authorpictureRaquel writes across several genres including YA Steampunk, Gothic Mystery, and Suspense. Always looking for another adventure in which to partake she is never seen without her notebook.

As a teen she couldn’t get enough Bradbury, Asimov, Poe, or Matheson. They informed her love of science fiction, mystery and thrillers. After finishing school, marrying and starting a family, Raquel realized she’d fallen away from her love of the written word. She began in earnest in 2000 to hone her craft and connect with other authors and book lovers.

She connected with an agent and after signing with him, sold two series. One, a suspense series that also sold into foreign translation, and the other a dark gothic mystery.

Currently writing  YA Steampunk and Fantasy series, she endeavors to bring the same edgy characters and thrilling pace to those projects.

In the Beginning God Created — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole Banner“If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. But I can find no such case.” Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species

When I entered the world of apologetics after being challenged by an atheist some years ago now, I entered into the debate of creation vs. evolution. I ate up every single book I could find on the subject. At first, it was just the broader topics and areas of creation vs. evolution. Then as I became more familiar with terms and the arguments, I began to focus on the creation aspect of the discussion. And then it hit me — the philosophical implications of the times words of the those “In the beginning, God created…”

Those words span the purpose for our reason for being.

Write Stuff Author Spotlight — To Live Again by Unoma Nwankwor

To Live Again Blog Content

 

What happens when one is so obsessed by past pain that they become shackled by its invisible grip? That is the story of the heroine of To Live Again, Itohan Adolo.

Synopsis:

The devastation of Itohan Adolo’s tragic love story creates an anger at the world and distance from her faith. That is until Osaro Ikimi comes along. Although he wasn’t looking for love, he wasn’t one to let an opportunity pass him by.

Just when the couple tried to give love a chance. the opportunity for revenge against her ex falls in Itohan’s lap. Unable to let the opportunity go, she sets a plan in motion. However, the satisfaction she feels is short lived when she discovers that the plan will also destroy the new love she’s just realized she can’t live without.

Love isn’t supposed to keep records of wrong but that’s easier said than done. Will they lean on their faith to heal the damage or are somethings just beyond repair?

Excerpt:

“Now I see where you came up with your outlandish assumption.”

His voice caused her to stop digging in her purse for her keys and returned her gaze to him.

“May I?” He gestured toward the drawing.

She nodded, and he removed the tack that held it to the corkboard. She watched as he sauntered toward her. He stood before her. Any closer and his body would touch hers. She moved back, but he moved closer, until she was backed up against the Smart Board. Itohan decided right there and then, she was having a heart attack.

He stared down at her and she accepted his challenge holding his gaze. A vision of him taking her to the morgue because she’d died under the intensity of his gaze flashed through her mind. That could not and would not be her portion, so taking him on wasn’t in her best interest. He was testing her, and she was bound to lose. She should be running and not entering the ring with him. Warning alarms went off in her head. This was a dangerous game, so she gave in. With nowhere else to go, she stepped aside.

“Did that feel like I play for the other team?”

She was stuck. When she told her brother the story, he told her she had inadvertently questioned Osaro’s manhood. Right now, he was trying to prove a point and with the way her breath caught in her chest, he had accomplished his goal.

He bent down, putting his ear at the level of her mouth. “I didn’t hear you, Ms. Adolo.” His tone demanded an answer.

“No,” she whispered.

The story is a bit like a fairy tale but so much more. We see jealousy, pain, heartache, stubbornness and love! When all is said and done love wins out. This story has a Job like feel to it. When you read it you will understand. I encourage anyone that enjoys Christian fiction with a dose of multiple cultures and the war between love and hate to read this book. You won’t be sorry! I will definitely read more from this author.” — Amazon reviewer

Tonight on the Write Stuff –The Gevaudan Project with A. K. Preston

the-gevaudan-project.jpgSomething has been unleashed…

A team of naturalists find themselves facing a nightmare beyond anything they have ever known – and the product of unspeakable evil.

Philip Caster, a former Green Beret now working as a zoologist, leads an international team in Indonesia whose revolutionary new program may spell salvation for the endangered Sumatran tiger. They will release six artificially-conceived tiger cubs into the wild, accompanied by their surrogate mothers. The effort will prove the feasibility of in vitro breeding as a new tool against extinction. But its success is overshadowed by the sudden emergence of a horror beyond reckoning. Something has been unleashed in the forests of Sumatra. A life-form never meant to walk the earth. One that seeks humanity as its only prey.

As death unfolds around them, Caster and his circle of friends must uncover the truth behind an abomination: the instrument of dark and all-too-human forces pursuing a twisted ideological vision. Their creation has killed already – and their plans will consume millions more.

A Heart Can Be Broken — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerSome time ago, I experienced the loss of a very close friendship. Circumstances had caused friction and thus, the split. I remember to this day the physical sensations which had assaulted me.  I couldn’t quite catch my breath. My vocal cords tightened so much I had a hard time swallowing. In the center of my chest, I felt a peculiar ache. It’s hard to describe it exactly so forgive me if I sound a bit melodramatic  — a pain that did not sting, a cut that did not burn, but a hurt that burrowed inside of me. When I discussed this in one of my writer groups, after all, the physical abnormalities lasted for a couple of days, a mental health professional told me, “It sounds like you had a traumatic event which may very well be a broken heart. ”

A broken heart. As authors, we use the words to describe a character’s plight but perhaps we forget that our stories are ripped out of the pages of real life.

The words of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do with It?” ask a question about why fall in in love when a heart can be broken? In fact, she says, “Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?”
