Book Description:

In Journey's End, we write about death, dying, and end of life issues. We attempt to define and describe these real-life circumstances, and we discuss ways to proactively deal with them. Multiple personal and professional perspectives provide valuable insights.

What is dying like for dying persons, for loved ones, and for those who lend support in the process? Each experience will have unique qualities. Everyone dies in his own way, on his own schedule. While we explore the dying process, we make no assumptions about how any particular death will unfold.

Grief and bereavement support, training tools, and educational resources are included.

Meet the Authors:




Victoria has a master of social work degree. She has worked as a case manager with older adults for the past seventeen years and as a group facilitator. Her past work experience was as a therapist with children and families, and as a case manager for adults with mental health issues. She just launched a consulting business, NorthernMSW to focus on end of life issues, planning, training, and advocacy, along with memoir writing and life legacy writing.

Julie was inspired equally by her professional backgrounds as a biomedical researcher and long time educator. Julie values open and lively discussions based on interview and research findings, trends in health and wellness, and exciting new modalities of treatment and professional education. She believes it will be through such discussions that we will create new and more satisfying cultural paradigms within which we may live all the days of our lives with dignity and quality of care.


If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Julie- Can’t think of a time that could possibly be more interesting than now.
Victoria- I agree with Julie. Now is interesting. I have no interest in traveling back in time.

Hobbies-
Julie- Reading, cooking, long walks, painting, and drawing.
Victoria- Reading, cycling, knitting, long walks in nature, time with my family.

Do you have other professions besides writing?
Victoria is a social worker and case manger with seniors for the past 17 years.

Julie has her own business called Create Write Enterprises where she assists with writing, editing and coaching for personal or business projects- (http://www.createwriteenterprises.com/)

What is your next project?
We are at work on book 2 as we call it currently. This book will also focus on death, dying, and the end of life, but from the perspectives of culture, ethnicity, and religion. We are aiming for a summer 2018 publication. Out of the 28 perspectives we are seeking for this book, we already have 13 committed individuals. It will cover the major religions of the world along with various ethnic and cultural perspectives.

Do you snack while writing?
Julie– Always! Meals, snacks, coffee, tea, chocolate, I write in my sleep, in the shower, while walking, and driving  😊

Victoria- Usually, coffee, tea, cookies, crackers, fruit, meals, wine, water, chocolate. I think of ideas while walking, when sitting quietly, and sometimes while driving!

Three is a War Book By Pam Godwin

The conclusion of the Tangled Lies series is now available!

Three is a War (Book 3)

Three means war. Three sides vying for forever.
Cole. My first love. The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.
Trace. My second chance. Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.
Me. The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight. I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering. What options do I have left?
I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

I rated this book 5 *****'s 
Danni made the right choice

I loved how the series ended for me. I am so happy that Danni made the right choice for me. From the beginning, I thought she should picked him and she did.

What a series Tangled Lies is. The story is a mess but it is beautiful. It is complicated but so worth it the end. I never a fan of threesome but this turned out so intriguing for me. I liked it.

It is like a game of tag of war where Danni is in the middle. This girl is so turned at the beginning and finally followed her heart. Three is always a crowd.

Bravo to Ms. Pam Godwin. If you love to read a book with full of emotions, twist and sexiness, Tangle Lies is a perfect series and prepare a box of Kleenex and a fan to cool you down.


One is a Promise (Book 1)


One promise. One forever.
One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness. When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me. A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.
Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.
Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t. At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves. He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.
Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.
Promises resurface. Lies entangle. And an impossible choice shatters my world.
I love two men, and I can only have one.



Two is a Lie (Book 2)

Two lies. Two men who don’t share.
I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury. His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.
Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever. And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.
The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them. Fighting and fucking. Resisting and submitting.
Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.
I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.

Why should readers read your book, what makes yours different?
There are many great books out there. I love so many of them myself. I have a deep respect for the Authors. We should celebrate one another in our art because it’s not easy to write a book.
My book is different because I put it all in there. Like the analogy of leaving it all on the stage.  I shared my experiences and some of others who wanted a voice, through poetic form. This book will be there, it will say what was wanted to say or what you may be feeling right now. I wanted to be real, share life in its layers.

What advice would you give budding writers?
If there is no opportunity or no door is opening. Create your own. Do it the way you want to. You’ll never regret a journey that you lead.

Do you have any other passion besides writing?
I am passionate about singing/songwriting and film production/directing. I used to sing in school and church, taken TV Production and Broadcast Journalism courses along the years. I just love art and media.
Not giving up on any of them, I plan to write and direct a web series. Apart of the publishing/writing/marketing company, I’m planning to do, incorporates books and music marketing. So, there’s more to me than just writing books.

The last book that you’ve read?
The Summer of Me by, Angela Benson. She’s also the Best-Selling Author of Deliah’s Daughters. The Summer of Me is a great book. I was interested in it from the title alone. Sometimes we need to just focus on ourselves. This character was fun, witty, and well detailed. I related in some ways.

What book are you currently reading?
I Can’t Make This Up, by Kevin Hart. I mean come on, who doesn’t love Kevin? Laughter is good for the soul. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. He’s very real in his persona and the things he’s overcome to get where his is, it’s remarkable. He never tries to cover any of it up either. You get him. His efforts have shown hard work over the years going from just stand-up comedy, to the big screen.

Favorite Travel Spot?
This might be corny, but I haven’t visited it yet, Barcelona, Spain. I know you’re like, how can I say it’s a favorite? Because I know I’m going to love it. I’ve seen countless descriptions of the its beauty. I see a country with a very high culture in art. A cuisine that exudes in flavor. I can’t wait. It’s like my Eat, Pray, Love destination. I’ll take the basic Spanish that I still remember with me and enjoy the country. It’s on the bucket list.

Any Hobbies?

I love to cook. Just as much as I love eating. So, win, win. I try to find new and creative ways to do little recipes or add a spin to a classic. I like 30-minute meals. What mom doesn’t?  It comes out good most of the time. My sons love it, or maybe they just love anything. Lasagna, Mac & Cheese and Fried Chicken, anytime we have a function, I’m asked if I feel like cooking it.
