N. N. Light

N. N. Light is the best-selling husband-wife writing team, commonly known as Mr. N and Mrs. N. Mrs. N. has been creating stories ever since she was little. Her grandfather remembers when she was two years old, she would stand at the top of the stairs and tell him a story filled with emotion (and in a language foreign to him) with her hands on her hips. Let’s just say she was a born storyteller.

They’re blissfully happy and love all things chocolate, books, music, movies, art, sports, trains, history, cooking and baking. Their mantra is to spread the Light.

                           Amazon Best-Seller and Hot New Release

I had been searching for love my whole life. It took the opening up of the world via technology for me to find my soulmate. Once I laid eyes on her, at the arrivals gate, I knew I was never going to let her go. The following is a collection of poems I wrote to my angel, from our first meeting up until our wedding day. I was working crazy hours as a chef and I had a long commute. I chose my commuting time to pen her a poem each day. These poems speak of our life, our challenges and our growth together…in every aspect they speak of our love.

May this book give someone the courage to let their special someone know how much they care for them and how much they mean to them. Saying I love you is a gift you can give many times a day.

    Latest Review for Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year --

"I enjoyed this book of heartfelt, honest poetry. It's an excellent snapshot of a year in the life of a couple that's truly in love with one another on their way to holy matrimony, and was a very fast read, to boot. Five stars, highly recommended." - Barb Caffrey (Amazon)

       Latest Review for Planting the Seeds of Love: A Novella --

"Very cute, feel good contemporary romance novella.

Twenty two year old business student Sally Rayton reluctantly returns to the family farm for her grandfather's funeral with Trevor her city boyfriend.

Although her grandfather wanted her to keep the farm in the family, Sally has other ideas and plan's to: settle her grandfather's estate, bid her childhood friend Jack goodbye and return to her life in the city.

But Jack has always loved Sally and has other ideas for the future.

Sally is unsure... so grandfather's ghost decides to pay her a visit and help her decide.

Torn between two men and two ways of life, Sally must decide where her heart and future lies- city or countryside.

A very sweet, warm and gentle read.

Short and clean- scenes with some light fighting and swearing but no sex or extreme language.

Sally came across as a bit of a spoilt little princess, with Jack as her clear Prince Charming.

I really didn't like the character Trevor- so possessive and arrogant.

Great descriptive narrative, vivid dialogue that not only breathed life into the characters but provided a window into life in a tight knit countryside community.

The countryside community was portrayed so positively, it even lured this committed city girl into sampling a taste of country life with a farm visit next holiday." - Ariel C (Goodreads)

                        Latest Review of Princess of the Light --

"Surprisingly, spiritually uplifting…

Granted I am not a usual reader of this type of book. But if anything has the word paranormal attached to it, I obsessively give it the once over. And in this case, I’m glad I did. I was attracted to the cover of this book when it first popped up in my “People who brought this book also brought this” list. I was actually on the lookout for something new and different to read, so I took a chance and ordered a copy. Admittedly, it took a little bit to get into it, as I am not a big romance reader, but when the action starts, and it doesn’t take too long for that to happen, hold on to your hat, or in this case, your Halo!

Good versus evil, fallen angels, vengeful demons and devils causing mayhem and death here on earth and then fighting humans transformed into angelic warriors, Mary, AKA, the Princess of the Light and her love interest, Joe. Plus, the, or rather THE Angel Gabriel is also a central character in the story. He acts as both mentor and spiritual guide to the couple who are chosen to battle Satan’s dark forces through the power of prayer and sword and sorcery type weapons. There are also plenty of twists and turns in the story to keep you guessing, including an unlikely alliance that only adds more intrigue leading up to the final sword swinging, axe wielding, purple flame, demon burning battle. And I’m not going to reveal the surprise ending, but it adds a nice touch.

There are some minor flaws in the continuity here and there, but nothing that interferes with the narrative. Overall, I felt very good after reading The Princess of the Light. Sort of the same feeling one gets from watching a Hallmark Channel Movie. Besides being a Paranormal Romance, I would also consider it to be a fine example of modern Christian literature as well. Out of curiosity, I visited the Author’s website to find out more about them and was pleased to learn that they donate a portion of all their sales to their local food bank through an endowment. Yet another good reason to feel good about this book.

Enjoy!" - Bernie O'Connor (Goodreads)
