The Fun Stuff:

What part of the world do you come from?

I was born in Nottingham, but spent my teenage years in Brentwood in Essex (before it became famous for TOWIE). After studying in York I came back to Nottingham, moved to Bristol for six years then back to Nottingham again. Nottingham is my home, it’s like a magnet that keeps drawing me back.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

An Air Hostess! Even though it’s not politically correct to call them that anymore. Other than that I wanted to be a recluse!

List three words to describe yourself.

Well avoiding the obvious anxiety related words I would say: Continue reading “Interview with Author, Gail Mitchell @GailMitchell42 #Author #Interview #wwwBlogs”

The Fun Stuff:

What part of the world do you come from?

I was born in Birmingham, U.K., but lived for most of my life in the West Midlands. I moved to Worcestershire when I married my husband, but still consider myself to be a Black Country lass and have the family history to prove it.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

There was never a clear career path in my mind, so I tried to keep my education quite general. After a business studies degree, I joined a large organisation and enjoyed being moved around the company. I worked in administration, committee services, training and management development. After sixteen years, I decided to train as a therapist and worked as a clinical hypnotherapist and Reiki Master for several years. I’ve always written as part of my job, be it press releases, reports or training materials, but found novel writing much later in my life.

Motivate Me! Oracle Guidebook #Motivation #Happiness

A couple of years ago I ran a series of workshops for ladies called ‘Motivate Me!’ They were so much fun to facilitate, and I received wonderful feedback from the attendees. Off the back of these, I created a set of Oracle cards with a motivational twist.

If you’ve never come across Oracle cards before then, allow me to fill you in. They are a close relation to tarot, however, in a traditional tarot deck, you get 78 cards split into 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana. With Oracle cards there is no set structure, some packs have 40 cards, and others have over 60.

Both tarot and oracle cards are used as a tool for guidance, encouraging a deeper connection. Ultimately they are used for entertainment purposes, but they can also offer profound answers to some of the complex questions we ask. Continue reading “Motivate Me!

The book launches on Friday 11th November and will be available as eBook and paperback.

I’ve loved every second of writing these books. Amber, Connor, and Redka have become a huge part of my life, and although I’ll be sad to see them go, they’ll always hold a very special place in my heart. I’ve been able to explore so many elements with these characters, incorporating many of my ‘day job’ skills such as meditation, energy healing, and my love of dragons!

#BookReview The Devil You Know by @TerryTyler4 #Thriller

Title: The Devil You Know

Author: Terry Tyler

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Category: Psychological Thriller

 the-devil-you-know

My Review:

‘Every serial killer is someone’s friend, spouse, lover or child…’

It’s a frightening thought that you could know someone capable of such atrocities as rape and murder.

In Terry Tyler’s latest novel, The Devil You Know, she expertly weaves fives stories/five lives around the brutal murders of a string of young women, leaving the reader feeling as scared, horrified, anxious and betrayed as her characters. Introduced to the five suspects via the point of view of the mother, wife, colleague, friend, and a teenager who are closest to them.

The Devil You Know is storytelling at its absolute best. Captivating, compelling and psychologically thrilling.

The author kept me guessing until the bitter end no matter how much I thought I’d cracked it, only to then be swayed once again.

My favourite part of the book is the final revelation and the way each suspect’s life story is wrapped up so beautifully.

I would highly recommend this novel.

Blurb:

Every serial killer is someone’s friend, spouse, lover or child….

Young women are being murdered in the Lincolnshire town of Lyndford, where five people fear someone close to them might be the monster the police are searching for. One of them is right.

Juliet sees an expert’s profile of the average serial killer and realises that her abusive husband, Paul, ticks all the boxes.

Maisie thinks her mum’s new boyfriend seems too good to be true. Is she the only person who can see through Gary’s friendly, sensitive façade?

Tamsin is besotted with her office crush, Jake. Then love turns to suspicion…

Steve is used to his childhood friend, Dan, being a loud mouthed Lothario with little respect for the truth. But is a new influence in his life leading him down a more sinister path?

Dorothy’s beloved son, Orlando, is keeping a secret from her—a chilling discovery forces her to confront her worst fears.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW is a character-driven psychological drama that will keep you guessing until the very end.

About the Author:

bMBCGi9O_400x400

Terry Tyler’s first Amazon publication, ‘You Wish’, won ‘Best Women’s Fiction’ in the eFestival of Words 2013, while short story collection ‘Nine Lives’ and family drama ‘Last Child’ have won other small online awards.

Terry is fascinated by the psychology behind relationships, and this forms the background of all her books. From the ‘is my husband/friend/son a serial killer?’ fears of the characters in her new release, ‘The Devil You Know’, to the dark and complex emotional tangles of ‘The House of York’, to the aspirations of several writers in ‘Best Seller, it’s all about the characters. And the plot twists…

Terry has a blog on which she writes around many topics (social networking, writing, nostalgia, TV and film). The link: http://www.terrytyler59.blogspot.co.uk/ . She also has a book review blog, on which you can find her own reading choices and those she reads as part of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team.

#TuesdayBookBlog Meet author, Stacy Bennett (@SBennettwrites) #Fantasy #NewRelease #BHCPress

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my love for all things vampire or werewolf related. You may also know about my fascination with history. So, when my next guest released a book about ancient Egyptian artifacts and werewolves, I was hooked! That book was Son of Anubis, and you can read my review HERE.

On the 8th October, fantasy author, Stacy Bennett released her latest novel, Quest of the Dreamwalker and I’m incredibly excited about this book, so excited in fact that I stalked her until she agreed to visit my blog! Over to Stacy…

The Fun Stuff:

What part of the world do you come from? 

I’m a Jersey girl, truly a denizen of suburbia. Before you ask: The exit is 120; we called it Taylor’s Ham not pork roll; and I didn’t learn to pump my own gas until I drove down to graduate school in Baltimore.  To my shame, I waited there quite a while before I figured out they weren’t going to come pump it for me.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Honestly, I really wanted to train animals for the movies, but that didn’t seem in any way practical.
