    Books and Entertainment Tales From the Pages Welcomes One Author and Two Poets

    in Books

    On Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 4pm Eastern time host Barbara Ehrentreu welcomes an old friend, Heather Haven, who is an author of several books and was on the show last year around this same time to talk about her book, The Christmas Trifle.. James Rothlein was supposed to be on last month's show but technology wasn't working and he couldn't coonnnect. Hopefully all will go well this time and we will have him here. James has two books out and is a poet. I think when you hear them you will find his poems are delightful, thought provoking and concise. Timothy Payton is a colleague from Motivational Strips and a friend as well as an author and a poet. He has a new book out called, Scattered Colors about which he will be talking. As always there might be some surprises. Listeners who are serious may call in with questions or comments for the guests. If you miss the live show you can hear it in archives later.

She’s her boss's secret weapon to get information from his enemies and destroy them. But this latest assignment might prove to be the hardest one she’s ever faced. Isak Jekyll is like no other. When she looks into his eyes, it’s like someone else, or rather, something else, is staring back at her. The things he does to her mind and body have her questioning who or whom is seducing who? The man, the beast and the woman they love.  Who will be left standing?

    in Books

    After years of steady work in film and television, and over 150 credits on his IMDB page, actor and comedian Jason Stuart has achieved a pinnacle of success many actors only dream of. “For the last few years, people have started to approach me and say, ‘You’re that guy,’” he explains with his characteristic gravelly laugh. Indeed, with guest-starring and supporting credits in everything from the Billy Bob Thornton starrer "Goliath" to Judd Apatow’s “Love” to “Sleepy Hollow” to “Tangerine” and “The Birth of a Nation,” Stuart has now established himself as one of those all-too-familiar faces who might just pop up anywhere.

    Go Deep by Rilzy Adams-Women On Words October Book Club

    in Books

    Welcome to Women On Words, Season 2, Episode #2
    Go Deep by Rilzy Adams is the October Book Club selection: 
    It was all supposed to be so simple.
    Navaya Howard is an erotic writer in a rut. Her readers are fed up of her stale plots and Navaya can’t blame them. She’s been celibate for over a year and a half since finding her now ex-boyfriend’s side chick’s positive pregnancy test on her bathroom counter. How can she write steamy romances if she can barely remember which body parts go into the other?  Navaya enlists the help of her best friend, Xander, to revive the inspiration that used to have her sitting comfortably at the top of her game. What happens when the sex hits deeper than either of them expected and the tender emotions can no longer be denied? 
    Navaya and Xander’s arrangement has gone far deeper than intended.  Will their friendship and their hearts survive the fall?
    Rilzy Adams needs only five things to survive: sushi, coffee, Prosecco, cuddles and words (though not in that order).  She's a lawyer by day - writer by 'whenever she can get the free time' and believes that love makes the world go 'round. It is no small wonder, then, that she can't help but pen tales of people falling in love.
