When your father is Jacques Doniol-Valcroze, co-founder of the New Wave magazine CAHIERS DU CINEMA, and from her grandfather, French filmmaker André Cayatte (original THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES), it is not surprising that Diane Doniol-Valcroze as a young girl, she developed a passion for writing.

Born in Paris, France, Diane e earned a B.A. in English literature from the Sorbonne University, and an M.F.A. in film from New York University while apprenticing on the Lauren Hutton show. It was while at New York University she met Arthur K. Flam and together they have co-written screen plays for such films as Lionsgate’s PENNY DREADFUL, starring Mimi Rogers, and MGM’s HIT AND RUN, helmed by Enda McCallion and starring Kevin Corrigan.

Now the two of them have produced their debut book 41 STRANGE.

41 STRANGE, a first-of-its-kind e-book anthology devoted exclusively to “short-short stories of the strange and horrifying,” awaits just a couple of clicks away for Kindle readers who enjoy a good shiver up their spines. The book delivers a reading experience in the spirit of such masters of the macabre as Edgar Allan Poe, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Alfred Hitchcock, and Rod Serling.  Many of the stories were written “in the lonely hour of the wolf … in the pre-dawn darkness when you get those ‘waking nightmares.’” .

As one reviewer wrote “… gruesome and skillfully assembled… Each story is a quick read that abundantly satisfies the audience’s thirst and appetite for horrific plots… these short horror stories provide great entertainment…”

With a second book already underway, we will I am sure hear a lot more from these talented authors.

So listen now and share an interesting and entertaining show as I chat with my special guest today on A Book and a Chat with Diane Doniol-Valcroze

My guest on today’s “A Book and a Chat” is award winning author Mike Faricy .  His novels are an addictive
combination of mystery and suspense woven together with a rich strain of
humor and a bit of romance.

Always into books from an early age Mike entertaining and engrossing tales are filled with the sort of quirky, oddball characters many would like to know more about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. Many of the characters serve, not so much as examples of real people, but more as warnings to the rest of us of the darker side of humanity. Readers will not find characters who are saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies, or coups to topple the government. Rather, they are part of our world, living just below the surface of polite society. The difficulties the characters find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then, bad decisions make for interesting tales.

From Mike’s first book “Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick” his crime novel which now number 14 include seven in the marvelous series which introduces us to the bizarrely devilish Devlin Haskell as a PI with a foot on both sides of the law. From the first book in the series “Russian Roulette” through others such as “Mr. Softee “ and “Bite Me” to his latest release the “Ting-a-ling”.

About “Ting-A-Ling”

Continuing the Dev Haskell – Private Investigator Series with Case 7

After answering Danielle’s middle of the night phone call, private investigator Dev Haskell offers to help. It’s a simple task. All he has to do is deliver a message to her former business partner. The next thing he knows, Dev is involved in a missing person case and he can’t find his client or her business partner. That turns out to be the least of his problems when he finds himself on the hook for murder and all the evidence points toward him.

Meanwhile, an incident from his childhood continues to haunt Dev. With his very freedom hanging in the balance everything seems to be beyond his control. He’ll need all his skill and a good deal of luck to save himself. In a tale fraught with danger, Mike Faricy, Master of the Bizarre lays one twist on top of another until a murder rap becomes the least of Dev’s problems.

H. A. Somerled (Heather) todays guest on “A Book and a Chat”  lives in the Missoula, Montana area.

After an uneventful tour in the U.S. Navy, she followed her passions and enrolled in Culinary School. She graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art and has also completed a writing course from the Long Ridge Writer’s Group.

From an early age Heather wrote little stories including one about her morning routine where her mother says “Now is the time is the time is the time.” In eighth grade she had a teacher who encouraged pupils to write a journal and hand it in every week. Heather wrote about a creature in her locker (named the Lockerness Monster) who ate her homework, stole one gym sock or shoe, and caused her a lot of grief in middle school. Since then she has written short stories whenever the inspiration hit her.

After watching Sherlock and The Adventures of Merlin and fascinated by the two main actors, (Benedict Cumberbatch and Colin Morgan) Heather thought they could play brothers. Then she thought they could be a police officer and a smart ass brother who always got in trouble. Threw in a female American hacker to spice things up, and it blossomed into her debut novel “Angel’s Code”, which is now closely followed by “Angel’s Betrayal” both part of the “Angel Hacker Series”.

About “Angel’s Betrayal”

Its summertime and insects are not the only thing flying in the London skies. Oliver and Danny Murray return in this explosive second in the series novel. When two C.I.A. agents appear in Oliver Murray’s office, he knows nothing good could come from it. An American drone has gone missing and the agents believe the one of their own has taken it. The agent’s name is Sara Parsons, also known as Fallen Angel. Maintaining her innocence, Angel tries to find the real thief, but when one of the agents sent to arrest her turns up dead in her flat, Oliver has a hard time believing her. With the help from his brother, Danny, Oliver betrays his own instincts and decides to help Angel find the true murderer and drone thief.

As one reviewer put it… “Intelligent and fast paced, the action is very fun to read with the author’s irreverent humor sprinkled throughout the story”. The name H.A. Somerled is one to look for on your book shelves.

Making a welcome return on today’s “A Book and a Chat” is my guest Bruce Sarte.

An accomplished songwriter with two gold records to his credit, Bruce lives just outside of Philadelphia with his wife and three children. In addition to writing, he enjoys baseball, playing guitar, reading, church, cooking and being a dad. Bruce grew up at the Jersey Shore (the picture is at Point Pleasant Beach, where Sands of Time is set) and graduated from Admiral Farragut Academy in Pine Beach, NJ where he first became enthralled with reading and writing. From his early influences Bruce was introduced to and fell in love with Shakespeare, Marlow, Henry James and Nathaniel Hawthorne. In addition to his books, Bruce has written for The Bleacher Report, The Father Life and The Examiner.

Bruce has published the vampire thriller Sands of Time, the
paranormal murder mystery Towering Pines Volume One: Room 509, the story
of how God selected The Star of Christmas, stories in the horror
anthology Bump in the Night 2010, Bump in the Night 2011 and Bump in the
Night 2013 horror anthologies; plus the Kindle/Nook only offerings —
the historical mystery of Sweet Nessie, the top selling horror
short-story Best Friends Forever about two friends who have been
kidnapped by a secretive cult and The Show Must Go On, a story about an
old theater and its last gasp of breathe… literally.

The thrilling detective novels, Philadelphia Story (Lance
Carter #1) and The Insider’s Story (Lance Carter #2) have stormed to the
top of the Amazon charts quickly after their release.

We learned during the show that “Sands of Time” is being re-written for a TV film, also about brice’s latest book due to be released the end of this month The Kill Commission” which introduces us to a new character in the shape of Tim Rutherford.

 

About “The Kill Commission”
 
When Tim Rutherford’s daughter is brutally
murdered, it opens up a chasm inside of him that can only be filled by
one thing — justice. But, when justice fails his little girl this
highly trained federal agent realizes there is only one way to fill the
chasm: revenge.
And The Kill Commission is just the group to give it to him.
The Commission is filled with people just like
Tim, all have been wronged by the justice system — and all want their
own slice of revenge. And they’ve recruited Tim to do their dirty work.
Tim sets forth doing the Commission’s dirty work until he realizes that
they aren’t what they seem — and he has to right the wrongs that have
been done.

On todays “A Book and a Chat” I have debut author Glenn Ogura.

In his book “Startup” Glenn  displays all the skills of a veteran storyteller. Using much of his own working experience Glenn has created in “Startup”  a roller-coaster ride of a book that finds the sweet spot between the legal suspense tales of John Grisham and the science-fiction thrillers of Michael Crichton.

Kirkus Reviews has hailed STARTUP as “a solid business thriller … reminiscent of John Grisham’s THE FIRM.”

About “Startup” :

Set in California’s Silicon Valley, “Startup” follows a young idealist/entrepreneur, Zack Penny, as he strives to achieve his dream of creating a new company that will launch an international revolution in technology through the creation of wallpaper-thin displays that will completely surround a viewer. Zack works for a highly successful company called Display Technik, run by CEO Allen Henley, whose vision is based on a success-at-all-costs philosophy. Zack sees Henley as a mentor, but Zack’s philosophy favors high morals and values over Henley’s ruthless, end-justifies-the-means model of doing business.


Zack’s dream takes root one morning when he discovers an important paper has been taken from his office. Someone has exposed Zack’s secret plan to break away from Display Technik and start his own company. Henley gives Zack another chance to pledge his loyalty to the firm, but Zack resigns instead, more determined than ever to realize his vision. 

Soon, the optimistic if naive Zack steps into his new facility with high hopes for success. Henley, however, has already launched a plan to destroy Zack, his company, and Zack’s relationship with Henley’s daughter, Mary Anne.
Asked to describe his book Glenn says… “STARTUP is a story about greed and corruption … it addresses the issue of morals and ethics in business (and in life) which are certainly controversial topics in the headlines

Following the recent list of thriller, mystery writers who have appeared on “A Book and a Chat” comes today’s guest Veronica Faye.

An avid fan of Agatha Christie’s British tea-cozy mysteries and the hard-boiled novels about detective Easy Rawlins by Walter Mosley since she was a teenager, Veronica recently published “My Past Came Knocking: The Savannah Wooten Case” the first in the Gemini Jones series which I’m sure will become a must set of novels for those who love mystery thrillers.

Veronica started writing the book in 2006 when she was going through her own trials and tribulations undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.

About Gemini Jones – My Past Came Knocking: The Savannah Wooten Case: (taken from PRNews)

Veronica Faye pens a murder mystery that follows two women who find the strength to overcome their painful past. The novel’s lead character, Gemini Jones, is a successful African-American attorney who manages a high-profile career while keeping her bipolar disorder in check. Her newest case revolves around the murder of David Ban, a politician widely beloved in the city’s black community.


The client who brings the case to her is a woman she knows all too well: Savannah Wooten. Both women share a painful past together; Gemini and Savannah were able to overcome their traumatizing ordeals to arrive as successful, accomplished women. Yet the murder of Ban, the politician, will force them to relive the past and deal with secrets they long considered lost to time. To proceed with the legal case, both women will have to reveal painful secrets and uncover the real David Ban that the public never knew.


Full of sharp-witted humor and heart-breaking tragedy, “Gemini Jones” is an engrossing read. In the personality of power lawyer Gemini, author Faye has crafted a character that will be a role model for African-American women and an inspiration to anyone who has ever had to manage bipolar disorder while holding down a professional career. A story of pain, tragedy, endurance and success, the novel sends a powerful message of hope as told through the compelling story of two strong black women.

“Gemini Jones: ‘My Past Came Knocking’ – The Savannah Wooten Case” is a mystery that will lure readers with its message of overcoming adversity, its witty, tough characters and a plot that will get readers quickly turning pages.

With the second in the series already underway, Veronica explained that she wants wants Gemini to be a role model for African-American women as well as an inspiration to those who manage bipolar disorder while holding down a professional career.
