SPOTLIGHT AUTHOR - Bernadette Marie

A couple of weeks ago I took advantage of a FREE read from Amazon by Bernadette Marie entitled The Executive’s Decision. Although I found some mechanic issues in the writing, I fell in love with Zachary Benson, Regan Keller and her family. The Keller’s are a family that comes to the aid of one another no matter what and are fiercely protective of each other. Sometimes, you just want a feel-good story and Bernadette Marie has written an entire series.

Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of thirteen when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d share with her friends. Her journey into novel writing started the summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old typewriter.

   In 2007—after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial needs, and having five children—Bernadette began to write seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12 books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born. In 2011 she opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and has released her own contemporary titles. She also quickly began the process of taking on other authors in other genres.

Bernadette spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events—usually hockey. She is also an accomplished martial artist with a second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do. An avid reader, she enjoys contemporary romances with humor and happily ever afters.

Bernadette Marie is here today to share the latest in the Keller family saga. Love Songs brings a second generation Keller to the forefront with Clara Keller.

Warner Wright is looking for that big break into country music, but the reputation of his ex-stepmother is getting doors slammed in his face. But when he hears the angelic voice of Clara Keller—he knows she’ll be his ticket.

When the talented Clara Keller and the sometimes awkward Warner Wright get together there is a spark even bigger than Nashville. Opportunity is going to knock on their door, but fame can be a tricky bedfellow. 

Making beautiful music will be the easy part. Facing Warner’s past might corrupt them both.

Could the sun possibly be any hotter, or brighter, or…
Warner’s brakes screeched as he came to a stop at the stoplight he’d nearly run though. The glare from the hood of his Ford was blinding. The sweat on his neck was annoying. And the fact that he’d just been told he had no talent, well that was pissing him off.
He had talent. He had a butt-load of talent. Warner Wright had performed on every stage in Nashville. Oh, he’d performed with some of the biggest names when they were begging for a job. 
He let out a breath. So why had he been passed up?
Oh he knew why!
The reputation of his family came long before he started trying to sell his songs. One thing about being the ex-stepson of Patricia Little, was all of Nashville knew she was trouble. 

I hope you'll pick up one - or all - of the Keller stories and become one of the family.
