    Inspiring Christian Fiction with Buck Storm & Karen Prough on Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott interviews two Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas authors, Buck Storm and Karen Campbell Prough.


    Buck Storm grew up in Yuma, Arizona—a true son of the American Southwest. He's marked time as a commercial diver, fisherman, sailor, and musician. As a singer/songwriter and purveyor of tales, he's bounced around the planet with a guitar and a pocketful of stories and has made friends in venues across the country. Whether lyrics or prose, Buck writes about this mixed-up, out of control, beautiful cacophony we call humanity. Buck and his wife Michelle have a happy love story, a hideout in North Idaho, and two wonderful children. The Miracle Man is his first novel.


    Karen Campbell Prough grew up with a love for old books and steadfast characters. She spent some of her childhood entertaining younger brothers with short stories created by a wild imagination. She and her husband Edward have often camped in the Georgia Mountains, and there she placed the characters of her first book, The Girl Called Ella Dessa.

    That's Novel Interview with Author Cassandre Dayne

    in Books

    Stephanie's interview with Cassandre Dayne will air on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.  You can find Cassandre's books on Amazon here:  http://amzn.to/1JgKWCV. 


    About Cassandre Dayne:


    Cassandre started writing stories and poems before she knew how to ride a bike and proceeded onto novels by age eleven. By the time she was an early teenager, she had written fifteen novels. As early adulthood, college and life settled in; writing was placed on the back burner but never forgotten entirely. Suddenly awakened by the rampant fantasies and untold stories of characters that flowed through her dreams every night and filtered into her daylight hours; she could hold back the creative process no longer.
    Cassandre writes highly erotic romance stories and novels in the contemporary, science fiction and paranormal flavors. Currently she has over fifty erotic romance novels published with Rebel Ink Press and several more under contract. 
    In addition, as her alter ego Bethany Halle, she is the host of the Edge on the World of Ink Network (a Blog Talk station) - taking authors to the very edge of their creative works.


    Cassandre is the Managing Director of both the Entice and Edge lines for Booktrope Publishing.

    Tell me, can you dare to take the plunge and enjoy a touch of the wicked?
