profile-pic_my-name-is-zoeHello Fans and Friends in the land of Zen! My name is Zoe and I write stories for your amusement. I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Emily and I send you our warmest wishes for health and happiness in the coming New Year. Wait! Now that I’ve put that down on paper, it occurs to me: That’s the silliest sentiment ever, isn’t it? I mean, why wish good health and happiness for only a year? I guess one could argue that the wishes get renewed every year, and so an annual greeting is just dandy, but, think about it. What if I got hit by a truck tomorrow? Just sayin’ . . .

Alrighty then, enough of that. I better get on with this month’s story, which I’d like to tell in a slightly different way. Every now and then, I fancy myself a poet – you know, kind…

Meryl Streep is my hero!

I vowed long ago to never get political on this blog, and I have forced myself not to say a word about how devastated I am by the Americans who voted for Donald Trump. But after reading Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes – regretting I missed hearing her – I can’t bite my virtual tongue any longer. She had the courage to stand up and say what I and many others think.

Moments ago I read Trump’s response on twitter. He called Streep “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.” OMG! The woman is one of the greatest actresses of all time.

Trump sickens me! The tactics he used to win the election are disgusting. He mocked a disabled reporter, race baited and encouraged violence at his rallies. Worse still, he cozied up to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, inviting the hacking that damaged Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning. I fear what he will do to this country over the next four years.

Okay, that’s the end of my rant. It may get me in hot water with some of you. So be it. This is a free country – for now at least – and I have the right, no, the responsibility to speak out against a man I do not trust with our future.

Now here’s a portion of Dianne’s review for Profiling Nathan:

“PROFILING NATHAN by Lyn Horner is another tantalizing tale of a special group of guardians who protect some of history’s greatest secrets as another Guardian finds that missing link in their life that only love can fill! Ms. Horner uses only the lightest touch of the paranormal, but it is just the perfect amount to add that special flavor to her tale of romance, intrigue and suspense. Two likable characters, warm moments stolen throughout, a deadly and twisted killer and the magic of love, it’s all in here!”

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

collaborative anthologies

Welcome to the new series showcasing collaborative anthologies by a number of authors.

As a lover of short stories I feel that a collection of short stories is a wonderful way for writers to showcase their work, but is also an excellent and cost effective bargain for the reader.

If you have contributed to an anthology in the last six months or so and would like to give it a bit more publicity then do read the submission guidelines so that I can do it justice.


To get the ball rolling and to show you how the format for this series will look, here is a recommended anthology from Patricia Salamone, author of The Italian Thing.


Patricia was a contributing author to A Quick Read – An A to Z Stories from around the World, compiled by author C.A. Simonson.

The concept of the book was very…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore Update -John W. Howell, D.G. Kaye and Lyn Horner

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Sally's Cafe and Bookstore Update

Welcome to my Cafe and Bookstore Update and the first author is John W. Howell.  My husband bought me all three of John’s book in December as part of my Christmas wish list and I made sure that I took the time to read My GRL the first in the series about John Cannon.

If I could just make a quick note about reviews. I do review every book that I read, but  unfortunately, whilst I do make time for this very essential part of my life, I cannot accept books for review.  There are some great reviewers on WordPress that I suggest you might approach and if you google ‘book review sites’ you should also get some good recommendations.

So here is my review for My GRL by John W. Howell.
