She often returns to her hometown to visit her favorite deli for a bagel with butter, because there's no better bagel than a New York bagel.

She's also the owner of The Book Enthusiast blog.

    Reader's Entertainment Radio Show Presents: Tina DeSalvo

    in Books

    You'll want to tune in this Thursday, July 30th at 6pm EST. Author Tina DeSalvo joins me to chat about her books, life, and her Friend's Fight Together initiative. She enjoys writing stories where she can use her imagination, humor, empathy, and personal experiences to create characters and situations that she hopes will entertain readers. Her latest novel, Jewell: A Second Chance Novel, is Volume 2 in the series.


    Book Blurb:


    Once invited into New Orleans' historic mansions to evaluate prized antiques, Dr. Jewell Duet held a coveted professorship at a top university. With her deep knowledge of Louisiana history and antiquities, she was the go-to person for anyone requiring professional appraisals. But, one hasty decision cost her both her reputation and possibly her freedom. Now, as she waits to discover if her future includes prison, Jewell knows that taking the job at Sugar Mill is necessary if she is to support her beloved grandmother who has advanced dementia.

    Charming, sexy lawyer Beau Bienvenu's attraction to the intriguing historian vies with his distrust of her motives. Beau has one simple goal when it comes to the family that rescued him and made him part of their clan...protect them at all costs. He doesn't trust Jewell, nor her reason for taking the lowly job at Sugar Mill Plantation. What is she really up to? Is it possible Jewell and her quirky grandmother are there to try to profit from a Bienvenu family mystery? If so, both women are out of luck.

    Jewell and Beau are at odds about almost everything. The only things they agree on are that family is everything...and that their mutual attraction is inconvenient.


    Hope, Love and Second Chances Continue in the heart of Cajun Country.

    Author Robert Wintner shares his life lessons and insights from books and biogra

    in Lifestyle

    Author Robert Wintner shares his life lessons and insights from books and biography....1969 & Then Some and Brainstorm.


    1969 was that pivotal year for the baby boomers. Young and innocent, they were given the ultimate freedoms and were faced with growing up.


    This touching, hilarious memoir is the true story of a late sixties grand tour of Europe—a life- defining parable, for those who remember and for those who can’t. Never before and not since have a handful of seasons so exquisitely defined the difference between right and wrong. With the gift of youth they saw, sensed, and savored the laughably clear distinction between profit motive and greed, between truth and propaganda, between national interest and defense contractors, between a lovely cloud of smoke and the smoke of napalm, and between the phantoms of security and the dangers of complacency and atrophy.


    Stoned to the gills and then some, these


    adventurers saw and felt and knew things that no generation before did. Some fully engaged in the counterculture while others merely observed, sticking


    a left foot in, pulling a left foot out, but not quite jumping to the full hokeypokey.
    It was an incredible time of self-discovery, of love, and of finding out what you were made of.
