Bits About Maven

So…you want to know about me huh?  Don’t like the mystery of not knowing.  That’s ok.  I will tell you about myself.  I born and raised outside Philadelphia, Pa.  Ran away to college down in Georgia and stayed down there to teach High School Social Studies.  After two years of teaching I decided to move home and get my master’s degree in Higher Education Counseling.  I am an avid reader although it is getting tougher to get in as many books as I used to.  I have a 4 year old son who keeps me on my toes.  But, that’s about it for me.  If you have any questions leave a comment and I will gladly answer any question.

    Hey Maven, my Comment on my guest post from 7:00 this morning is still sitting there awaiting moderation. I wonder if others are waiting moderation after it. Can you take a look? Thanks!

    Dear Maven,

    Thank you for having me on your blog last month.

    Please drop in this afternoon (Tues. Dec. 18th) to
    the virtual release party for St. Nick’s Favor, the sequel to Chasing
    the Trickster.

    The party will be held from 1-5 pm EST. There will be novel and
    short story giveaways. Also holiday recipes and music (if I can
    figure out how to do that with Facebook). And there
    will be a book trailer for St. Nick’s Favor as well.

    Free copies will be available to reviewers.

    St. Nicholas asks Nina Weaver to be his emissary. Her mission is to
    take a one-way trip five years into her past to save the lives of
    thousands of children. Doing this will result in her losing the life
    she has built in New York City, including her relationship with
    Pascal Guzman. Nina faces down corporate greed, attempts on her life
    and the terrors of the Trickster God to keep her promise.

    Even if you can’t attend the party, please drop by to “like” the page.

    Hope to see you there,

    April Grey

    Thank you so very much for featuring Kilingiri on your site with an amazing review. It is lovely to know that you understood where I was coming from with the characters and plot and that you liked the descriptions! I’ve lived in most of those countries so was writing about them was a joy. Take care and thank you again. Janna G
