Hi, and welcome!
I’m learning daily how to be a better follower of Jesus. I’ve been married to my dear husband for over 17 years. We have four beautiful daughters, ranging in ages of 15 years to 9 years. I am going to school daily–the school of life. My goal is learning more of how to be the person God wants me to be, and be the best wife & mom to this family He’s blessed me with.
I work from home, doing secretarial work, running a small business creating stencils (you can visit us there at ezmarkstencils.com), and of course the many other things that a Mom needs to do to keep her home running. Unending laundry, cooking, cleaning, decluttering, and much more! 🙂
Here and there, I sneak in reading, which I’ve always loved to do. 🙂 It seems that most of my blogging has been about good books I’ve read. Probably because reading is such an important part of my life, and has always been. It’s more than a hobby, it’s a way of escaping reality, for a bit, a way of traveling–to other times and places.
Thanks for joining me today, and I’d love to hear from you!

Hi Rosalyn, thanks again for reviewing my book. I am an unknown so it’s always a bit scary to be on a blog tour like this one. I worked hard to make this a stand alone book so that readers wouldn’t feel left out – I personally hate that! Sorry that you felt that way. I would love to gift you a copy of the first novel, print ebook or audiobook – just so you can judge for yourself if it’s required! Just shoot me an email at email@example.com with your preference and details and I’ll get it to you! Blessings, Barbara
This is an offer I can’t refuse! 🙂 Thanks again!!
Hi. My name is Henry. I’m the PR Manager for Crime Wave Press and Close to the Bone, independent publishers of crime fiction.
I represent Brian Stoddart, an acclaimed writer of crime fiction and academic works. He just released the 4th book in his Inspector Le Fanu series, a historically accurate mystery set in 1920s India titled “A Greater God” (Selkirk Books). We thought you might be willing to review it. Here is a blurb:
Muslims are being murdered and communal tensions escalating as Superintendent Chris Le Fanu returns, reluctantly, to 1920s Madras from the Straits Settlements. He comes under fire, literally and figuratively, as more Muslims and policemen are killed by revolutionaries in clashes fomented by his boss, Inspector-General Arthur ‘The Jockey’ epson.
As the riots spread, Le Fanu’s trusted assistants – Mohammad Habibullah and Jackson Caldicott – disagree on both the origins and the handling of this new crisis. Le Fanu becomes further isolated as his only government allies, the Governor and the Chief Secretary, are being transferred away from Madras.
Even more pressure bears in on him when former housekeeper and lover, Ro McPhedran, falls critically ill in Hyderabad, and Jenlin Koh, his new love, is listed among those aboard a ship missing en route to India. Le Fanu’s entire professional and personal future is at risk as he confronts these challenges while Britain’s grip on India wavers.
“Brian Stoddart’s Le Fanu books are one of my favourite current series. Always superbly well researched & supremely witty these books capture colonial era India’s (particularly Madras) glamour, mores, hypocrisy, racism & skullduggery with delightful aplomb. Highly recommended!”
