School psychologist writes sinister thriller

Sinister Obsession Banner photo A-Sinister-Obsession-Banner.jpg
I'm delighted to welcome author and school psychologist S. B. Redstone to my blog today with a guest post and sample  from his new book, A Sinister Obsession. The author is offering a generous giveaway, so don't forget to read to the end of the post and visit the rafflecopter and other exciting Sinister Obsession tour stops.

And don't forget to look at the book cover too. One glance has me haunted and wanting to know more, especially given the author's background, so...

Please tell us, Mr. Redstone...

How has being a school psychologist 
played into being a thriller writer?

Sinister Obsession Author photo SB-Redstone.jpg            It’s not just being a school psychologist that endeared me to being a thriller writer. I began my career as a caseworker in Child Protective Services, where I investigated the abuse and neglect of children. After attaining master’s degrees in social work and school psychology, and receiving post-graduate training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, you can see that I was deeply involved in social issues and understanding human nature and relationships. I even wrote a psychology book on those topics, examining our predatory ancestry and genes. With that said, all my clinical experiences, my education, and interest in understanding human nature, focused me on the too often sad and dark side of humanity. Although my novel, A Sinister Obsession, is a mystery thriller, its story centers on an unresolved social issue that intensifies the passions in people. My work is also highly psychologically oriented because that’s who I am. Different than other writers, my therapeutic background allows me to portray accurate and realistic characters, good and villainous. I like to use my characters to point out human folly, which Charles Dickens and other great writers have done.
Sinister Obsession cover photo A-Sinister-Obsession.png            When you are involved in such sadness, as I was in my career, I needed a diversion. Writing a mystery is fun and making it a thriller gives me even greater pleasure. I can’t write boring and I can’t write ordinary. Although I try and create truly evil villains, they are never as evil as real life. I believe mystery thrillers give people a diversion from their too often stressful, sad, and uninteresting lives as well, and that is healthy. People want to express their hate toward someone and if it can’t be a boss, family member, or at a societal institution, it can be at a villainous character. In a way I am still helping people without the use of a couch! In addition, as a school psychologist and therapist, it wasn’t that I told patients and students how to have happier lives, I made them think of their own solutions if they could. People love to think and analyze, and be amateur detectives. That’s what I’ve created for the readers. They have an equal chance of solving the crimes.     

Thank you S. B. Perhaps that's why mysteries fill so many shelves in the bookstores these days. But yours is certainly one I would quickly pick up to find out more, so here, for my blog readers, is more information.


Title:  A Sinister Obsession
Author:  S. B. Redstone
Published:  August 2013
Sinister Obsession cover photo A-Sinister-Obsession.pngPublisher:  Black Opal Books
Word Count: approx. 94,000
Genre:  Mystery Thriller
Content Warning:  Violence and Sexual Content
Recommended Age:  21+
Synopsis: A psychopathic killer on a quest leaves behind a string of brutal murders, and to find the Who, the police must first discover the Why…
Detective Aubrey McKenzie has been assigned to investigate the murders. A lovely, fabulously wealthy, dark-haired Scot, whose iron will was forged in the inferno of human tragedy, Aubrey is stymied by the lack of solid clues. Now she must rely on her paranormal ability to apprehend the killer—an ability that has been invaluable in her police work but has made a disaster of her social life.
Fate teams Aubrey with Detective Joshua Diamond, a handsome, talented, and compassionate man who is more than happy eating a greasy bacon-cheeseburger and wearing clothes that should have been thrown out with the trash. In a race against time, Aubrey and Joshua must overcome their vast differences—and their attraction for each other—and discover the identity of this elusive killer, and the quest this fiend is on, before more lives are destroyed.
 If you're anything like me, after picking up a book and reading the blurb, you like to look inside, so here's your chance. Enjoy

Excerpt from A Sinister Obsession by S. B. Redstone:
 When Aubrey arrived home, she glanced at her answering machine. There was one message. Since she didn’t have friends, she knew who it was. She pressed the button and heard that cold, authoritative voice. “Aubrey. This is your mother. I am reminding you of Randal’s birthday party tomorrow night. He would be quite disappointed if you did not make an appearance. The time—”

Aubrey quickly pushed the delete button. She hated being reminded of times and dates by her mother, as if she was a forgetful child. It pissed her off.

After taking a hot shower, she slipped into green satin pajamas. Sitting in her entertainment room, watching the late evening news, she sipped 1981 Armagnac Cames Brandy and ate crackers with brie.
Nearing three in the morning, Aubrey turned off the television, and went into bed. In the darkness, she obsessed about the murder case, feeling a rising anger toward this heinous criminal. Her last conscious thought before falling asleep brought a smile to her face. She knew the perp had failed to take one essential factor into consideration before deciding to perpetrate the crime. A factor that he didn’t predict, and in fact, couldn’t have predicted. And that factor would eventually lead her to discover his identity and get a conviction. He didn’t know I’d be assigned to the case!

Are you hooked yet? Before S. B. Redstone leaves, he's got some general information about himself for us as well. 

Sinister Obsession Author photo SB-Redstone.jpg
I write under the name S. B. Redstone. I began my career, after graduating from Hunter College, as a caseworker for the New York City Department of Social Services, Protective Services, investigating the horrors of the abuse and neglect of children. After attaining master’s degrees in Social Work and School Psychology, and then completing a post-graduate education in Psychoanalytic Therapy, I became a School Psychologist in the New York City Department of Education and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in a private therapy practice on Long Island, treating adults, adolescents, children, and couples. Always striving to improve my understanding of human nature, I researched and then wrote a personal improvement book, Taming Your Inner & Outer Bullies: Confronting Life’s Stressors And Winning, which offers remarkable insights into behavior, societal institutions, and relationships. I have written articles on the web concerning human nature, relationships and the abuses of societal institutions, given lectures, and appeared on radio shows.
Always having a vivid imagination and a desire to write fiction, I developed my writing skills by becoming a successful writer of short stories, all of which have been published on the web and in print. As an expert in the field of human psychology, I have been able to develop realistic characters from the dark side of human nature where my villains don’t aspire for happiness through personal achievement, but rather from their demented narcissistic schemes. Many of my characters have been taken from my clinical experiences and interesting people I know. I love romance in my stories. It is an essential element in my mystery thriller A Sinister Obsession and horror novel. Now that I am obsessed with writing “senior” romances, it has become further developed and heartfelt. I have two seeking publication at this time. I am a member of the International Thriller Writers Organization and Romance Writers of America.

Spinning tales on the wheel of fiction

If you've followed my blog you'll know I love to read and write. So I was delighted to be offered a free ecopy of Authorpreneur in Pajamas, by Geraldine Solon, for review. Not that I sit at my computer in pajamas. Getting dressed, like cleaning teeth, is an essential part of waking up for me, coming second, and third, only to drinking coffee. But, as an aspiring author, I'd love to be successful, so learning how to be an authorpreneur--in jeans and nice warm sweater--sounds great to me. So here's my review:

Authorpreneur in Pajamas, by Geraldine Solon blends friendly advice,useful lists of links, personal experience, and shared dreams to make a short, eminently readable, and pleasingly encouraging book for anyone like me. Enjoy with some bright easy-drinking 2-star coffee, and start using it.

The rest of today's reviews come from curious worlds and the spinning of curious tales, starting with, appropriately, The Tale Spinner, by David Donaghe, a cool genre, time and space spanning novel of a man who truly does get lost in what he reads. From Western desert to interstellar shift, with well-captured voices, noir-ish style, and the odd bedroom romp as well, it's fun, fast, furious, and elegantly plotted. Enjoy with a an elegant complex 4-star coffee.

The Exile’s Violin, by R. S. Hunter, is an intriguing steampunk tale with mystery, politics and warfare complicating the life of an orphaned young woman. Jacquie is a sort of low-born Princess Leia with the fighting skills to get out of most situations, and even a high-born side-kick to contrast with Han Solo. The story's fun, a little heavy at times, but with great dialog and humor. Enjoy with a dark intense 5-star coffee.

Joel D. Babbitt's The Trials of Caste takes readers to another strange new world, this one peopled by kobolds, and the author does a nice job of rendering the point of view of creatures other than man. There's a lot of backstory, but when the reader gets to the actual trials, where teens pit their skills in battle against each other (think Ender, or Harry Potter's Goblet of Fire etc) it becomes really hard to put this book down. Add some politics, the odd touch of betrayal, and a hint of magic... it should be an interesting series. Enjoy with several cups of elegant, complex 4-star coffee.

Clan Lord, by the same author, is set in a different world, with different creatures playing the starring role. In a nice twist, humanity are the outsiders, and the reader is led beautifully into the mind of a youngster on the edge of his society. Tree-dwelling never made such sense! Great timing, nicely compact snippets of backstory, wonderful characters, and a great sense of slowly learning what's going on, all make this a really enjoyable short story. I look forward to more. Enjoy its rich world-building with some 4-star rich elegant coffee.

Finally, returning to our own planet and the present day, with very real history, plenty of romance, a touch of mystery, and a touch of the paranormal, Déjà vu, by D. J. Starling invites readers into the lives of a young woman, deeply in love, but deeply suspicious of love. Is it chance or something more that brings her and her perfect soul-mate together? And how will history draw them back when it all falls apart. Second world war scenes have plenty of excitement and romance, and regression holds the key. Enjoy this lively tale with a lively 2-star cup of coffee.

When summers (and other things) aren't quite what they seem

Last week it seemed like summer was on its way. Taking time from weeding words from manuscripts, I crouched in old jeans to tackle the dandelions instead. The flowerbeds, those I got to anyway, have never looked so ready for summer sun. And then it rained. The sound of birdsong's gone again in the endless dripping haze. Squirrels have wisely gone back to sleep. And roads are tangled with branches fallen from trees--wouldn't you think they'd run out of loose limbs to drop on us eventually? The back yard's pretty tangled too. I'll be regretting filling the wheely bin with weeds when the sun comes back. Still, at least the rain gives me more time to read, even if neither flowerbeds nor Galilee's Gift are fully weeded yet. So grab a coffee and choose yourself a book. Or choose the book first, so I can recommend the perfect coffee for the tale.

My first is set in a very real world where everyday assumptions show there's more than meets the eye, even to rather down-and-out scary neighbors. Just like last week's summer that came before spring had really arrived, Norman, in A Man Called Norman, by Mike Adkins, is not quite what he seems. Mike feels called by faith to undertake a reluctant friendship, and both men turn out to have much to teach and to learn. A Christian memoir of real life that offers a nicely balanced view of the author's experience, A Man Called Norman is a quick intriguing read to enjoy with a 3-star well-balanced cup of coffee.

Motherhood isn't quite what it seems in The Memory Child, by Steena Holmes, which opens with a woman struggling to remember why she was so reluctant to bear a child. Deeply in love with her baby, she finds the thought of going back to work has lost its haunting allure. But what about the loving husband, so eager to become a father? We read his tale and wonder why he's still so far away. And then we learn. A rich, elegant 4-star coffee will go well with this unsettling but beautiful tale.

J.J. Dare's False World offers a vision of a world where nothing in history is quite what it seemed. Brave Joe lost his wife in the first book, False Positive. But it's easy to pick up the story here without reading what came before, and it would be far too simple to suggest the earlier book explains everything. As lives, nations and politics fall apart, one man holds a secret, seeks answers, and uses his military and intelligence skills, and a shrinking network of friends, to get closer to what he thinks he wants. Fast action, slow explanation, and an interesting future history; it doesn't quite convince me but it's fun (in a scary way). Enjoy with a bold dark intense cup of 5-star coffee.

My Lady of the Bog, by Peter Hayes, starts in a well-drawn real world too, as an American anthropologist in England finds himself drawn into the investigation of a curiously beautiful and well-preserved body discovered on the fens. And ancient book might hold the secret to the body's history, but Xander finds much more than he's looking for, and reading more right carry a serious risk of losing himself. Enjoy this oddly dark and twisted tale with another 5-star bold dark coffee.

Of course, in mysteries, answers are never as easy to find as they seem. Second Wind Publishing's multi-authored Rubicon Ranch is no exception. With a wealth of characters and suspects, great voices, and multiple secrets to hide, it's a classic Agatha Christie style who-dun-it, best enjoyed with a lively, easy-drinking 2-star coffee.

500 Miles to Go, by J. Conrad Guest, is very convincing real-world novel, telling the story of a racing car driver from first fixing cars with his dad, to winning the Indie 500, to nursing a glass half empty that half the world would envy. There's more to his success, and his misery, than meets the eye, but an intrepid reporter persuades him to tell his tale, and what a thoroughly evocative tale it is. If you've ever enjoyed the sound of those cars on the track, grab a 4-star elegant complex coffee and read this.

And finally, back to mystery again, in a cold real world blending solid police work, great characters, and just a hint of myth, The Cold Dish, by Craig Johnson is the start of a series my husband and I will both be enjoying in years to come. An aging sheriff looks toward retirement, aided and abetted by a wonderful Native American friend with the world's best dry sense of humor. Add big-city understudy, beautiful scenery, unpunished crime, small-town and reservation politics, plus murder, and the story's interesting, endlessly entertaining, thoroughly intriguing, and really good fun.

If only they could talk... The Guide's Voice

If you've followed my blog, you've probably learned that I love reading, writing, coffee, chocolate, and dogs. When a dog looks sad or hurt or scared, I always ponder, "If only they could talk." But author Susan E. Davis does more than wonder. She knows  the voice of a wounded pet, how to listen , how to hear and how to guide the pet and owner too.Today I'm delighted to welcome her to my blog, with a post about real animals, real owners, real healing, and that "Guide's Voice."

The Guide’s Voice, by Susan E. Davis, PT

“…..but they (the animals) can’t tell you where it hurts, how can you help them?”

                                   “I’ll be able to tell, they will let me know”.   My hands glide palpating gently, carefully along the rabbit’s body.  A slight rotation of a lop ear, a quiver below the skin. Here it is. A hip, inflamed and out of alignment. An easy fix.

A Great Pyrenees stands rigid, staring straight ahead, unsure of what is coming. 
“….but how can you work with him when he won’t cooperate and lie down?

                                 “We’ll just start here as he is. He will relax when he’s ready”.  I talk to the dog, show him the laser, “here, sniff it first, see?” I apply the light to his surgical scar, and then massage it slowly. Soon his breathing slows, his tail lowers, and he sits.  I continue on, speaking softly, explaining the procedure to the client, including the dog by name every few seconds. Now the dog is lying down on his side, head on my thigh.  The healing begins.

“…I don’t know how you’ll work with my cat; he doesn’t like anyone but me”

                        “It’s okay; he doesn’t have to like me, just the treatment.  The tuxedo feline lies in the windowsill, head turned away, ignoring me. I choose a ‘hand’s off’ technique, using pulsed electromagnetic waves from a loop placed gently next to his leg. A few minutes later he accepts a light scratch to the back of his head, another at the top of the rump. Now some massage strokes over the calf muscle, then a stretch to the Achilles tendon. Then I spot it, the slow sine-wave sweep of his tail. Next I feel it, the inner rumbling of his motor, the contented purr. He likes it.

The soft-coated Wheaton terrier has had surgery to repair a torn ligament. 

“I spent two thousand dollars to have this fixed and now she won’t put her leg down!”

                 “Don’t worry, she will”.  The dog is friendly and enjoys attention.  Her fur is shaved, electrodes applied to the skin, stimulating impulses contract the atrophied muscles. Range of motion exercises and massage are applied.  The leg is ready. The dog stands, but still holds the operated limb up.

“I told you, she just won’t put her leg down!!!”  “Money spent for nothing!”

                 “She will, she just has to re-learn” I gently lift one of her front paws to shake; her body instinctively shifts backward, the operated rear leg touches down!

“Oh thank god!” “She did it! But will it stay that way after you leave?”

                 “Here, let me show you what to do until the next therapy visit.”  I hold a favorite treat near the dog’s right ear, the side of the operation.  She turns her head to fetch the treat. Her body shifts to the right and the back leg touches down, and stays down.

And there are more encounters, Countless more.  A decision is made to write a book but should it be a textbook for veterinary professionals? No, for the pet owner, the consumer, that’s it.  Is it “Animal PT for Dummies?  No. It must be a guide that gives technical info without talking over heads nor dummy it down.  The right tone must come through.

Ultimately it’s the guide’s voice that comes through: talk to the reader like you talk to your clients. Weave in actual stories to make it come to life. Choose well.   
She is Chardonnay, a Weimaraner and long-term patient, afflicted with neurological and cardiac problems. Her treatment has been less rehabilitative and more as supportive. Her owner makes an urgent call.

     “She’s failing.  I think it might be her time.  Should I take her to the vet? Can you come? I need to know what to do.

     I come. The dog is calm but has lost the light in her eyes.  “Yes I think she is ready to leave us.  It will be easy for her, but hard for you.  

     ………“but how do I do this?”

      The guide’s voice answers: “through love, friend.”

And this reader almost cries in memory of much-loved four-legged friends... Thank you so much for this lovely post Susan, and for visiting my blog.

The haunting attraction of a cover image

Would you choose a book by its cover? Do scenes or people attract you more in cover images, making you pick the book from the shelf and turn it to read the blurb? But what if the image is simply a face--what part of that face will grab you and draw you in? Is it ethnicity, expression, beauty, convention, or more?

I'm delighted to welcome author annamaria bazzi to my blog today, revealing the wonderful (and haunting) cover for her new book Incantation Paradox, and introducing a truly intriguing protagonist, Dolores. I think it's the eyes that grab me in this cover. I wish I could say what the expression means, but to me, it's haunting, and makes me want to know more. So read on; enjoy the blurb. Over to you annamaria.

Book: Incantation Paradox
Author: annamaria bazzi
Cover Designer: Natasha Brown
Release Date: Undetermined
A car accident cuts Dolores Reynard’s life short, leaving her with a long list of unfulfilled dreams. When she awakens in a strange bed, inside a much younger body, and living with a new family—she can’t worry she might be going insane. How can she be a teenager again?

Jason Richmond understands the danger awaiting his new houseguest. Wanting to ease her concerns, he works to earn Dolores’ trust. But attraction flares in the most unexpected way, and he finds himself caught between setting the situation right and following his heart.

An enduring evil threatens not only the blossoming love but their lives as well. As Dolores and Jason struggle to unravel the truth behind her resurrection, they find themselves tangled in a web of murder, intrigue and magic. Only together can they hope to overcome the incantation paradox holding them captive.

Meet Dolores:
IncantationParadox-FacebookHello, my name is Dolores and I'm a forty-something mother of two high school girls, Ella and Chloe. On my way to their recital, I was in a car accident that changed my life forever. We all desire to be young again, but never in someone else's body. If you think magic doesn't exist, think again. There truly are people in the world who can wield magic, and I'm not talking the illusion kind we see on stage, I'm talking real magic, the magic you read in books with wizards and sorceresses. You don't have to take my word, read my story and find out for yourself the ordeal I had to go through to find my way back home.

Opening gates and closing doors with Christian Gothic fiction

I'm delighted to welcome Christian author Molly Noble Bull to my blog  today. I know her as an author of Christian historical fiction, but her latest book, Gatehaven, is classified as Christian Gothic suspense. I asked Molly what led her to write Christian paranormal fiction, and here's her answer, offering a deeper meaning than might at first be seen. So, over to you Molly, and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Readers, don't miss your chance to win a free print copy at the end of this post.

Why I Wrote a Christian Gothic Historical
by Molly Noble Bull

Like many people of all ages today, I liked scary books and movies when I was a teenager and after that. I could explain how to get a vampire to back off and also tell how to kill a were-wolf in one long sentence. I also read books on the New Age Movement and began to believe some of the things I learned in the books.  
I didn’t know that these practices were evil back then, and the mainline church I attended with my family every Sunday never warned me of the occult—at least in a way I could understand. 

Then I became a Christian. Everything changed. I began reading the Bible, and I learned that the things I previously thought were okay were anything but okay. In fact, they were dangerous and an abomination to the Lord. 

I felt led to warn others about the dangers found in new age/occult practices. For me, the best way to do that was to write a scary novel, hoping to attract people who were as “way out” as I once was as well as those who also wanted to learn more about what God hates and why.  Thus, Gatehaven was born. 

Though there are no vampires, werewolves, zombies or others such creatures in the novel, there are plenty of bad-guys—evil men and women who engage in practices forbidden by the Bible. It is my wish that those that read Gatehaven will not only enjoy a fast-paced plotline, they will discover what the Bible has to say about occult practices and a little about how to fight against them. The Bible is truth, and it is my deepest hope that God’s truth will set men free.

That sounds a pretty impressive reason to write, Molly. Thank you so much for sharing it here.

About Gatehaven:

Gatehaven by Molly Noble Bull is a Christian Gothic historical novel set in a haunting mansion in the north of England where Ian Colquhoun and Shannon Aimee battle a Frenchman with dark secrets—spiritual warfare vs. the occult.  Will they learn enough about God’s words to defend themselves and others or will evil overcome them?

Authors Bio:
Molly Noble Bull was born in Kingsville, Texas—home of the famous King Ranch. Her father and maternal grandfather were real Texas cowboys, and she enjoys writing western romances. But she also writes historical novels. Gatehaven, her long Christian gothic set in Europe in 1784, won the 2013 Creation House Fiction Writing Contest while still a manuscript, and Gatehaven is the novel being featured today. However, Molly’ first two published novels came out from Zondervan. Her Zondervan novels were later reprinted and published as Promise Romances from Guideposts. Molly also sold novels to Love Inspired and Tsaba House, and Westbow Press published The  Overcomers: Christian Authors Who Conquered Learning Disabilities, a non-fiction book she wrote with four other Christian authors. Molly owns the rights to her Zondervan romance novels now, and she will soon self publish The Rogue’s Daughter as an e-book. Rogue is a western set on a South Texas cattle ranch in 1890.
