Jeanine Kitchel, a former journalist, escaped her hectic nine-to-five life in San Francisco, bought land, and built a house in a fishing village on the Mexican Caribbean coast. Shortly after settling in she opened a bookstore. By this time she had become a serious Mayaphile and her love of the Maya culture led her and her husband to nearby pyramid sites throughout southern Mexico and farther away to sites in Central America. In the bookstore she entertained a steady stream of customers with their own Maya tales to tell—from archeologists and explorers to tour guides and local experts. At the request of  a publisher friend, she began writing travel articles about her adopted homeland for websites and newspapers. Her travel memoir, Where the Sky is Born: Living in the Land of the Maya, and Maya 2012 Revealed: Demystifying the Prophecy, are available on Amazon. She has since branched into writing fiction and her debut novel, Wheels Up—A Novel of Drugs, Cartels and Survival, launched May 2018.

Would you call yourself a born writer?

Not really.

What was your inspiration for Wheels Up—A Novel of Drugs, Cartels and Survival?

Mexico was my home for 15 years and once I moved there and opened my bookstore, there were just too many untold stories that needed telling. As a former journalist I started writing non-fiction, mostly travel articles for papers and websites, then I branched into fiction writing with Wheels Up. It deals with the Mexican cartels and how their presence has affected the peoples’ lives, from top to bottom. Because Mexico is known for its machismo, I decided to add a twist and place a Latina protagonist at the center. She inherits top spot in Mexico’s most powerful cartel when her drug lord uncle is recaptured. I thought it would be ironic for a strong-willed woman to be in the driver’s seat.

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

Social justice, relationship issues, self-confidence, corruption at high levels.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

Four years.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

I’m not as disciplined as I’d like to be! I now try, on my sequel to Wheels Up, to get in about an hour’s work in the early morning, before the day gets in the way. In the past I’ve found that afternoons from 2 to 6 were my best time to write. I still also write in the afternoons.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

Figuring out how to not add too much back story. I have four main characters who’ve all lead very interesting lives. It’s mostly about the adventure they find themselves on, but it also intertwines how the cartels got first a foothold and now a stranglehold on Mexico. After much hair pulling, I hired an editor and she gave me input that helped make the book a punchier read. It moves fast I’m told, and I credit my editor for that.

What do you love most about being an author?

Putting words together that fit, that sound good. Sentences are like puzzles—there’s a million ways to make a statement and for me, the editing process and making the words fit perfectly together is a challenge. And finding out that I can tell a good story. For that I am grateful.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

I self-published. It was a pretty intense process even though I’ve done it twice before with two non-fiction books, they were both years apart, and I had to re-learn the various steps of how to publish. I had a good source book, Dan Poynter’s Self Publisher’s Manual, and followed his lead. It’s a time consuming process, and at times overwhelming. But you just plug away and when the printed book is in your hand, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. I’m so glad I did it, and also that Wheels Up is out there in the world.

About the Book:

Two ranching tycoons. A decades-old feud. A sheriff bent on ridding the town of lawlessness . . .

In the midst of the trouble brewing in Laramie City in 1878, Julia Carson yearns to be free of her parents’ smothering and wonders whether she’ll ever find a man worthy to love in such a violent town rife with outlaws.

But when Robert Morrison sneaks onto her ranch the night of her sixteenth birthday party, Cupid shoots his arrows straight and true. Aware that their courtship would be anathema to their fathers, who are sworn enemies, Robert and Julia arrange a tryst.

Yet, their clandestine dalliance does not go unnoticed, and forces seek to destroy what little hope their romance has to bloom. The star-crossed lovers face heartache and danger as violence erupts. When all hope is lost, Joseph Tuttle, the new doctor at the penitentiary, is given a letter and a glass vial from Cheyenne medicine woman Sarah Banks.

The way of escape poses deadly dangers, but it is the only way for Robert and Julia to be together. It will take the greatest measure of faith and courage to come through unscathed, but love always conquers fear.

Would you call yourself a born writer?

Yes. I grew up with a writer-mother who inspired me to write from my childhood up.

What was your inspiration for Wyoming Tryst?

Wyoming Tryst is a very close adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, set in Laramie in 1878. That should tell all!

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

Lots! Issues about justice, racism (lots of Indian issues in the 1870s), honor, integrity, faith, and loyalty.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

It usually takes me about three months to write my full-length novels.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

I only write during certain times of the year, as I work full-time editing and coaching writers. But when I do write, after I’ve thoroughly plotted my novel, I get started early (around 6-7 a.m.) and spend full days crafting scenes. I sometimes will break up the writing to half days. But I try to write 6-7 days a week until the book is done.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

Creating a positive outcome for a tragedy. No, my characters don’t die, but they come close to it!

What do you love most about being an author?

Writing!

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self-publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

I self-publish all my romance novels and I prefer that, as I can control my pricing and promotion.

Where can we find you on the web?

Version 2Verlin Darrow is currently a psychotherapist who lives with his psychotherapist wife in the woods near the Monterey Bay in northern California. They diagnose each other as necessary. Verlin is a former professional volleyball player (in Italy), unsuccessful country-western singer/songwriter, import store owner, and assistant guru in a small, benign spiritual organization. Before bowing to the need for higher education, a much younger Verlin ran a punch press in a sheet metal factory, drove a taxi, worked as a night janitor, shoveled asphalt on a road crew, and installed wood flooring. He missed being blown up by Mt. St. Helens by ten minutes, survived the 1985 Mexico City earthquake (8 on the Richter scale), and (so far) has successfully weathered his own internal disasters.

INTERVIEW:

Q: Congratulations on the release of your latest book, Blood and Wisdom. To begin with, can you gives us a brief summary of what the story is about and what compelled you to write it?  

A: Here’s a blurby description: When Private Investigator Karl Gatlin takes on Aria Piper’s case, it was no more than a threat—phone calls warning Aria to either “stop doing Satan’s work” or meet an untimely demise.  But a few hours later, a headless John Doe bobs up in the wishing well at Aria’s New Age spiritual center near Santa Cruz.  Aria had ideas about who could be harassing her, but the appearance of a dismembered body makes for a real game changer.  And what Karl Gatlin initially thought was a fairly innocuous case turns out to be anything but.

Dispatching former rugby superstar and Maori friend John Ratu to protect Aria, Karl and his hacker assistant Matt are free to investigate a ruthless pastor, a money launderer on the run, some sketchy members of Aria’s flock, and warring drug gangs.  With his dog Larry as a wingman, Karl uncovers a broad swath of corruption, identity theft, blackmail, and more murders. But nothing is as it seems, and as the investigation heats up, Karl is framed, chased, and forced to dive into the freezing water of the Monterey Bay to escape a sniper.

Against the backdrop of a ticking clock, Karl races to find answers. But more murders only mean more questions—and Karl is  forced to make an impossible choice when it turns out Aria’s secret may be the most harrowing of all.

Blood and Wisdom fell out of me once I got going—telling me what sort of novel it wanted to be. The reason I sat down to see what would happen if I began a PI mystery was that the genre draws on my strengths—plotting, dialogue, and understanding people. The themes are simply the things that matter most to me.

BloodandWisdom_w12516_750

Q: What do you think makes a good mystery? Could you narrow it down to the three most important elements? Is it even possible to narrow it down?

A: Well, obviously, an important element is managing the mysterious/suspense element so the surprises make sense in hindsight, even though they weren’t discernible at the time. Another feature of a successful mystery is appropriate pacing. It’s easy to go too fast when plot is driving a genre, and it’s also easy to bog down in exposition when a complex story can’t stand on its own. Lastly, I need to care about what happens to the main characters, which usually means I need to like them. In real life, I don’t necessarily enjoy being around people who are mixed-up in crime and violence, so an author has to do some work here.

Q: How did you go about plotting your story? Or did you discover it as you worked on the book?

A: I’m a fairly extreme example of a seat-of-the-pants plotter. I start with one major event and a small cast of potential characters. In Blood and Wisdom, a body is discovered on the property of a spiritual teacher’s compound, and there’s a PI who gets involved. That’s all I started with. From there, one thing leads to another, often driven by dialogue that seems to fall out of the characters’ mouths. Everyone gradually defines themselves as I write myself into and then out of dilemmas and seeming dead ends. I’m at my most creative when I’ve put myself directly behind the eight ball.

Q: Tell us something interesting about your protagonist and how you developed him or her. Did you do any character interviews or sketches prior to the actual writing?

A: Karl embodies a lot of the same traits as myself, which is handy. I’m psychological-minded, and by virtue of writing suspense, I also see the world as a profusion of tangled power cords that require sorting and deciphering. So I created a protagonist who thinks the way I do—up to a point. He’s ignorant about a lot of metaphysical stuff that I’m well-versed in, but I still remember what it was like for me to stumble onto it. I’ve never done stand-alone character sketches. My imagination is a counter-puncher, not an initiator.

Q: In the same light, how did you create your antagonist or villain? What steps did you take to make him or her realistic?

A: More than one reprehensible character lurks in the pages of Blood and Wisdom, and they all stem from real experience. As an experienced psychotherapist, I’ve worked with, heard about, or ran from narcissists, sociopaths, and psychotic people. My villains, I think, come across as real as a result.

Q: How did you keep your narrative exciting throughout the novel? Could you offer some practical, specific tips?

A: I think that employing dialogue that announces something intriguing is a good tool for creating a cliffhanger chapter ending.  In a PI mystery, too, you need periodic action, and this needs to be something original, or at least interesting, aside from how it moves the plot forward. I think it’s also important to write a series of mysteries within the big mystery–small puzzles that get worked out gradually.  The reader needs to yearn for answers on a regular basis.

Q: Setting is also quite important and in many cases it becomes like a character itself. What tools of the trade did you use in your writing to bring the setting to life?

A: This is a weak spot for me in a rough draft. Since I’m working on the fly to develop characters and resolve the plot, I don’t do much with setting besides naming it, so I need to go back and flesh it out later. Even then, I have to work hard at this. I have trouble imagining detailed settings (I’m hopeless when I try to write science fiction), so I adapt places I’ve spent time in, and try to focus on the sensory experiences available there.

Q: Did you know the theme(s) of your novel from the start or is this something you discovered after completing the first draft? Is this theme(s) recurrent in your other work?

A: The same themes sneak into all my books, even when I try to keep them out–how people change. What underlies ordinary reality? Why do people commit crimes? How does love develop out of trauma? I set out to write a straight PI mystery, but my damned characters kept injecting extra depth into everything.

Q: Where does craft end and art begin? Do you think editing can destroy the initial creative thrust of an author?

A: No, I’ve never experienced good editing interfering with the creative process–quite the opposite, actually. Any book that becomes more readable, more coherent, and tighter serves creativity better.

I don’t feel I’ve ever crossed over from craft to art, personally. And that’s fine with me. I’m a big fan of craft.

Q: What three things, in your opinion, make a successful novelist?

A: Perseverance, insight, and craft.

Q: A famous writer once wrote that being an author is like having to do homework for the rest of your life. Thoughts?

A: Yup. It’s a curse and a blessing–like everything else. The difference between my happiness quotient when I’m engrossed in a project or I’m not is marked. I need to write to make my life work. If I were designing myself, would I choose this scenario? Probably not. But I could say that about tons of things, and were I completely in charge, in the long run, I’m sure I’d be a big mess.

Q: Are there any resources, books, workshops or sites about craft that you’ve found helpful during your writing career?

A: I’ve mostly worked out things on my own, by writing a lot of manuscripts, the majority of which were unmarketble–for good reason.

Q:  Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers about the craft of writing?

A: Trust your subconscious. It knows more than you do about some aspects of writing, and it has your best interests at heart.

First Chapter

Sharla

Sharla Ratliff finally figured it out. The key to protecting her heart turned out to be rather simple: think like a man and act like one too.

All that Steve Harvey crap about not giving up the cookies hadn’t worked out for her. Her last serious boyfriend wasted three years of her life. Five months after dumping her, Paul the Prick married some skank he met at the Starbucks on La Cienega and Centinela.

Every guy after him heaped on more hurt, though in much smaller doses. Sharla blamed her dating disconnections on the overabundance of phony, self-centered, knuckleheads in L.A. After taking herself off the market for an entire year, she was now ready to dip her baby toe back into the dating pool.

At 34, she was determined not to repeat the mistakes of her past. Her new dating rules were simple. No emotion. No expectation of commitment. Sex purely for her own physical pleasure. Guys enjoyed sex for what it was without hopeful thoughts of a relationship or even a call the next day. So would she.

And in just a matter of minutes, Sharla planned to put herself to the test with the man sitting inches away from her.

As Derrick steered his Escalade into her driveway, she leaned over and started massaging the bulge in his lap.

“Girl, you’re something else.” Derrick’s hand instantly tightened around the steering wheel. “I can’t wait to get with you.”

Sharla winked. “Good things come to those who wait.”

Derrick’s hazel eyes pinned her with a look so hypnotically lustful Sharla had to bite her lip to choke back a whimper. His titillating gaze would’ve melted the old Sharla right out of her red lace panties. Thank goodness that girl no longer existed.

“I like kickin’ it with you, Sharla.” Derrick’s voice had a raspy smoothness to it.

“Is that right?” She daintily cocked her head to the right. “Tell me more.”

“All through dinner I kept telling myself how lucky I was to even be in your presence. You’re beautiful. You’re smart as hell. You’re only nine years out of law school and you’re already at the top of your game. You’re every man’s dream.”

Sharla turned to peer out of the passenger window so Derrick wouldn’t see her eyes cross in skepticism.

“I bet you say that to every woman you date,” she teased.

Derrick’s strong fingers squeezed her thigh, just above the knee. “No way. I’ve never met a woman like you before. I swear.”

Normally, Sharla would’ve swatted away a hand landing that close to her goody bag on only the second date. But tonight, New Sharla was in charge.

Not that Sharla discounted everything coming from Derrick’s lips. She was pretty darn amazing. At five-eight, her body was tight and toned from years of competitive-level tennis. She dressed with the flair of a fashion model and enjoyed showing off legs even Beyoncé would envy. Her annual income topped six-figures, she owned her own home, and already had enough cash in her 401K to dump her day job if the desire ever arose. But the legal profession was a big part of her identity. She wouldn’t be giving that up anytime soon.

Derrick cut off the car, then leaned over and pressed lips as soft and sweet as a glazed donut against hers. The man deserved an A-plus in the lip-locking department.

“Let’s go inside.” He threw open the door and jogged around to help her out of his SUV.

Sharla’s feet had barely grazed the ground before Derrick curled his arms around her body like an over-anxious octopus. The firm tube jutting from his mid-section pushed against her stomach.

They kissed long and slow for several minutes before Derrick pulled away. “We better get inside or your neighbors are going to witness an X-rated show.”

Sharla giggled as he took her hand. When they reached the front door, she handed him her keys. It was important to allow Derrick to be in control. Or at least think he was.

Her best friend Reese didn’t believe she would be able to go through with this. Sharla wasn’t that kind of girl. She hungered for true love and longed to find her soul mate. But that hadn’t worked out. It was time to try something new.

So here she was about to get laid with no expectations whatsoever. If she never saw Derrick again, so what? At least she would have a night of fun under her belt.

Once they’d entered the house, Derrick pulled her into his arms again. He was much thinner than she liked her men. Although she found him attractive, he wasn’t her kind of attractive. Sharla preferred thick, well-built guys with a manly, not manicured style. Derrick was a pretty boy with light eyes, thin lips, and a shaved head.

For her first attempt at acting like a man, Sharla had intentionally selected a guy she wasn’t physically wild about. That, she assumed, would help keep her emotions in check.

“I swear I’ve been dreaming about getting with you,” Derrick mumbled, brushing her ear with those cottony-soft lips. “No female has ever got me this horny before.”

Probably because your cute behind never had to wait two weeks to get some.

Sharla made the bold move of calling Derrick the day before and inviting him to spend the night at her place. The man had become so tongue-tied with excitement he could barely form the words to accept her invitation.

Taking Derrick’s hand, Sharla led him down the hallway toward her bedroom. She turned on the crystal lamp on the nightstand and a soft, blue haze bathed the room with a sexy, nightclub ambiance.

Standing on her tiptoes, Sharla whispered into his ear. “Tell me what turns you on. I want to give it to you exactly the way you like it.”

“Damn, baby,” Derrick panted. “Everything. Everything turns me on.”

Sharla set him down at the foot of the bed, then stepped back and did a slow strip tease, sliding the spaghetti straps of her black dress off her shoulders and down her smooth arms. Once her dress, bra and matching red panties lay in a puddle on the floor, she stood with her hands on her hips, allowing Derrick to admire her nakedness.

No matter what her other issues were, body image wasn’t one of them. Her D cups stood as erect as twin doorknobs, hovering over a waist so tiny Derrick could encircle it with both hands. Her proudest attributes, her legs, were as long and sturdy as a prize stallion’s.

“I can’t believe I’m about to get with you,” Derrick muttered as he unbuttoned his shirt and unzipped his pants. Still sitting, he ripped open a condom. His hands moved so fast he had trouble unrolling it and barely got it on.

What? No foreplay?

After a year of celibacy, Sharla deserved a lover with some sensitivity, not to mention skills. He hadn’t even had the decency to ask what she liked. Did he even care about her feelings?

Old Sharla was trying to resurface, but New Sharla fought her off.

Just do it. For once in your life, experience an orgasm with no expectation of anything except fun.

New Sharla was right. She should just go for it. She was about to get busy with a man for whom she felt no emotional connection whatsoever. And that was progress.

Or was it?

Derrick gazed up at her, his tongue wagging like a thirsty German Shepherd. “C’mon, baby. Big Daddy is ready. Bring it on.”

She closed her eyes and tried to psyche herself up just as Old Sharla popped back into her subconscious. Shame on you! You’re acting like a slut.

It wasn’t a good sign that her gift box was as dry as the Sahara Desert.

“C’mere, girl.” Derrick licked his lips as he reached out for her. “I’ve been dying for some of this.”

The second his fingers grazed her waist, Sharla pushed his hands away and took a giant step backward, out of his reach.

“Um, I—I changed my mind,” she blurted out.

Snatching her dress from the floor, she covered her nakedness with a curtain of regret.

“I’m sorry. I just can’t do this!”

Title: The Spiritual Protection Prayer
Author: AnnaBel Silvers
Publisher: XlibrisUS
Genre: Self-Help
Format: Ebook

 

 

In the name and through the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Holy Spirit take control of our circumstances,situations, and conversations, through faith as we surrender our wills to You for this day.

All praises, honor, glory are given to our Father, God, whose love and presence,we have entered for He is worthy, mighty, and awesome to be praised.

First Stage, by surrendering your will to Jesus, who is Lord and seated at the right side of our Heavenly Father, you will relinquish control of any situation or circumstance for an entire day. The Holy Spirit who lives inside of you because you believe that Jesus Christ is your Savior has been given permission to control your life. You will no longer be in charge because the Holy Spirit searches all things, yes, the epitome of the Heavenly Father, God, Himself.

Second Stage,now that your life is prioritized, you may think all of Hell has been released on you. Why is this? Satan knows that you will begin to learn to have power over him, as well as his minions. It is God’s responsibility as our Heavenly Father to help you..now! He has been waiting for such a time as this. Satan is angry with you and will now indefinitely try to destroy you. However, you must remember, greater is He Father (God) in you than he (Satan) is in the world. You will learn how to live and deal through the power and the guidance of the Holy Spirit with your adversaries.

Third Stage,each and every day, you must commit and submit yourself to our Heavenly Father in the name and through the blood of Jesus Christ- through His Word. God only promises protection one day at a time. God knows the beginning and ending of your life- You Do Not! Jesus came to seek, save and protect us one day at a time from being eliminated by the adversary. You will learn what God’s Holy Spirit has to say to you on a daily basis. Once you start reading God’s Word, it will increase your desire to want to study to find out what God’s will is and what He is all about. You will learn to trust Him. Your life with His Word will speak to each and every one of your situations, regardless of what circumstances you are under. Aren’t you glad about that? Praise God!

Fourth Stage, if you do not know how to believe that the prayer will work or somehow feel inadequate that your faith isn’t strong enough, pray to our Heavenly Father in the name and through the blood of His Son,Jesus Christ, to increase your faith and belief. Difficult situations and circumstances will occur anyway. You will experience anxiety and despair because you are making non-spiritual choices in human flesh. The Holy Spirit will not and cannot coerce your will. Why not surrender your will to an Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent Heavenly Father? He already knows all about you. You will be delighted to make Him your Lord. He is faithful to the end. He loves you. You will learn how to become obedient and renew your mind daily. Praise God!

Now through placing your trust in God, through the power of the blood of JESUS CHRIST, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, your life will blossom with spiritual and physical delights. His promises of what is best for you will materialize. It is beyond your imagination and scope of vision of what His will for your life will become over what you believe it should be. You will delight to be obedient and a servant to God’s will.

Remember, if you have never been through anything, how can you teach others? We are our brother’s keepers. That is why Jesus came to save and give us life more abundantly.You will have grace for the pressures of the world, mercy for your failures as a human being and to keep both your heart and mind from pride, God’s Peace. Hallelujah

You Are The Righteousness Of God In Christ Jesus
