Paramedic Killer - Pat Patterson

February 5, 2019

Paramedic Killer

Host Gwyn Olson interviews  Pat Patterson, the author of "Paramedic Killer" and Caroline Turner Cole, the narrator 

 

About the book: An early morning wreck. A grisly, fiery mess. Paramedic Jim Stockbridge does his best to save the family, but the flames drive him back. Now, with a family relative out for revenge and two beautiful women on his mind, Jim is about to learn that failure is not an option — especially when lives are on the line.

Jim Stockbridge could only stare at the terrible fiery wreck. He wanted to cry, to shake his fist and shout at the unleashed horror unfolding before his eyes, but he was a trained professional, and he had work to do.

Three bodies lay on the pavement beside him. Two were on fire...

About the Author: I am a paramedic, an educator, a family man, and an adventurer. I love life, and live to go fast. I used to race motorcycles, now I ride a mountain bike. I have sailed since I was nine, taken a million pictures, studied many topics, and bandaged a lot of people. I write about what I know. So if my stories are gritty, a little fast, colorful and full of adventure, it's because I've been there, on the water, in the woods, and on the street, with dying people in my arms, and that has left a deep impression on my heart. But at the end of the day, I'm just a paramedic with a lot of stories to tell. 

Review Quotes:

"Fast action from dramatic start to a thrilling climax. Sailors, medics, EMTs, and those in emergency medicine will delight in the accuracy of technical detail. Patterson delivers thrilling suspense fiction." ~ Donn Taylor, author of Lightning on a Quiet Night, Rhapsody in Red, and The Lazarus File.

Wow...Paramedic Killer is one intense book! I very much enjoyed this suspenseful fictional novel but had to put it down on occasion as some of the scenes are very graphic and mind-boggling. Jim Stockbridge is a paramedic who is challenged by his choice of career...that of saving lives as an ambulance driver. Six years ago, the unthinkable happens in a driving accident where seven people in one family are killed. A fire ensues after the crash and although there are a few survivors, two young men in particular, Billy and Bobby Canaday are badly disfigured. Even though Jim and his partner Devon made every effort to save their lives, the Canaday clan doesn't quite see things the same way. They decide to take justice into their own hands and with the philosophy of "an eye for an eye" they hunt down the two ambulance drivers to avenge the death of their loved ones...seven people are destined to pay. ~ Dolores Ayotte (Amazon Reviewer)

A Nest of Sparrows - Deborah Raney

January 29, 2019

A Nest of Sparrows

Host Gwyn Olson interviews 
Deborah Raney, the author of "A Nest of Sparrows" 
and Julie Lancelot, narrator 

 

About the book: His Fiancée Was the One Woman He’d Loved.

Her Children Are All He Has Left.

Reserved contractor Wade Sullivan never expected to fall in love with Starr Parnell or to love her three small kids as if they were his own. But that’s exactly what happened. As their wedding draws near, however, tragedy strikes–and Wade must put aside his own grief in order to help Starr’s children cope. 

As Wade focuses his efforts on caring for the children, he discovers that their tender, young lives give tremendous meaning to his own broken one. Then Starr’s abusive ex-husband shows up to claim the offspring who barely remember him–and Wade prepares for the fight of his life. 

Will Anyone Believe His Claim to Love the Children More than Their Father Loves Them? 

A powerful novel of loss and discovery, courage and grace, A Nest of Sparrows masterfully illustrates one man’s struggle to know when to fight, when to let go, and when to simply wait.

A family saga bridging decades and filled with shocking revelations, hope and love, you won't be able put this book down." (Kate Moretti, author of New York Times best-seller Thought I Knew You)
 
"In this terrific novel, when two women learn their mother wasn't who they thought she was it leads them to question their own lives and choices.

Adversity Defeated: Turn Your Struggles into Strengths

December 25, 2018

Adversity Defeated:
Turn Your Struggles into Strengths

Host Marnye Young interviews Marc Hoberman,
the author of "Adversity Defeated"
 

At the age of 16, Marc Hoberman moved from Yonkers, New York, to Hollywood, Florida. Moving away from his friends was hard enough, but being diagnosed with epilepsy shortly thereafter was even harder. Marc's story follows him from high school up to his present-day life as an author, teacher, husband, and father. His struggles with seizures, toxic medications, and loneliness were a certain recipe for disaster. Marc's sense of humor, support network, and successful search for a doctor who would save his life prompted him to make his private story public. Marc's message of turning his struggle into a strength will certainly resonate with teens and parents alike.

Hook’s Tale: An Unjustly Villainized Pirate

December 18, 2018

Hook's Tale:
Being the Account of an Unjustly Villainized Pirate...

Host Marnye Young interviews
John Leonard Pielmeier,
author and narrator of "Hook's Tale"
 

About the book: A rollicking debut novel from award-winning playwright and screenwriter John Pielmeier reimagines the childhood of the much-maligned Captain Hook, his quest for buried treasure, his friendship with Peter Pan, and the true story behind the swashbuckling world of Neverland.

Long defamed as a vicious pirate, Captain James Cook (a.k.a Hook) was, in fact, a dazzling wordsmith who left behind a vibrant, wildly entertaining, and entirely truthful memoir. His chronicle offers a counter-narrative to the works of J.M. Barrie, a "dour Scotsman" whose spurious accounts got it all wrong. Now, award-winning playwright John Pielmeier is proud to present this crucial historic artifact in its entirety for the first time.

Cook's story begins in London, where he lives with his widowed mother. At thirteen, he runs away from home but is kidnapped and pressed into naval service as an unlikely cabin boy. Soon he discovers a treasure map that leads to a mysterious archipelago called the "Never-Isles" from which there appears to be no escape. In the course of his adventures, he meets the pirates Smee and Starkey, falls in love with the enchanting Tiger Lily, adopts an oddly affectionate crocodile, and befriends a charming boy named Peter - who teaches him to fly. He battles monsters, fights in mutinies, swims with mermaids, and eventually learns both the sad and terrible tale of his mother's life and the true story of his father's disappearance.

Like Gregory Maguire's WickedHook's Tale offers a radical new version of a classic story, bringing listeners into a much richer, darker, and enchanting version of Neverland than ever before. The characters that our hero meets - including the terrible Doctor Uriah Slinque and a little girl named Wendy - lead him to the most difficult decision of his life: whether to submit to the temptation of eternal youth or to embrace the responsibilities of maturity and the inevitability of his own mortality. His choice, like his story, is not what you might expect.
