  • Marsha A. Moore Returns as My Guest Author on October 24th

    in Books

    It's a two-fer tonight when Marsha A. Moore returns as my guest author on October 24th. Come listen as she reads from her Samhain story, Witch's Cursed Cabin, and her newest release, Blood Ice & Oak Moon, a Coon Hollow Coven Tale. * * *
    Blood Ice & Oak Moon Esme Underhill is about to discover a darkness hidden inside her that could destroy her chance for independence and possibly kill her.
    Esme’s mother took her young daughter away from Southern Indiana’s Coon Hollow Coven to prevent her from learning about the unusual witchcraft she had inherited. When Esme is twenty-seven, her beloved Grammy Flora passes away and leaves her property in the Hollow to her granddaughter. With this opportunity to remake her life and gain independence, Esme attempts to emulate Grammy Flora as a wildwood mystic who relies on the hedge world of faeries to locate healing herbs. But fae are shrewd traders. When they open their world to her, she must meet the unknown malevolence of her birthright.
    Thayne, the handsome king of the fae Winter Court, faces his own struggle to establish autonomy as a new regent. He is swept into the tempest of Esme’s unfolding powers, a dangerous threat to his court. His sworn duty is to protect his people, despite Esme’s beauty and allure, which tear at his resolve.
    Both Esme’s and Thayne’s dreams of personal freedom are lost…unless they can trust each other and overcome surmounting dangers.

    My Heart’s Desire by Andrea Kane
    Lady Alexandria Cassel scorned London's frivolous social whirl, seeking adventure as a stowaway aboard a merchant ship. Drake Barrett was the vessel's powerful captain—and a cynical duke who disdained a noble's shallow life. At sea he revealed neither his origins nor his wealth, and to Alexandria he was simply a man who made her cool reserve fly with the winds… whose desire for her was as wild as the ocean they sailed.
    Caught in the crossfire of war, they were shipwrecked on an idyllic island, where they tasted perfect passion… and tenderness. But Drake dreaded the day of their rescue—when his love would discover that the virile man she adored was at the pinnacle of the aristocracy she despised. Hardly did they suspect the base treachery that would soon threaten them… and the dangers each would brave to join forever their hearts and lives!

  • Writestream Tuesday: Against The Wind with Lee DiPietro

    in Books

    Lee DiPietro was born in Beverly, MA on April 11, 1958. She is the middle daughter of 5 girls and grew up in Long Island NY.   As a child she developed a love for sports, playing field hockey basketball and lacrosse in school and during the summer played tennis and swam for her local club teams. In college, she played lacrosse for Boston University. After graduating in 1980, she married her husband Lee (yes same first name) DiPietro and moved back to Long Island in 1981. Their first son, Tim was born in 1983 and Lee juggled a part time career of interior decorating and motherhood.
    in April of 1985, Lee was introduced to the world of running when her sister encouraged her to run the last 10 miles of The Boston Marathon with her. The cheers of the spectators and the thrill of running on that famous course reignited her thirst for competition.  The following November Lee ran her first race ever, running in The NYC Marathon. Without any formal training, Lee struggled to finish in four and a half hours, then vowed to run again.
    Her second son, Cryder, was born in 1987.  Lee prided herself on first being a good mom and wife and second being an outstanding triathlete.  She was a nationally ranked age group triathlete, competing in several World Championships before eventually committing to race in the 1994 Ironman World Championships in Hawaii.  In that race, in her first ironman competition, she won her age group and finished 17th overall among the women
    In September 2015, Lee published her first book, Against The Wind. In this memoir, she tells her story of her family’s incredible life threatening ordeals in 2010 and how her career as a runner and triathlete taught her and her family to face obstacles they thought beyond their means.
