    KELLY O'CONNELL AM LAS CRUCES 1450: Barela Grand Jury

    in Politics

    DONALD TRUMP -- BADLY WOUNDED IN IOWA? Despite being a newcomer with all the pitfalls, it came as a shock to many that the Donald has feet of clay. But is Trump, as one journalists states “Badly Wounded”? Of course, only time will tell. But in the short term anything that outs a dent in his invincibility harms a newcomer whose entire argument is natural genius applied in a practical way to American political problems. SOUND FAMILIAR?
     


    In the meantime, NH beckons. A completely different race, not as religious, NH voters can restore the golden glow to Trump’s magnificent blonde combover. But now he must be aware it’s a sudden trifecta. The Prez--Pocolypse of ‘16 is like no other race with Trum, Cruz, Rubio...and the two-headed monster -Hill-Bern.


    Trump must be cursing his luck over Iowa. he’s now fighting back and swearing like a sailor. But will he learn his lessons from Ruby & Cruz’s campaigns and their ad blitzes and dedicated volunteers? Odds say he will.


     


    Meanwhile, back at the ranch...Chris Barela is starting to get his day in court with a Grand Jury eager, or at least ready to hear his charges. Will the diminutive jailer be indicted? Will he be subjected to a lengthy high-profile trial? Will he be possibly incarcerated in his own jail -- where, much like Jonathan Swift, the mad Irish novelist and social reformer, locked up in the nuthouse he years earlier demanded be built? Stay tuned sportsfans...

    That's Novel Interviews Authors Ellie Keys and Samantha Chase

    in Books

    Ellie Keys is an author of contemporary romance, paranormal romance and mystery. She spends a great deal of her time lending her unrelenting pen to the voices that have taken over her mind. The characters that readers will find in her works have a demanding nature. Ellie is thrilled to be able to share the stories from the wealth of works that she has created. Her loves outside of writing are reading a good book and losing herself in a great movie. Inspiration comes from everything around her. She invites you to follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest or look her up on her website: authorelliekeys.wix.com/novelist She can also be found on Amazon at:  http://amzn.to/1RFysg3


     


    New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. 

    When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina. http://amzn.to/1KGeJFo
