The Division One Series Debuts!

Standard

Cereal Authors

stephanie osborn alpha omegaStephanie Osborn, aka the Interstellar Woman of Mystery, former rocket scientist and author of acclaimed science fiction mysteries, goes back to the urban legend of the unique group of men and women who show up at UFO sightings, alien abductions, etc. and make things…disappear…to craft her vision of the universe we don’t know about. Her new series, Division One, chronicles this universe through the eyes of recruit Megan McAllister, aka Omega, and her experienced partner, Echo, as they handle everything from lost alien children to extraterrestrial assassination attempts and more.

Dr. Megan McAllister was already a pretty unique human — NASA astronaut, professional astronomer, polymath — when she encountered the man in the black Suit that night in west Texas. What Division One Agent Echo didn’t know, when he recruited her to the Agency, was that she was even more special.

But he’d find out, soon enough.

Review of Dead Men Don’t Swing by Karen Vaughan

Dead Men Don't SwingLaura Fitz is at it again! Cookie the Corpse Magnet can’t seem to stop this propensity for finding dead bodies. The fact that she finds this one is lying in the dumpster, isn’t really her fault. She’s doing an assignment for her crime scene investigations class, when she comes across the body of Dennis, a resident in the apartment building. Once again, Laura becomes embroiled in an investigation that brings her to the brink of disaster. Her long suffering hunk of a husband, Gerry, can’t keep up—poor guy!

Karen Vaughan’s cozy mystery, Dead Men Don’t Swing, is a wonderfully entertaining read. Her characters are funny, quirky and full of life. Her stories are top notch and full of sarcastic humor.

Vaughan has delivered another villain to loathe in the person of Missy Sawyer. Fortunately for Laura, Missy is more cocky than capable. I love following the antics of Laura…

Father’s Day ~ Martin Mulroy

Cereal Authors

As we honor all of the dads around the world, I have to brag about mine, Martin Mulroy. I can not begin to tell you all of the sacrifices he has made over the years for our family, but I can describe a few.

A British Royal Marine, he learned the art of discipline at a very young age and taught all of us the same. From early morning workouts, keeping things tidy, a strong work ethic and leadership skills, the life lessons he instilled in us as children, teens, and young adults continue to be a part of our daily lives. And I can honestly say I still learn new things from this man.

As a young Marine, practically a kid himself, he sent his paycheck home to his mother to help support the family. He loved being a Marine, and like those before him, and currently, serving his…

Notable Narrative from Alton & Velda by Dellani

Standard

Sci-Fi and Fantasy by Dellani

alton croppedI have to admit a distinct fondness for Alton. He’s confident, self-possessed and not afraid to stand up to protect friends and family. A wood sprite, he’s lived far longer than he looks, but let there be no doubt in anyone’s mind – he’s a formidable opponent. Only the very foolish cross him. It would seem that the tavern keeper of the inn where they spent the night, is one of these. His friend, Revanth, is a man made horse by an evil witch.

“Where’s my horse?” Alton demanded. “I left him here, in your care, last night. Where is he?”

“What sort of horse, good sir?” The groom appeared somewhat touched in the head. His speech was slow and deliberate.

Alton wasn’t sure the man understood him, but he described Revanth in detail.

The groom shook his head. “Warn’t narry sech horse here when I come to work dis…

Introducing That’s Quite a Character!

That's Quite a Character

Some characters speak more loudly than their companions. Others stand out because of their silence and gentle spirit. Whatever their mannerisms, vocal pitch, conversational filters (or lack thereof), there are some I love more than others. Don’t get me wrong, I’m fond of my characters, even the bad ones, but I do play favorites.

I decided it would be fun to share a little character sketch of my favorites, each picked for something that makes her or him outstanding in some way. I will share one a month, on the third Friday. I hope you enjoy this series of posts, because I’m having a good time putting them together. Watch this space July 21 for the first installment of That’s Quite a Character! By Dellani Oakes.

Some of the characters to look forward to:

Alvin Ripley – Room 103 – A Marice Houston Mystery

Aileen Griffin – Conduct Unbecoming –…
