About Bonnie Bernard

I'm the proud birth-giver to The Midnight Hunter Trilogy - a paranormal, suspense-thriller that features a dash of romance, a sprinkle of mystery, an occasional murder, and a full, fun cast of Underworld characters. Some of them are kind, others are wicked - but all of them will tug at your heartstrings.

The Midnight Hunter Trilogy is published by Fin-S Press and is available in softcover and most ereader-device forms.

Review by: Joyce Wetherbee on Jan. 16, 2014 :
This book is different from others I've read by this author. Yes, it still falls within the fantasy genre, but there's a serious undertone of reality I've not yet come across in Bernard's other works. Backfire is a short story of a forty-something couple's motorcycle trip as they try to capture a positive experience before one of their sons succumbs to a terminal illness. Hot and thirsty, they stop in the town of Friday Morning and visit the Backfire Bike Shop. What ensues is probably the strangest encounter and conversation beyond what anyone could have imagined.

What would you do if it meant you could save your child's life? How far would you go? Who would you be willing to make a deal with? How much would you be willing to take a blind chance on? Will you take the deal, pay the price? Don't worry; you won't be making any deals with the devil, just Friday, the black cat that hangs out in the shop. Appearances can be deceiving. That is especially true for Friday Morning. A bit of suspense, a bit of the unusual. And the most puzzling is how anyone could love such a run down town.

In spite of the serious undertone to this story, Bernard's signature curve ball and wit are very much present and make a last second appearance at the end of this story. I think you'll enjoy this story as much as I have. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Backfire is another amazing short story by the very talented author Bonnie Bernard.

Rancid and Carly out on a motorcycle ride stop in a town called Friday Morning where everything may not be what it seems.

This is short story and I don't want to give away one single thing so I will just say, read this author's books and get to know what a great story teller she is. She will take you on twists and turns full of suspense and shockers. There is relatable humor and always great one-liners that make you laugh out loud.

I was gifted this copy but I would absolutely buy every book this author writes. WOW!!
