Now, there’s a cheery topic, if I ever heard one. Actually, though, the thing is that it is good news. I know that many of my readers have heard me say before that the great thing I learned from writing Glastonbury, which covers 1500 years of history, is that, no matter how dark the present may seem, times have always been worse before—and humanity has always survived. And triumphed.

Perhaps in the spirit of “Misery loves company,"  which was one of my mother’s favorite sayings, and even more appropriately, in tune with the Lenten hymn that begins, “Now let us all with one accord, In...

When I first heard of Angels Flight, Los Angeles’ unique funicular railway, I was fascinated, but thought that, like so many bits of history, it had crumbled with time.

Amanda Fino, Cerebral Palsy Advocate and Author

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ September 5, 2019

Today I offer an Author Spotlight, introducing Amanda Fino. One meets the most interesting people in the writersphere and Amanda Fino “Author and CP Gal” is most certainly one of them.

Amanda is a Cerebral Palsy advocate who speaks for the voiceless on her blog. And the busy author of realistic romantic suspense novels. Amanda is currently offering Deepest Elements, her recent release, free on her website.

Donna: Amanda, tell us about your new book.

Amanda: My latest book, DEEPEST ELEMENT, is set at a very elite boarding school that has darkeness within its walls.  Arriving in Radcliffe Heights, Rhode Island, freshman Peony “Poppy” Calloway admired the picturesque small town. But deep in the shadows of the woods near Blue Bell Boarding School, and along its hallowed halls, lurked illicit sex, murder, and harrowing danger. Seduced by Jordon Dashwood,...
