I’m a retired attorney and former financial adviser (among other professional detours), and now a writer.
Please visit my website. You'll find links to the 3 blogs I maintain there, including the newest one entitled The Middle Age Follies. I'm sure it will prompt a smile or two.
The other two blogs found at my website: Looking Left and Right, and Life Will Answer [a book of the same name is now available here as well], were inspired by a bit of maturity and wisdom hard-earned after a frustrating professional career, together with a more sincere, committed look beyond my own four walls. This stirred things up a bit more—at least enough to motivate me to offer my two cents’ worth about what’s going on ... read more
Life Will Answer
Follow me on Twitter at DolphinHBooks
I am an award-winning writer, photographer and artist. I created Dolphin House Books to share my stories for children in an ebook format. These stories are written in the style of old fashioned children's books. They depict a simpler, more innocent time when it was safe for children to play outdoors and explore the world around them, a time, when it was assumed that adults in authority were both trusting and trustworthy.

With baby on hip and laptop on the other, and a couple of years later, Rhonda has published seven eBooks with a handful of spicy love stories waiting for the final touches.
When Rhonda isn’t crafting edge-of-your-seat, sizzling novels, you will find her with her children, watching soccer, watching a breathtaking movie, traveling to exotic places, doing (or trying) yoga, and finding new ways to keep her smile bright.

It was quite amazing for me as well while seeing it happening…

Nina S. Gooden
My name is Nina. That's a statement within itself, since I've "changed" my name at least once a year since I was ten. I stopped doing that around sixteen, mostly because I got bored. I was kind of a wild child, within the quiet comfort of my imagination. I chased Dragons and seduced Demons, all the while saving the world with hunky co-stars.
I was always knee deep in books and paper. My family always backed me, which is very important. I had a strong support system while growing up and I was lucky enough to have sisters who consume books at the same insane rate as I do.
I was a military brat and I have seen a lot of this fantastic country (and a few besides). I'm allergic to cats (though I have two). And whea ... read more

Das Schreiben war schon immer ein treuer Wegbegleiter. Anfangs waren es Tagebücher, Briefbögen, Steine und Servietten, die bis zur letzten freien Ecke beschrieben wurden, bis diese nicht mehr reichten. Mit der Geburt ihrer beiden Töchter widmete die Autorin sich Bilderbüchern und Kurzgeschichten. Der Ideenreichtum machte auch vor Dailysoaps und Heftromanen nicht Halt. Viele Seiten wurden gefüllt, aber die erste Veröffentlichung gelang 2007 mit einem historischen Roman, der unter Pseudonym erschien. Nach einem Agenturwechsel erlebte die Autorin private und berufliche Umbrüche, geriet in eine Schreibkrise und kämpfte sich mit neuer Kraft aus dem Dunkel hervor.

Like most males, I'm not too good at talking about myself, so I've put up some Q&As that Mary Metcalfe asked me during a recent book review she did on her website:
1. What is the working title of your book?
Love for Sale; Diaries of an International Dating Agency
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
I created and ran an introduction agency between 1991 and 1996. The book relates to events during that time.
3. What genre does your book fall under?
It is a true account of events that actually took place and the characters that actually took part, but the pathos, irony and humour of the situations is accentuated to make a more interesting read. In short, I think ... read more
