ONE SCARY MOTHER. As the Conover family
drives from L.A. to Chicago, increasingly strange things begin
to happen. Nine year old Michael sees a face form in the glass
of the car’s window. Fourteen year old Alison sees two creepy
children outside the family’s motel room. Mama has found
the Conovers and is using them as a lesson for her children. There
is nothing like the memory of family road trips no matter what
your destination holds.
On the journey the mind is freed from daily
life and children’s imaginations go wild, except this time
it isn’t their imagination and the parents are seeing it
the magic of summer vacations and sight-seeing with evil games,
torture and death that is sure to haunt the survivors for a lifetime.
Mama can be found under the author name Robin Morris and Robin
Reed, no worries it is the same danger filled adventure. One the
grips you from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the
last word on the last page and even then you may even be craving
for a little more.
The Conover family seems like any typical
family in the economy that we are all facing today. They are up
for a move to their Grandmother’s house for a fresh and hopefully
more luck filled start. The eldest daughter wishes for teenage
freedom as she is ripped away from her friends, her little brother
is a bother to her and fun to pick on. Just your normal balanced
family. Then the weird things start to happen. Is it just their
imagination? A dream? How can a dream touch you and give you deep
chills within your body?

Black history has been shaped by such names
as Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth and Zora Neale Hurston but the real
social changes of the 1960s would not have been possible without
the support of the college students and grassroots activists taking
up the charge. My new book, Bid Whist at Midnight delivers the
coming-of-age story of four young women caught up in the enormity
of the Civil Rights Movement.
Bid Whist at Midnight is a romance
novel grounded in the 1960s social change. In the turbulent 1960s,
Sardis, Grace, Dorcus and Taletha became fast friends attending
college at South Carolina State. But the solace they feel in their
supportive and fun-loving group is rocked when a tragedy strikes
and the life of one of the young women is cut short.
The novel takes readers on a trip through
time, back to the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and forward
in time 20 years when Sardis, Grace and Dorcus reunite and revisit
one of the worse nights of their lives-the night of the Orangeburg
Massacre. What they find is that they are still haunted by guilt,
but their reunion reminds them of the power of their friendship,
allowing them to come to a place of forgiveness, love and a long-awaited
farewell to a friend.
Whist at Midnight is a strong romance novel in its own right,
but it gains its legs in its social commentary looking back at
the 60s and the cultural concerns facing black people at the
time. It is a historical and sociological study of a volatile
period in American history that provides a view and a voice not
