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.

Currently, plans are in the works to make three of the earlier novels “SPY DANCE”, “A WOMAN OF VALOR”, and “DARK AMBITION” to be made into movies. As we learned a screenwriter has already been hired by a producer to write a screenplay for SPY DANCE, and it is nearing completion.–

About “The Argentine Triangle”: (taken from Amazon)

After a fall from grace and drastic cosmetic surgery in Switzerland,
former CIA director Craig Page is enjoying a new, exhilarating life
racing cars across Europe. But when new dangers threaten America and an
old friend goes missing during a covert mission in Argentina, will Craig
be ready to step up to the plate?



Undercover in the glamorous world of
Buenos Aires’ wealthy elite, Page finds himself on the brink of a
terrible discovery. General Estrada and Colonel Schiller have plans for
Argentina, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. A world of brutality
hidden in the classified secrets of Argentina’s Dirty War comes to
light, painting an image of the cataclysmic future awaiting Estrada’s
South America. To expose Estrada and put an end to his plot, Page is
forced to implement every instinct, skill, and tool in his arsenal. But
when it comes time to close in for the kill, Page meets with unexpected
complications-love, lust, and a lethal game of cat and mouse.

Hard on
the heels of The Russian Endgame comes Allan Topol‘s next great
thriller.

Rife with the exotic backdrops and hairpin plot turns that
put Topol on the best-seller list, The Argentine Triangle is a
heart-stopping foray into human vice coupled with power accelerating
towards catastrophe.

education from traveling all over the world to story telling and doing
her best to keep her father proud. Truthfully, her father is her number
one fan, even though he has sworn never to read a single word of her

even a minister do strange things!

About “Desire Wears Diamonds” (A Jaded Gentleman Novel)

WHEN BETRAYAL IS THE ONLY PATH OPEN AND PASSION IS THE ONLY ENEMY HE NEVER ANTICIPATED . . .

The
shy soldier and self-appointed guardian of the Jaded, Michael
Rutherford, is faced with the ultimate test of his loyalty and honor
when he meets the woman who is at once his perfect match and the worst
choice he could ever make. The final battle with the Jaded’s greatest
enemy will force him to choose between the brotherhood he has vowed to
protect and shielding the innocent lady he comes to love. For Michael,
it is a dance with the devil for a chance to taste the kisses of an
angel.

Grace Porter is no ordinary wallflower or shy spinster
hiding in the shadows of her brother’s London home. She is a quiet
rebel with secrets of her own and a woman who dreams of an independent
life, free to pursue her dreams as a writer. Her imagination holds the
key to her survival, but it fuels her retreat from the colorless world
around her. Until Michael Rutherford’s arrival upturns her every
fantasy and threatens her sanctuary with his lies. His embrace is
intoxicating to her senses but Grace isn’t the kind of woman to lose her
head—or her heart.

It’s a knuckle-biting race to the finish for
fans of the Jaded as fan favorite, Michael Rutherford, discovers the
identity of the Jackal and Michael learns that sometimes the price to
pay for justice is the sacrifice of hope and happiness. He will risk
everything as the Jaded call him out as a traitor and nothing is what it
seems.

Helene Dunbar is today’s guest on a Book and a Chat, and though this is her debut book she has been a freelance writer for some years covering subjects from court cases, theater, and Native American Indian tribes to features about fiddles & accordions.

Her debut novel is a moving and thought provoking YA novel “These Gentle Wounds”.

The idea for These Gentle Wounds came from an unfortunate number
of true cases, some of which Helene once wrote about for an educational
book series. In a 2010 case in New York State, one of the children
survived and she started to wonder what his life would be like. Helene followed the real life story and the boy’s life is nothing like
Gordie’s. For better or worse.

About “These Gentle Wounds”:

Sometimes I wish I’d lost a leg or something. Everyone can understand
that. They never get it when what’s been broken is inside your head.

Five
years after an unspeakable tragedy that changed him forever, Gordie
Allen has made a new home with his half-brother Kevin. Their arrangement
works since Kevin is the only person who can protect Gordie at school
and keep him focused on getting his life back on track.

But just
when it seems like things are becoming normal, Gordie’s biological
father comes back into the picture, demanding a place in his life. Now
there’s nothing to stop Gordie from falling into a tailspin that could
cost him everything–including his relationship with Sarah, the first
girl he’s trusted with the truth. With his world spinning out of
control, the only one who can help Gordie is himself . . . if he can
find the strength to confront the past and take back his future.

With a second book already in the editing stage for release next year, I am sure the name Helene Dunbar will continue to be on the must read YA list.

From ancient Greece to the 21st century, poets have gazed at the heavens, trying to unlock the mystery and beauty of the cosmos in verse. In his charming new collection, DARKLIGHT, Leonard H. Roller, one of those poetic seekers, leavens his fascination with the cosmos and love of writing poetry with a gentle humor that will leave readers chuckling while they ponder the great celestial questions and What It All Means.

In the 77 poems in DARKLIGHT, Roller employs a range of poetic styles – from classical sonnets to free verse – to present his unique vision of such astronomical concepts as black holes, dark energy, the “Big Bang” theory, white dwarf stars , multiverses, the possible beginning and end of our universe and the existence of God.

Readers need not be well-versed in such subjects – or in poetry itself – to enjoy Roller’s poems. His writing is user-friendly and will appeal to those who love poetry, are intrigued by cosmology, as well as those looking for something different, a touch of profundity, but refreshingly free of pretense and confusing obscurity. Roller’s ideas and writing style go down easily. Simply put, the poems in DARKLIGHT are fun.

Roller holds advanced degrees in journalism and literature, is well-read in physics and astronomy. His love affair with the heavens began as a “star struck” boy peering into the night sky through a telescope given to him as a birthday gift. Though infatuated with poetry throughout his life, he began to take writing poetry seriously after reading a book by actor Stephen Fry titled “The Ode Less Traveled,” a manual on poetic style and form.

“I discovered that I really wanted to write poems,” Roller says. Astronomy and things celestial became natural subjects for him. In time, he started to send his work to literary magazines, where many of his poems were published.

Roller’s poetry reflects his darkly humorous view of the universe. “It has both a light side and a dark side. I don’t know what God had in mind, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that He made the world – and us — tongue-in-cheek, a cosmic cocktail of tears and laughter.”

The imagery of Roller’s poems is striking and amusing. A black hole is likened to a gobbling troll, a quasar to a wedding feast, the death of stars to the fading of a movie queen:

As time and celestial taste go by,
They are no longer stellar queens.
Whether with a shriek or a sigh,
They leave the screen.

Roller hopes his poems will encourage readers to think a little about where we came from and where we’re going, “…about what we’re doing here and why.”
