Ballwin, U.S.A. — Cold from the Inside Out may have ended with the first book but there are still more exciting adventures and life-learning lessons awaiting the characters. A rollercoaster of emotions will drive readers as they leaf through the pages of author Violeta Sterner’s The Moonlight Emporium: Further Adventures of the Ravenwood Clan.
In this sequel, the Ravenwoods were getting their family settled. It was a new process for Kate, and there were adjustments for everyone. Some adjustments were easy; some were difficult and complicated, taking extra time and care. It had been five years since Kate found the children stranded in the school bus in a blizzard. Gabe healed nicely after the beating administered by Professor Gilbert. Gilbert spent time in prison after he recovered from his beating by Ravenwood. The New DA charged Ravenwood with attempted murder and Ravenwood broke his jaw when he would not keep his hands off Kate.
They decided to see if they could fix her head. It had been broken since her fall during the blizzard, and Kate said now was the time. Kate and Ravenwood showed up at the office of Dr. Raab early one morning. They took all the tests he suggested as a beginning point for reference. The doctors were fascinated, but not alarmed, by the results.
After everything that happened, Kate learned that she could calm the mares during the birthing process, just as she could calm the family. Readers will find out how Stella, who ran the Moonlight Emporium which was the home of Po’s Potions and a wide variety of products, played her part in the life of this family.
Notes from the author
“I was gainfully employed when I was 16 and remained so until 2010 when I was officially declared disabled. I have a Masters Certificate in Project Management, an AA in Liberal Arts, and a Tax Prep diploma from H&R Block. I am experienced with PCs and PC Packages.
Right now we have Cold from the Inside Out and The Moonlight Emporium. I am currently painfully slow and my brain does not work well. I am still adjusting. It was devastating because it worked so well for the first 50 years.”
