I'm in the Spotlight!

Yet another Thursday is upon is, folks! :)

Today, I want to share something with you. I am currently in an author spotlight, so I figured I'd share my interview and video with you! :)

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

It’s not so much inspiration as much as it is the three dogs waking me up as they claim they are starving to death at 6 a.m. LOL.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I do some woodworking, wood furniture refinishing and such. It can be hard work at times, but it brings about a zen-like state for me, and I feel almost as emotionally satisfied working on a wood piece as I do finishing a story.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

In this current age of publishing, the industry is overflowing with books and authors. It can be very difficult to sell yourself as an author when you are one small fish in a very large and very crowded ocean. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but I am unlike any other author you’ve read before. My stories are character driven. What you will experience is an intimate, emotional experience that stays with you. You’re not going to get a lot of flash. No car explosions, no gratuitous sex. What you get are genuine, personal, touching, heart felt, emotional, cerebral stories.

Loving Her, The Series, Volume 1

In this series of stories, we meet a group of loving friends and couples. Each member of this group is diverse in personalities and abilities, but they are tied together by the common denominator – love. from Chelle Cordero, Combining Passion & Suspense

The Model

She’s exotic. She’s beautiful. She’s talented. She’s unique. She’s Stephania. A young successful model who started from nothing, she has experienced all the ups and downs of life. Never one to be kept down, she persists through life’s trials and reaches for the fairytale ending she has always hoped for. Stephania’s emotional journey is the fourth story in the Loving Her series.

The Mechanic

Linda – her name means beautiful… After facing rejection from her parents because she is a lesbian, Linda didn’t feel beautiful… she felt lost and alone. As a skilled mechanic, Linda built her business… Her love life was a different matter. Until Katie… Together they survived, and together they would face their future, finding hope and joy neither ever expected.

The Cop

Donna White is one tough cop. Behind the badge, though, is a very sweet, sad, sensitive soul. Truly a woman alone, Donna is simply trying to navigate her way through life. Who is Donna? She is dedicated, determined, distinctive and deep. Donna’s rich and touching story is second in the Loving Her series.

The Ballerina

A southern, redheaded, pickup driving lesbian ballerina? You bet! Meet Liz: a southern belle with flair. Vivacious, eclectic and graceful, she is unique to say the least. The first in the series of Loving Her stories, Liz’s story is the kind that stays with you long after you’ve closed the book.


Carol Mathers, in her mid-thirties, a highly sought-after IT guru in St. Louis. She has built a great life for herself with her partner, Alexandria, even though the two face prejudice as lesbians, and as an interracial couple -fighting tragedy and sometimes, triumphing amidst the chaos…


Carol — abandoned – waiting… for what, she couldn’t know. She couldn’t see that there was more life waiting for her. Carol is forced to face the demons of her past as well as begin to face life without Alex. Struggling to make sense of it all, Carol experiences her new life and all of the highs and lows that come with that life.

Unbreakable Hostage

Lareina Oliveira; she wants to share her passion for math. So it is back to school for Lareina… a tough Ph.D. program. A classmate is captivated by Lareina’s beauty and intelligence, and despite her repeated refusals to his attentions, he kidnaps her! Only her determination and wits can save her…

Amnesie, a short story

What happens to love when life changes? Two women in love, one debilitating change…

Trajectory, a short story

Joe Davis has spent the last four years of his life behind a scope as a sniper for the Detroit PD’s SWAT Team. A fateful call sends Joe and his team deep into the Detroit Ghetto; and reminds him that there is more to life than what’s on the other end of his gun.

Mom's Book Report for The Mechanic

Happy Thursday, everyone!

It's time for...another book report from Mom!

The Mechanic: a book report, by Mom

Best description of a mechanic: "Bob was short, stocky bald man. His dark blue overall suit was tight around his rotund belly."

Beautiful image of a city: "The sky was a jet black blanket with the stars as little shining decorations. A three quarter moon sat like a full, round, content Buddha belly. The Philadelphia skyline was a lighted mountain range, poking in the sky at various heights."

Red Flag: "Like a lion stalking and closing in on it's prey. Brittany inched in closer and closer until Linda backed into the wall."

Lovely compliment #1: "What are you a sasquatch that you need an hour to shave your hairy legs?"

Lovely compliment #2: "So first I use a face cream; Oh, and I have a concealer." "What's that: a paper bag?"

Great car description...even for someone who doesn't love cars: "A dark thunderstorm cloud grey covered most of the car. The hood, roof trunk and wheel wells all boasted this rich, dark intriguing color. A lighter, more misty grey ran the length of the body, covering the lower half of the door. The car's natural curves and chrome accents divided the two shades and enhanced the car's design. White wall tires only continued to enhance the car's appearance. A dusty rose interior completed the perfect, elegant romantic look."

Hope you guys liked this one! :)

Happy reading!!! :)
