Two-Wrongs-Make-a-Right-3D-CoverTwo Wrongs Make a Right is now live in the #Kindle store…get your copy today!

 

How can something so wrong…

All Quinn Dorsey wants is a white picket fence fairy tale. But after another failed relationship and her biological clock ticking double time, she’s desperate enough to try online dating. Following a series of worst dates ever, she decides happily-ever-after isn’t in the Tarot cards. Forget Cupid, it’s time to take matters into her own hands. A simple seduction should do the trick, but then everything that can go wrong…does!

…Turn out to be so right

Dak Savage isn’t interested in commitment. He’s been burned by women before – lied to, used, even shot. Hell, he considers women a curse and has one rule he never breaks – don’t pick up women in bars. But when he agrees to a guys’ night out and meets up with the feisty, fast talking Quinn, his rule shatters like a dropped shot glass.

A one night stand turns into a long weekend and as Quinn tries to abandon her ridiculous scheme, she finds herself nose-to-nose and toe-to-toe with the best mistake she’s ever made.

skelton runTwenty years ago, four teenage boys left a baby behind in a crushed car after they caused the tragic accident that took the mother’s life. Ever since, they’ve guarded the secret that would’ve ruined their lives and destroyed their future careers. But when one of them succumbs to illness, a blackmailer makes contact, and the survivors realize that, somehow, someone else knows. Now, everything that matters to them is at stake.

Las Vegas billionaire Wendell Logan is pursuing the role of political kingmaker, and he’s selected his unsuspecting king: Alan Granger, governor of Pennsylvania. Granger confesses his closet skeleton to Logan, but the tycoon has invested too much time and money into Granger’s future presidential campaign to let him and his old friends endanger Logan’s power play.

John's author photoAfter graduating from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, I did my surgical residency in the U.S. Army at Madigan Army Medical Center, Ft. Lewis, Washington. I then spent three years in the Medical Corps as a General Surgeon before leaving the Army for private practice. Thirty years later, I retired to begin a new career as a writer. I enjoy cooking, tennis, politics, films and film history, the wonders of the cosmos, and, of course, reading. Thrillers is one of my favorite genres, so thrillers is what I like to write. My wife and I (mainly Diane) raised two sons we’re proud of and who are pursuing careers having nothing to do with the medical field! After living in Pennsylvania for a number of years, Diane and I settled in North Carolina, where the winters are easy to take and the only weather we get antsy about is the occasional hurricane.

Today, I wanted to feature John DeBoer once again because he has another book releasing today! I’ve read Skeleton Run and it is another story that will keep you guessing.

As writers, we learn from reading other writers’ work. From John’s style, I’ve learned it’s best to introduce several secondary characters. That way, you can bring them in again later in the story to keep readers guessing about their part in the plot. John does an excellent job of that!

**Thanks, John. I appreciate you letting me feature your books on my website. I always enjoy your reading your work!

Check out all his books on Amazon. Friend/like him on Facebook and Goodreads.

get the pictureMy friend, John DeBoer, released Get The Picture? on April 4 and has another book release coming on April 14! He is a busy man!! Here’s the description of this suspenseful thriller, Get The Picture?

 

Jack Lansing, M.D. is a widower who’s now ready to get on with his life when a chance meeting with a beautiful young woman changes everything – but not in the way he hopes. After a one-night tryst with the enticing vixen, the unsuspecting surgeon finds himself the target of a powerful U.S. senator, organized crime, and a figure from his past he’d long forgotten – all because he succumbs to the charms of a woman he can’t resist, despite the predicament she has put him in. Beginning in Jack’s once-peaceful beach town, a deadly game of sex, money, and retribution plays out to a thrilling conclusion.

 

John's author photo

After graduating from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, John L. DeBoer, M.D., F.A.C.S. completed a surgical residency in the U.S. Army and then spent three years in the Medical Corps as a general surgeon. Thirty years of private practice later, he retired to begin a new career as a writer.

When not creating new plot lines for his novels, Dr. DeBoer pursues his interests in cooking, film s and film history, politics, and the amazing cosmos. Though he’s an avid tennis player, his yet-to-be-fulfilled goal is to achieve a level of mediocrity in the frustrating game of golf.

The father of two grown sons, he lives with his wife in North Carolina.

 

I’ve had the pleasure of reading Get the Picture? and I have to say, John DeBoer has a talent for keeping the reader guessing. He introduces enough  characters, that just when you think you have it figured out…you don’t! If you enjoy a good thriller, filled with suspense and seduction, then this book is a great read for you!

Today, I’m pleased to feature Roy Dimond and his new release, SILENCE AND CIRCUMSTANCE.  Here he answers some questions about the book, which for all you mystery buffs…will find very interesting! A mystery concerning mystery writer, Agatha Christie! The first five sentences of the fifth chapter he shares here, are enough to hook me! I’ve purchased the book and can’t wait to read it!

 

Thank you so much, Roy for taking part in Five on Friday. I always enjoy your answers and your books!

silence

-I wasn’t familiar with the disappearance of Agatha Christie, but then again, I’m not much of a history buff. How did you come up with the story idea?

First Ann, let me say thanks once again for allowing me to participate in your wonderful Five on Friday Blog. It is just great talking with you again. I am very excited about the launch of Silence and Circumstance published by Untreed Reads and a big thank you to my agent Malaga Baldi who got me the deal.

Well, the disappearance of Agatha is well known for most readers of Mrs. Christie’s novels. At the time, December 1926, it was possibly the biggest story of the decade, followed by virtually every household in England. Imagine if Stephen King went missing today, possibly kidnapped or worse? Social media would be frantic with information. It was not that different in England at the time of her kidnapping. At that time, morning newspapers and neighborhood gossip took the place of Google and twitter, but information was shared almost as quickly.

The idea intrigued me to develop the story from a different perspective, so I chose to tell the story from the eyes of the Governess, Charlotte Fisher. No one knows for sure what happened those 11 days Agatha went missing, but the prevailing theory is that she had a nervous breakdown. But other theories persist, from kidnapping, to a public relations stunt for her upcoming book launch. Some even believe Agatha worked for British Intelligence.

 I like to think she was on a mission that would be relevant even today.

I think it’s clever to write a mystery concerning a mystery writer. Was that part of the appeal of your story idea? And, since it’s fiction based on a true event, how much is fact?

 Thank you and yes it was absolutely part of the appeal. Writing a fictional account about a real event, Agatha Christie going missing, it’s a natural. I had stormy nights, and lightening, and wind storms blowing through my head the entire time I wrote. There is a tremendous amount of fact in the book. I researched it the very best I could. Information started popping up that guided my story. For example, the fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy Sayers actually participated in the search. It was the first time that planes were involved in searching for a missing person and canals were dredged looking for a body. That stuff is right out of Agatha’s stories only it’s true and about her. Every British citizen was asked to keep an eye open for Mrs. Christie and 16,000 officers were involved in the search.

 It was a rich environment to allow a writer’s mind to play. So the fictional part was, for me, as much fun as the research. To be able to bring Hemingway and secret societies into play, well it was a wonderful experience. It seemed that each character I added did somehow actually tie into the search, as the English elite was a very closed society back in that time.

-Are you an Agatha fan? Do you read her work?

 I am a huge Agatha Christie fan and have read most if not all her books including her amazing short stories. I have seen the actual Orient Express and taken the Blue Train of which she wrote. I gave a small nod to Agatha in the opening of my book, as the cast of characters are introduced in order of appearance with a small write up about each one, as she often did in her novels.

 -Just for fun, since this is Five on Friday. Go to the fifth chapter of your book, and give us the first five sentences of that chapter.

 The main character Charlotte “Carlo” Fisher is speaking. The Dorothy is Dorothy Sayers who, by the way, invented the saying, “It pays to advertise.” As with most writers I gathered this information through research.

Chapter Five

The Associations

 It was near midnight by the time we navigated our way through the back streets and alleys of London arriving exhausted at the London train station. For most of the walk, Dorothy held her arm around my waist in an embrace that I found most disconcerting. Even in the midst of the other waiting passengers, she held me close. I am sure with her boyish clothes and haircut many thought we were man and wife. Despite my discomfort I said nothing, as I did not exactly know how to broach the subject other than occasionally straining away from her, an action that she seemed to not notice.

 -I’ve read your book, The Rubicon Effect, which has a lot of twists and turns, and if I remember correctly, also multiple points of view. From the excerpt of Silence and Circumstance, it’s written in first person. Was that a hard switch for you, or, are you more comfortable writing first person?

Thank you for remembering The Rubicon Effect and yes it was written from multiple points. Silence and Circumstance however has two threads running through it. One is Agatha’s Governess searching for her missing employer, but also Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his protege, a very young, Ian Fleming who travel to Istanbul in search of Agatha’s diary. As in any good mystery, clues guide the characters. The story comes down to this… Is Agatha Christie a pawn or the puppet-master?

 Thank you again, Ann for your time and support. You always ask the most interesting questions. Best of luck with your own writing career. More books Ann! Readers like myself demand it! All the best.
