About the Authors: 

Candi Fox:

Candi Fox, co-host of the wildly popular radio show Candi and Company with over 900 thousand listeners began her venture in the paranormal at the tender age of two, when she witnessed her first apparition. From that moment on the paranormal seemed to follow her. No matter where she moved, the house she lived in the house next door, or the house down the street always seemed to be haunted. 

She often wondered if she drew the spirits to her. Little did she know that she was indeed a magnet of sorts. It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she found people who could not only explain her gifts, but would also help her hone them. Armed with this new knowledge she began to openly explore hauntings and other paranormal phenomena. 

Growing up in Indiana lent her the opportunity to explore many famous haunted places including the Hannah House, which was once part of the Underground Railroad. A little over two years ago she moved to Tulsa, OK and has began to explore the haunted landscape in a new state. 

Candi lives with her husband, and furry children in Tulsa. She is passionate about the occult, saving and rehabilitating horses, horseback riding, magic, all things mystical and has her Reiki Mastery. 

She uses her own paranormal experiences as well as her own life traumas to write from a grounded and realistic perspective about subjects that are hard to talk about and even harder to feel for yourself.

Zucchini Bread

I enjoy gardening.  There’s nothing more satisfying than planting a seed in the ground, watching it grow and picking the veggies to use in your recipe.  I especially like making Zucchini bread.  This is a nice moist recipe and I have gotten many compliments.  I have frozen this bread.  I wrap in plastic wrap then aluminum foil, after the bread is COMPLETELY cool.  This is an important step.  The bread must be cool before you wrap it for freezing. Enjoy!!

ZUCCHINI BREAD

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups shredded zucchini

1 2/3 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup vegetable oil

2   teaspoons vanilla

4  eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon all-spice

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

DIRECTIONS:

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease bottoms only of 2 (8×4-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray.
  • In large bowl, stir zucchini, sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs until well mixed. Stir in remaining ingredients.  Divide batter evenly between 8-inch pans
  • Bake 8-inch loaves 50 to 60 minutes ,or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling rack 10 minutes.
  • Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on cooling rack.
  • Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Tips:  you can add ½ cup chopped nuts and or ½ cup raisins.  I have also added 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and it was delicious.

Some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried… 
Pia has made a dead girl a promise. One that she is determined to keep. But is she prepared for the nightmare that’s about to be unleashed?
When Pia Williams, a gifted psychic medium, is contacted by the traumatized spirit of a young girl, her search to uncover the truth begins. The more Pia learns about the girl’s gruesome fate, the more determined she is to bring those responsible to justice. But is she prepared for the shocking truth of what she’s about to expose?
With more questions than answers, one thing becomes clear to Pia: the girl’s spirit is uniquely powerful, and she’s killing from beyond the grave. Who—or what—is the girl now? A victim, or a demon with murderous intentions? What really happened to her? And how far will Pia go to help her get revenge?
Accused of a murder the spirit commits, Pia reaches out to the only man who can help her: ex-Special Forces detective Nate Ryder. A man who is as dangerous to her heart as the situation she seeks his help with. Nate would move mountains for the woman he loves, but how can he protect her against forces he can’t even see?
As Pia and Nate are swept into an unpredictable situation brimming with dark, evil intent, they soon discover they have more to fear from the living than they ever did from the dead…

MY REVIEW FOR Demise In Denim

Demise In Denim picks up where Dead Man Walker left us, with Reagan Summerside on the run from the police in Boone’s car.  Boone the local lawyer once gang member finds himself in a heap of trouble.  This is a Three olive martini and a sprinkle donut problem.  A man is found dead and Boone is the suspect.  Now on the run it is once again up to Reagan to find the true killer, and do it before the killer realizes and tries to kill her first.

I have grown to love this series and enjoy reading about Aunt Kiki and BW Reagans pet dog.  Boone is another character filled with Southern charm.  I enjoy the way that the store Regan owns has become another character.  The store goes through as many changes as the characters. I love the progression of the relationship between Reagan and Boone.  I do hope to hear more from all of these characters.  A great series that I recommend you read and read in order.  If you are a cozy fan these are a must for your to be read list!!!

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, with the help of a gracious librarian who did not believe in age-restricted stacks, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I always loved to read, then I discovered writing, and I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.” She still reads voraciously, and always has a few books going in paperback, hardback, or on devices.
