Fire's Ice by Brynna Curry

Elemental Magic - Book 5

Ultimate power, or endless love?


Born the son of a Scottish laird a thousand years ago, but now trapped by his cousin's spell, Devin McLoch has seen countless battles and death. The erstwhile thief has turned away from darker pursuits to lead a life of peace, protecting those he loves and considers part of his clan. However, there is one woman he can never forget, who must be given a chance to change, to accept her heart and his.

Arianne Farrell is just as dangerous and intoxicating as her power. Imprisoned in an ancient stone dance more than a thousand years ago, her only chance at freedom from the spell is through love--a love she denied. When Devin asks for her aid to save another from imminent death, she realizes there is more at stake than just her freedom or her heart.

Unofficially--I'm a southern girl from Alabama who dreamed of being an author. I grew up all over the south from Tennesee to Mississippi and back to Alabama again. I always loved to tell stories as a kid. I was the shy type, you know, the book worm all the cheerleaders torment during school, so books were my escape, my sanctuary.

At sixteen, I met my high school sweetheart, a football player with a black belt in karate (imagine that) from a neighboring school. At seventeen a month before my high school graduation, our son was born and I put my dreams on hold. Through sheer grit and alot of help from my family, I got my diploma and enrolled in college with a grant as a Cosmetology student. I would have rather taken journalism classes or something writing related, but it was more important to provide for my son and help my fiance finish school so I chose a quick program.

Between work, the baby, and full time college classes that I hated, I buckled under the pressure and dropped out and entered the school of LIFE, opting to work full time and be with my baby. In '95 on my birthday our oldest daughter was born, followed by another daughter in '98. My dream of writing was lost in a shuffle of work, bottles, diapers and survival.

I kept making up stories, but they remained in my head and on random pieces of scratch paper. Then in 2002, my husband caught the flu. It was such a violent strain and didn't respond to fast working antibiotics. While in the hospital, he was diagnosed with type two diabetes. For three weeks, I watched over him day and night, giving medicine and trying to give him enough fluids to stay hydrated. He doesn't remember those weeks; he was unconscious for most of it.

I starting writing again and researching his illness during those early morning hours to keep from going crazy with worry.

A lot has happened since then, the kids are teenagers and my time is more my own. Writing has always given me such peace and knowing. My characters that were once silent refuse to leave me until I tell their story and they live in a world of paranormal chaos.

Brynna Curry is my sweet alter ego specializing in light paranormal romance and suspense. The third book in my Elemental Magic series will release January 17th, 2011.

Brianna Roarke is my bloodthirsty alter ego, dabbling in dark paranormal romance. Gypsy Moon, a werewolf novella, is available now with Red Rose Publishing and through Amazon of course.
So, now I write because I love it. I judge writing contests because I enjoy helping others. I review books of all sorts for You Gotta Read Reviews, moderate their guest blog and website, and serve as the review editor for Apollo's Lyre. I still work as a secretary for great bunch of people.
Tada gar irraccht. Nothing without effort.

Blessings,
Brynna

My Review


It’s been a while since I’ve sat down with a magical mystical story and it was a nice change of pace. And, being of Scottish decent, I love reading stories about the Scottish lairds. 

The author wove together a fairytale of two kindred spirits, and while possessing an abundance of pride that gets in the way more often than not, the characters also possess a deep ability to love, and in the end it shines through.

I thought the author did a great job with the story line. It was definitely a page-turner. After a little exploring, I found out that there are four books that precede this one. Having started out with the end and enjoying the book, I am left wanting to grab the other four and start from the beginning. I love a series and this promises to be a great one.

I am giving this book five stars. For those of you who enjoy magical stories, I am sure you will enjoy this one.

Redemption on the River by Loren DeShon (Review)

Redemption on the RiverSilas Jacobson pulled a trigger, killed his father, and ended up months later face down in Memphis mud, trying to forget the girl who betrayed him. He buries his father on the farm, his guilt in himself and leaves home seeking to forget past mistakes. He travels on Mississippi steamboats and meets his best friend in a brawl, his worst enemy in a cat-house, and a mentor and lover at a New Orleans faro table. Fighting, fornicating, and cheating at cards are a grand time, but there's another woman, a girl on a mission of her own, who saves his life and offers the opportunity to redeem himself. Silas staggers out of the mud to go to her, but he finds that she's deceived him from the start. He'll risk his neck for her—he owes her that much—but love is no longer possible. His shot at redemption comes down to his conscience, the two women, a poker game, and the turn of a card. Redemption on the River is historical fiction set along the Mississippi River in 1848.

Guest Post:


Donna, our kind host here at My Life in Stories, thought it might be interesting for me to relate how a former U.S. Navy fighter pilot came to be a writer of historical fiction.  I don’t guarantee interestingness (how’s that for a word?), but I can offer the story of my stories.

I’ve been a voracious reader since I can remember and I’ve always enjoyed writing, but aside from an occasional creative writing class I never studied it in school.  I graduated from Stanford with a BA in Economics—a degree I employ on a daily basis in my current real job as an airline pilot—and I set out to conquer the business world at Peat Marwick, one of the largest accounting firms in the world.  That’s right, I became a CPA.

After two years of auditing corporations I was less than excited at the prospect of decades of balance sheets stretching away before me.  A career change was in order, and I joined the Navy in the hope of becoming an aviator and getting to play with their marvelous toys.  After a lot of hard work, and great good fortune, I became perhaps the only CPA-fighter pilot in the world when I received orders for the F-18 Hornet.  I flew from five different carriers, accumulated 278 carrier landings (“traps”), and flew 27 combat missions in Gulf War I.

After my fleet tour I flew for three years based in Fallon, Nevada as an Adversary pilot in the F-18 and F-5.  My obligation to the Navy was up, I wanted to spend more time with my family, and I regretfully left the world of pointy-nosed go-fasts to take a job driving 737’s for Alaska Airlines, where I am today.

Where was writing in all this?  Simmering on the back burner, I’m afraid.  I did some writing for classified technical Navy publications (cue the tired old “I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you” joke), wrote some short stories that I showed only to a select few, and had a couple of magazine articles published.  Oh, and I also wrote (and still write) an annual Christmas letter that people tell me they look forward to.

I had always had in the back of my mind that I’d like to write a novel someday, and when a squadron buddy asked me to review the manuscript of a thriller he had written the latent idea began to develop.  I did nothing about it until one epiphanic day when I realized that I had to get off the pot and actually do it, or wait for the next lifetime to give it a go.

So, I summoned up my ambition, climbed aboard my motivation, and set myself the goal of writing a novel in one year.  I absolutely did not want to be one of those wannabe novelists who drags it out for four or five years.

Five years later Redemption on the River was complete.  My process of writing the book—and learning how to write a book—is far beyond the scope of this meandering essay, but I did accomplish my primary goal, which was to write the best possible novel of which I was capable.  It’s one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done, ranking right up there with my first carrier landing.

Notes from the Firehouse b y D.E. McCourt

Notes from the Firehouse: Seventeen Firefighting Stories from a Retired FirefighterA memoir from a retired firefighter about firefighting, rescue calls and life around the firehouse. 

It's not all about fire - that's lesson number one. 
No, it's a collection of things: assisting an injured person at three o'clock in the morning, calming a child in a traumatic situation, saving the belongings of a family from the ravages of a fire, seeing people in every heartbreaking situation imaginable and trying to help them, while not losing yourself in the process.

And it's about the insanity found in the firehouse - to the author it's the Cracker Factory - and the politics and pettiness that try unsuccessfully to steal the joy from the job. This book is the blue-collared view of a career firefighter. 

The seventeen stories in Notes from the Firehouse take the reader on a journey with the everyday firefighter from his first days as a rookie, to his last fire that prematurely sends him into retirement.


A Note from the Author, Doug McCourt


Most people that read “Notes from the Firehouse” are surprised to learn that firefighters respond to a very broad spectrum of challenges. Firefighting isn’t always about fighting fires, although it’s about that too. Right from the start I realized it wasn’t anything like the Hollywood stereotypes. I never saw a Dalmatian in a firehouse or saw a burning automobile explode like an incendiary bomb and there was a lot more down time and false alarms than I expected. 

But somewhere in every city or town there is a small drama playing out; it might not make the papers, but to the individuals involved it’s a serious event. As a firefighter you respond to hundreds of these calls, then thousands; eventually you’re confronted with every situation imaginable, but it’s the poignant ones that you remember - indelible pictures of chaotic scenes that “take a little piece of you.” My goal was to give the reader a realistic peek into that looking glass world.

 I also give a few examples of how random and unpredictable the job can be, sometimes it involved capturing runaway parrots, evicting vagrant bats, extricating small dogs from snow-blowers, and extinguishing brush fires while being bombarded with golf balls. Of course, there are a few stories about that special brand of insanity that’s found in the firehouse – some of us called it the Cracker Factory. 

I entered into the world of firefighting with thoughts of burning buildings and dramatic rescues, but it was these subtle human dramas that made the work of a firefighter so interesting and rewarding.

My Review

When I was asked to review Notes from the Firehouse, I really had no idea what to expect. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. The stories are heartwarming and give insight to what the fire fighters encounter on and off the job. 

The book began with a wonderful story about the author's father which will bring tears to your eyes. I enjoyed that the book was a culmination of stories and allowed the reader to find a place in which to put the book down and pick it up at a later time, not having forgotten their place in a story. The stories are written with honesty and raw emotion.

The book told the stories of a day in the life of a real fire fighter, and as we are educated, we find that it is not always what we see on television. Who knew fire fighters would be called in to catch a bat or rescue a wayward bird from a tree? And while most of us think of fire fighters out fighting house fires, it is the little things, the little rescues that truly show the heart and soul of these men and women. 

One of the stories that had me laughing until I had tears in my eyes was picturing a fire fighter knocking around and breaking things in a closed room, all while trying to contain a bat, and who's very actions seemed to curtail further requests to capture bats. 

This book would be a great gift for anyone, especially with Christmas coming up. It is like a little chicken soup for the soul as you follow one fire fighter's days on the job from rookie to retirement.

Guest Post by Pamela Samuels Young

A brutal murder, missing documents and an unscrupulous opposing counsel lead attorney Vernetta Henderson on a quest for justice—and ultimately—revenge. The hotshot L.A. lawyer takes on a corporation with a long history of discriminating against women. 

While Vernetta simply wants justice for her clients, the corporation’s hired gun wants to win . . . and she doesn’t care how. On the home front, Vernetta’s infamous sidekick Special has finally found true love. But is the price more than she’s willing to pay?








Pamela Samuels Young
 is a practicing attorney whose fast-paced legal thrillers tackle law and crime. Her novels include "Attorney-Client Privilege," "Murder on the Down Low" and "Buying Time." Her short story "Easy Money" is featured in the anthology "Scoundrels: Tales of Greed, Murder and Financial Crimes." 









Guest Post by Pamela Samuels Young

Pursue Your Passion!
People often ask me how I went from attorney to author. Although I majored in journalism in college and spent several years working as a television news writer, I never gave any thought to writing fiction. I’ve always been a voracious reader, and when I finished law school in my early thirties, I developed a passion for reading legal thrillers. Unfortunately, I never saw women or people of color depicted as attorneys in any of the books I read. I would close the novels feeling satisfied with the story, but disappointed about the lack of diversity of the characters. So one day, I decided that I would write a legal thriller with the kind of characters I wanted to see. In the process, I discovered my passion!

At the time, I was an associate at a large corporate law firm in Los Angeles.  Despite the demands of my law practice, I somehow managed to get up at four in the morning to squeeze in a couple of hours of writing before work. I wrote in hotels, in airports, in the office late at night—whenever and wherever I could find the time.  I never really had a true passion in my life until I discovered mystery writing.  I’m currently practicing law as an in-house employment attorney for a large corporation, yet I’ve still managed to publish five novels over a six year period. Nothing short of passion made that possible.
Whether your dream is to write a novel, start your own business, or go back to school, youcan make it happen. Here are some tips that will help you begin your journey.
1. Find Time To Plan Your Passion
With the demands of work, family, church and community activities, you may think you don’t have a spare moment to even think about, much less pursue, your dream career. You’re wrong. More than a few best-selling authors found time to write despite family demands and busy careers.  Before they were household names, John Grisham and James Patterson wrote in the mornings before heading off to work.  Mary Higgins Clark wrote late at night after putting her five children to sleep.  You can do it too!
It won’t be easy, but you can find free time where you least expect it. The next time you’re taking a neighborhood jog or walking on the treadmill, use the time to think about possible locations for the business you’ve dreamed of opening or mull over the plot for that book you’ve wanted to write. Instead of listening to your favorite CD during your morning and evening commute, use the time to work on your business plan. Your lunch break and the two to three hours you spend in front of the television can also be put to good use. With your family’s support, you might even find an evening or two to run off to your local library or a nearby Starbucks for some passion-planning time. Even if it’s only an hour a week, use it.
 2. Don’t Reinvent The Wheel
 You may not realize it, but you have a multitude of resources all around you—family, friends, colleagues, church members, and even strangers. Don’t be afraid to request an informational interview. If you want to run a bed ‘n breakfast, call up the owners of a similar establishment in another community, invite them to lunch and tap their brain. People love to talk about themselves and many will be flattered that you want to ask them for advice. The Internet is also a valuable resource. You can enter a few key words on Google and YouTube and find loads of helpful resources. Just remember: research, research, research!
 3. Join Professional Organizations
 It’s a good idea to surround yourself with others who share your interests and passion. There are hundreds of professional groups whose sole function is to help their members develop their creative talents and realize their business goals. As a writer, I belong to Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America and Romance Writers of America. I don’t make the meetings on a regular basis, but when I do, I always learn something or make some contact that helps me along in my writing career.  No matter what your passion is, there’s bound to be a networking group you can join.
4. Understand That It Won’t Happen Overnight
Unfortunately, creative and entrepreneurial ventures don’t come with the guarantee of a regular paycheck.  I assumed that after releasing my first novel, Oprah would call and the rest would be history.  That has yet to happen. Somehow, I’m still balancing both my legal practice and my passion: writing legal thrillers. It can sometimes be quite stressful, but each time I release a new book, I’m re-energized and more committed than ever about reaching my goal of becoming a full-time writer. There will no doubt be disappointments when things don’t happen in accordance with your time schedule. Just remain faithful and focused on your goal. It willhappen.
5. Ignore The Naysayers
We all know people who believe you should find a good job, work as hard as you can for 30 years, then retire at 65 and enjoy life. For them, the thought of leaving a secure, well-paying position for the uncertainties of entrepreneurial life is unthinkable. That kind of limited thinking won’t help you realize your dream.
You have to decide what you want to do and go for it. And don’t be surprised if you turn out to be your biggest obstacle. When that happens, just look your self-doubt squarely in the face and command it to go away. The same degree of preparation and persistence that helped you land your current position will also help you smoothly transition into your dream career.
So don’t just dream about pursuing your passion, make it happen!

Attorney-Client Privilege by Pamela Samuels Young (Review, Giveaway)


I would like to welcome author Pamela Samuels Young to my blog today. 

A brutal murder, missing documents and an unscrupulous opposing counsel lead attorney Vernetta Henderson on a quest for justice—and ultimately—revenge. The hotshot L.A. lawyer takes on a corporation with a long history of discriminating against women. 

While Vernetta simply wants justice for her clients, the corporation’s hired gun wants to win . . . and she doesn’t care how. On the home front, Vernetta’s infamous sidekick Special has finally found true love. But is the price more than she’s willing to pay?

A Los Angeles attorney, Pamela Samuels Young has always abided by the philosophy that you create the change you want to see.

N.Y. Times bestselling author Sheldon Siegel describes Buying Time, Pamela's first stand-alone novel, as a "deftly plotted thriller that combines the best of Lisa Scottoline and Robert Crais."

A former journalist, Pamela is a graduate of USC, Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America and is the Fiction Expert for BizyMoms.com. 

Pamela is a frequent speaker on the topics of discrimination law, diversity, writing and pursuing your passion. To contact Pamela for a speaking engagement, book club meeting or to read an excerpt of her books, visit www.pamelasamuelsyoung.com.

My Review

I absolutely loved the book. The characters are real and jump right off the page. The African/American dialogue is spot-on. The suspense in the book keeps you turning the pages long after your eyes are drooping from the late hour. I couldn't put the book down once I began reading.

The author's legal background brings an authenticity to the story that might not otherwise be there. I loved the main protagonist, Vernetta Henderson, and had not realized that this is a series. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. I have quickly become a fan of both Pamela Samuels Young and attorney Vernetta Henderson. 

What I liked about the book? Everything. The story flowed. The dialogue flowed. It was intelligently written. The characters were great. The names of the characters - Girlie, Special - have definitely left me pondering what nickname I might choose for myself. 

What I didn't like about the book? Not one thing comes to mind. I really enjoyed this book - cover to cover.

Would I recommend this book? Definitely!

Into the Dark by Stacy Green

Stacy Green Guest Post

I’m really excited to visit Donna’s blog today and meet all of her readers. Many of you may not know me, so let me tell you a little bit about myself.

My husband and I have been married for thirteen years, and our little family consists of the two of us, our amazing first grader, and our three obnoxious dogs. You can imagine who comes first and last in the pecking order around here.

We live in Marion, Iowa, which is basically across the road from Cedar Rapids. No, we’re not surrounded by corn. Well, not entirely. It’s a few miles outside of town. We’re your typical Midwestern big-small town: about 100,000 people, four movie theaters, two shopping malls, decent amount of restaurants, some entertainment but not enough variety. It’s a safe place to live. But nothing too exciting happens.

Which is why I love to travel in my writing. I chose Las Vegas for the setting for INTO THE DARK I knew I was writing about a SWAT officer, and Las Vegas has one of the few full-time teams in the country. But I’ve also never been there, which meant I had a steep learning curve.

While I wasn’t able to jump on a plane and fly to Sin City, I did bury myself in research. Because INTO THE DARK isn’t about the normal glitz and glamour we associate with Vegas, I really had to dig in. My opening scenes take place in a bank, and the bad guys need an escape route. Searching for mob tunnels in Las Vegas led me to the discovery of the maze of storm drains stretching beneath the city. The system protects the city from flash flood, but it also serves as shelter for Las Vegas’s large homeless population.

At any given time, it’s estimated at least 200 people are living in the drains. Known as the Las Vegas tunnels, the drains are pitch black and stink of stagnant water, trash, and human waste. Its inhabitants are resourceful, creating their living areas in the higher area of the drains and often propping their belongings on crates, cinder blocks, and wood pallets. Some simply have a bed and a blanket, while others have created mini-apartments with makeshift showers, kitchenettes, and toilets. Most living below battle some sort of addiction, and many work the casino junket, trolling the slots for leftover credits. The most populated area is believed to be beneath the heart of the Strip.

Suddenly Las Vegas didn’t seem like such an amazing place to me. Homelessness is a real problem in this country, and it’s heartbreaking. But the idea of living in the storm drains, in constant danger of flash floods and criminal activity, struck a chord.

The Las Vegas tunnels were a perfect escape route for my book and added another layer to the story. Now, INTO THE DARK wasn’t just another mystery–it was a book with a message and social reminder. No matter how calm and serene our little corner of the world may be, there are always others in need.

Because of the inspiration from the storm drains and their inhabitants, the Charity Blog Tour for Into The Dark is about giving back. Readers can enter my Rafflecopter Contest for the chance to win the grand prize: a $100 donation from me to the homeless charity of their choice. The contest also allows participants to donate to HELP of Southern Nevada, the organization that assists those living in the drains and others in need in Las Vegas.

INTO THE DARK (digital and print November 30th)
IT’S THE MOMENTS FROM OUR PAST THAT BIND US.

Branch Manager Emilie Davis is having a day like any other–until two masked men storm into WestOne Bank demanding cash.  Her hopes of a quick end to her terror are dashed when she realizes one of the men has no interest in the bank’s money. Emilie is his prize, and he’s come to claim her.

When hostage negotiator Nathan Madigan and Las Vegas SWAT enter the bank on a rescue mission, Emilie’s captor makes a shocking escape into the abyss that lies beneath the city: the Las Vegas storm drains, a refuge for the downtrodden and the desperate.

HOW WILL IT END?

Who is the man the media has dubbed the “Taker?” Why is he after Emilie, and what is the connection he’s convinced they share?

Emilie can’t run from the Taker, and she can’t escape her own past. As her life closes in on her, she has nowhere to turn but to Nathan. The lines of professionalism blur as Nathan becomes determined to save Emilie. Together they venture into the depths beneath Las Vegas and discover a shocking piece of the puzzle.

But the Taker remains one step ahead. Desperate for the threat to emerge from the shadows, Emilie makes a bold move to reclaim her life, and it may cost her everything.
