Saturday Book Reviews

When social worker Jax receives nine missed calls from her older sister Lexie, she assumes that it’s just another one of her sister’s episodes. Manic and increasingly out of touch with reality, Lexie’s mental state has pushed Jax away for over a year. But the next day, Lexie is dead: drowned in the pool at their grandmother’s estate. When Jax returns to the house to go through her sister’s things, she learns that Lexie was researching their family’s and the house’s history.

More Than Authors – The Extreme Hobby of Linda Street-Ely & Michael Ely

Born and raised in an auto racing family in Indianapolis, competition and speed were bred into me. As a kid, I would race anyone on anything. Foot, bicycle, go-kart. I ran track and ran for fun. I raced against the clock on my morning paper route, always trying to best my last record. My father put me in quarter-midget race car lessons when I was seven. It was only natural when I learned to fly that I would want to race.

Creative Lives with Author Amy Anguish

There are very few crafts out there I haven’t tried. My husband (and my garage) can attest to that. Everything from jewelry-making to crochet and sewing to painting, I’ve probably at least dabbled in it. But there are a few crafts that are go-to’s for me when my writer brain needs a break from creating stories and wants to recharge by being creative another way.
