Hayton hails from England and worked as a probation officer in her hometown of Middlesbrough for 12 years before immigrating to the United States in 1991 with her husband Peter. They live in Naples, Florida, willing slaves to four bossy cats.
Hayton never wanted to be a writer, but after listening to her father’s war stories and reading his tattered wartime diaries, she felt compelled to write his WWII memoir A Corporal’s War. Several magazine articles followed.
While researching her father’s memoir, she stumbled upon Ursula Graham Bower’s story and knew instantly that her next book would be about this amazing woman. The book is Naga Queen which is based on 8 years in Ursula Graham Bower’s life during WWII.
To celebrate surviving cancer twice, Hayton traveled to Myanmar in 2006. A travelogue of her journey is available as a Kindle book.
Chasing Brenda and If You Love me, Kill Me are two novellas published 2012 and 2013.
Her latest book is her memoir Still Pedaling.
Denise Holbrook began her writing career as a photojournalist and editor for a weekly newspaper chain in the Lake Okeechobee region of south central Florida, covering everything from rodeos to drug plane crashes. When her family moved to the Fort Myers area, her writing focused mostly on real estate marketing, political campaigns, and technical presentations.
Her editorial columns and character profiles were regular features in the Lehigh Acres Citizen newspaper and Gulf Coast Woman Magazine, running the gamut from political commentary to the ups and downs of raising a family.
More recently, she won the first place award for fiction in the 2012 Gulf Coast Writers Association Writing Contest.
She is a staff editor for Jacobs Writing Consultants, and served as the program chair and vice president of the Gulf Coast Writers Association for 2013 and 2014.
I have always wanted to write. When I was 10 years old, I won first prize in a Patriotism contest at the Children of the American Revolution (CAR). I said to my mother, “I want to be a writer.” My mother said, “Find a profession that will pay some money.” I wrote articles for the school newspaper, the local newspaper and a few magazines, but it wasn’t until I came to Florida eight years ago that I decided it was now my time to write.
I spent a year and a half creating my first cookbook, “In Addition…to the Entrée”. It’s all about the important side dishes which compliments the main dishes. It is a personal guide to help the busy working person as well as anyone to decide what to serve as a side dish for the meal. The book has one hundred and sixty recipes, over two hundred color photos, and is divided into fourteen sections with an extensive index.
Then I started working on my novel, “The Bonnie Neuk Tea Room: Friends and Uninvited Guests (Ghosts)”. Victoria Storm is facing a divorce and wants to do something different with the rest of her life. But what? She receives a cell call from someone who suggests she opens a tea room like her grandmother in her hometown of Metuchen, New Jersey. And who was that who called?
She buys an old house, renovates it into a tea room and has lots of encounters with uninvited guests or are they ghosts?
Please check out www.cookingbyconnie.com and thebonnieneuktearoom.com for more information, ordering, pricing, and photos. The cookbook is $15.00 and the novel is $10.00, plus postage if you want it mailed.

I was a litigation attorney for many years. In recent years, I have mediated lawsuits. Most of the articles I have published were published in law journals. I have written some articles for sports publications, such as the Chicago Track Club. I am currently working on a book on the history of high school athlete eligibility litigation in the state of Indiana. The book is an outgrowth of a law journal article I wrote in July, 2012.
Born in New Orleans in 1937. I practiced pediatrics in academia and in private practice before retiring in 1999.
Tried painting and photography before settling on writing for my retirement day job. My delight and challenge as a writer is for my readers to understand and experience the emotions my characters instill in me. Furthermore, I want readers to predict character behavior in any given circumstance based on how I have portrayed them – but then, maybe not.
I started making up stories to tell whoever would listen, virtually when I started talking. I started writing the stories down when I was nine or ten. Yet, somehow as an adult, for about thirty years, the only writing I did was business and technical writing. I spent those years working for corporations in the High-Tech industry, specializing in implementing company-wide Information Systems. At age fifty, I started writing for pleasure, again — first poetry, then short stories, and finally novels.
My first published novel, The Janus Code, written under the pen name J.C. Ferguson (maiden name), was awarded the FAPA President’s Gold Medal. It is an international thriller about trying to stop a very deadly computer virus. I published my second novel in 2015 — Mangrove Madness, a humorous mystery set in Florida. It is about a newly licensed female PI trying to track down first one, then two…then seven missing people.
Next, I’m working on a follow up novel to Mangrove Madness.
I am currently self-employed — designing websites, educating users on computers, creating covers and formatting printed books and eBooks for self-published authors.
