Welcome to Following the Whispers blog

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.

“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf

“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Profile of a Hero


Name: Donovan Goldwyn
Occupation: Monster Truck Driver
Favorite Color: Red
Vehicles: a totaled car, a Chevy truck and a monster truck named Venom
Idea of a Romantic Date: taking his woman to an elegant dinner then enjoying her for dessert.
Hobbies: Truck racing, surfing, camping and playing poker

Dislikes: the men who murdered his brother, spiders

EXCERPT:
Chardonnay filled their wine goblets, and the pale yellow liquid danced with the flickers of candle flames. Beth twirled linguine noodles coated in a creamy pesto sauce with her fork. Jumbo shrimp and flakes of parmesan topped the green heap of pasta, and Donovan ate bites of tilapia swimming in a lemon and orange caper sauce.
They lingered over their wine, talking in hushed tones. “We came to find Buck and yet we’re having an elegant dinner.” Beth’s fingers trailed along the stem of her wine goblet. “What am I missing?”
“Nothing. Buck wasn’t home, so I took the opportunity to spend some time with my girlfriend.”
“I don’t get it,” she said while studying him.
“During Christmas, you were wound up and about to blow. Now you’re so calm. What’s changed?”
“I know where Buck is. That’s what changed.” His voice was hard, purposeful.
Beth nodded. “Well, I’m glad you’re relaxed right now. Even if it’s just temporary. I had a wonderful day.”

Donovan reached across the white tablecloth and took her hand. “It’s not over yet.”


BLURB:

An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.

Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.

When a tip reveals the killer's location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

The book so intriguing and perhaps a bit steamy during dessert.
