    Christmas Under Main Street Holiday Series -- Write Stuff -- 12/2/2021

    in Books

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Are you ready for the holidays and some unique holiday reads? 
    Join me as iIchat with the authors of Christmas Under Main Street! 
    From Book One by Lynn Donovan: Written on the Heart: 
    Sarah Whitehead is too busy running a business to find love for herself. She writes about romance, instead, in her spare time, hoping to one day successfully publish a novel.
    When Don Oswald walks into her shop to buy typewriters for his father’s ranch office, Sarah realizes she knows nothing about romance.
    Can the magic of Christmas bring Don and Sarah everything they wish for this Christmas? Is a perfect love story written on the heart of the man she is meant to marry? From Book Two: Time Will Tell Sadie Bauer inherits her father’s watch and clock repair shop in the Mall beneath Main Street, Pueblo. However, she soon learns that Fate conspires against her operating this business and keeping her father’s memory alive. Will O’Reilly, recently dismissed for fighting, longs to help this beautiful damsel in distress, but she’s about as prickly as a porcupine. He’d like their relationship to be more than employer-employee, but if she learns of their connection through their ex-fiances, she might not want to have anything to do with him. Can Sadie overcome her mistrust of men in general, and of a certain suave salesman in particular? Can Will get past his former betrothed’s infidelity? And can both learn to trust the God who makes all things beautiful in His time?

    Writing Gritty Fiction from Both Sides of the Badge with Frank Zafiro!

    in Books

    Frank primarily writes gritty crime fiction from both sides of the badge. This includes his River City series (an ensemble cast of police officers) and his SpoCompton series (a rotating cast of criminals). His storytelling creed is that the good guys usually win… but not always, and never without a cost. (Hey, a man’s gotta have a code).
    Frank served in the U.S. Army from 1986-91 in Military Intelligence as a Czechoslovak linguist. In 1993, he became  a police officer in Spokane, Washington. During his career, he worked as a patrol officer, corporal, and detective before entered into leadership roles, becoming a sergeant in 2002. He was fortunate enough to command patrol officers, investigators, K-9 officers (and their dogs!), and the SWAT team.
    It's 2003, and times are tough for the River City Police Department. The city budget is collapsing, forcing an already understaffed department to contemplate laying off cops. The community is upset over the handling of recent events, and their anger is impacting the agency from the ground up. Negotiations with the police union are somehow both heated and stagnant at the same time. To "fix" the problem, the mayor appoints a new chief, but the cure may be worse than the disease.
    Worse yet, a killer is stalking the streets of River City, targeting vulnerable women. Rookie detective Katie MacLeod is assigned to assist in the effort to stop him but the case is stymied. Somehow, the men and women of RCPD have to put aside all of the distractions and focus on their jobs – to serve and to protect.

    Once Bitten: A Vampire Urban Fantasy Mystery (Order of the Dragon Book 1) -He saved my life, only to steal it away with his dragon's blood.  
    Midlife was supposed to be steady, where I'd find everything I needed and finally get it together.  Nope. Hollywood lied. Because here I was, again, trying to get my legs under me.  Literally.  I'd lost my job, fallen into the Atlantic, and woken up changed forever. Forever as in eternity forever because the blood my rescuer gave me to save my life had one itty bitty unforeseen consequence.  It made me a vampire.  I know, fang my life.  Now I'd need a miracle just to get through the day. And that miracle is Alistair, the handsome dragon shifter who saved my life and really shouldn't exist. But he is very much a real man--and a real temptation.  And he's offering me a fresh start that comes with a secret organization of supernaturals who live in the shadows. Looks like I'm getting a chance to start over. I just had to die to finally start living. The Order of the Dragon series is best enjoyed when read in reading order.
