Author Spotlight on Judith Rocchiccioli

 Judith's Books on Facebook Book OneIt’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans and thousands of tourists have flocked to the city, paralyzing traffic and jamming the French Quarter with drunken crowds and garbage. City officials are hoping for record crowds and the greatest economic boost since Katrina. Alexandra Destephano, a nurse and legal counsel for the prestigious Crescent City Medical Center, is happily anticipating her third Carnival Season.  Alex is eagerly awaiting her date with dashing art historian Mitch Landry to the Endymion Extravaganza, the biggest Mardi Gras Ball in New Orleans on Saturday evening.  But things change when Alex is stat-paged to the medical center to learn from her former surgeon husband Robert Bonnet that Grace Raccine, a patient and the first lady of Louisiana, has been found unconscious in her bed covered with blood.
  Book TwoIt is hotter than hell in New Orleans, and newly promoted NOPD Commander Jack Francoise is battling a horrific crime spree in the Vieux Carre in the August heat.  At Crescent City Medical Center’s Psychiatric Pavilion, nursing staff are constantly doling out Thorazine Slurpees and Geodon shots to some of the most criminally insane and viciously psychotic patients in the South.    Alexandra Destephano, a registered nurse and legal counsel for CCMC is concerned about inadequate staff and safety issues in The Pavilion and enlists former husband, dashing surgeon Robert Bonnet, to assist her to battle Lester Whitset, the odd and often bizarre Pavilion administrator. In the meantime, staff and patients are being brutally beaten and killed, and Alex must set aside her feelings about the chronic understaffing at CCMC and work with Jack, Robert, and others to bring the perpetrators to justice.  
 Book ThreeIt’s a beautiful October day in the Crescent City, probably the most beautiful day of the year. Alexandra Destephano and Commander Jack Francoise are savoring the silence before Operation Fix America, a political summit that will bring the most powerful leaders in America to New Orleans. The calm is shattered when they learn of a lethal viral outbreak in the Crescent City  Emergency Department where the unidentified virus has already claimed the lives of a political attachė and food service worker.  When another tragic murder in the Vieux Carre claims the life of a young politician, the protėgė of Alex’s powerful  grandfather, Congressman Adam  Patrick Lee of Virginia, Jack becomes suspicious of numerous threats to the Crescent City.  With the arrival of POTUS in less than 48 hours, Jack must learn to play well with the FBI and the Secret Service while Alex coordinates with medical leaders from the CDC, Tulane, LSU, and the University of Virginia to control the raging virus.

About BeautysPunishment

Once a wild brat that couldn’t be tamed, I have been in a 24/7 DD, D/s relationship since July 14, 2011. We had a collaring ceremony lead by Mistress Joanne and attended by friends. I’m only submissive to Jolynn. Every day I run our business, and anything else so Jolynn can write her books in peace and quiet when she has time. I am the housewife, secretary, publicist, pet parent, and doer of good deeds, squirrel, and fueled by caffeine. Redbull gives me wings to fly through the internets. It is my drink of choice, and it's what's for breakfast. I tend to put my foot in mouth, and will say things without thinking; so if I offend anyone, it's not intentional. I am blunt and to the point, and don't have an inner monologue. According to Jolynn, I don’t have an off button. She keeps trying to find it on the top of my head. I have an off the wall sense of humor; more often than not I am impulsive, a little loud, and sometimes obnoxious. But that's just me.
