Author Barbara Hinske Will Be Speaker


Barbara Hinske will be the guest speaker at Dog-Eared Pages Used Books in north Phoenix on July 10. Friday Night Writes meets most Fridays from 5:30 to 6:30. The cost is $5.00 which can be applied to the guest speaker’s books.

July first was the release date for Barbara’s latest novel. The series is about Maggie Martin, a forensic accountant who inherits Rosemont, a beautiful home in the Midwest. She moves there and finds corruption, a furry friend, and new love. That’s all in the first novel.

Barbara has given a number of talks around the Phoenix area on her promotional strategy. She has a strong internet presence and also depends on word-of-mouth.

Her first book, Coming to Rosemont, earned her the title of top debut author at her first appearance at the Tucson Festival of Books. It was also named the best in women’s fiction by BookBub.

My review of Weaving The Strands follows:

It is always hard to wait for the next volume in a series you love. Waiting for the latest Rosemont novel was especially difficult. I have thoroughly enjoy the first two, and the author carries parts of the mystery throughout.

The heroine, Maggie Martin, is a strong woman who doesn’t back down. Yet she isn’t afraid to be taken care of by her special man or to fret over a litter of motherless kittens.

When I found myself wanting to yell at the bad guy, and tell Maggie to “Watch Out!” I knew for sure this novel was a winner.

    Hello Rita, I have missed seeing you all at the writers meetings on Tuesdays as I have been very ill and in the hospital for a week with pneumonia and COPD. I am still recovering but will be going out starting next week for short little jaunts. I do have to manage my limited energy and the heat/humidity does not help. Anyway, just wanted to check in with you and stay in touch. Blessings, Dr. Mary Date: Thu, 2 Jul 2015 21:14:36 +0000 To: drmarymeadows@hotmail.com
