Welcome Cheryl St John

This Saturday, the Prairie Chicks welcome guest blogger Cheryl St John.

Cheryl St. John is the author of thirty-five Harlequin and Silhouette books. Her first book, Rain Shadow was nominated for RWA’s RITA for Best First Book, by Romantic Times for Best Western Historical, and by Affaire de Coeur readers as Best American Historical Romance.

Her 2005 Harlequin Historical, His Secondhand Wife, earned another RITA nod. Harlequin Historical Land of Dreams, Silhouette Special Edition The Magnificent Seven, and Harlequin Historical Prairie Wife each won Romantic Time’s Reviewers Choice Awards.

Many of her Special Editions made Waldenbooks Top Ten and Harlequin Historical Big Sky Brides anthology climbed to #35 on the New York Times list.

In describing her stories of second chances and redemption, readers and reviewers use words like, “emotional punch, hometown feel, core values, believable characters and real life situations.”

So join us this Saturday when Cheryl talks about 'Working the Middle out of Your Middle'. And no, she isn't talking about exercise.

Looking forward to reading it.

Read a great new sporting comedy, entitled Classes Apart.
This is an adult sporting comedy that follows the fortunes of Paul Marriot, the secretary of the Barnstorm Village Sunday soccer team and coach of a school cricket team in Yorkshire, England. The story describes the remarkable camaraderie between the players and supporters of this little club and their desire to achieve success. The team had previously been known more for its antics off the field, rather than their performances on it.

During his time at the club he meets and becomes involved with Emma Potter, who is the sister of James Potter, a major player for their bitter rivals Moortown Inn. Thus, begins an entangled web of romance and conflict. He also begins working at Derry High School, a school with a poor reputation of academic success, where he becomes coach of the school cricket team. Here he develops an amazing relationship with the children and they embark on an epic journey.
