of western's please check out David's website and find out how/where to purchase his books.

David may not be able to comment because he is on the road to Idaho, but I'm sure he'd appreciate your words of encouragement either here or email him at: davidwgolden@juno.com

Until later....Be Blessed!

Saturday Spotlight - Dianne Miley!

Good Morning Friends!

So good to see you here again for another Saturday Spotlight. Today's guest is fellow TWRP/WRP author, Dianne Miley and her book, Lilacs for Laura.
First a little about Dianne in her own words.....
Growing up, I always loved to write. I began writing poetry in second grade. During high school, I wrote for the yearbook and school paper. I took creative writing classes because I enjoyed making up stories. Now I flex my imagination through inspiring tales of romance and mystery. Best of all, I’ve found a way to share my faith through fictional characters in a fun romance.

In real life, I've been married to my high school sweetheart for over 25 years. God blessed us with both a son and daughter who are now grown and in college.

Besides writing and promoting my books, I write a newspaper column called Time to Enjoy for the Geauga County Maple Leaf. In addition, my husband and I own a small auto transport trucking company. I handle the accounting and secretarial work, as well as delivering cars occasionally.

In my spare time – ha! – I enjoy gardening, flower arranging, decorating, cooking, baking, and entertaining. I also love visiting tea rooms and quaint little shops like the ones in Crystal Falls. A collector of teapots, teacups, and pretty old dishes, I adore using them to host tea parties for family and friends. See the Fun page of my website for favorite tea party recipes of one of the characters in the Crystal Falls series. (All women after my own heart.)

Laura James loves working in her family’s flower shop, but has to ward off advances from her brother-in-law. She distrusts men but cannot deny her attraction when she stumbles into Brett Mitchell. Drawn to one another despite their conflicting goals, Laura longs for a secure future in her Ohio hometown, while Brett yearns for adventure and an escape from his abusive father. When he lands a NASCAR job in North Carolina, Laura fears she will never see him again.

Devastated, she withdraws just when she needs help most. Her brother-in-law is murdered and all evidence points to Laura. Brett knows members of her family, as well as the town gossip share motive and opportunity. Will he return to help clear her? Who will reveal the killer in a shocking twist? And will Laura ever find security in love?

Laura James froze in her tracks.

Good heavens, was that Brett Mitchell in the gazebo? Back in high school, every girl in Crystal Falls had a crush on him. He graduated a year ahead of her, in her sister's class, and had left for college.

Handsome as ever in a uniform shirt and jeans, he wolfed down a sandwich. Laura hadn’t expected him to return to Crystal Falls, especially not with a father like his.

She heard a noise behind her, and a sudden, sharp pain pinched her behind. With a shout, she leapt into the air and whirled around.

“Ahhhh!” She flailed her arms at the oversized bird. It headed for her sandwich. Laura swung her purse at a wing. The swan dodged flying makeup and keys.

“Awwwk!” With beady eyes aimed for attack, its long white neck thrust toward her.

Laura threw her purse at the bird and turned to run. The swan bit her butt again. She yelped and ran, looking back as it nipped at her heels.

Suddenly she hit a wall of hard flesh. Strong arms lifted her off the ground. She spun around and landed with Brett Mitchell between her and the swan.

His nearness took her breath away.

Lilacs for Laura is available in Ebook and Print from White Rose Publishing!

Well Folks, that's it for another Saturday Spotlight. Join me Wednesday when I introduce you to a very special author.

Until later....take care and Be Blessed!

Saturday Spotlight - Keena Kincaid

Hello Friends,

Well, after the last 2.5 weeks with three adult children and one grandchild in from out of state, this past week sure was quiet - except when I had to go to the main office instead of my normal home-away-from home to work LOL!

Today's spotlight is author Keena Kincaid and her book, Anam Cara.
Blame the stolen stones. While hiking along Hadrian’s Wall in northern Britain a few years ago, Keena Kincaid stopped at a pub for a bite and pint and noticed what looked suspiciously like Roman-cut stones in the foundation. She wondered what stories they’d tell if they could. ANAM CARA came to life that afternoon, anchored by its setting in a then 1000-year-old pub.
Keena grew up on an Ohio farm slightly to the left of nowhere and learned to read by picking words out of an old history book that vividly recounted the past through short stories centered on children of the age: The Grecian slave boy. The girl from Pompeii. The knight’s squire in England.

The stories stayed with her. After honing her writing skills as a newspaper reporter and editor, she switched to public relations and began writing fiction. When not working or writing romance, Keena regales her niece and nephews with stories of quick-thinking ladies, mathematically challenged knights, and ill-mannered dragons that chew with their mouths open.

Back of book blurb:
Branwyn ap Owen knows it’s appointed for men “once to die, then the judgment” but his hell is to live again and again until he rights an ancient wrong. Unlike other such souls caught on a karmic wheel, he remembers the past, and he always remembers her.

Liza knows nothing of the vow trapping her in Bran’s judgment, yet when he walks into her inn, she knows he could destroy the life she has carefully built over the years if she lets him get too close. Trouble is, Bran can’t take a hint, no matter how blunt she is.

Determined to repair the damage of his first betrayal, Bran uses the knowledge of a thousand years to woo Liza. Yet just as he begins to regain her heart, a fresh betrayal threatens their last hope for love.

Bran frowned at the bite in her voice. “I do no’ ken yer anger with me, Liza. No’ even the Scots are this combative. Do I remind ye of yer husband or a lover who ill-used ye?”

“I have had no lover but him.”

“Perhaps that ‘tis the problem. Ye want what ye can no’ have.”

She made a sound between disgust and laughter. “Oh, I am quite certain I can have it if I but ask.”

“Aye, ye could.”

She stared at the river.


Her name on his tongue pulled her agitation into a sharp-pointed need. She ached.

“I can no’ offer ye the morrow. Even if I ne’er leave Carlisle, this moment is all that is mine to give.”

She made the mistake of looking at him. He claimed her attention, kept it. Heat sparked between them. Nervousness swarmed like excited bees in her stomach. Wulfric had never made her tingle with expectation, and Aelric for all his sweetness never caused her body to knot like a Celtic brooch. Bran did both just by breathing.

Oh boy, gotta love those Celtic romances! Anam Cara is available now at The Wild Rose Press! You can find out more about Keena at her website.

Thanks for joining me for this week's edition of Saturday Spotlight. Hope to see you again soon!

Until later..... Be Blessed!

VBT - Barbara Bonfigli

Hello Friends!

Wow what a month! June passed by in a flurry of activity. All three of my out-of-state children & one grandchild came in and we were busy, busy, busy! Now everyone is gone back to their lives and it is quiet, quiet, quiet LOL!

Today I bring to you, author Barbara Bonfigli and her book, Cafe Tempest Adventures on a Small Greek Island which is on tour with Niki Leigh Promotions.

First a little about the author.....Barbara is an author, lyricist and theatrical producer. When she isn’t writing songs or travel articles, or producing shows, she packs some French roast and catches a plane to Athens. Then a ferry or a hydrofoil to... but that's classified.

She hitchhiked to Greece in her first nomadic summer, and discovered her native land. She’s been exploring it ever since -- hiking in the Pelion, kayaking in the Dodecanese, sailing the Aegean. In a tiny seaside taverna, over fried kalamari and a pitcher of homemade red, a few Greek families and she watched Obama conquer Berlin.

Maps are her recreational drug of choice. After wearing out five passports and four continents she uncorked her memories and imagination -- and a bottle or two of retsina -- to write her first novel, "Café Tempest: Adventures on a Small Greek Island". It's a kind of "A Year in Provence" meets "Zorba the Greek". You are invited to the mythical island of Pharos, to laugh and dance in the hammock, not the cradle of Western civilization.

Now, about the book......What is it about Greece that makes it so exotic, so romantic, so tantalizing that it’s right at the top of everybody’s bucket list – the one foreign land they’re longing to visit? Our dreams are made on Never on Sunday, Zorba the Greek, and more recently My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Mama Mia.

Café Tempest: Adventures on a Small Greek Island is a witty, evocative, beautifully written novel that puts you right in the heart of Greek island life. It’s so alive with the sights and smells and tastes and characters of Greece that you can pick it up and start your Mediterranean vacation on page one. On a deeper level, the book is filled with the kinds of observations, reflections, and arc of self-discovery that make Eat, Pray, Love so compelling.

“Welcome to Pharos. Laugh and dance in the hammock—not the cradle—of Western civilization,” says author, lyricist, and theatrical producer Barbara Bonfigli. “I’ve been falling in love with Greece since I was old enough to drink retsina. But if Sarah hadn’t captured my imagination you’d never know how I feel about friendship, feta, and the abundance of grace that turns friends into lovers and fishermen into kings.”

When Sarah, a thirty-something American theatrical producer, is asked to direct the locals in their summer show, she picks Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. What follows is a hilarious adventure in casting, rehearsing, and consuming. Her neighbors are excited about acting but delirious about eating. Their rehearsals in a deconsecrated church become a feast in four acts.
Armed with a sizzling wit, a dangerously limited Greek vocabulary, and a pitch-perfect ear for drama, Sarah navigates the major egos and minor storms of a cab driver Caliban, a postmaster Prospero, and a host of fishermen dukes and knaves.

When she falls in love, there are even trickier seas to navigate. Her own offstage romance provides an exhilarating, unpredictable counterpoint to Shakespeare’s story of magic, intrigue, and the power of love.

Sounds interesting..... To learn about Barbara Bonfigli and Café Tempest, feel free to visit any of these sites.....

Barbara Bonfigli’s website – www.cafetempest.com

Order Café Tempest directly from the publisher - http://www.tellmepress.com/pub_ct.php or from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Café-Tempest-Adventures-Small-Island/dp/0981645313

To see the complete tour schedule visit http://virtualblogtour.blogspot.com/2009/05/cafe-tempest-by-barbara-bonfigli-summer.html

Well Friends, hope you enjoy this visit to a small Greek island!

Trying to get things back on an even keel after such a busy month - so I may only see you a couple time a week again for a while.

Until later....take care and be BLESSED!

Saturday Spotlight - Christy French

Happy July 4th Everyone!

Today I'd like to welcome back author, Christy French with her book, The Bodyguard and the Showdog.
Born and raised in the South, award winning, internationally published author and poet Christy Tillery French loves to write about quirky Southern women and has published six books to date: Chasing Horses, Wayne's Dead, Chasing Demons, The Bodyguard, The Bodyguard and the Show Dog, (Book 2 of the Bodyguard Series), and The Bodyguard and the Rock Star (Book 3 of the Bodyguard Series) and her latest, Chasing Secrets. More information about Christy and her writing can be found at http://www.christytilleryfrench.com/ or www.authorsden.com/christytfrench

Blurb: Protection specialist Natasha Chamberlain is self-employed and happily involved with her former boss, Jonce Striker. Natasha's first case centers around Chumley, a champion show dog. The squat Pug has been sent a death threat regarding his participation in an upcoming event.

Although Natasha sees little danger in protecting a canine, she discovers that isn't the case when she ends up in the emergency room several times. As the suspect list grows, Natasha finds it increasingly difficult to balance her new business with her increasing love for Striker.

Likewise, Striker sees the investigation growing wackier and more dangerous by the day. His time is spent between trying to convince Natasha the bodyguard business is too dangerous for her and deciding how he can persuade her to marry him.

Will Natasha find the culprit before it's too late? Will Striker find a way into Natasha's heart? This romantic comedy will have readers turning pages to find the answers.


Natasha leaned back in her chair, feet propped on the desk, lost in reliving the prior night's marathon with Striker. She was working herself into a fever and knew if she didn't stop, she'd be calling him within the next half-hour, finding some excuse to see him, using him to put out the fire. She had just gotten to the really good part, where Striker finally quit playing around and got down to serious business, when bright yellow light burst into her office, conquering the inner fluorescent murk.

Startled, Natasha tilted back and crashed to the floor, her legs in the air. "Ope!" she grunted, staring at the ceiling, thinking that was what she got for buying second-hand office furniture.

As awkward as a turtle on its back, she struggled to untangle from the chair. Aware of warm, moist air tickling her ear, she turned her head. Something wet and slimy rubbed across her lips, and she drew away with a "Phhtt." A small dog watched her, panting a smile. Was there a merry glimmer in the animal's eyes? Was it laughing at her? Her gaze followed the dog's leash to the person attached to the other end. Natasha rolled off the chair and lunged to her feet.

"Can I help you?"

"Oh, my dear, are you all right?" an elderly woman said, one hand over her heart.

"I'm fine. I'm afraid I just overbalanced." Natasha snuck a glance at the dog. He was laughing at her! Talk about humiliating. After wrestling the chair into an upright position, she cleared her throat and repeated, "Can I help you?"

"Oh, dear, I hope so."

Natasha extended her hand, offering as warm a smile as she could manage under the circumstances. "I'm Natasha Chamberlain."

The woman transferred the leash to her left hand and gave Natasha a delicate handshake. "So pleased to meet you, Ms. Chamberlain. I'm Myrtle Galbreath."

Natasha stooped over to pat the dog's head but avoided looking into its eyes. She straightened and gestured toward one of the chairs beyond her desk. "Please."

Myrtle took slow, measured steps in that direction, the dog waddling along beside her, and gingerly sank into the seat. Seeing its mistress had collapsed, the pooch did likewise, emitting a small grunt when he landed.

Natasha lowered herself into her chair with caution. "Cute dog."

Myrtle's face brightened. "Thank you, dear. I think so."

Natasha regarded the small, wrinkled face staring lovingly into his mistress's beaming one. "What breed is he? Pug?"

"Yes, dear, Chumley's a Pug," Myrtle said, returning the dog's affectionate gaze.

Natasha nodded. This was the first of the breed she had ever seen up close.

Myrtle returned her attention to Natasha. "Are you, per chance, a dog lover, dear?"

"Oh, yes. I love dogs."

"Do you own any?"

"Well, my best friend Roger and I have a Weimaraner we share." Natasha eyed Chumley, thinking Brutus could eat him for lunch. "And my..." She paused, unsure how to refer to Striker. Boyfriend? He was more than that and definitely not a boy. Special other? That didn't fit either; it sounded too generic. She noticed Myrtle seemed confused by her hesitancy, so said, "My life mate and I have been talking about getting a dog together."

Myrtle gave her a concerned look. "Oh, my. That's a big commitment. I hope you're ready to take that step."

Wait a minute. They were only talking about a dog here, not a kid or anything. Commitment? Yikes! Natasha hadn't thought of it like that. She chased those thoughts away.

"What can I do for you, Ms. Galbreath?"

"Well, I saw your ad in our community newspaper."


"And it says you offer private protection services."

"That's right."

"My attorney tells me that would mean something along the lines of a bodyguard."


"Well, I'm in need of one, I'm afraid."

Natasha tamped down the bubble of excitement threatening to overtake her. Oh, boy, here it was, her first client! She couldn't wait to tell Striker. Well, maybe not. He didn't want her to be a bodyguard. Not because his investigative firm provided private security and she would be competing with him, but because he thought it was too dangerous. Especially for Natasha, particularly after her first stint as bodyguard for her best friend, Roger. But that was another story. However, guarding an elderly lady shouldn't be dangerous in any — hold it, back up. What did it matter, how he felt about it? This was her life, not his.”

"Ms. Chamberlain?"

"Oh. I'm sorry, my mind kind of wandered. Please, call me Natasha."

The older woman gave her a matronly smile. "And you must call me Myrtle."

"You're in need of a bodyguard? Might I ask the reason you would need one, Ms. Galbreath ”excuse me, Myrtle?"

"Oh, my dear, it's not for me. It's for Chumley." Myrtle gave Natasha a look, as if she must be crazy if she thought Myrtle needed someone to guard her body.

Natasha tried not to let her disappointment show. Of course, her first official job as a protection specialist would be to guard a dog. Striker would get a kick out of this one; she'd never hear the end of it.

"Chumley's in danger?"

"Yes, dear, extreme danger."

"What kind of danger is he in?"

"Well, I'm afraid he's received a threatening letter."

Natasha's sympathetic look betrayed her inner concern she just might have a nut case on her hands.

Hope you enjoyed this edition of Saturday Spotlight!
Have a BLESSED & Safe July 4th weekend!
