    Legendary author Brenda Novak LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

     Pam Stack and guest host Deborah Coonts welcome the legendary best-selling and award-winning author Brenda Novak for Women Writers Month in honor of Women's History Month.


    In Brenda's own words:  “When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda admits. “I learned how to write by reading what others have written. The best advice for any would-be author: read, read, read….”     Brenda sold her first book and the rest is history. Many of her novels have won or placed in contests such as the National Reader’s Choice, the Bookseller’s Best, the Write Touch, the Award of Excellence and the Beacon Award for Published Authors. When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually working on her annual fundraiser for diabetes research—an on-line aucttion held at her website May 1st – May 31st. Her youngest son, Thad, has diabetes, and Brenda is determined to help him and others like him. She also enjoys traveling, watching sporting events and biking–she rides an amazing 20 miles every day!  http://brendanovak.com.

    ABOUT JACKIE:  


    I'm Jacqueline Garlick, author of young adult and new adult fiction. I love strong heroines, despise whiny sidekicks, and adore a good story about a triumphant underdog. (Doesn't everyone?) I have an on-going love/hate relationship with chocolate, grammar, and technology? I prefer creating things to cleaning things, and I love cinnamon tea. There will always be tea. 

    I've been called the Quentin Tarantino of YA, because of my edgy, risk-taking, Tim Burton-esque style writing. I've also been called Little Erin, because of my passion for righteousness. In my former life I was a teacher, so you'll have to excuse that. To find out more about me, and other exciting writing adventures click: www.jacquelinegarlick.com, and be sure to sign up for my NEWSLETTER and get your free read while you're there!

    Don Bruns, author, musician, storyteller LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes multi-talented author Don Bruns.  Don Bruns is a novelist, advertising executive, musician, songwriter, cook and painter who has no idea what he wants to do when he grows up. He's the author of nine books and was editor of the mystery/music anthology A Merry Band Of Murderers. 

    Don's published novels cover two series. One, a Caribbean thriller collection and two, the Stuff series, a humorous look at two twenty-four year old guys in South Florida who start their own detective agency and end up neck - deep in trouble. Skip and James from the Stuff series have often been compared to grown up versions of the Hardy Boys.

    Jamaica Blue, Barbados Heat, South Beach Shakedown, St. Barts Breakdown and Bahama Burnout make up the Caribbean books. The Stuff series consists of Stuff To Die For, Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, Stuff To Spy For, and Don't Sweat The Small Stuff- which came out in December 2010. Bruns is currently working on the fifth Stuff book, Too Much Stuff. His two series have won numerous awards, and the latest "Stuff" series has won a starred review in Booklist. "Will remind the reader of Tim Dorsey's cast of whacked-out characters but with the narrative voice and feel of Mark Twain's Huck Finn."   Traveling the Caribbean for his Mick Sever series, or hovering around Miami for his "Stuff" series, Bruns enjoys the writing life. You can find him at http://www.donbrunsbooks.com

    You name the mystery - Elaine Viets writes it. LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Next in the Women Writers Month series is Elaine Viets, Florida resident who enjoys writing all kinds of mysteries.  This is what she says about herself:  


    It’s midnight on a moonless night in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From my office window I see boats with no running lights slipping down the Intracoastal Waterway. What illegal cargo are they carrying: drugs, guns, people? I’ve used them all in my Dead-End Job mysteries. Across a canal, my window overlooks a million-dollar condo where mysterious neighbors hold parties in the dead of night. Everyone dresses in black evening clothes. They became the inspiration for my short story, “Vampire Hours.” South Florida is the setting for my Dead-End Job mysteries and many short stories. It’s the inspiration that feeds my dark side. One of my snowbird neighbors turned out to be a drug dealer. I should have known that a pilot didn’t make enough money to own a Porsche, a Harley, a state-of-the-art sound system, a house and a beachside condo unless he was flying in a very special cargo. I had no idea he was a drug dealer until he didn’t return to Florida one winter. My roots are in the Midwest, where I set my other mystery series. http://elaineviets.com
