Tonight on the Write Stuff — Puzzle Master with T. J. McKenna

51ZubWRf4-LLAST LIVE SHOW OF THE YEAR!

Cephas Paulson was born to solve puzzles that nobody else can solve, a talent the U.S. government has exploited with deadly results. Living in 2202 A.D., his is a world dominated by apathy and hedonism where religion is banned and the few remaining Christians hide in the shadows. Known worldwide as “The Cult Hunter”, Cephas is largely responsible for putting them there. Now living a quiet life as a Religious History professor, Cephas is reluctantly called out of retirement when the government sends him on a high stakes mission designed to crush Christianity once and for all.

As the puzzles begin to unravel, Cephas struggles to find the one answer that has always eluded him, the solution to his own desire to explore faith rather than destroy it. To do so, he finds himself walking a dangerous line between two worlds and two beautiful women. One represents the temptations of the outwardly utopian world of man while the other the Godly world that he’s secretly trying to understand. Unfortunately, neither these worlds nor these women are truly what they appear to be, leaving Cephas to wonder if “The Cult Hunter” has become the hunted. Luckily, like the Apostle Paul, Cephas’ learns that God often chooses His champions from the least likely among us and even “The Cult Hunter” has a place in His plan.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Everyone Was Left Behind

In the midnight hours of April 24th, a prophecy fails and its prophet falls.

Pastor Graham Wilcox boldly predicted Jesus would return to earth on April 24th to rapture His faithful. But, when April 25th arrives, the world is the same, except for Wilcox, who is found dead. His gruesome murder rocks the community where Wilcox lived and the families who frequented the small church that he pastored.

To uncover the truth behind the murder, the skeptical Detective Daniel Seitzer must go to the place he dreads most: church. Along with his new, religious partner, Seitzer wades through a myriad of rumors, secrets, and strange connections as well as an astonishing number of people who had motive to kill Wilcox. Is the killer one of the pastor’s own congregants, or a shadowy figure on the periphery of the church connected with a powerful pharmaceutical company?

For Seitzer, a grieving widow, a multi-million-dollar company, and a faithful but broken family, the truth behind the events of April 24th will either set them free or bury those who have been left behind.

51Otfl5RZCL._UX250_Originally from the Ukraine, Iryna K Combs is still considered as a new face to America. Speaking three languages including English, that became just as natural as her native Russian. She grew up in a town on the south of Ukraine doing the same things other kids her age did. Dreaming, hoping and wishing. Growing up, she spoke absolutely no English and never even saw herself somewhere abroad. Nevertheless, writing a novel in another language! She was simply never interested in literature and was not an avid reader.
Iryna went to the local school that brought mostly negative experience in her life. But it shaped her throughout the years. Her college life was much better. She is a holder of bachelor degree in finances. Iryna also studied some psychology and self-studied body language.
In her first year of college she met her future husband online. When she finally got her fiancée visa, they both moved to the states, where soon after, got married. Iryna traveled to most of the Europe, Egypt, and Bahamas and still wishes to see more countries.
Iryna is an ex-model. In the first few years living in the states she did some modeling and acting. Photo-shoots, run-way and photo in the magazine fulfilled her childhood’s dream. A few years later she became a mother of a wonderful and most handsome little boy. Along with learning and experiencing motherhood, Iryna began to make hand-made jewelry and organic soaps. This hobby turned into her small business and became bigger than she thought it would.
In the last year Mrs. Combs discovered: “an author lives inside me”. Never did she think that she would write an English book and that she would love doing it. But she did! And yes, she loved it!
Amazon bestseller in all of its categories “Black Wings” was written by her dream that she saw many months before she actually began writing. The novel was accepted by a romance publisher only two months after she was done writing. Once her book was published, the publisher closed down and Iryna quickly found a new home for her debut. Being released on October 23rd, 2015 her novel rapidly gathered many editorial, professional and customer reviews. Only five months after release “Black Wings” became an amazon bestseller in all of its categories and stayed a bestseller for a week.
Iryna is planning on sequel as she says: “I have so many people asking for sequel that it practically inspired me to write one.” While she is leaving sequel for the end of the year of 2016, she is currently working on her next creation, realistic Biblical fiction.
Combs loves nature, going out with her family, gardening and cooking. She also plans to write her own cook book in the near future. Iryna is working on becoming a certified interpreter in English-Russian. She loves meeting new people and gets shy when given compliments. Combs loves to learn new things and thinks it is good to know everything since we never know what we might have to be doing. Iryna, age 28, is a proud Christian and loves learning more about her religion.

When the Watcher Shakes — Tonight on the Write Stuff

shakersThe walls were meant to keep evil out-but they only hid the evil within.

John has given up his ordinary life to find wisdom traveling the country and enjoy the freedom of living as a nomad. But when he stumbles across a mysterious town tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains, walled off from modern society, he discovers a group of people who could use some freedom of their own. Are they a harmless religious sect, or is there something less benign underneath the surface?

The townspeople are initially wary of their new visitor, but as John questions their way of life, some of them begin to have questions of their own. As the leadership’s tight control unravels, men and women break free from the chains of legalism-some literally, and some at the cost of their own lives.
