BWW Features: Music Theatre of Connecticut - Thinking Outside the Black Box
by Melinda Zupaniotis - Sep 26, 2014

Back in 2008, when I moved from my small New York City apartment to my 3 bedroom house on a half-acre in Norwalk, CT, I was both 'excited AND scared', to quote Little Red from Into the Woods. I was excited for the change, for the possibilities, and for the extra space, yet scared for the unknown, the new responsibilities, and the financial undertaking. I'm sure 'excited AND scared' sums up the feelings held by Kevin Connors and Jim Schilling when faced with their latest venture - moving Music Theatre of Connecticut from its quaint and cozy home in the basement of a Westport strip mall to the spacious and state-of-the-art surroundings at the Company's new location at 509 Westport Avenue in Norwalk, CT. However, 'excited' might be the dominant emotion. (more...)

Book Two in A RIVERVIEW MYSTERY SERIES is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 25, 2014

Bethany and Roger Meadows plan for a bright future, a guest camp and pack station that will cater to horse owners and adventure campers. The campgrounds, cabins, stables, and pavilion are ready, but there are no trails for the guests to explore. Bethany and Megan venture Into the Woods to mark a trail, but a frightening accident brings her face to skull with a mummified corpse. She sends Megan and Kam out to guide FBI Forensic specialist David Harrison to the location of the body. After Megan leaves, an unknown shooter attempts to keep the murder a mystery. Agent David Harrison finds when the bullets start flying Kam leads him to an abandoned cabin where they wait out the storm and the shooter. He discovers he wants to explore their shared heritage, in private. With the evidence they uncovered in the cabin and the corpse itself, the mystery unfolds and the connections to current day become clearer. Crimes of the distant past link to crimes of the closer past and even to crimes of the present; blackmail, extortion, arson, and murder attempts link the body and some of the current residents of Riverview. David and Kam work with Megan and Aaron to uncover connections and reveal what occurred so long ago and how it might affect people in the town today. David and Kam grow closer with each new danger, coming to appreciate the similarities in their pasts and the differences that draw them to each other. Once all the mysteries are solved, can they find a way to become a lasting couple, or will her past interfere with their future? This book, like the first Riverview mystery, Desperate Endurance (ISBN: 978-1493754939), shows the values and cohesiveness of small town and rural America. People are willing to help each other and sacrifice as needed to keep each other safe in a very rugged and unforgiving land. 'Skeleton Trail' is available in both print and ebook format. Book Details: Skeleton Trail By Kasey Riley Publisher: Webb Lane Enterprises Published: August 2014 ISBN: 978-1500863265 ASIN: B00MTUQLH0 Pages: 299 Genre: Mystery/Suspense About The Author: Kasey (Kim) Riley is an equestrienne with over twenty years of horse ownership, endurance riding, and rural living. Her writing reflects all of these values and experiences. Her characters are down to earth people and the situations are mostly plausible in modern day America. Her goals are to entertain her readers while exposing them to her sport as well as the possibilities of life. Her riding gives her ideas every time she mounts up and heads Into the Woods or out on the open trails of Oklahoma. Her competitive spirit has been dampened in the past year by her writing goals. She has mostly retired from her favorite Endurance Rides down to occasional Limited Distance and frequent trail rides with friends. Her Missouri Foxtrotting Horse is happily getting fat in the pasture while his rider sits at her computer, but that is bound to change with the coming cooler season. She plans to continue with more books based in Riverview, CO. Some will be mysteries, maybe a romance or two, some may even use endurance again as a background for the suspense. All will feature believable characters who live normal lives and experience unusual situations. While her goal is to find an agent and publishing house, she will continue to self-publish until she finds the best person to represent her and her style of writing. Her first two novels, 'Desperate Endurance' and 'Skeleton Trail' are being well received and the reader reviews have been great.
