Behind the Words host Lori Hays welcomes indie author Chantal Noordeloos. Saturday, November 2, 10:30 CT/11:30 ET
Chantal Noordeloos lives in the Netherlands, where she spends her time with her wacky, supportive husband, and outrageously cunning daughter, who is growing up to be a supervillain. When she is not busy exploring interesting new realities, or arguing with characters (aka writing), she likes to dabble in drawing.
There are many genres that Chantal likes to explore in her writing. Currently Sci-fi Steampunk is one of her favourites, but her ‘go to’ genre will always be horror. “It helps being scared of everything; that gives me plenty of inspiration,” she says.
Chantal likes to write for all ages, and storytelling is the element of writing that she enjoys most. “Writing should be an escape from everyday life, and I like to provide people with new places to escape to, and new people to meet.”

Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins' views on gun control were born out of her own personal family tragedy, losing her sister, brother-in-law, and their unborn child to a 16-year-old "thrill killer." Living every day with the memory of her loss, and continually fighting to keep the killer behind bars, Jenkins has been a vocal activist on her sister's behalf.
She brings to the table the issue of the mostly ignored rights of the victims when advocating within the juvenile justice system to keep this "serial killer in the making" behind bars. Arguing against early release of underage killers who have been tried and sentenced as adults, Jenkins says, "The nationwide campaign to end JLWOP has spent millions of dollars advocating for these convicted murderers to be set free. Not a dime has been allocated for victim outreach or support."
On the other end of the spectrum, Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins and her family are active opponents of the death penalty, believing that prevention is the key to alleviating the devastation of crime rather than execution.

When a relationship ends we need to allow a period of reflection, even grieving, before beginning a new one. But when the painful emotional wounds from the relationship have not healed, we bring fear of a repeat of pain with us into a potential new relationship. We may overreact to every little thing, arguing over every difference in opinion or misunderstanding, constantly on the defense and threatening to end the relationship before it even takes root. We attempt to shield oursselves from hurt, and as a result our repeated failed relationships become self fulfilling prophesies. We may fear rejection because of some fault or past mistake that may have been the cause of the previous breakup. How do we get past the past and start a new relationship without bringing baggage?
