Frank Mundo meint:
The Brubury Tales is a modern version of the Canterbury Tales in Los Angeles just after the 1992 riots...written entirely in rhyming verse:

The Brubury Tales [by Frank Mundo] is a landmark book, in what is going to be -- and already is -- an exceptional, distinguished literary career. --Carolyn See of The Washington Post

Mundo's skill is astounding and has a natural cadence. These stories are intriguing and compellingly human, and soon enough the reading becomes listening. --Sacramento Book Review

With inspiration from many literary classics and plenty of original spin, The Brubury Tales is a fine collection and not one to be missed. --Midwest Book Review

The Brubury Tales is a brilliant blend of writing, combining the style of Chaucer while putting a new slant on the short stories of the classical writers. --Reader Views

A unique and powerful new book,The Brubury Tales draws upon Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and classic stories by Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, and Charles Dickens, to name a few. Frank Mundo takes risks with his writing, which is sensitive, thoughtful, and gritty. --Laura Frazin Steele, LA Books Examiner

Poet Laureate Award Nomination from UCLA and CAL;
Reader Views 2011 Reviewers Choice Award for Poetry Book of the Year;
2011 Bookhitch Award for the Most Innovative Book of Poetry; and

Guten Morgan!

Soeben als eBook erschienen:

Nur Samstag Nacht (Eine Kurzgeschichte)

1978 - Eine Gruppe von Teenagern aus den USA besucht Deutschland und alles verläuft nach Plan; bis zu jenem Samstagabend, als ihnen ihre Lehrerin Frau Heller gestattet, ohne Anstandsdame auszugehen.

I'm a U.S. based author with several books on Kindle. So far, the only ones in German are the short story above and a young adult thriller:
Die Lilienvilla

This year, two more of my novels will be translated and I'm eager to see how that works out. I really need to brush up on my German. I took it in high school but unfortunately, I've forgotten so much of it.

My books in English:

A Scattered Life / Easily Amused

For teenagers:

Favorite / Life On Hold

For kids:

Secrets of the Magic Ring / Celia and the Fairies

Hi there - I'm Alexandra Sokoloff, a California-born and raised, Thriller Award-winning author and sometimes screenwriter. I went to U.C. Berkeley, and yes, I am that radical! I grew up doing theater and did some improv after college, then decided I needed to make a living and moved to Los Angeles to write for film. I sold my first script to Fox and then did the job for ten years, selling original scripts (thrillers and horror) and doing novel adaptations for various studios. And then I snapped and wrote my first novel, The Harrowing, which sold in the US to St. Martin's Press and abroad to various other publishers (like Btb: Die Inschrift: Roman), and was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award (horror) and and Anthony Award (mystery) for Best First Novel.

I've been very happy to be an author ever since - I have four more novels out, five more in the pipeline, and two writing workbooks based on my blog and workshops: Screenwriting Tricks for Authors. (http://screenwritingtricks.com). I'm excited that the rise of e readers and e books gives authors a chance to publish so much more of our work in so many more countries.

My thrillers:

The Harrowing. (English). In German: Die Inschrift: Roman
The Price (English). In German: Der Seelenfänger: Roman
Book of Shadows
The Space Between
The Shifters (Harlequin Nocturne)

My writing workbooks:
Screenwriting Tricks For Authors (and Screenwriters!)
Writing Love: Screenwriting Tricks for Authors II

Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip 1,49

Harry Leslie Smith's second memoir, Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip is a love story in my mind and it's just brilliant. -Judging covers

The memoir is well written, with a compelling story that carried me along steadily. I like to find at least one reviewing pinprick, although it's difficult this time. The book ends with a cliff-hanger, making me wonder what came next. In all, I cannot recommend this memoir highly enough.-The Kindle Book Review
From the Back Cover
It wasn't meant to happen but I fell in love with the german girl. It was astonishing and something I didn't expect to occur, considering our countries had been at war for five years. They were our mortal enemies and my knowledge of Germany was based upon propaganda posters and dirty pub songs about the Fuehrer's testicles. I only knew Germany through news reels which showed an endless sea of jackboots flood across Europe. The picture magazines taught me that Germans were tall, blonde and athletic, with a penchant for gymnastics and torch light parades. My RAF instructors reinforced the prejudice that Germans were lacking in humour or kindness. "Woe to any poor bastard shot down over Germany, they'll skin the bugger alive, the Nazi scum." By the time I had reached Belgium and Holland what I had already learned about Germans seemed about right. After I saw my first starving Dutch child, I knew Germans were evil and sinister.

It wasn't until I crossed over into northern Germany and and saw the enormity of destruction the air war had inflicted on their population; I accepted that no one escaped sorrow and hardship in this war. My hostility towards the german people began to dissipate after seeing that their cities had been bombed back to the middle ages. A month into our occupation of Hamburg, I had seen enough emaciated german children living in helpless conditions to haunt me for the rest of my life. So, I dispensed with our orders to treat all Germans as hostile and suspect. It didn't take me long to understand that Friede was both my Beatrice and my Virgil. She was the one who was to lead me through Germany's post war inferno and to a greater understanding of Germany and its people.

Guilty secrets. A gruesome murder. A DEADLY MOTIVE

Deadly motive is the first book in a new British detective series, set in London and Oxford.

Deadly Motive (DS Jack Mackinnon series)

The poison
It was a vicious, calculated murder using the deadly toxin aconite.

The victim
Rich and powerful, John Weston had plenty of enemies, but DS Mackinnon and the Major Investigation Team need to find out who hated Weston enough to subject him to such an excruciating death.

The suspects
Even when the source of the poison has been tracked down to a laboratory at the University of Oxford, the deadly threat remains. The staff and students at the university all seem to have something to hide.

The arrest
After an arrest is made, his colleagues believe the case is all but closed but Mackinnon's nightmare is only just beginning.

I used to work in the chemistry department at the University of Oxford and my science background helped me when writing about toxins and characters working in the labs.

This British police procedural has 5 and 4 star reviews on amazon.co.uk. Priced at EUR 2,68 £1.95 or $2.99

Thanks for taking the time to read about Deadly Motive. If you think you might find it interesting, please download the free sample from Amazon.

For fast-paced, page turning action try The Scorpion or my first thriller in the series DEADLINE. Both are newspaper thrillers. Go behind the headlines!
