Meet J. Carol Nemeth and her new book Battlefield of Deceit

 A diary on loan to the museum.

An old Civil War house on the edge of the battlefield.

Could these two things be connected?

Gettysburg National Military Park historian, Chloe Rogers, begins her research into both: to prepare for a donor event and to discover if it can be restored for public viewing. Chloe and her fellow historian, Clifford Weston, discover a virtual Pandora’s box in the cellar beneath the house revealing more questions than answers. Park policeman, Blake Hunter, becomes embroiled in the old house mystery but gives Chloe cause for concern when her widowed heart responds to his attentions. She’s simply not ready to move on. Is she? When unwelcome things begin to occur, they realize they have to discover who’s behind them and soon. Will Chloe find the answers in a packet of old letters discovered in the cellar? Then there are the unexplained footsteps….

I asked Carol, "What made you have to write this particular book?"

 This is the fifth and final book in my Faith in the Parks series, a series that takes place in National Parks here in the US. This book is set at Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, PA. 
I've visited this park on many occasions and now live only an hour and a half from it. I've always been interested in it and particularly the stories of the people involved in this terrible battle. 
When the opportunity presented itself to add a book to my romantic suspense series set at this park, I didn't hesitate. It makes a great finale to the series, especially the ending (no spoilers here).

Ken's book: Devotions with a Friend


My husband, Ken Tatum, is an aerospace engineer retiree. He began working on a book of devotions when he was off work for 6 weeks in 2019 during the pandemic. One of his retirement projects has come to fruition as witnessed by this box of books. Devotions with a Friend, available on Amazon using the hyperlink, came about after 43 years of teaching Bible Study with adults. The idea of the book is to sit down with your Bible and a cup of coffee to meet God using one of the devotions. Two people on the cover suggests that sitting together with a friend can be an enjoyable time of sharing that coffee and God's insights with another.

Deborah Maxey's new book: The Endling

The Endling begins in Emerson Grace’s Blue Ridge Mountains, involves her dear relationships with her neighbors, her deceased grandfather’s influence, the mob, and a hit man. As an Endling, she is the last of her tribe and people. After her grandfather’s death, she is alone in her grandfather’s cabin when she discovers that a mob boss has put out a contract on her for something she never saw. How will she survive and protect her small community of mountain people and artists?

Deborah paints an exquisite picture of Emerson Grace, the mountains, as well as the characters that people the artist colony below Emerson’s mountain. The stirrings of the spiritual arise in nature just as her grandfather taught her to hear God and teaches the reader as well. Finding God among all the chaos is not so difficult after all.

 Available May 13, 2021!

I was given an advanced reading copy of The Endling.

What's hiding in the kudzu? is rampant in the South. It's a lush green vine that covers other vegetation. In doing so, it creates a fantastical landscape, mimicking giraffes, elephants, water falls, etc. But under the kudzu, everything else is dead. It cuts the sun and water from what it overtakes. Killing it is practically impossible.

Kudzu Sculptures is a Main Street Mystery with Winged Publications. Dorie Hudson is a new journalist for the small town local newspaper Daelin Gazette. Her first assignment is to find out about why the kudzu has not been removed from an old stand of loblolly pine. Ross MacAvoy, the owner of a nursery, normally receives a contract to take care of the kudzu. This year the mayor will not allow it. What's hiding in the kudzu and why? Who is he protecting?

The people in Daelin, Georgia, are like the kudzu sculptures. All sweetness and light on the outside but dead bones underneath. Along the way, Ross and Dorie fall in love, but he can't stay in Daelin due to something he finds in his grandfather's truck that he's allowed the kudzu to overtake. Will it's discovery destroy his relationship with Dorie?

I didn't expect this book to be a murder mystery. It just turned into one! It's a crazy feeling when your book surprises you!

I just submitted my latest manuscript to Winged Publications! It's going to be part of a boxed set of billionaire romances. Though Eddie is an heir to an ancient lordship and its fortune, he'd rather work in the basement of the British Museum uncovering the past as an anthropologist/archeologist. Caroline is a Rhodes Scholar and middle school teacher who is in Oxford to complete a masters level project about the lore and legends of England. Along the way she meets the charming Eddie. Look for Oxford Fairy Tale, coming soon!
