Nature Halloween, Damned if She Does, Friendship

During this season, life is about the kids. This is a time of magic, wonder, and things that go bump in the night. Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for most children in the United States but this year, Halloween, the way it has been celebrated for decades, is canceled.

Right in time to give a final push for the Biden-Harris ticket, Irish author Kathleen Kelley Reardon shares her newest novel, Damned If She Does, as it ”artfully stirs" what Kirkus Reviews describes as a "dangerous cauldron of ambitious scholars." "Informed and searing" in her "takedown of ivory tower politics," Reardon makes us work for answers throughout the "page-turning scenes" of this MeToo whodunit. She writes in her blog, “No use dignifying Trump’s sexist low blows. Better to make him squirm.”

We confuse our many acquaintances and business associates with "friends." We go for quantity, not quality. True friends are among the most important people in one’s life. Cynthia Brian reads, The Gift of Friendship, from her award winning book, Be the Star You Are!® 99 gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference. When you have such a friend, you have the greatest gift in the world.

Don’t Forget to VOTE for DECENCY and DEMOCRACY!

Her debut novel, Shadow Campus, was described by Forbes as “fast-paced” and a “masterful debut.” Damned If She Does (2020), a Manhattan-based sequel described by Kirkus as “informed and searing,” was selected for their September 2020 “Great Indie Books Worth Discovering.” Kathleen is a member of the Ireland Chapter of the International Women’s Forum.
