Tess Allen and Peggy Eldridge-Love

His Wife's Diary (Love Bites)    
India Reinhart, a 33-year-old successful Kansas City graphic artist, is torn as to what is the right thing to do when she finds a diary in a box of old books she purchases at a yard sale. Things get very dicey once she steps deeper and deeper into the quagmire of the lives that have unfolded in the pages of that diary. It is a quagmire that India realizes is turning out to be almost as unsettling as the life she is already living.

To make matters worse, India finds herself attracted to, rather than repelled by, the man she has come to despise based on his wife’s written words. He's Langley Monza, a Kansas City favorite son and ex-NFL star. The unwelcome attraction is a very complicated emotion for her since she still has some unfinished business with her own ex-fiancĂ© and feels guilt and betrayal towards the diary writer whom she knows is dead.

 India discovers there is much more than just a broken heart hidden in the pages of Langley’s wife’s diary and it is that discovery that she realizes may easily drastically change the course of a number of lives, including her own.

Holding It Together With Band-Aids and Safety Pins

An engaging poetic look at the social, emotional, economic, and political struggles of the early twenty-first century that impact the lives of both young and old. It finds people where they are, who they are, and what they are doing to try to cope and understand their changing world. It whispers of the mysteries of complex relationships to the anguish of facing incomprehensible grief. It speaks of you and it speaks of me. Holding it Together with Band-Aids and Safety Pins is the second poetic offering of poet/playwright Peggy Eldridge-Love and dovetails nicely with her first award-winning collection, You Beckon. Peggy is also the artist of the cover watercolor entitled Uprising.

A Minute With Author Jennifer Chase

What's Your Name and the title or titles of your books?
My name is Jennifer Chase and I have four books available: Compulsion, Dead Game, Silent Partner, and How to Write a Screenplay.

What genre do you normally write in?
My three novels are thrillers with emphasis in the crime fiction or police procedural categories. 

Could you tell us just a little about yourself?
I have a bachelor degree in police forensics and a master’s degree in criminology.  Up until about five years ago, I worked in the corporate world in the area of business and accounting.  I decided to change my current path into the criminal justice field, but an interesting thing happened during that process.  My love of writing took over and I decided to write my first novel Compulsion in 2008. 
Will you give us a brief overview of your latest, or if you prefer, your favorite book?
Compulsion and Dead Game are two books in an ongoing Emily Stone Series that revolves around a heroine who hunts down serial killers and child predators anonymously, then emails her investigation to the local police.    
Where are your books available?
All my books are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and available by special order with any book retailer (online or in person).  They are in ebook and paperback formats.
Are you working on anything new at the moment?
Yes, I’m in the middle of my third thriller in the Emily Stone Series.  It will take my heroine on her serial killer hunt to the island of Kauai.
What one statement would you like to make that you think our audience and your readers might benefit from?
Great question!  Honesty, pure and simple, is what makes everything that much better for everyone.
Practice this simple attribute everyday, you'll be amazed at what can happen.

How can someone follow you if they want to stay abreast of what you are doing?
I welcome comments and questions!
