Originally from Syracuse, New York, Ms. Strader moved to Prescott, Arizona with her family in 1972. In 1976, she became one of the first women on a U.S. Forest Service fire crew in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson.
Summers of Fire: A Memoir of Adventure, Love and Courage is her first book, released on May 1st, 2018 by Bedazzled Ink Publishing. She is currently working on a prequel.
In addition to writing, Ms. Strader is a landscape architect, certified arborist, and watercolor artist. She currently lives in the same area where her Forest Service career began.
About the book:
Linda Strader became one of the first women hired on a fire crew with the U.S. Forest Service. A naïve twenty-year-old in the mid 1970s, she had no idea that she was entering a strictly man’s world, and would soon discover she’d face many more challenges than “just” fighting wildfires. Told with honest emotion and authentic dialog, Summers of Fire is an adventure story beyond battling fires and discrimination. It is a vibrant story of love, strong friendships, and heartbreak, over her seven years pursuing the exciting, although sometimes exhausting, soul-fulfilling job she loved.

Upcoming Author Troy Michalski
Name: Troy Michalski(pen name T. F. Chowski)
When I started writing: I became a story writer last February, but I’ve written lyrics since I was a young child.
Why I chose to write fantasy/adventure: I grew up spending countless hours playing video games and watching Harry Potter movies so the day I chose to write a book it was an easy decision to choose the fantasy genre.
Fun fact: I was born with transposition of the great arteries, meaning my heart and veins were tangled backwards at birth, which caused me to have two open heart surgeries. Of which, I died on the table of the second surgery.
If you wish to contact or follow Troy:
Title of book: Realms of Aura: Rise of the Infected
While running from the fearsome Hunters' Heads, and their equally deadly comrades the Hunters, they are forced to travel in the Doomlands of the realms. Along their travels, they face the mighty Beasts of Ruin, eight powerful beasts that used to be the alpha-beings of the realms long ago.
As the biggest festival of the year approaches, a danger grows deep in the Doomlands of the Tundra of Trudendale. The Hunters fall under attack more and more often forcing them to expand their numbers, thus creating more threats to Zaleon and the other multiaurables. As some of the Beasts of Ruin begin displaying the abilities of some of the different auras' magic they pin the six realms against the wall forcing them to call upon the assistance of the four multiaurables to help them stop the rise of the infected beast and the man who seems to be controlling them.
The six realms are each powered by a different aura although all six auras are present in each realm in various amounts. The realms are Cloud Temple(Teal aura), Tundra of Trudendale(Navy aura), Caverns of Crossfire(Scarlet aura), Hollows of Shadowsfall(Violet aura), Canals of Silohan(Emerald aura), and Shores of the Storms(Nyanza aura).
Side note: This is the first book in a three, possibly more, part series. The second is in the beginning stages of outlining. It has also undergone editing before the query process. This is his first novel

I enjoy reading devotionals because they give you a reading plan and they usually have a table of contents where you can look for topics that you need or want to know about.
The Authors description:
Enjoy a faith-filled message of encouragement every day of the year! Addressing the daily struggles you face---including weariness, irritation, children, finances, overeating, worry, and more---the Copelands show you that by applying the Word of God you can make changes for victory in every area of your life. Includes a Bible reading plan and topical index. 384 pages, softcover from Harrison House.
Although this book has a devotional reading for each day of the month, this book has a topical index which has topics of inspiration, with the days you would find the topics in the devotional. In the beginning of the book there is a prayer of protection from Psalms 91.
The daily devotions in the book are scripture based, interesting and they will lead you to a closer walk with God. I enjoy reading this book because it is faith base and it will build your faith in God.
At the end of the book it gives another index with the months of the year, with every scripture referenced in the book. There is also a prayer for salvation and the baptism of the Holy Spirit which will help an individual to get a closer walk with God.
