It is a big welcome bacl to my guest on today’s “A Book and a Chat” to best-selling novelist, war and human rights correspondent, environmental activist, award-winning poet and international energy expert, Mike Bond.

Mike has lived globetrotting and often dangerous life , he’s  lived and worked in over thirty countries on six continents. An adviser to the US and foreign governments, human rights and war correspondent, award-winning poet and international energy expert, Mike has used his own experience of many dangerous, remote and war-torn regions of the world to enhance his bestselling novels… he is… as the BBC called him…” The master of the existential thriller” .

Mike’s novels are all based on his experiences in far, dangerous corners of the world:
CROSSFIRE: A British undercover agent fights for his life in Beirut at the height of the Lebanese War — a deep look into the Middle East’s ancient wars and hatreds.

FIRE LIKE THE SUN: An international best-seller about U.S. nuclear warheads lost in the Himalayas, a manhunt through Nepal, Iran, Greece, Algeria, France, Virginia and Colorado.

NIGHT OF THE DEAD: Vietnam vet and weed smuggler Joe Murphy loses his plane in a Guatemalan jungle attack, falls in love with the woman guerrilla who heals him, and fights to protect them both as the death squads hunt them down.

THE LAST SAVANNA: A former British commando battles elephant
poachers who then kidnap the woman he loves, in this acclaimed inside
story of Africa’s disappearing savannas, animals and freedoms.

About “The Last Savana”: (taken from Authors Web Page)

With Africa’s last elephants dying under the guns of Somali poachers,
ex-SAS officer Ian MacAdam leads a commando squad against them, to hunt
what for him is the only decent prey – man. Pursuing the poachers
through jungled mountains and searing deserts he battles thirst,
solitude, terror and lethal animals, only to find they have kidnapped a
young archaeologist, Rebecca Hecht, whom he once loved and bitterly
lost.
She escapes the kidnappers, is caught and escapes again to risk
perishing in the desert. MacAdam embarks on a desperate trek to save not
only Rebecca but his own soul in an Africa torn apart by wars,
overpopulation and the slaughter of its last wildlife.

Based on the author’s own experiences pursuing elephant poachers in the wilds of East Africa, The Last Savanna
is an intense personal memoir of humanity’s ancient heartland, its
people and animals, the lonely beauty of its perilous deserts, jungles,
and savannas, and the deep, abiding power of love.

As onbe revevuer wrote about the book…

“Mike Bond takes readers into a literary safari of Africa’s elephant poaching war with The Last Savanna,
a novel that expertly captures the ravenous, chaotic and frustrating
battles raging across the continent . . . and paints a vivid picture of
life in the savanna . . . Bond’s knowledge of the Swahili language,
local culture and even the wildlife result in what may be one of the
most realistic portrayals of Africa yet . . . Bond’s specialty in
producing thrillers that editorialize human weakness and bring to light
pressing world problems shines in The Last SavannaDynamic, heart-breaking and timely to current events, Bond’s latest book is a must-read.” – 

Mike Bond’s critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister vagaries of politics and multinational corporations, and the magical beauty of the vanishing natural world in thrill a minute, page turning, must read adventures.

After being off for a week due to family illness and incidents I am back with another cracking guest, this time in the form of best-selling novelist, war and human rights correspondent, environmental activist, award-winning poet and international energy expert, Mike Bond.

Mike has lived globetrotting and often dangerous life , he’s  lived and worked in over thirty countries on six continents. An adviser to the US and foreign governments, human rights and war correspondent, award-winning poet and international energy expert, Mike has used his own experience of many dangerous, remote and war-torn regions of the world to enhance his bestselling novels… he is… as the BBC called him…” The master of the existential thriller” .

Mike’s four previous novels are all based on his experiences in far, dangerous corners of the world:

THE LAST SAVANNA: A former British commando battles elephant poachers who then kidnap the woman he loves, in this acclaimed inside story of Africa’s disappearing savannas, animals and freedoms.

CROSSFIRE: A British undercover agent fights for his life in Beirut at the height of the Lebanese War — a deep look into the Middle East’s ancient wars and hatreds.

FIRE LIKE THE SUN: An international best-seller about U.S. nuclear warheads lost in the Himalayas, a manhunt through Nepal, Iran, Greece, Algeria, France, Virginia and Colorado.

NIGHT OF THE DEAD: Vietnam vet and weed smuggler Joe Murphy loses his plane in a Guatemalan jungle attack, falls in love with the woman guerrilla who heals him, and fights to protect them both as the death squads hunt them down.

Now he brings us a his latest thriller  SAVING PARADISE in which an Afghanistan War veteran–turned-surfer risks his life and freedom to search for a journalist’s murderer.

About “Saving Paradise”: (taken from Authors Web Page)

When a beautiful journalist drowns mysteriously in Honolulu Bay, former Special Forces veteran Pono Hawkins, now a well-known Hawaii surfer and international correspondent for surfing magazines, soon gets embroiled in trying to find why she died. What he learns quickly makes him a target for murder or life in prison as a cabal of powerful corporations, foreign killers and crooked politicians turns the blame on him.
 

Haunted by memories of Afghanistan, and determined to protect the Hawaii he loves from dirty politics tied to huge destructive energy developments, Pono turns to Special Forces buddies and his own skills to fight his deadly enemies, trying both to save himself and find her killers.

Alive with the sights, sounds and history of Hawaii, Saving Paradise is also a deeply rich portrait of what Pono calls “the seamy side of paradise”, and an exciting thriller of politics, lies and remorseless murder.

Mike Bond’s critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister vagaries of politics and multinational corporations, and the magical beauty of the vanishing natural world in thrill a minute, page turning, must read adventures.

After six shows about bullying it is good to get back to my normal format, not that I have not enjoyed and found very informational the shows on the bullying subject. I could not have asked for a better guest to get back into the old routine than New York Times and USA Today and International best selling and award winning Historical Romance author Danelle (yes that’s spelt right) Harmon.

Danelle has a life that almost matches her own writings when it comes to romance, leaving her home and family and travelling 3000 miles to be with somebody she’d met and fallen in love with on the internet.  Having been in the same boat… rather airplane as her but while my trip was from the UK to the USA, Danelle followed her heart to be with and marry the man she’d fallen in love with in England.

As Danelle describes it…

How did a Yankee girl who used to be a 1775-era minuteman in a Boston re-enactment group end up in ENGLAND, of all places? Well, in 1994, I met a wonderful man over the Internet. He was handsome, intelligent, all that a romantic hero should be… but there was just one little catch — he was English, and lived 3,000 miles away! Love always wins in the end, though, and following a romantic courtship in which our gilded coaches bore the names “British Airways” and “Virgin Atlantic,” the good doctor from England asked me to marry him.

This romance can be found in her award winning historical romance books which have received many hundreds of fantastic reviews on Amazon.

From her first book “Pirate in Arms” to her “Hero’s of the Sea” and “De Montforte” series the name Danelle Harmon has become one that all lovers of historical romance have read an enjoyed. Indeed her book “The Wild One” (first in the “De Montforte” series) has well over 500 reviews on Amazon.

Now after a break to start and raise a family, Danelle is back not only with her books being now released in updated EBook format, but with a fresh book in the “De Montforte” series heading for  the publisher.

About “The Wild One”: (taken from Amazon)

Lord Gareth de Montforte is an irresponsible, fun-loving rake when beautiful Juliet Paige arrives from America with his late brother’s baby, hoping to give the child a name. Gareth impulsively weds her, only to discover he wasn’t ready for all the responsibilities of marriage and fatherhood. They’re in for plenty of trouble and heartache, until they discover that their love can overcome anything.

Danelle was described in -Laurie Likes Books thus…


Author Danelle Harmon is known on the ‘Net for her fiery demeanor and the romantic way in which she met her husband. She is also known as an author’s author — witness Julia Quinn’s comments about her, “Danelle is one of maybe four writers I will buy without even looking at the back cover copy. People hold on to her books, and with good reason.”

A great show, with a great author. 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 Danelle Harmon
