    Close Up Radio Spotlights Author and Retired Police Lieutenant Patricia L. Blake

    in Books

    Yerington, NV – Patricia L. Blake is a retired police lieutenant and the author of Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me!
    Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is a personal account of the powerful emotional side of police work and its impact on officers and families.
    “I realized my story could make a difference with people who find themselves in times of terror, stress or desperation. It’s important for them to know that there is a higher power that care and is there for you. I hope that it makes a difference in people's lives,” says Patty. “And I hope that they gain new insight and perspective on police officers. I believe most of us are there for the right reason.”
    Patty says Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! required three years of intense work.
    Patty was inspired to become a police officer following a traumatic near-death experience with her first husband as a 19-year-old.
    Since that fateful day, Patty says God has guided her throughout her life to protect the innocent and the vulnerable, and she would go on to serve a police officer for 33 years.
    “It was a calling. I wanted to make a difference to help the children,” says Patty. “I loved working in the streets and in the field, because it's so fluid, and you make such a difference. I was incredibly blessed to work different assignments and I always saw them as a chance to learn how to be a better leader and make a difference not only in the community but with the officers themselves.”
    Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is dedicated to the incredible heroes, our first responders and our military warriors.

    Scott Kyle and Liv Kyle Author of Via LaVie: and the Friendship Code

    in Books

    Today on The Neil Haley Show, Neil will interview Scott Kyle and Liv Kyle  Author of Via LaVie: and the Friendship Code.
    Via LaVie thinks she’s just an average fifth-grader. She has a mom and dad, an irritating older brother and a cat. She has friends (Molly Appleton is her bestie) and an enemy (bossy mean girl, Tailor Madison). And, she has plenty of worries about going to middle school in the near future.
    But Via also has a secret that makes her far from average: she’s an undercover genius who remembers just about everything she sees.
    It’s an ability that was encouraged by Via’s beloved grandmother while Via faced one of the biggest challenges in her life. And while her eidetic memory comes in handy for acing schoolwork, finishing science projects and learning how to say “dork” in foreign languages, Via finds it less than helpful for managing Gran’s mysterious disappearance... or for balancing old friendships with new ones when a special new friend moves onto Via’s street.
    And then everything in Via’s world gets scrambled when a special opportunity puts Via on a collision course with her family, her friends and her enemy. She’ll need her fantastic memory, all her heart and a little mischief.

    Heaven's Rain -- Write Stuff -- 5/10/2022

    in Books

    Take a leap of faith into a world unlike any you have ever known, one where mankind still remembers its foundations and all the earth is clothed in perpetual springtime. Here, angels and demons wage war for the souls of mankind, and man lives for hundreds of years, forever growing either in righteousness or in evil. In these days, there are few who acknowledge where they have come from, few who keep hold of the one true God who wrought the world. For those who do, the blinders are ripped off and they see the truth: a world at war. Tucked just behind the veil of sense experience, battles rage and captives are taken as kingdoms collide and man is caught in the middle. The shocking part is this: it’s our world. Discover the true story behind the origins of the world and experience the adventure of the times of the great biblical flood alongside characters like Noah, who finds his family caught up in the war for the survival of the human race. In this fight against the forces of darkness and the deep wounds of their own souls, they will face great sacrifice and tragedy if they hope to reach the reward. Some of them will not make the journey, and those who do will never be the same.
