Author Interview #326: The Good Sister by Wendy Corsi Staub

October 22, 2014

Our interview is with Wendy Corsi Staub author of several books including The Good Sister (4.0 stars, 144 reviews). A brief book description before the interview: In New York Times bestselling authorWendy Corsi Staub’s electrifying new thriller,a mother races to save her daughter beforeher darkest nightmare comes true.

Sacred Sisters Catholic girls’ school has hardly changed since Jen Archer was a student. Jen hoped her older daughter would thrive here. Instead, shy, studious Carley becomes the target of vicious bullies. But the real danger at Sacred Sisters goes much deeper.

The only person Carley can talk to is “Angel,” a kindred spirit she met online. Carley tells Angel everything—about her younger sister, about school, about the sudden death of her former best friend. Angel is her lifeline. And Angel is closer than she knows.

When another schoolgirl is found dead, Jen’s unease grows. There are too many coincidences, too many links to her past. Every instinct tells her that Carley is the next target. For someone is intent on punishing the guilty, teaching the ultimate lesson in how to fear . . . and how to die.


1. What was unique about the setting of the book and how did it enhance or take away from the story?
A few summers ago, I found myself in Alabama with my husband and sons as part of my ongoing 50-state book tour. I’d been to Mobile but never to the eastern bay area, and I fell in love. We spent a week at the Grand Hotel, exploring Pointe Clear and Fairhope, and I knew I had to set my next book there. A steamy Deep South summer lends itself well to a suspense setting, from the violent thunderstorms to the pervasive sense of something heavy and oppressive hanging in the air.

2. What specific themes did the author emphasize throughout the novel? What do you think he or she is trying to get across to the reader? Read more »

All I Want for Christmas is You

4.2 stars on 586 reviews

Contemporary Romance

Santa Claus is going to have a rough season… Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone.

That’s why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn’t Santa’s bag.

But this Santa has a plan…

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone’s trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

A Guide to Meaningful and Significant Parenting

5.0 stars on 22 reviews

Non-fiction. Family & Relationship.

The aim of the book is to provide parents and educators with simple educational principles written in everyday language. Some theories have been included for better understanding, and examples given from real life. Simple ideas and exercises are given to shape parenting skills.

This book is definitely suitable for young parents who are just starting their family but also for more seasoned parents who are facing the challenges of parenting today. The educational principals presented are also suitable for teachers and educators and can greatly contribute to improving the classroom environment, helping them succeed in the tremendous job that they have taken on themselves.

It’s worth keeping this book handy, to look through from time to time in order to refresh your memory. From my experience I have seen that reviewing the material before giving a lecture or lesson gives me an advantage when teaching or parenting.

The three pillars of education are the foundation for developing all interpersonal relationships, starting from infancy through adult relationships with spouses, friends, colleagues and employer ”” employee relations. In all cases the principles remain the same. Efficient meaningful communication requires good listening skills and the ability to provide emotional acceptance. There is a need for limits and boundaries and appropriate displays of authority. On the one hand the authoritativeness cannot be too soft or feeble but on the other, shouldn’t be too stringent or lacking in sensitivity. To complete the picture we need the pillar of significance and meaning. This pillar helps us become significant figures in the eyes of others and challenges us to live fulfilling meaningful lives.

She didn’t mean to kiss him…  When dude ranch wrangler Charlotte – aka Charlie – Randall kisses Zack Harris in an act of empathy, she falls hat over spurs for the handsome military veteran turned cowboy. Zack has too many demons, however, and refuses to get involved. A year later, he’s still stonewalling, and Charlie needs to move on with her life so she can find a fulfilling relationship, not frustrating unrequited love. Putting distance between them seems the best way to get Zack out of her head and heart…but that means quitting the job she loves and accepting a position in Colorado.

He didn’t mean to kiss her back…  Growing up, Zack longed for a real family, and had one with his squad while deployed in Afghanistan. Now, he’s back in the States and doesn’t want anything messing up his new ranch family, no matter how much he’s attracted to the sexy, hard-working Charlie.

A kiss is just a kiss…or is it?   When Zack learns Charlie’s thinking about leaving the ranch, he decides to find her a boyfriend — someone so good, so perfect, she has a reason to stay in Montana. Until he realizes too late that the only cowboy he wants her kissing is him. Can he commit to love and convince Charlie not to leave? Or has she made up her mind to put the past, and the kiss that started it all, behind her and move on without him?

Jessica’s Footprints

Science Fiction

With a mastery of surprise and the suspenseful build up, Jessica’s Footprints mystifies and keeps audiences entertained with the precise pacing and eloquent description. There is a continual pairing of pretty, delicate aesthetics and dark visceral imagery. This novel is a true mystery for teens and adults of all ages.

The story starts in…20,000 BC where two children, a girl age nine and a boy age six, stroll to the edge of a marsh. They wear tight-fitting material that shimmers in the bright sun, and their shoes are off revealing webbed toes. The children explore the area. In thick foliage, they hear whimpering from small, brown, wolf-like pups with stripes similar to a zebras. The girl takes one of the pups. The loud angry cry of an animal frightens the children. They see in the distance a full-sized wolf standing upright on its rear feet. The wolf drops on all fours and begins chasing them. Fear registers on their faces. The howling wind drowns out their distressed cries. The girl sets the pup on the ground, and they dash up a hill running for their lives. The wolf is sure to catch the slower boy. The girl stops and bravely faces the approaching menace. Almost as if in slow motion, the wolf is closer to her…closer…ever closer. The wolf cry’s Arrrrrk! Arrrrrk! She can see white fangs. The wolf’s eyes flare wide… closer…

In current times, a seventeen year old girl on an archeological dig finds the children’s footprints left from 20,000 BC. The footprints become the discovery of the Century. What happened to the children from so long ago? Read more on Amazon.

A Clean Historical Cowboy Romance

Tessa O’Connor lives in a world of privilege and excess. Her doting parents want her to make a good match with a worthy gentleman and live a respectable life. She is beautiful and intelligent and she comes with a hefty dowry. There is no reason that she shouldn’t be able to find an eligible man and settle down.

Tessa herself is the reason. The men who are attempting to court her are, in her opinion, boring and conceited. Not only that, Tessa craves excitement and adventure, of which there is little in her social circles. By chance, she comes across an advertisement for a bride brokerage company seeking eligible women of good breeding to go west and find husbands.

One man on the list catches her eye and she begins corresponding with him, eventually agreeing to go to Montana to meet him. She can’t resist the possibility of finding someone different and even if she doesn’t, the adventure itself would be worth her time. Tessa makes a successful escape and sets out to make a new life in Montana.

Dean Samuels is a Montana rancher who is in over his head. His ranch is struggling and his two children are unruly and in need of a caretaker. It’s clear to his younger brother, Marcus, that he needs help. He tells Dean about a mail order bride service and convinces him that he should utilize it to find a wife.

After his wife, Sarah, had passed away, Dean never intended to marry again. His ranch and his children became his life. However, it becomes apparent that Sadie, his daughter, and his son, Jack, need stability and love. The demands of raising his children and keeping his head above water financially have taken a toll and Dean grudgingly gives in to Marcus’ idea.

Eighteen-year-old Ethan Jones has a secret that even his parents and foraging companions don’t know. And if that secret is discovered, he’ll be dragged away by the town’s draconian paramilitary Custodians to be dissected like a frog.

The only time he feels safe and free is when he’s out in the ruins of 2122 AD Melbourne, foraging for scrap metals. The dull, drudgery of his life, however, is shattered when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the degenerate, savage Skel. A girl who then breaks the town’s rigid conventions in her attempts to get to know him, even though she clearly carries the pain of a broken heart.

Meanwhile, the nomadic Skel savages are ramping up their attacks on Newhome’s foraging teams and infesting Melbourne’s ruins in ever greater numbers. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town’s doom?

Gone Bitch: A Parody of Gone Girl

Humor, mystery/thriller/crime/suspense

Regular price $2.99. On sale for $0.99!

Meet Nick. He’s kind of dumb. Meet his wife, Amy. She’s kind of a bitch. One day Amy goes missing. What happened? Find out…in GONE BITCH!

GONE BITCH is the hilarious new parody of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl which will have you on the edge of your seat AND rolling on the floor. All your favorite characters from Gone Girl are here…but way funnier!

First off, there’s NICK. Nick doesn’t seem particularly upset that his wife is missing, or particularly anxious to find her. But he is perfectly willing to stop by the searches for Amy…because he can try to pick up girls there using lines like, “I’d like to search YOUR woods.” Nick also loves lying to the police. For example, Nick’s alibi for the morning Amy disappeared is that he was hang gliding, taking a karate lesson, and shooting a major motion picture with Keanu Reeves.

There’s also AMY, Nick’s wife. Amy is basically the worst person ever. Which is unsurprising, since she’s a really hot girl. Therefore her one goal in life is to make her hot girlfriends jealous, no matter what it takes. Would Amy really stoop so low as to frame Nick for murder just to make her hot girlfriends jealous? If you don’t know the answer, then you haven’t hung out with enough really hot girls.

With every page of GONE BITCH the tension builds:  Will Nick go to jail?   Will Amy ever return?  Will Nick ever get over his diarrhea from eating a search volunteer’s Frito pie?

You’ll want to keep reading to find out what happens, but you might not be able to stop laughing long enough to do so!

Before you see the movie, read the book…that makes fun of the movie!

Beyond Shame

4.1 stars on 279 reviews

Erotic Romance

Book One in the bestselling, award-winning BEYOND series.

All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond-beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.

The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal-men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.

Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

We are highlighting two exciting New Book Releases for October 2014 from our New Book Releases List (click to see all the new releases). If you are looking for something new to read this is a great place to start.

Defining Destiny

Contemporary Romance

Growing up in the small town of Destinybay, Sara, Alex and Diana were as tight as the Three Musketeers, bound by a friendship forged in childhood and made complete by their vow to escape their hometown someday to find love, adventure and their own true destiny.

Never once in those young dreams did Sara believe she’d end up back here in the middle of her life, a divorced mother of her own rebellious teenager, with no job, no home and no future in sight. With Alex stuck in the same sinking boat and Diana ready to weigh in, Sara resigns herself to living with her mother. But time is not always kind and Sara discovers her hometown has been dying in her absence with many of those historic buildings now abandoned and whispering regrets around every corner.

Faster than she can rewrite her own life, Sara is opening a coffee shop downtown while navigating the stormy waters of rebooting her childhood friendships and fending off her childhood beau Sam, who is running a charter fishing business on the bay. Just as she and her friends begin to find their safe harbor, will secrets and jealousy create waves that threaten to destroy the future they are working so hard to build?

Sara, Alex and Diana will discover the power of childhood promises and regrets amidst the waves of change and loss that life holds. Can they recapture the strength of their bond in time to turn those regrets into grace and unlock the knowledge that it’s never too late to define your destiny and discover where your True North lies? Read more on Amazon.

Meet Me In Secret

Steamy Romance

Joss Meyer has never known stability. She has a failed relationship, a dead-end job, and nowhere to live.

Time is running short and with few options, and through the insistence from her online friend, Lucky, she glances through Craigslist and finds the perfect apartment, in the best neighborhood, for a price she can afford. Is it too good to be true?

Lucas Byrne believes in love at first sight and when he sees Joss, he knows she’s the one. He’s willing to do just about anything to get close to her, even if it means helping her attempt to get her cheating ex-boyfriend back. Giving her a place to stay, and skills to claim her man, he patiently hopes she finds herself in the process. But what if his risk doesn’t pay off?

Joss is uncertain of her desirability and is not sure what her future holds. Will she ever find love or is she destined to be alone? Could Lucas be her only friend in the world or will he prove to be another in a string of unreliable, untrustworthy men? Read more on Amazon.

What’s Done in the Dark

Mystery. Suspense.

Everyone has secrets, but some secrets can have murderous consequences in Krys Batts’s heart-pounding debut thriller, What’s Done in the Dark.

For nearly a decade, Mona Baker has lived a life of secrets and deceit on her terms. But when her wealthy husband, Aaron, is arrested, she discovers that he also has secrets, secrets that could get her killed.

When the police pressure Mona to cooperate with their investigation, she flatly refuses—until they drop a bombshell that shakes her to the core, leaving Mona no choice but to help them despite her mounting fears that Aaron’s powerful allies are more determined to see her dead than the cops are to keep her alive.

After barely escaping a series of attacks on her life, Mona is eventually forced to make a desperate decision that sends her down a violent path from which there is no return. Read more on Amazon.
