Finding Your Spirit Animal – March 9, 2022

Meet Wayne Turmel, author of “Johnny Lycan & The Anubis Disk,” M.E. Saladino, author of “The Love Letter Ghost” and Desiree Scott, author of “Crescent Vendetta.”


M.E. Saladino, author of “The Love Letter Ghost” – Born over a century ago in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Alexander Sullivan knew hardship having survived poverty, physical abuse, and the Spanish flu pandemic. Above all he knew the power of love. In The Love Letter Ghost, Alex reaches through the ages to expresses that primal emotion the only way his unearthly form is able, by channeling his spirit through a fountain pen he once owned in 1908. Now in the hands of New York novelist, Conrad “Mac” MacConnell, the enchanted pen becomes Mac’s ally enabling him to write heart-wrenching love letters to his fiancée, Angela Russo, after she breaks their engagement. Problem is they’re inexplicably written in flowing calligraphy and poetic language of the early 1900s by a ghost who insists on sticking his nebulous nose in Mac’s love life—a ghost with a hidden agenda. To complicate matters further, Angie’s Italian grandfather gets kicked out of his retirement home and moves in with the Russo family. The pasta hits the fan when Gramps hatches a scheme to reunite the couple enlisting Angie’s sister, Marie, and a neighbor’s ornery pet, Tiny—a small dog with a big attitude—that Gramps bribes into submission with enough pepperoni to give The Pope agida. Just as Mac’s letters begin to work their magic, Angie’s childhood nemesis, Bianca Lombardi, heiress to the Lombardi crime family fortune, pounces on their break-up as the opportunity she’s been waiting for and makes a move on Mac. Gramps’ plan would’ve worked if Angie didn’t catch Bianca with her arms wrapped around Mac like a starving anaconda. Now it’s up to Marie and Gramps to clean up the mess he’s made while Mac and the meddling ghostwrite love letters to Angie.

Wayne Turmel, author of “Johnny Lycan & The Anubis Disk”Johnny Lupul is riding high. He’s got a PI license, a concealed carry permit, his first big payday and a monster of a secret. After rescuing a bookie’s daughter from Russian mobsters, the newbie PI catches the attention of a rich, mysterious client. At first, it’s easy money. After all, magic isn’t real and those “occult” objects have to be fakes. But while chasing an ancient relic, an obsessed enemy from his past emerges. Johnny learns that the world is much stranger—and more dangerous—than he ever suspected. Malignant forces dwell in Egyptian artifacts, Romani superstition is fact, and being a werewolf may be the most normal thing he has to face on this case.

Desiree Scott, author of “Crescent Vendetta” – Wolf-shifter Vanessa Burns has survived a life of brutality and neglect. Being kidnapped, drugged, and forced into an underground fighting right is just the beginning of one man’s sick and twisted obsession. Travis Kameron, the Alpha of the Crescent Ice Pack, suffering a similar fate; wakes up to find that his life is about to be irreparably changed by the fierce she-wolf in the next cage. Can they put aside old rivalries and the past and work together to not only survive and escape but to weather the storm of complications, revenge, and betrayals waiting for them on the outside?
