ONLY £0.99 for Limited Time to UK readers!! Wonderfully Dysfunctional: It Must be Genetic Volume 1 by Buffi Neal Proud to be Wonderfully Dysfunctional

Wonderfully Dysfunctional hit the top #50 of ALL kindle books this past year, selling over 10 thousand copies. Amazon rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars with 223 reviews!

The true story of... A woman who laughs at funerals. A gypsy mother who refuses to wear a bra and a father who refuses to leave his first wife. A brother who sleeps under the coffee table and a sister who was kidnapped. A cheating minister, a missing uncle and a feisty, red-headed grandmother who was longing to leave it all.

Buffi always knew her family was unusual, but she was lucky enough to escape that gene. Or was she? Joined by her siblings at the bedside of their dying grandmother, Buffi begins on a journey of self discovery as they recall stories of their youth including juicy family secrets, inappropriate practical jokes, abuse and betrayal. She is on a quest to find Normal but finds herself instead.

It Must be Genetic is about an American family of no particular importance, descendants of the once wealthy and revered Perry clan, but stripped of their family wealth during the Great Depression. It’s full of quirky characters like grandmother Mopsie; a sexy divorced mother of two in the 1950’s who would turn the heads of her conservative neighbors when hosting the best poker parties in town, but who can now be found sleeping her days away in the bed of a nursing home. The story climaxes when Mopsie accidentally reveals a secret that sends her family frantically searching through old documents to find the son she gave up for adoption half a century ago.

It Must be Genetic is about acceptance, forgiveness and the great capacity to love. The story is written from the perspective of a third generation divorced mother, Buffi, who realizes that the very traits that make her family dysfunctional may be the same traits that make it so wonderful. At 64,000 words, it's paced for a quick-and-easy read.

Interview with author of new romance release English Ivy,  Betsy Talbot​

Finally: Contemporary Romance for Women Over Forty!

Ever Have to Choose Between Work and Love?

After years of working at the US Embassy in London, forty-two-year-old American Ivy Cross is desperate for change. She longs to recapture her adventurous spirit and spice up her life before this little rut turns into a gaping chasm. Madrid-based CEO Ruben Alegre both infuriates and intoxicates her, and if he only lived closer she'd consider risking her heart. When the opportunity for an incredible new job in Berlin arrives in the form of billionaire Christof Brandt—a sworn enemy of Ruben— she wonders if the offer is too good to be true. Her Late Bloomer friends are split down the middle, offering support but no clear decision. Will she find a future with Ruben? Start a new career in hip and gritty Berlin? She can’t have it both ways. There are no easy answers, but Ivy can't deny that her life is about to change in a very big way.

I wrote a review for the shocking but brilliant Equus by Peter Shaffer! Yes, this is the play that starred the naked Daniel Radcliffe!

I just reviewed the amazing The Lives of Others by Neel Muhkerjee! It's a sweeping family saga the way you can only find them in India! I definitely recommend it to everyone!
