New Book Release By Barb Daniels Dena


Now, Cat has always been a firm believer that each of us has a story to tell and at least one book we can write about our lives. I am about to share this with you and what my new friend, Barb, has done. Barbara released her new book, a collection of short stories that will “touch” your heart, afford you some giggles, and so much more!

I am about halfway within reading her book, and each time I read one story and say it’s my favorite, I read the next one and change my mind, Seriously! I feel it indeed will be the next “Chicken Soup For The Soul” big hit! Here is more about the author and her new book.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~  Barbara Daniels Dena


Barbara Daniels Dena is a new independent author of her eclectic book debut of “For the Soul: A Collection of Short Stories,” released in August 2021. Almost a memoir, this unique collection of inspiring short stories of ‘good ole fashioned living,’ along with many past and present memories and life experiences that tug on the heart, warming stories, and fictional tall tails delighting readers worldwide. The book is available for purchase on Amazon Books, Amazon Kindle, and many fine online book sites.

Barbara began writing at an early age as a lover of “Make-Believe.” Today, her writing has developed from memories of family experiences, various compilations of events in her life, and her love of animals. She is willing to admit that her vivid imagination plays a role in her stories. The author is an Illinois native who has lived in many places; as Barb says, like a free-spirited “Gypsy,” she has lived and worked in Illinois, Washington, Idaho, Georgia, but Ultimately, coming home settling back in the Quad Cities area of Illinois.

Barbara is a proud mother of two grown children. She was a business owner, ran a Temp Agency, then transitioned into her passion for floral design, opened, owned, and ran several floral shops. Her favorite flower is the “Casablanca Lily.” Her favorite color is Red, and when she isn’t writing, Barbara spends her free time oil painting, enjoys quilting, knitting, and reading.

Her favorite book is “Death Be Not Proud” by John J. Gunther. Her first love is and always will be playing with her fur baby, a little Yorkie named Zoe. She continues to write from her cozy nook as she gazes over a pond full of geese and ducks. On many days it is more gazing than writing.



ABOUT THE BOOK

For the Soul Kindle Edition


Memories and fiction fill this collection with humor, heartwarming compassion, and spine-tingling fright from the author’s own experiences and an imagination she can barely control. Quilts, children, and dogs have always played a large part in the author’s life. Therefore, it is not surprising to find stories of warm quilts wrapped around her tales or tails.

A trait the reader discovers in Barbara’s writing is that much like life, nothing within the covers of this book will be what one expects.

About The Book of Short Stories ~ Volume 1

This book, a collection of short stories, is something different. During the past two years, while writing the three novels now published as E-books on Amazon.com, my mind was constantly plagued with fragments of ideas for short stories. Some were so demanding, I had to push aside the novel I was working on to write that particular short story. During these two years, I’ve written 48 short stories. The stories themselves are quirky extracts, partly from my own experiences and partly from people around me. Most have a surprising twist at the end, which probably confirms how I see life. I have enjoyed writing these real-life stories, albeit with a little bit of imagination thrown in to the mix.

About The Author:
Wayne Andrewartha is an accountant by day, and a Crime fiction writer by night. He calls Auckland, New Zealand home.

Since he was a small boy, he has always wanted to write books. His love of traveling and his vivid imagination are obvious throughout his crime novels. His newest novel is packed full of action as Private Detective, Jake Shaw faces impossible odds to rescue the wife of a client. It is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages which readers of crime stories will thoroughly enjoy.

And there is more ….

Wayne has written two other novels, Diamonds of Death and the much praised sequel, Roll of the Dice. For action/thriller fans, they are a must read and highly recommended. In addition, he has written many short stories which are now in e-book form for all readers to enjoy.

Wayne enjoys reading good books, gardening, and ten pin bowling. He enjoys watching sports like rugby, motor sports, and football. He is a member of The New Zealand Rotary and was bestowed,  “The Paul Harris Fellowship Award” Rotary’s highest honor.

Wayne has his second novel series, just released a few months ago titled; What Goes Around, (Jake Shaw Private Eye, Book 1) Now available on Amazon Kindle and now his new book of short stories that both men and women will find enjoyable and interesting to read.
