Interview - Closer Than Yesterday by S.W. Frontz





Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu (or elsewhere)? What keeps you glued to the screen? 

I dvr all the Chicago series that comes on NBC; Chicago Fire, Chicago Justice, and Chicago PD.  I’m also a huge fan of Blue Bloods.

Do you prefer movies or TV series?  

TV series, even though I know every word of all the Chuck Norris movies.  

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series? I like a series.  I’m a creature of habit so I prefer the familiarity of the same characters.  
Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?  Most of the authors that I read, I stumbled across by accident browsing through Books a Million.  Two that come to mind are James Lee Burke and his Dave Robicheaux series and Lee Childs and the Jack Reacher series.  I was looking for something to take on vacation about ten years ago and BAM had a special on JL Burke’s books, and I picked up #4 and #5 without knowing anything about him.  Same thing with Lee Childs-I think I read #3 first.  I’ve been hooked since.  I now have all the books in each of these series, and I re-read them when the mood strikes.
What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures (other than reading and writing)? I like to travel, but don’t get to go that much.  I have a birthday trip that I take during the summer, and a fall trip with my friend and fellow author Cheryl R. Lane.  My husband works all the time; the last vacation we took together of March of 2016 to celebrate 20th anniversary.  Before that it was 2009.  
What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure (ex: Star Wars movies, ComicCons, Cosplay)? Don’t have any. Never liked Star Wars or comic books.  
Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book? Yes.  I’ve done this on books that I have trouble trying to get through. 
When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a panster?  Definitely a panster. When I was in school, I never did my essays until the last minute.  I just sat down and started writing, even though we had to make notes and outlines as part of our grade. That was back in the day when we had to use the library and encyclopedias.  I’ve never used an outline, or notes.  I just write.

Excerpt:      

Prologue
Johnson City, TN April 25, 2016

Leslie Jennings carefully folded the last of her husband’s shirts and zipped up the suitcase.  She picked it up, struggling as she did.  Leslie was only 5’2, and very slim.  The suitcase was almost as big as she.  Leslie managed to get it to the floor, where she raised the handle and rolled it to the top of the stairs.  Now she had to get it downstairs without making too much noise.  Carter would accuse her of trying to destroy his Louis Vuitton luggage.   After ten minutes of pulling the luggage down one stair at a time, Leslie finally rolled it to the front door.  She ran quickly back upstairs and grabbed his garment bag.  She had already packed this and she hurried back downstairs.  
She was waiting by the luggage when Carter came downstairs, his briefcase hanging from his shoulder.  He was dressed in a sharp gray suit, white dress shirt, and patterned gray tie.  Leslie studied him while he glanced through his phone.   Carter was of average height, with graying brown hair and eyes.  He had sharp features and rarely smiled.  His only pleasure was making a sale.  He owned a real estate company and it was very successful.  They had been married for thirty years and they had no children.
Carter didn’t like kids, so they didn’t have any. He glanced up from his phone and gave Leslie the once-over.  She was wearing her scrubs, ready to go to work at the hospital after she dropped Carter off at the airport.  She worked the seven p.m. to seven a.m. shift when he was gone on business trips.  He thought if she worked at night, she wouldn’t be out doing anything else. She didn’t know why it mattered if she was seeing anyone or not. 
He was not the affectionate type and most of the time he acted like he hated Leslie. It wasn’t an issue anyway, Leslie didn’t go anywhere outside of work and her grandmother’s house. The only people she talked to were her co-workers and her grandmother Jody.  Carter didn’t allow her to socialize with anyone other than someone he approved, and he didn’t approve of anyone. “Looks like you’re ready to go.  Is this all my stuff?” 
Carter waved his hand over the luggage. Leslie nodded.  “Yes, that’s it.  I packed everything you had on the list.” Carter picked up his garment bag and gestured for Leslie to get his suitcase.  She picked it up and carried it to the car waiting right outside the door in their driveway that curved around the front of the house.  She couldn’t roll it; Carter would get upset.  She managed to get it in the trunk of his Mercedes.   He got in the driver’s side and Leslie in the passenger side.  Silently they drove out of the subdivision.
Carter finally spoke when they had gotten to the highway. “Tell me your schedule,” he commanded. “After I drop you off, I’m going home to get my car.  I’ll put yours in the garage.  Then, I’m going to Jody’s to fix her supper, then I’m off to work.  I work the night shift.  I get off at seven a.m.  I’ll go back to Jody’s and fix her breakfast, then home for a few hours of sleep.  Then I’ll get up and complete the to-do list that you made.”
Carter nodded in satisfaction.  “Very good.  I approve.” Leslie stared out the window.  How she would love to hit him right in his arrogant face. 
Well, that was all going to change tonight.  When she finally made it to work tonight, she was going to leave her cell there.  Carter had a tracking app on it.  She had already spoken to her supervisor and he had promised that he would help Leslie in any way that he could.  
Leslie was going to get on a Greyhound bus tonight and start her journey away from Carter.  She had been saving money for months, a little at a time and squirreling it away at Jody’s.  She would go get the money and see Jody one more time. After that, she was going to leave her car at the bus terminal and take the bus to Memphis, rest, get on another bus to New Orleans, and slowly make her way around the southeast coast to a little island town in North Carolina called Land’s End.
Leslie had heard Jody talk about the little town for years.  Leslie’s first cousin, Samantha, lived there with her husband, Andy, who was also the sheriff of the town.  Samantha had never contacted Jody, but through the internet, Leslie had been able to track them down for Jody. Even though she knew where they were, Jody wouldn’t contact her.  She was waiting for Samantha to come to her. She knew what Samantha had been through, and Jody didn’t want to bring back sad memories to Samantha until she was ready.  Leslie thought it was a good a place as any to start over.  Maybe she and Samantha could become friends. Carter didn’t know about Samantha.  Jody had quite a bit of money and owned a large historical home.
Carter thought that Leslie was going to inherit all of it.  He didn’t mind if Leslie took care of Jody, in fact, he insisted that she go there before and after work.  If he knew that there was someone else to split the inheritance with, he would be very angry with Leslie, even though it wasn’t her fault. Leslie was tired of being the recipient of his anger.  When they first married, she wasn’t aware of his violent temper or that he was a control freak.  She thought that the reason he watched her every move and told her what to wear, who to be friends with, etc., was because he cared about her. 
Her parents had died when Leslie was ten. Her grandmother had taken her in and raised her.  Leslie loved Jody, but she had missed her parents, especially her father terribly. That was one of the things that had attracted her to Carter.  He was several years older than she was.  He owned his own business, home and he was very settled and mature for a man in his early thirties.  
The first time she did something he didn’t approve of they had been married for a year. He had backhanded her and bruised her cheek so badly that she had to wear pancake makeup for over a week.  It took her while to figure out what set him off, but over the years she had managed to get into his routine and kept herself from getting hurt.
They were getting close to the airport and Carter started droning out instructions to her.  She could recite what he was telling her in her sleep; but she answered him in the way he liked for her to respond. No sense in getting him upset.  It was so close for time for her to leave; she could deal with him for a few more minutes. He pulled up in front of the doors in the unloading zone.  Leslie got out and waited for him to open the trunk.  She handed him his garment bag, then pulled his suitcase out.  He took the handle from her. “I’ve got it from here.  Get my car home and put away.  I will see you in a week.” 

Without any further words, he went inside the terminal and Leslie got in to drive his car home. He had always told her that he would kill her if she left.  When she had celebrated her 55th birthday in January, Leslie had known that this year was the year she had to leave.  Living like this was killing her, and she deserved a chance for happiness sometime in her life.

Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition By S. Diane Barry


What two things in a person’s diet do you recommend people change right away for optimal health?   

Pink Salt, instead of the adulterated white salt; and use food as vitamins.

Do you think organic is a better choice than regular fresh fruit and vegetables?

Yes, but not easy or cheap - growing your own and farmer's markets when possible.

Vegan is a sticking point. It means no leather, or silk, or any bug type dyes...total lack of animal. No Fur.  Vegetarian developed different labels like lacto Ovo for egg and dairy but meatless. Plants are important and quality food is important.

Balancing protein is possible with Vegetarianism, but takes combining some plant based proteins for the full spectrum of Amino Acids.   Quality Food, because you are worth it...and that means good cuts of meat, if that's what you want.  Fresh fruits and vegetables instead of processed canned vegetables (not referring to home canned items).

You mention pink Himalayan salt in your book, why is it better than normal table salt?

From all I have read and I continue to read, the raw salt is absorbed by our cells. The white salt is reportedly heated to 2500 degrees, and it restructures the crystals.  I do know that chips and barbeque sauce swells me up and pink salt sheds water from me.

Also, it occurred to me that we all have an electrical frequency?  right?  And Salt increases the flow of electricity? right?  (the potato light bulb science project)  So a properly salty body should conduct it's electrical frequency better, cells should fire better and expel toxins better...and Chakras are also an electrical frequency therapy/ discipline.  We need salt our brains are floating in a salty water and we cry and sweat salt.

The extra minerals in the pink salt seem to make varying differences in each individual, depending on mineral needs. Kinda like a tune up or an oil change and of course good water to flush.  You can bathe with it too.....the body will absorb some.  Cuts will heal, bug bites, less itchy.

List the foods you recommend people add to their diet to fight viruses. 

Basil is antiviral
Oregano is antiviral
Clove Oil fights germs and virus.

Other beneficial foods include: Kim Chi, Cabbage, Brussel sprouts, carrots...Onions and Garlic for those that can eat them.  There's always personal preferences and restrictions. But variety of color and flavor is important, and rethinking why we eat...it's not an olympic event, will help guide the foods we eat.  Do you want health or disease?


Cinnamon Sticks boiling on the stove, makes a great tea...and the house smells good.  Use food grade Cinnamon sticks, and not Christmas junk. It's also a good sugar buster.

Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition
My Journey Fighting HIV with Whole Food Nutrition, Herbs and Spices
By S. Diane Barry

Book Description:

I was diagnosed with HIV in January 2005.

Over twelve years later, I’m healthy and doing well.

I don’t have AIDS. My numbers are great.

I did this without prescription medications.

How?

By fighting HIV with whole food nutrition, herbs, spices, and healthy lifestyle choices.

Inktera    24Symbols     Scribd    Smashwords     Createspace




Excerpt:

There are many alternative therapies. I believe that food is the best medicine. Nothing outrageous but a healthy diet of fresh foods, full of nutrition, is a good start. 
Herbs and spices offer medicinal qualities that science seeks to replicate and reproduce. I believe in Mother Nature and choose the most natural options I can afford. Many will argue about the cost of health foods, but I will argue about the cost of health care -a cost I do not have!  I often have to remind myself I am HIV positive.  I am undoubtedly healthier than most of the people I know. I take no prescription medications other than an occasional muscle relaxer for neck pain.  I even rely on a capsaicin or cayenne rub for topical use instead of taking a pill. I only use the medication as a last resort.
Prevention vs. cure is an excellent battle plan if you’re serious about living healthy.
There are many other things that may contribute to my body holding this virus at bay. I am not a cigarette smoker. I am a Vegetarian.  I never was a clean freak, so I don’t use noxious chemicals to clean and pesticides are not my style.

  
About the Author:

It's 2017 and 12 years after my HIV diagnosis I am still healthy and on no prescription meds for HIV.

I wrote Fighting Disease with Whole Food Nutrition to start a discussion about healthy choices that save lives. Because no one seems to care about that. Not the doctors or specialists, or anyone I tried to contact to expand on why I am so healthy despite being HIV positive.

The answer is food. Real food. Not processed, microwaved, filled with preservatives and chemically created vitamins food. Real, whole, fresh food.

You are what you eat. Eat healthy to be healthy.

Lee Winter has worked as a newspaper journalist in almost every state in Australia for the past 28 years. In that time she has covered everything from courts, police, news, television, features, been a humour columnist and sub-editor, and of late, a newspaper glossy magazine’s deputy editor.

Interview - Omega's Choice by Lilli Carlisle



Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu (or elsewhere)? What keeps you glued to the screen?

A: I have a hard time finding time to watch television. I prefer to write and I read a lot instead of viewing.

Do you prefer movies or TV series?

A: When watching, I prefer series so that the characters can be fully realized. You need that extra time to become engrossed in their stories and to care what happens to the characters.

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series?

A: I prefer reading a series as opposed to standalones. I like to watch a community grow around the main characters and the addition of new characters who go on to having their own books.

Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?

A: I do both. Sometimes I’ll wait for a few books to be out before starting a series, but typically I can’t wait to read a book that intrigues me, and I buy it when the first book is released. I have no patience.

What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures (other than reading and writing)?

A: A guilty pleasure I have is this one spot on my front porch with my comfortable chair and I sit in it with a glass of wine and listen to music.

Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book?

A: Yes, and I really shouldn’t have. It ruined the book for me.

When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a panster?


A: I’m a bit of both. I plot the main points I want to hit and the rest I write as I go along. Sometimes I even surprise myself where the story ends up.

Tagline: Scarred but powerful, Black Ridge Wolf Pack leader Aldric Forst has been selected to mate with an Omega—but first he must protect her from the dark forces that would corrupt her magic.

Book Description:

In a realm of elves, ogres and white witches, where danger is ever-present, Princess Helena Lichtenberg lost her parents at a young age. Raised by her uncle and aunt, Helena values family above all else. Now, as decreed by tradition, it is time to select a mate.

HER ALPHA

Enormous, scarred and scary, Black Ridge Wolf Pack leader Aldric Forst has never drawn the eye of any Omega. Why would he? But, on this, the night of what he swears is his last selection celebration, everything is different. One of those most beautiful, magical and powerful women, the niece of the king and queen themselves, wants him. And Aldric has never wanted anything more in return. No force—no matter how dark, no matter how powerful—will take Helena from him.

EXCERPT:

Princess Helena took that moment to turn toward him again. Instantly, his heart raced, his palms became sweaty, and a nervous excitement rolled around in his stomach, which he wasn’t entirely sure he liked. After all, he was a feared warrior, people looked to him for guidance and strength, and now he felt like he was going to pass out because a gorgeous woman was smiling at him with such joy.
As Amalia spoke to Helena, the princess’s small omega stone on her forehead glowed, and it was impossible to miss the waves of happiness coming from her.
“Looks like the princess is happy you agreed to dance with her, brother.” Godric looked about ready to burst with excitement. “Should I call home and have the rest of our party get on the road?”
“No, not yet, Godric. Let’s see how the evening goes first. Then we can call in reinforcements.” Aldric didn’t want to get ahead of himself. He refused to be let down again. “What do you think Lady Amalia meant by she’d waited years?”
“I have no idea, but I do know the only way you’re going to find out is by asking the princess herself. Ready to waltz, brother?”
“At least all mother’s lessons are about to come in handy. What if she expects our normal life to be like this?” Aldric panicked.
“Okay, now you’re just looking for problems that aren’t even here yet. Get out there and sweep that princess off her feet with the alpha you are. Wait until I tell Cassandra she was right yet again.” Godric had a look of absolute glee at the prospect of making that call back to the pack.
“Yeah, well, if Cassandra was right about this, brother, then she also predicted that I would have to fight for my omega.”
Godric turned to face Aldric and all humor fled from his expression. “If we have to fight for your omega, then it’ll damn well be one we win, I can assure you of that. If this night goes well, I’ll be calling in more warriors as well. They will be here before the sun rises.” Both Theron and Tofa nodded in agreement, even if Theron continued to tap away on his tablet.

“We shall see, Godric. Let’s hope I don’t step on her foot. Then it may be the royal guard we need to fight.” Aldric laughed as he, Godric, Theron, and Tofa stood and made their way across the ballroom to stand in front of King Leonidas, Queen Alexandra, and Princess Helena.
Princess Helena was simply stunning; her emerald green eyes beamed with happiness as he approached. Aldric had never felt this level of immediate attraction before in his lifetime. Helena’s curly blonde hair was pulled away from her face, showcasing her royal tattoo and tiny vines twisting down her slender neck to her collarbone. Her smile lit up everyone and everything around her and her green eyes shone with happiness.
Aldric, Godric, Theron, and Tofa stood before the king and queen, bowing respectfully and waiting for King Leonidas to speak. The entire time, Aldric hoped like hell he didn’t screw this up.
The room had grown strangely quiet.
