At 18, Cibele, a student from Rio de Janeiro, dreams of a life in New York and moves to the big Apple, where she meets precocious Amy, a young scholar whose goal in life is to study sciences and astrophysics.

When she visits the Art Museum, Cibele is

impressed by a particular work of art depicting hell. Her horror of the painting grows when Amy introduces her to astronomy, and she associates the fearful black hole as an entrance to hell. Lost and confused about her life, she meets ambitious Agatha from Texas, who is in New York to succeed as a fashion model, and they become inseparable.

While trying to survive and achieve their goals, the three friends question the meaning of life, death, and the existence of hell, and their friendship ultimately turns into a maze of betrayal, jealousy, and selfishness.

Embark on a spiraling journey through Rio de Janeiro, Texas, and New York to discover the ambitions of three young women looking for the meaning of life. Through a series of events that prompt them to play with each others' destiny, they will face their ultimate challenge: is hell real?

Emily Macque, a young, beautiful junior partner in her father’s law firm, is but a heartbeat away from love or destiny. Duty brings Emily to a frozen Island estate two hundred and fifty miles north of Chicago. Devotion requires she delve into the property history to settle an estate probate. Death lures her into the arms of the shadows seduction created by the flickering light and dark shadows.

What flames the timeless passions spanning the decades? Love, desire or obsession?

Colin Jorgenson, once a Great Lakes mariner, is a strong man haunted by love and loss. How long will he return each night, gripped by desire, hoping to find the woman he has loved for a century?

Beneath the pristine Island beauty, passions hungered, lingered in the ardent darkness. His passions, fueled by decades of loneliness and longing, could no longer be denied. Will they face eternity together or love in secret as dark things are to be loved between the shadows and the soul?
Reviewed by Trisha Dawn for Readers' Favorite

It all started with death. Emily Macque's Uncle John died and she was sent by her father's law firm to handle his probate, personal affairs, and summer estate. She was also sent there to rest as she was recently diagnosed with a heart condition. Such is the beginning of Muffy Wilson's The Para-Portage of Emily. Emily's stay was supposed to be uneventful. However, as she dug deeper, she uncovered more than what was normal. Muffy Wilson wrote about a love which transcends time. In the Para-Portage of Emily, this love was put under scrutiny and was explained thoroughly.

The novel was exquisitely done. It was written with such grace that even when it took time to uncover all the mysteries, it was worth it in the end. The dialogues were cleanly written, too. This was a book I had the pleasure of savoring. How Muffy Wilson wrote it will give readers the right feel. The sensitive details were written with such grace that it didn't sound too much. In terms of the characters, they were like real life people. They were suitable for the story and not out of place. As far as I'm concerned, I'm in love with Emily. In addition to that, I was torn between Colin and Cooper. Overall, I think The Para-Portage of Emily is a wonderful, seductive read. It's definitely a page-turner. If you are a fan of romance, this book is an indulgence. It was mine.

Reviewed by Angelica Berglund on Amazon

This book is just brilliant and so damn good. I was hooked in the story within a few pages and I just couldn't stop reading the book. It was impossible to put it down once I had started. The story is very well written and unfolds very nicely for the reader. It drags you in and keeps you spellbound.
Their is a nice mix between paranormal, romance and mystery in the book and you can see that Muffy Wilson combines them very well in this book. I must say that just the way of combining things into one book is what makes this book so good. It is not just pure anything, but more than pure awesome.

I like how the story is told and how the book is written. The style and tone is very well done and the tone of the language and how the language is used to drag the reader in, is what makes the book so good. Emily is also a very entertaining character that I like a lot and at first I was unsure about her but the more I got to know her the better I liked her. The character development and how they grow and change in the book is also very nice and very well done. You can see the character changing and growing in the story and how they react to things in the story to a good way.

This is a must to read book because it is very well written with a very good storyline that is easy to follow, but still gives you surprises. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book!

'Game of Love'
“My darling…how I have missed you. While you were away today, my love, I thought of little else but you. I wrote to you. Let me read to you what I wrote…
There is a captivating sort of magical look in your eyes that tells me there are a few surprises lurking within that beautiful brain—and mayhap, those loins—of yours.

It is the kind of look that invites me to step closer, much closer, until we are touching
but not touching; just sort of "feeling" each other's presence.

My face hovers so close to your own and our eyes are not just locked into each other but more magnetically drawn, like moonbeams.

I reach up and brush the side of your face with my hand,

and your face is so close I can feel the warmth rising from you.

I keep my eyes on yours as long as the connection will last and then

I lean down and gently, ever so gently, brush my lips on yours.

It is positively electric and without noticing our bodies are suddenly pressed fully against each other pushing with a sense of urgency and need.

Our mouths press together and tongue seeks tongue,

warmth seeks warmth and need seeks need…

We kiss for what seems like forever or perhaps just an instant,

but who really knows…

Things happen for reasons, good reasons we have no business questioning or comprehending…

Here. Now. I want you…

I want to look into those mischievous eyes and see them soften with desire.

I want to look up at your face from my explorations of your velvet folds and see a look of complete passionate surrender overtake you.

I want to feel my touch move you to places we can only explore together…

I want you to sit astride me, so I can look up at you.

And I want you to ride me to the edge of the abyss, where we both hover,

hang in that sweet incalculable moment;

that moment of wanting to tumble over, to plummet, but wanting even more to NOT…

to have it last, as long as we can stand it,

there on the edge of cataclysmic satisfaction,

but holding it off, and holding it, and holding it, and….

I can't wait for when you finally gasp and sob and

your body spasms and lurches and you fall against my chest,

our bodies pushed together in the heat and the fertile humidity

and your hair cascades across my face and I breathe you in;

I breathe US in, rich, earthy, the smell of fresh baked bread, or just uncorked champagne.

Us, yes, us; our smell, our wonderful particularly unique aroma.

It is to be loved,

my darling,

it is for the loving of you…

It stays with me, my love, it stays with me…
“Come with me, my love, come. Let me show you the depth of my passion, the breadth of my yearning, the hunger I bear for only you in this, our game of love.”

“Colin, beloved…it is no game to me, for you are my life, my breath, my heartbeat.”

The woman rose to her petite height in her buttoned high-heeled boots tight at her small ankles. She was dressed in a broad skirt cinched tightly at the waist with a wide leather belt. Her blouse was broad and blouson with a cascading lace flurry, pinned by a jewel-encrusted cameo, from her small neck down. She wore a short-waisted, scalloped jacket, collarless, a single button under her ample bodice, sporting three-quarter sleeves which exposed an explosion of lace ruffles at the cinched wrists of the blouse beneath. Her wild auburn hair was tied up in ribbons and curls which he released with a mere tug on a single velvet end. The red-hued ringlets of silken curls fell around her shoulders to her back and breasts. The soft wisps of curls framed the beauty that was her face and her eyes softened with love and desire.

“Disrobe, Amalya, here before the fireplace, in the moonlight and heat of our love. Take the shackles which separate us off one by beautiful one and leave them in a puddle of cotton and gabardine at your feet. Leave but the pearls that adorn your earlobes and neck and let them pale in your shadow.”

“Colin, you flatter me so, but I adore it and would never deny your wishes. Here, sit in your chair, by Puppy, and I shall dance for you by firelight, moonlight and God’s light. For our love is a love that is pure and true. I waited my entire life for you to claim me as your own. I will not deny myself the pleasures of your desires—nor mine.”

"Captivating and Full of Charm"
~Ronald W. Sharp
"A wonderfully engaging story capturing the beauty and charm of Southern Africa!"
~Lionilde Laverman

Get Your Set Today
From Book 1: 
"Flame and Hope:An African Adventure" is the first book of the
series called "Fauna Park Tales" based on "African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends", a GOLD MEDAL WINNER on Authonomy, supported by HarperCollins. 

The following is an excerpt from the HarperCollins Children's Editor Review: "A vivid and engaging world of animal characters . . . the use of cleverly animalised verbs is very creative – Dolly Cat's 'whispurr'. The exploration of interrelationships between animals is a very successful topic in the children's literature genre, and you have created some great personalities – the stubborn goat 'Plump-Grump' and the conceited 'His Handsomeness, King Rat' being some of my favourites . . . "

Life takes strange turns for Flame, a puppy born in the African desert. Adopted by a free-range cattle farmer, the pup faces the challenge of proving himself to more than one of his new family. As Flame grows into a strong and brave dog, he finds friendship with many loyal furry and feathered friends who teach him to keep The Promise – protecting the helpless ones in Fauna Park, a secret sanctuary within the boundaries of the farm. One of his feathered friends is Hope, an elusive bird with strange pink eyelids who tells stories about a tall leader and his gang of villainous poachers, ups and downs of life in the bush and Flame's ingenious plans to banish foes to the Llokodi Hills.

These stories are perfect to be read before bedtime to younger children. Preteens will enjoy escaping into an imaginary world where many bush creatures always have hope that everything ends well when the sun goes down.

Book 2:
"Friends: An African Adventure" is the second book of the series

called "Fauna Park Tales" based on "African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends"

From the Author
It has been a true labour of love to create this parallel world - Fauna Park, many furry and feathered friends' secret sanc'tree - within the boundaries of a free-range cattle farm in the Molodi valley. Here they promise to look out for one another whatever circumstances they have, because not everyone is a friend, as Flame soon discovers. How he and his friends deal with disappointment, opposition, not breaking promises and being loyal are some of the stories told by an elusive bird who perches in the highest acacia just outside the kitchen door. From this spot, he sees and hears everything which happens in the vicinity.
When a sudden tragedy befalls the good humans as well as the furry and feathered friends, Hope the narrator, finally reveals who he really is and tells his life story.
Even though there is a definite plot running throughout all five books in this series, some of the individual stories are perfect to be read before bedtime to younger children, who will love the illustrations about their favourite characters - whether friends or foes. Preteens will enjoy escaping into an imaginary world where many bush creatures always have hope that everything ends well when the sun goes down.

Book 3:
"The Orphans’ Plight: An African Adventure" is the third book of
the series called "Fauna Park Tales" based on the original "African Adventures of Flame, Family, Furry and Feathered Friends".

"Bad humans are disturbing the peace in Molodi valley, and two small orphans are in danger. One of them, Larita, speaks the bush creatures' language – Faunalang – a rare and wonderful talent that they want to use. Alone in the desert, who will help them? Young and old will enjoy reading about the furry and feathered friends' latest thrilling adventures, when Molodi's bush creatures meet friends and foes in their quest to stick to The Promise to protect helpless ones in Fauna Park. Plump-Grump, the stubborn goat, and his harem do their bit, but what will happen at the farm while Flame and his friends are on a dangerous mission? His Handsomeness, King Rat returns, but is he a friend or foe?"

Prunes for Breakfast is seeking an ACX narrator! #RPBP


As audiobooks increase in popularity authors who want to keep their fans happy are required to explore, develop and produce high quality access to this format of book content delivery. It may sound simple enough, but there is more to it than finding someone to read your book aloud whilst recording it. Firstly, as an author you have to actually match the right narrator with the books content. 
On ACX authors can drill down using the search criteria to make their book open to auditions based on not only language and dialect but also gender, age and preferred style, such as formal, funny, inspirational, etc.

Author John Searancke is taking his recent release Prunes for Breakfast, a WW2 personal memoir, on the audiobook journey and is looking for a suitable narrator on ACX. 
He is looking for an adult male, using a British General dialect with an articulate voice.

ACX narrators can find the audition script here:

If you know a narrator that fits the bill please forward this blog post.

I wish John all the best for his new venture.

Reader Review
An Octopus in My Ouzo
5 Star Review by John Searancke

An Octopus in My Ouzo.

Island life: that’s a phrase that resonates with me, because I too live on a small island, though mine is considerably larger and more populated than that of this author. Words flow so fluidly from Jennifer’s pen that I was swept away by the veritable tsunami of her praise for the rocky outcrop in the Dodecanese that she has decided to call her home. She has a way with words, and they show most clearly when fulsome and descriptive phrases and sentences are used for the local flora and fauna, the ancient pathways and old buildings on the island, and last but not least the engaging villagers amongst whom she has chosen to live. Along the way there is heartbreak, but Jennifer shows her courage and moves ever forward to live her life as she wants to do, and for a single person with not a lot of Greek language, that is to be applauded. By the time that I finished the book, I felt that I knew her quite well, and that I had, in part, travelled along her journey with her. To say that I rushed off afterwards to look at her website and blog in order to see pictures of places named in the book gives an idea of the enthusiasm that such polished writing can generate. Deservedly a 5 star book.

I was provided with an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My first book Meeting Mr Kim: Or How I Went to Korea and Learned to Love Kimchi is available in e-book in the UK and paperback in Australia.

'Enjoyed MEETING MR KIM on S Korea... an interesting contrast to our recent experience of the north' - Neil M

I also compiled A Literary Feast, The Walker's Friend and The Traveller's Friend, and was co-editor with Amy Logan of AWOL: Tales for Travel-Inspired Minds.

I'm English - I was born in Manchester and grew up in Saddleworth on the edge of the Pennines - but have lived in Greece, Canada and France, with longish stays in Guyana, South Korea and Australia. I now live mostly on the Greek island of Tilos in the south Aegean.
