Sins of Our Mothers: Skeletons in Our Closets

A Chat with the Author

Host Marnye Young talks to the author of Sins of Our Mothers: Skeletons in Our Closets, discussing the true story of how Shana Dines survived a childhood of mental, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of her mother.

From the author: People have a hard time believing that women - especially mothers who are supposed to protect their children - can be molesters and pedophiles, but Shana Dines's mother was one. She shares not only the story of her own recovery, exposing the sins of the mothers in her family, but also helps other victims see that they are not alone. They can recover and have healthy, reasonably happy lives and help others in their journeys to wholeness.

About the author: Shana Dines is an Indiana native. She lives with her husband Michael and is the mother of five adult children. She is a grandmother, great-grandmother, and the mother-rescuer of a Boston Terrier named Abby (who has stolen her mom and dad's hearts). She illustrated Mimi's Tales written by Suzie Raffensperger. She started writing online for many online writing sites, which inspired her to write American Ghost Stories, published in 2013.

Destined: A Novel of the Tarot

A preview and sample of the audiobook
written by Gail Cleare - 
Host Addison Barnes

 

About the book: 

Follow Emily's journey to self-discovery, community, spirit, and love. A contemporary magic-realism romance. 

This is the year Emily Ross takes control of her destiny and learns to deliberately shape the future. Emily has always known she is different. She attracts spirits, has prophetic dreams and can sense people's thoughts. Longing to fit in, she hides her true self. But this changes when she takes a job at the fabulous curio shop owned by Henry Paradis, an occult scholar who becomes her spiritual mentor. Recognizing her talents as the valuable gifts they are, Henry teaches Emily to accept her magical nature and "look forward." Emily chooses the path to light. She finds lifelong friends, falls in love, learns the power of desire and intention, faces her worst fears and is swept toward awakening.
 

Reviews:

A wonderful story of destiny! Gail weaves a tarot card into each chapter in this lovely story of love, understanding and a spiritual path. It is not about the occult as some may associate with tarot. Do you believe in a predestined spiritual path? Read this intriguing story that is interesting from the first page. I am thoroughly enjoying it so far. I highly recommend this book. Leaves me feeling hopeful and delighted.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This is my 1st book by the author. It won't be the last!! I was able to escape into the story!

 

This has become my favorite tarot novel! I've got to say, my first take on Destined was that it was too good to be true. Everyone was either nice from the get-go or someone who would obviously come around as I followed the sunshiny plot.

But I read the book all the way through in a couple of hours because I loved the characters and couldn't put it down. And by now it's not only my favorite tarot novel, it's got pages coming out from rereading and I could really use a new copy! The tarot chapter headings work well and the tarot readings within the book are spot on. Very believable.

The Camel’s Back: A Nick Lawrence Novel

The Camel’s Back: A Nick Lawrence Novel

March 12, 2019

The Camel's Back:
A Nick Lawrence Novel

Host Marnye Young (The Audio Sorceress) interviews Brian Christopher Shea,  the author of "The Nick Lawrence Series", and Conner Goff, the narrator of "The Camel's Back"

 

About the book: Three people, each at their own breaking point, collide. The resulting impact will forever change their lives… if they can manage to survive it.

Declan Enright, a former police officer recently fired over a controversial shooting, has reached a breaking point in his life. Confronted with insurmountable financial burdens in the wake of his termination, Declan makes a desperate move to stabilize his situation for the benefit of his wife and three young daughters. Tapping into his ingrained skill set, forged during his time as an operator in the Navy’s most elite special operations unit, Declan crosses over the line of right and wrong, discovering that nothing is black and white. All while maintaining the balance of family and the needs of his non-communicative, three-year-old autistic daughter, Laney.

Nicholas Lawrence, an accomplished investigator with the FBI, voluntarily takes a reassignment from his human trafficking unit in Austin, Texas. His transfer brings him to the bank robbery unit based out of Connecticut’s New Haven field office. Nick’s decision to relocate, stemming from the recent death of his father, is done in an effort to care for his aging mother suffering from the onset of dementia. The burden of this decision is only slightly alleviated by the support of his partner, Isabella Martinez.

Khaled, a man who suffered an unimaginable loss several years back, makes the decision to leave his small village set in the foothills of Iraq’s Cheekha Dar Mountain. He has traveled to the United States in the hope of seeking closure to the event that haunts his daily existence. Khaled’s concept of closure is wrought with devastating consequences, plunging the country into a state of fear. The best chance at thwarting this threat rests in the unlikely alliance formed between Declan, Nick, and Isabella.

 

Editorial Reviews:

“A powerful and gripping novel. The character of Declan Enright is every bit as complex as the times we live in. Written from firsthand experience, Brian Christopher Shea gives us all the rare opportunity to see the internal and external struggles of those individuals who serve in the military and as first responders.” Kevin Cahill, Lt. Col. US Army Intelligence
 
 
“Shea gives you a front row seat to the raw emotion of those on the front line. His characters are genuine and are faced with real-world challenges set against a backdrop of a fast-paced thrill ride. His descriptive prose breaks down the technical aspect of the military and police lingo, putting it into plain language for all readers. Shea’s original character, Declan Enright, is as relentless as the author who created him. A must read!” Lt. Kevin Dillon (Ret.), Founder of LOCKUP Police Combat Systems

talks with Carmen DeSousa,
"Creatus Series" Author

 

About the book: Creatus Series Boxed Set includes the complete five-book series!

For 4000 years, creatus have concealed themselves from the humans who hunted them almost to extinction. Unwittingly, one creatus will endanger them all...

As with most of his family, Derrick Ashton knows his future and what position he's destined to fill within his unique society. Everything changes, however, when he breaks one of his family's strictest laws and falls in love - with a human.

In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of faith propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family and endanger the anonymity that they've spent thousands of years protecting.

Now, he will risk everything to save the girl from humans and his own kind. The one thing he can't save her from, however...is herself.

The Creatus series is not your normal paranormal story... It's a realistic romantic mystery based on the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe.

Reviews:
 
Great Series! Loved this one and think it is fabulous the entire series can be purchased together!!! Definitely a book series for those that love the supernatural! --L Crumigan

Excellent Story! Action, suspense, mystery, and romance. Excellent series. The narration definitely made the story come alive. --Jessica Luemen

Interesting Twist! This is a unique idea for all the myths throughout history from vampire to nephilim to witches and humans. There weren't any slow parts. At first, I was a little bummed that the books went so fast in a story progression it too out what makes a good guy good but also bad. (vice versa with the bad guy having good parts). I can't say it's a romance because any romance happened fast without any satisfying tension. I am glad that there were limited sex scenes because that would have ruined my mental image of each character. I have been looking forward to this book but was too concerned about it based on the "star" reviews. I'm glad I bought it though. It's so much better than the average review. --Teresa

Hear Your Body Whisper:
How to Unlock Your Self-Healing Mechanism

Host Marnye Young (The Audio Sorceress) interviews Otakara Klettke, the author of "Hear Your Body Whisper: How to Unlock Your Self-Healing Mechanism"

 

About the book:

Can you talk to your body?
Is it possible to hear your body talk to you?
Could you help your body to get healthy and heal acute or chronic diseases?
Could your body return to its ideal shape on its own?

Imagine your life inside a healthy body. No doctor’s appointments. No health limitations.

Imagine your body to return into shape that is healthiest for it. Without your willpower.

Otakara Klettke shares in her book Hear Your Body Whisper, How to Unlock Your Self-Healing Mechanism how she has learned to communicate with her body.

From a sick childhood and constant health limitations, the author spent first 20 years of her life often being bound to a hospital or home in bed. When she slowly discovered that there is a way to communicate with her body her life turned around.

Hear Your Body Whisper is a result of obsessive research, personal experience, and rediscovering the connection between our body and mind that naturally exists in every one of us.

Otakara Klettke separates her mind and soul from her body. She explains that your body is filled with trillions of microorganisms that are responsible for the well-being of your body. By understanding your body’s inhabitants, you can guide them to address acute and chronic diseases. Your body will also settle in the body shape it is meant to be naturally.

Host and narrator, Marnye Young (The Audio Sorceress) interviews Gail Cleare,  the author of "The Taste of Air"

 

About the book: A simple phone call disrupts Nell Williams's well-ordered life. Her mother, Mary, is in a hospital in Vermont. But her mother is supposed to be safely tucked away in an assisted-living facility in Massachusetts, so Nell can't fathom why she would be so far from home.

After notifying her sister, Bridget, Nell hops on a plane and rushes to her mother's side. There, she discovers that her mother has been living a second life. Mary has another home and a set of complex relationships with people her daughters have never met.

When Nell and Bridget delve deeper into their mother's lakeside hideaway, they uncover a vault of family secrets and the gateway to change for all three women.

 

Editorial Reviews:

"In The Taste of Air, Cleare deftly explores the consequence of our choices, even those made with the best of intentions. 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. Deftly written, with lush descriptions of the New England setting, this is a book to choose as a companion for curling up on a sofa on a dark winter day or for laying on the beach in the summer. The Taste of Air is character-driven fiction at its best." (Ann Warner, author of The Babbling Brook Naked Poker Club series)

Eden: A Novel - Podcast

Eden: A Novel - Podcast

November 20, 2018

Host Marnye Young (the Audio Sorceress) talks with author Jeanne Blasberg about her novel, "Eden: A Novel."

Jeanne is a voracious observer of human nature and has kept a journal since childhood. A firm believer that you are never too old to change course, she enrolled at Grub Street, one of the country’s pre-eminent creative writing centers, where she turned her attention to memoir and later fiction. Eden is her debut novel.

About the Book: Becca Meister Fitzpatrick―wife, mother, grandmother, and pillar of the community―is the dutiful steward of her family’s iconic summer tradition... until she discovers her recently deceased husband squandered their nest egg. As she struggles to accept that this is likely her last season in Long Harbor, Becca is inspired by her granddaughter’s boldness in the face of impending single-motherhood, and summons the courage to reveal a secret she was forced to bury long ago: the existence of a daughter she gave up fifty years ago. The question now is how her other daughter, Rachel―with whom Becca has always had a strained relationship―will react.

Eden is the account of the days leading up to the Fourth of July weekend, as Becca prepares to disclose her secret and her son and brothers conspire to put the estate on the market, interwoven with the century-old history of Becca’s family―her parents’ beginnings and ascent into affluence, and her mother’s own secret struggles in the grand home her father named “Eden.”
