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.

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.

Host Marnye Young (The Audio Sorceress)
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

The Taste of Air

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)

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.
