Indie Authors Who Have Inspired Me, Cheryl Bradshaw


imageCheryl is one of the most talented indie authors I know. She writes murder mystery novels.  Two of her novels from the Sloane Monroe series, Stranger in Town and Hush Now Baby made the bestsellers list of USA Today. Hush Now Baby made the New York Times bestsellers list in September 2014. She has just released Echoes of Murder, the second in the series, Till a Death Do Us Part Novella Murder Series. She also has a paranormal thriller series, The Addison Lockhard Series. She has many awards for her books.

Cheryl is much more than an author, she is an inspiration, role model and proctor for beginning authors as well as her peers. Besides writing 5 star novels, she runs the Facebook Indie Authors Group of 3000 plus named Indy Writers Unite! that provides help to authors. Cheryl also runs wonderful blog hops and giveaways.

I recommend Cheryl’s books for all you lovers of murder mystery. I gave her 5 stars in my review of  I Have A Secret:
I Have A Secret by Cheryl Braimagedshaw is book three of The Sloane Monroe Series. It is a fast-paced murder mystery thriller that grabs your attention from the start.
On a twenty-year high school reunion cruise, Doug, the class heart throb is murdered. Sloane puts on her PI hat and promises his wife to find the killer. Ms. Bradshaw weaves a web of mystery, violence and intrigue as our heroine uses her ingenuity to solve the crime. Every chapter brings a new twist to the story, which makes it impossible to put down. The ending is a complete surprise.
The characters are well drawn and several of them remind us of our own high school acquaintances. This is a must read for those who love murder mysteries. Amazon link

Indie Authors Who Have Inspired Me, Vickie McKeehan


There are many top-notch indie authors and most of them go out of their way to help their struggling fellow authors.

Vickie McKeehan is one of the most helpful award-winning authors I know. She has helped me with social networking, interviewed me and blogged about my books. Many of her blogs are devoted to helping oimagethers.

Vickie writes romantic suspense. She’s the author of three distinctive, very different series of books, The Evil Trilogy, the Pelican Pointe series, and the Skye Cree novels. She’s working on her 13th book, Sea Glass Cottage  the seventh story in the Pelican Pointe series. She has already selected a great looking cover.

Vickie loves the outdoors, loves to play video games, and enjoys watching football with the hubby. She’s convinced the best food on earth is French fries. Whenever she’s writing she keeps two things on hand. Chocolate and Cheetos.

Vickie is a member of Romance Writers of America.

Vickie posts copiously to social networks. She has more than 12,500 likes on her Facebook page and she has earned every one of them. I have been captivated by her Pelican Point series and I have reviewed two of them. My review of Hidden Moon Bay is as follows:
5 STARS Vickie McKeehan grabbed my attention on page one of her novel, Hidden Moon Bay, as she described timagehe brutal murder attempt on Emile Reed.
I remained glued to the pages for the rest of the story as Emile flees for her life from Chicago to a remote coastal town in central California, changing her identity to Hayden Ryan on the way.
As the main witness to a multi million dollar fraud, the perpetrators want her dead. She tries to lose herself as a nobody in the small community but she meets a good looking cop who suspects she has a “past”. This causes stress in their amorous relationship.
For an entertaining adventure and love story, I highly recommend Hidden Moon Bay. Amazon Link:

I strongly recommend Vickie’s books for an entertaining read.
