J.L. Salter!

My published novels (with Astraea Press) are: "Called to Arms Again" (May 2013), "Rescued By That New Guy in Town" (Oct. 2012), and "The Overnighter's Secrets" (May 2012). Romantic comedy and romantic suspense are among seven completed novel manuscripts.
I've also published -- as a short companion piece to "Called to Arms Again" -- the story, "Echo Taps" ... released in June 2013.
I'm co-author of two non-fiction monographs (about librarianship) with a royalty publisher, plus a signed chapter in another book and a signed article in a specialty encyclopedia. I've also published articles, book reviews, and over 120 poems; my writing has won nearly 40 awards, including several in national contests. As a newspaper photo-journalist, I published about 150 bylined newspaper articles, and some 100 bylined photos.
I worked nearly 30 years in the field of librarianship. I'm a decorated veteran of U.S. Air Force (including a remote tour of duty in the Arctic, at Thule AB in N.W. Greenland).
I'm the married parent of two and grandparent of six.
Here is my Facebook Author Page link:
A stubborn boyfriend with the sniffles is the last thing Amanda needs in her apartment during THIS work crisis, but how can she get clueless Jason to leave without just ending their relationship?

Fortunately, her divorced girlfriend hurriedly develops the devious scare-cure. Amanda throws everything at Jason that Christine can dream up and that apartment becomes the least hospitable place a man could possibly imagine. Extensive potpourri and a glued-down toilet seat are just the beginning.

But how serious are the privacy risks as Christine blogs about her scare-cure? Can this crazy scheme really get Jason out of Amanda’s hair at home before she loses her mind at work?

Will Amanda’s relationship even survive the kooky cure of Jason’s man-cold?

  2. Hi Jeff,

    Fascinating bio - especially the tour of duty in the Artic. I have a copy of your book but haven't had time to read it yet. Looking forward to it. :)

    1. Thanks, Karen, for visiting and commenting.
      Yes that year inside the Arctic Circle was very interesting. Got a lot of writing done, but I wasn't working in novels at that point.
      Once you do get a chance to read Man-Cold, I hope you'll enjoy it.

  3. Thanks, Kelly, for featuring me and my novel today.
    I appreciate all the promo I can get!

  4. Haven't gotten to this one, Jeff, but will.I have liked all your works, but found your novels progressively more enjoyable!

    1. thank you, Tonette, for all your kind words, encouragement, and support.

  5. Being new to the Astraea team, I love learning about my fellow authors. I enjoyed your bio and look forward to reading your books.

    1. Thanks, Lucie. Hope to see you profiled soon too.

  6. Hi Jeff. Every time I visit a blog where you're appearing, I learn something new. This time it was about your tour of duty at Thule. Brrrr, cold!

    1. Gosh, I thought you already knew about my remote Arctic Tour.
      Funny thing: even though it was quite cold (of course) and we had nearly 3 months of "midnight sun" and nearly 3 months of "Arctic Night" (no sun at all)... it was not as cold as certain winters in some of the northernmost American states. But, Thule was basically on a glacier bed and there are no trees up there, so nothing at all to break the wind.

  7. I finished your book, and I'm sad that I can't write a review. I laughed aloud several times, and scratched my head at the hero's utter helplessness!

    1. Thanks, Patty, for reading Man-Cold.
      Very glad it made you laugh!

  8. I've started your book Jeff, but I'm so busy at the momentI can't believe how often I had to put it aside already ... but it's given me a couple of good laughs already ... but why doesnt that surprise me ;-)
