Soul Sale: A Rude Awakening Book Excerpt

Posted by Rebecca on December 15, 2015 in Uncategorized |
Soul Sale from AmazonAbout Americus Dotter Americus Dotter was an ovum donor for many fertility clinics across the United States including Yale University, and helped many couples achieve their goal of creating a family. Stem cell research and the ethics surrounding it are one of her primary concerns. Her book, Soul Sale, is the raw story of spiritual warfare that she experienced in 2008 following the birth of her own child. It is an example of "quantum psychiatry," a term that is gaining popularity and support in the psychiatric community. Quantum psychiatry is thought to be where spirituality and science meet to expose unproven realities. In a time where the transhuman agenda is beginning to appear in headlines, the ethics surrounding stem cell research must be discussed and unintended consequences of our knowledge should be examined.

caught-deirdrethurstonAbout Caught A collection of short stories, literary sketches and vignettes each capturing a moment in the life of someone a lot like you. Each story delves into human themes: expectation, desire, hope, loss, fear, joy, peace, suffering, redemption. The narrative is filled with subtle irony, humour and touching observations. The stories highlight our era of increasing social disconnection, in which technology is replacing intimacy and life occurs at a pace that challenges people’s ability to stop, observe and interpret their own existence and its relationship with those around them. It highlights the everyday moment and provides nourishment for the harried soul. The overriding message in Caught is: that any moment in every life can be viewed as worthy of treasuring. Whether that moment is filled with despair or joy; they provide entertaining relief and nourishing benefits. Read a Sample   Facebook   Website   Twitter   Follow the Author’s Tour   Amazon

Seven Random Things about Murder in the Worst Degree

Posted by Rebecca on May 9, 2014 in Featured, Uncategorized |
Murder in the Worst Degree Marilyn MI had the title before I knew what the plot was going to be. A friend said, “Why don’t you call your next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, Murder in the Worst Degree?” I thought that was a terrific title. Of course when I sat down to write the book, I had no idea where I was going with it. I had plenty of ongoing minor plots with the characters who appear in every book, but I had to come up with a murder that would qualify for being in the worst degree. I really wasn’t sure if I’d done that until I got near the end.    Because my series is based on the men and women in the police department, there must be more than one crime. Besides the murder, there’s also a rapist on the loose, and a couple of burglaries. And of course, you’ll also learn about
