About this author

Reader Profile: First and foremost, I am a reader. From the moment I could hold a book, I've been fascinated with the written word. I enjoy almost everything, but lean toward romantic-suspense and magical realism. If you're looking for poor reviews, you won't find them here. The reason...life's too short to read bad books. If a book isn't at least three stars halfway through, I stop reading, and therefore, don't feel as though I have the right to review it. That's my policy! Please don't send me requests, though. If you are one of my cyber friends, I will eventually find you. :)

Author Profile: A writer of modern-day fairy tales, I write stories that overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, a hint of paranormal sometimes, and of course, tra

Carmen DeSousa Thank you for connecting. I'm pleased to meet you, Michael!

I'm looking for Amazon's explanation right now. I tried to have them send an email to all owners of the eBook set, but they refused. I've received updates on other books for years, so I assumed when I updated a new edition, they would inform readers. Evidently, that's not the case. They'll only notify readers when there's an updated book due to errors.

I'll be back shortly with their instructions. It's actually pretty easy, but you as the Kindle owner have to request your book be updated. :)(less)

All the novels in the Southern Romantic-Suspense Collection are stand-alone stories--NO CLIFFHANGERS--but each book has a slight connection to one of the other books, so after reading one, you can continue the journey and meet different protagonists with different issues and tragedies to overcome, and yet still get a glimpse of your previous friends.

Every story has a mystery, there’s always a g... Read more of this blog post »

Carmen DeSousa is 50% done with Hold on My Heart: Very good so far! As always, a chuckle or two in every chapter, but this story has a deeper story line than the last two I've read by Tracy Brogan, which I'm enjoying.

I think it means you're a realist! Most of by books usually start with a tragedy, and though I usually have some form a tragedy in the end, I will always leave you with something to smile about. I books that make me happy and sad, because it's real. Mix that with a little make believe, and I'm all in. So you're not alone, my friend. And that is why Sparks sells so many books, but I'm doing my darndest to catch up to him. Wish me luck! :)
