Special Guest Interview with Sue Parisher
Today’s interview was recorded in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month. Read on to learn more about my special guest. LTC (Ret.) Sue Parisher served twenty-one honorable years on active duty, living a double life of capability and accomplishment in the service while enduring brutality and abusiveness in her twenty-year oppressive marriage. The constant need to relocate due to Army orders every few years definitely contributed to her abuser’s ability to weaken her defenses against him. The atmosphere of military masculinity of the time and her daughter’s diagnosis of leukemia continually added gasoline to the horrors of her world. Today, Sue is happily married to a wonderful Christian man whose children and family have overwhelmingly welcomed her into their world. She has three unbelievable children who have been her inspiration and motivation during all these trying times. Her daughter’s cancer has been in remission for 15 years. Sue’s book is entitled Rock Bottom and Faithless: Defeating the Lies of Domestic Abuse with God’s Truth Purchase link: https://www.amazon.com/Rock-Bottom-Faithless-Defeating-Domesticebook/dp/B07W4X7WXP/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3MWTURH7OZ4B7&dchild=1&keywords=rock+b ottom+and+faithless&qid=1593359606&sprefix=rock+bottom+and+faith%2Caps%2C186&sr=8 -2 Connect with Sue at the following links: https://www.recoveringfromdomesticviolence.com/ https://www.facebook.com/SueParisherAuthor/ To subscribe to my newsletter and receive a free short story, please fill out my google form at: https://forms.gle/x8gtvDgqH56Zc3bt9 My poetry book entitled The Spirit of Creativity: Inspirational Poems for the Creative at heart can be purchased in a variety of eBook formats wherever books are sold.

Special Guest Interview with Ellwyn Autumn
Ellwyn Autumn is an American author/blogger and a certified teacher with a Master's Degree in Education. She writes children's picture books, middle-grade novels, and Young Adult fiction. Ellwyn's first self-published novel, Chris Kringle's Cops The First Mission, was a Finalist in the 2016 Reader's Favorite International Book Contest. Her Kamyla Chung picture book series addresses difficult issues facing young children. Kamyla Chung and the Classroom Bully is on Jedlie's Certified Great Reads List, earned Story Monster Approval as well as Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Medal. Ellwyn discovered her passion for writing in second grade when she had to write a book report for school. She was so excited to write the report, until her mother told her that she had to write about someone else's book and not her own story. Ellwyn became indignant and decided that once she finished the book report, she would most certainly write her own original story. She has been writing ever since! Ellwyn lives with her family in Pennsylvania. She loves all things magical, curling up with a good book, writing stories, and almost anything with chocolate in it. You can purchase her latest book entitled Teddy Bear Tea at: https://www.amazon.com/Teddy-Bear-Tea-Ellwyn-Autumn-ebook/dp/B08HKF2XFB/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1599827365&sr=8-1 Connect with Ellwyn at the following links: https://www.ellwynautumn.com/ https://www.facebook.com/ellwynautumnauthor/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRBbmeghJYUgldeJmal4TkA?view_as=subscriber https://www.instagram.com/ellwynautumn/ To subscribe to my newsletter and receive a free short story, please fill out my google form at: https://forms.gle/x8gtvDgqH56Zc3bt9 My poetry book entitled The Spirit of Creativity: Inspirational Poems for the Creative at heart can be purchased in a variety of eBook formats wherever books are sold.

Liz Johnson is the author of more than a dozen novels, including A Sparkle of Silver, A Glitter of Gold, The Red Door Inn, Where Two Hearts Meet, and On Love's Gentle Shore, as well as a New York Times bestselling novella and a handful of short stories. She works in marketing and makes her home in Phoenix, Arizona. Liz Johnson’s latest book is entitled, A Dazzle of Diamonds Description: Penelope Hunter loves her job as the events manager at one of Savannah's premier historic venues--until her ex-fiancé walks into her office with his new bride-to-be. To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is intent on seeing Penelope fired, especially if she insists on being seen with Tucker Westbrook. Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his friendship with Penelope, who has been by his side since childhood. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot--and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South. To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a 150-year-old lost treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job--and falling helplessly in love.

Special Guest Interview with Suzanne Woods Fisher
Carol award winner Suzanne Woods Fisher writes stories that take you to places you’ve never visited—one with characters that seem like old friends. But most of all, her books give you something to think about long after you’ve finished reading it. With over one million copies of her books sold worldwide, Suzanne is the best-selling author of more than thirty books, ranging from non-fiction books, to children’s books, to novels. She lives with her very big family in northern California. Suzanne’s new book is entitled: On a Coastal Breeze (book 2 of ‘Three Sisters Island’ series) Description: For Madison Grayson, life is good. Newly licensed as a marriage and family therapist, she can’t wait to start her practice. Despite the unfortunate shortage of eligible bachelors on the island—they’re all too young, too old, or too weird—Maddie feels like she’s finally found her sweet spot. Not even one panic attack in the last year. Not one. And then Ricky O’Shea drops in. Literally. Floating down from the pure blue sky, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again—the one who’d been her archnemesis from kindergarten through her senior dance—parachutes into town, landing on Boon dock, canopy draping behind him like a superhero. Ricky O’Shea. Now Pastor Rick, the new minister on Three Sisters Island. Time to panic.

She serves on the Fiction Readers Summit planning committee, volunteers her time at Ada Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and speaks at retreats and women's events across the country. Susie and her husband have three children and live in West Michigan. Susie’s featured book is entitled Stories That Bind Us Description: Betty Sweet never expected to be a widow at 40. With so much life still in front of her, she tries to figure out what's next. She couldn't have imagined what God had in mind. When her estranged sister is committed to a sanitarium, Betty finds herself taking on the care of a 5-year-old nephew she never knew she had. In 1960s LaFontaine, Michigan, they make an odd pair. Betty with her pink button nose and bouffant hair. Hugo with his light brown skin and large brown eyes. But more powerful than what makes them different is what they share: the heartache of an empty space in their lives. Slowly, they will learn to trust one another as they discover common ground and healing through the magic of storytelling.

Special Guest Interview with Bethany Turner
Bethany Turner is the award-winning author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey and the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. A former bank executive and a three-time cancer survivor (all before she turned 35), Bethany knows that when God has plans for your life, it doesn't matter what anyone else has to say. Because of that, she's chosen to follow his call to write. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Colorado, where she writes for a new generation of readers who crave fiction that tackles the thorny issues of life with humor and insight. Bethany’s featured book is entitled, Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish Description: Get ready for a heaping helping of humor, romance, and second chances Celebrity chef Maxwell Cavanagh is known for many things: his multiple Michelin stars, his top-rated Culinary Channel show, To the Max, and most of all his horrible temper. Hadley Beckett, host of the Culinary Channel's other top-rated show, At Home with Hadley, is beloved for her Southern charm and for making her viewers feel like family. When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum and is sent packing, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public's good graces is to work alongside Hadley. As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love. In the meantime, hide the knives.

Special Guest Interview with Denise Brixey
Denise Brixey grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, where she studied writing.  During her many years of living in a big city from birth into adulthood, she had more than her share of challenges. When she left the big city life to move up to a small town in the Gold Country, Denise volunteered at a cat rescue. She soon discovered that, while she was working to save them, it was she who was magically being rescued by the cats! Felines have been a meaningful part of Denise’s world ever since: starring in blogs, social media pages, and currently, her new book series. Although he’s been physically absent for years, the original Harry, a.k.a. Monkeyface, continues to magically impact her life through his teleportation that continues to fuel Denise’s passion for writing and love for her cats. Harry will live forever, so Denise started her series, Harry, the Wonder Cat, to share all his antics and spread meaning and joy to the lives of readers. Her latest book is entitled, Harry the Wonder Cat: The Jamaican Mission Harry the Wonder Cat: The Jamaican Mission In Harry the Wonder Cat: The Jamaican Mission, Harry is back in action after receiving another special assignment from the Cat King. He has been tasked with finding out who killed Marianne Johnson in 1929. At that time, Marianne had just gotten married in Jamaica to Nikki’s Great Uncle Frank, Harry’s then charge in the line of the Johnson family. Following Marianne’s death on their honeymoon, Frank spent the rest of his life trying to solve the mystery as to who killed her. Now he is unable to be at rest and needs Harry’s help, since he has the limitations brought on by being a ghost. To accomplish this mission, Harry needs to go back to the Hailey House B&B where Marianne died. Using his powers, and the cunning of his cat gang, he convinces Nikki, and her friend and housemate Heather, to vacation in Jamaica. Once there, Harry rounds up some Jamaican cats–and even a dog gets involved–to help him solve the mystery. The leader of the beach cat gang is a beautiful petite cat named Luna, who may be the solution to more than one mystery.

Final writing prompt and bonus challenge
Today’s writing prompt is more about your reflections, rather than creating a new piece from scratch, so you’ll need your journals for this one. Write down your thoughts and reflections during this 30-day writing/creative challenge. What did you learn about yourself and your family during this challenge and what did you love about it. Put your responses to each day's prompts together and either publish them as an eBook on Amazon, Smashwords, Draft2Digital or whatever free self-publishing platform you choose to use, create a scrapbook or slideshow for your friends and family, or if you chose to create videos, put them together as a play list on YouTube and share the link to your playlist on social media.

3 Tips for Repurposing Dumped Scenes in your Writing
In today’s episode, I discuss three ways writers can repurpose dumped scenes from their fiction. The tips are as follows: 1. Dump unnecessary scenes into groups, according to a side character’s backstory or plot sequence. 2. Place scene groups in separate documents for future use. 3. Rework scene groups for publication as single books to promote your novel. You can also publish them as a collection later on.

Book review of The Misadventures of Mistletoe Mouse by Susan Bourrie
Celebrate the Christmas season with the lovable and hardworking Mistletoe Mouse. After he befriends Molly Dolly, a doll who is left behind on Christmas Eve by Santa’s elves because they did not have her ready in time to go on Santa’s sleigh, the pair join forces and, with the help of an express reindeer, work to make terrible Christmases terrific. During the following year, Mistletoe Mouse experiences one misadventure after another as he and Molly Dolly save the show when a little girl cannot sing her solo, comfort a grandmother whose grandchildren are caught in a blizzard, and teach boys and girls who cannot afford gifts for their parents how to make something even more valuable than presents. Whether he is dangling from a tree, covered with seaweed, confronting a stranger, or scampering through a skyscraper, Mistletoe Mouse tackles every Christmastime surprise and challenge with energy and imagination. The Misadventures of Mistletoe Mouse is a traditional and wholesome tale that is sure to please children of all ages.
