A Quirky Interview with Author Assaph Mehr

Sitting Down With  Assaph Mehr Author of Murder in Absentia


GenreHistorical Fantasy Bio I have always been fascinated by ancient Rome, from the time I was in primary school and first got my hands on Asterix. This exacerbated when my parents took me on a trip to Rome and Italy - I whinged horribly when they dragged me to "yet another church with baby angels on the ceiling", yet was happy to skip all day around ancient ruins and museums for Etruscan art.

A few years ago I randomly picked a copy of a Lindsay Davis' Marcus Didius Falco novel in a used book fair. I fell in love with Rome all over again, this time from the view-point of a cynical adult. When I decided to sit down and write a novel, the setting was clear in my mind.

Ren Lewis: The Man Behind the Monster (4 book series)
By
Sarah Noffke
✩✩✩✩✩

Last week I brought you The Lucidite series by Sarah Noffke. This week I had to tell you about the Ren Lewis series. Ren plays an important part in the Lucidites, but it is here where you learn all about the man, and why he is so mean. It is here that Noffke's talents to weave a story really shine. 
Ren is a dream traveler with the abilities of mind control, hypnotism, and reading thoughts. He is also a genius which sets him above most others in figuring out strategies, and stopping terrorists. However, this leads to a lonely life. Who would want to know exactly what your partner is thinking all the time? 
As his story unfolds you will find yourself unavoidably liking and starting to care about Ren. When I first read the Lucidite series it was for a FB reading group and Sarah Noffke joined us. Everyone who had read the Ren series kept talking about how much they loved him. I didn't get it. He's a majo…

Red and her Wolfe
by Blythe Reid
Publication date: August 8th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance


They call me The Wolfe.

I hunt women the way a wolf hunts lambs.

And I just found my latest prey. She’s a long way from home. We meet on the plane. And there’s nothing as vulnerable as a girl who’s homesick after her first trip abroad.

The girls I’m used to want my money and my looks.

This girl is too innocent for either of those things.

She wants me because of the way we lock eyes. The way we instantly hit it off. The way we seem to have been made for each other.

And I want her because I’m The Wolfe.

I hunt innocent young women like her.

It’s what I do.

My feet were curled beneath me as I leaned back against my pillows. I opened my book to the marked page and smiled to myself. With my schoolwork and chores, I couldn’t read as much as I wished. It had been almost two weeks since I last opened Flames of Sorrow.

No one understood my love for romance novels, but I w…

Eve Luccio waited years for her first love, but somehow their lives were never quite in sync. Now, at thirty-six, her only focus is completing the final year of her PhD.
