Fleeing his father's anti-Semitic organization, Charles Devonshire journeys into the most volatile land-grab in history -- Palestine. Charles pursues a beautiful but mysterious librarian, Gladia, who leads him into the elaborate Jewish underground. While joining their plight to reestablish a homeland, he falls in love with her and faces painful challenges within their culture gap. In the midst of battling the hostile inhabitants who also laid claim to Palestine, he searches for clues of his own troubled past.
Based on actual events “Rebirth” about the rebirth of Israel, draws you into 1948, into a world of intrigue, espionage and anti-Semitism. Witness how ancient prophecies were fulfilled against impossible odds as Jews built a nation and defied skeptics.
This gripping novel will reveal to readers how holocaust survivors legitimately reestablished Israel within three years of their liberation from the Nazis. People who experienced the ultimate low and then built a might superpower in the Middle east.

Who or what inspires your writing?
I wanted to write about actual events and also include a great story with the interpersonal struggles that go with the events in Rebirth. Many life-lessons can be learned in this story.

When did you know you would be a writer?
I've been writing since the 1970s and at about age 17, I knew I was a writer.

How long did it take you to write your first novel?
Three years.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Editing, editing, editing…Until it's just right. I spent just as much time editing and perfecting Rebirth as I did writing it.

Do you have any writing rituals?
I love to camp out at the local cafe where I live (in Southern California) get a salad and some grommet tea, and write all day.

Have you written any thing else?
I've written a non fiction book about prophecy and hundreds of songs, both with lyrics and music; Also scripts for professional videos.

Any advice to aspiring writers?
Don't wander with bits and pieces of writing this and that; write a consistent story and don't rush it or stop to write anything else until you finish it.

Who are your favorite Authors?
John Grisham and Nicholas Sparks.

What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
I like the same genre as I write in; Historical Fiction. Pearl Harbor was very good.

What are you currently reading?
I have stopped for the time being until I finish my next novel.

How do readers find out more about you?
Rebirth's website has everything, including lots of extra info about me, Rebirth's background and reviews from book critics.
Although writing Rebirth was a massive work of labor and love, it has been one of the most rewarding creative experiences I've had in my three decades of writing and composing various works.
I learned so much about how the human spirit can prevail through some of the worst tragedies and trials. Rebirth will open readers to an era of history that will both entertain and fill one with incredible acts of human bravery—all based on real events.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
