Nosy “friends” who got under my skin

Let’s get back to the topic of this post. Nosy girlfriends.  Last week two of my girl friends crossed the line by asking me a very personal question about my life. There are just some things I refuse to share outside my family. These “friends” considered that it was their right to not only shamelessly ask, they expected an answer.  They went into their high pitch whiny voices and said… “Come on, Anne-Rae… we’re your friends. You can trust us.”  Yeah, right.

I shared my frustrations with my real friends who also happen to be authors. Cairn Rodrigues (author of The Last Prospector) suggested that Christine Steendam (author of Unforgiving Plains) and I do a Q&A Google Hangout where we answer personal questions that may shock or entertain you.

Grand Prize – $30 Amazon Gift card



A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Ancient civilizations, parallel worlds, aliens, time travel, epic fantasy, dragons and college! Books #3 and #4 in the best-selling, award-winning Everville series can be read as stand alone novels and have it all for teens, new adults, and all ages alike.

Two very different worlds, Easton Falls University and the magical realm of Everville are in dire need of a hero. Owen Sage embarks on an epic journey of monumental proportions to save these worlds all while fighting to keep the world within himself intact. This quest is not for the faint of heart nor is it for the weak of mind—only the bravest will succeed. Discovering the well-kept secret of The Fourth Pillar of Truth is only part of the feat. Owen will have to outwit the ever-powerful villain Governor Jahal and overcome countless other challenges along the way. Amongst all of the dragons, giants and grand chaos, will Owen’s acquired skills and wisdom be enough to save both worlds or will peril be the ultimate fate of all?
