- More praise for Never Retreat–RomCon says “A modern love story with elements of suspense and surprise as a flood puts Raye and Des in survival mode. . . .Clashing characters early on turns into a nice dose of chemistry between the pair. Strong well-written characters with a fleshed out background for each of them makes this an enjoyable read. An imaginative storyline that hasn’t been overdone.”

A Message from Bonnie
Superhuman achievements, extravagant wealth and grandiloquent language, political power or notoriety, or the external signs of success aren’t impressive. Instead, the wonder in the world around me, the respect I feel when an individual meets trouble with dignity and hard work, my amazement to learn of a small triumph in an everyday life motivate me.
My response isn’t unique. From a piece as banal yet charming as Flower Drum Song (“A Hundred Million Miracles”) to soul-stirring poems by Ranier Maria Rilke (“Duino Elgies”), we’re reminded how fleeting our existence and how valued our senses, experiences and thoughts should be.
So my writing and my blog explore these details with humor or praise, distaste or
disapproval, awe or loathing, both the highs and lows of incidents I run across, based on my own opinions. You’re welcome to comment, read, or respond if you’re so inclined.
