Book Spotlight: Madison Johns Author of Armed and Outrageous

Duration: 30 minutes


Agnes Barton is not your typical senior. She drives a red, hot Mustang, shops at Victoria’s Secret, and has a knack for sticking her nose where it does not belong.

When tourist Jennifer Martin disappears, Agnes makes it her personal mission to find the woman herself, enlisting the aid of her best friend, and partner in crime, Eleanor Mason. The pair does not waste any time and drive to the crime scene. It did not surprise Agnes that the Sheriff’s Department is not taking the woman’s disappearance seriously; they had a long history of non-action that started the year before when Agnes’ granddaughter disappeared. Sheriff Peterson is not happy she is meddling again, but Agnes could care less what he thought, she is on the case.

Amateur sleuths Agnes and Eleanor are an odd pair, while Agnes considers herself as conservative, Eleanor makes it impossible with her antics. They are not letting the fact that they are seniors get in the way either. Before long, the pair has more on their hands to contend with as bullets begin to fly.

Podcast: The Wise Bear Book Club Discusses The Help

Book Spotlight: Invisible Snow by Quinn Barrett

Quinn isn’t just the author of highly praised Invisible Snow, she’s also the founder of Wise Bear Media and Wise Bear Books. A reader and fan of Quinn’s debut novel turns the table on her to ask questions about the process of writing Invisible Snow, the digital publishing landscape and the mission of the Wise Bear Books podcast.


Kate Snow married the wrong man for the wrong reasons. Paul Delacroix was smitten with Kate the first time he laid eyes on her and was willing to do anything to have her. She was raised in a large, impoverished family near the slopes of Sun Valley, Idaho. He was the sole heir to his family’s Los Angeles-based multi-billion dollar corporation. It should have been a fairy tale romance, but it wasn’t.

Kate’s marriage unravels when she discovers a mysterious safe room which harbors her husband’s darkest secrets. The legacy of the family business is at stake, but power is not always about money. Their showdown results in a shocking twist of fate—a destiny Kate never saw coming.

Invisible Snow is a classic family drama about wealth, power, greed, and redemption. Marriage is a delicate dance of power between lovers, but Kate and Paul Delacroix are strangers caught in a disparate union somewhere between betrayal and truth. Confronting their true selves for the first time results in an epic clash of wills where only one will prevail.


Quinn Barrett is a native of Southern California, currently residing in the West Los Angeles area. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in English, she worked as a corporate business development strategist specializing in emerging growth technology, software and Internet companies.

…Putting the book down was impossible. The story was so gripping, and the attachment one has for the lead character was so great, stopping my reading felt like torture. The author has a great mind, and the storyline is incredibly rich, with a profusion of diverse characters; all of this escalating towards a truly terrific ending…
