Ine ach city he also visited local nurseries to see exactly which plants were being sold, and how allergyfriendly (or not) they were. What he found surprised even him...

    Interview with Jordan McIntosh

    in Music

    After taking home the Rising Star Award at the 2014 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards, Jordan McIntosh continues to climb the ranks as one of Canada’s hottest new country stars. No stranger to the stage, the 19-year-old Ottawa native has toured with country stars Brett Kissel and, most recently, Emerson Drive. Additionally, he performed on the main stage at the third annual Boots and Hearts Festival in August. A top 6 finalist in the 2014 CCMA Discovery program, Jordan has been nominated for this year’s Rising Star Award at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards which will be held in Halifax (Sunday, September 13).

    Jordan’s first influence was his older sister, Melissa. “My entire family is musical, but I idolized my sister. She started to sing before I did and, being younger, I wanted to do everything she did. That’s how I found out I could sing. I never really studied music. I just sang all the time. I know there’s a one in a million chance that you can make a career of your ability to sing. That’s always kept me focused, but I couldn’t do any of this without my family.”

  • Suspense Radio One on One - August 16th, 2015

    in Books

    Suspense Radio One on One in partnered with Partners in Crime Tours, brings you 60 minutes of radio today with two fantastic authors. Suspense Radio One on One is brought to you by the Suspense Radio Network. www.suspenseradionetwork.com

    Dale Wiley "Sabotage": 

    Every hour explosions rock America. There is no rhyme or reason to where they appear: big cities, small towns, even rural backroads. The sinister message that suddenly appears on America's computer screens is clear: No one is safe:

    Not disgraced FBI agent Grant, awaiting his call back to the big time;
    Not rapper Pal Joey, an international sensation;
    Not savvy, stunning beauty Caitlin, the ultimate Sin City party girl;
    Not even Naseem, the would-be martyr who helped plan the attacks and now finds himself double-crossed.

    As an unhinged mastermind paralyzes a nation, these unlikely heroes must put aside their pasts and work together to stop him before more hours bring more disasters.

    All roads lead to Las Vegas, where the plan begins to unravel. Can four people, united only by their hatred of this singular villain, finally stop Sabotage?

    Susan Slater: "Hair of the Dog": 

    So simple. Five dogs dead by smoke inhalation, bagged, tagged, and cremated. Papers all in order. Ashes in specialty urns on the desk of Dixie Halifax, track and casino co-owner. In jail, a young employee charged with arson to cover a murder he's blamed for committing.

    Then the body of kennel owner Jackson Sanchez is found face down in a pool of blood, a knife stuck in his back. But Sanchez didn’t die from a knife wound. Someone has carved “thief” on his forehead. The blood pooled underneath his body isn’t his. Should Dan be looking for a second corpse? And the one man who can answer questions, the track vet, dies in a motorcycle accident.
