    Stowaway by Darcy Flynn is an adventurous, fun and romantic tale set on the high seas. Miranda Merrick is a Charleston, South Carolina shipping heiress that discovers that one of her family’s ships has been under multiple attacks by a saboteur. Her family is facing bankruptcy and her father wants her to marry for financial gain. But, Miranda has another plan, and decides to board the same ship that has come under attack, the Elle Merrick, and get help from her uncle to conduct her own investigation. However, she falls asleep and the ship takes off for Australia. When she awakes, she finds herself as a stowaway aboard the ship. There is a young handsome new captain and a new crew. Miranda hides her identity and takes a job as a cook and a maid, while trying to discover who the saboteur is. Captain Noah Sheppard has agreed to captain the ship to discover who the saboteur is. He also wants to merge his shipping company with the Merrick Company. Miranda and the captain both suspect one another despite their growing attraction for one another. What ensues is a swashbuckling journey filled with danger, suspense and romance. Stowaway by Darcy Flynn is a modern day swashbuckling romance filled with uncertainty and mystery on the high seas. Darcy Flynn is an excellent storyteller which reveals itself in this fun contemporary story set on a cargo ship headed for Australia, and that has been attacked and sabotaged many times. The author’s writing proficiency shines through as the story unfolds. The characters are amazing, real and relatable with flaws and strengths. They are well developed, as is, the exciting unforgettable plot. Miranda has a spunky clever personality and the romance between her and Captain Noah Sheppard is stirring and electrifying. Darcy Flynn knows how to keep readers in suspense, guessing who the identity of the saboteur could be. Her descriptive writing creates an edgy atmosphere of intrigue and mystery.

    Reha Tanör “I’m actually not that fond of food. I’m more than happy with what we have at home,” says Reha Tanör — but immediately adds an important proviso: “But I still very much enjoy dining out!” As a writer, Tanör doesn’t go to restaurants to fill his belly, he goes there to fill his five senses. He doesn’t just write about what he’s eaten, drunk and seen; he also conveys various other things that come to mind. In one moment, he shares his thoughts with a sharp sense of humor; in the next, he brings tears to our eye. In the end, he relays his experiences at well-known restaurants through the medium of delightful stories. Every story’s nuanced observation, depth of culture and unadorned delivery immediately draws the reader in. Ultimately, he presents his gastronomical edge, a product of his expansive journeys around the world, after first grounding it in that great purveyor of wisdom: life experience. Calling Tanör a “gastro-philosopher,” would not be a stretch. In fact, he’s actually an entrepreneur, a corporate executive and an academic. He’s the author of numerous books and articles in law and finance. In terms of lifestyle, though, he’s a true Mediterranean. “If working hard does not bear fruit, then what’s the point of it?” he says and adds “…and the best fruit is to figure out how to live well.” Reha Tanör is married with a son and two grandchildren.
