About the Author

Unemployed – Oh yes, just at the beginning of what they quaintly call the Great Recession. What to do? I cleaned out all my closets, categorized my recipes, actually cleaned under things, and yet I was still banging around my little abode like a house fly trying to escape through the screen. Then a dear friend suggested I read the works of E.F. Benson, a British writer from the 1930’s and 40’s. I was just in the mood for his amusing tales of a group of society women in a small English village. Oh the shenanigans. There was more intrigue and manipulation amongst these ladies than within the Balkan countries before World War I. I was totally hooked. I read all of his Queen Lucia books and slowly realized how the social scene of my own little town of Santa Fe, New Mexico resembled the society in this small English village. Then lightning struck. And out of this electrical incident came Divas Never Flinch my first satirical novel. Now I had written before – but not fiction. I’d written stage and screen plays – all unsuccessfully, except for a performance of one of my plays at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. So Divas was my first venture into fiction. Many short stories (collected in Gotta Dance with the One Who Brung Ya), and other novels followed. And I find that I am most content writing fiction. And to my surprise I seem to have a penchant for dry humor. Who woudda thunk it? In any case I hope you enjoy my stumbling efforts. Jon McDonald lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He currently has six published works of fiction. He won first prize and was published in the Santa Fe New Mexican holiday short story contest, 2009 and is published in numerous publications.

I guess I don't understand the attraction of reading about folks with unlimited means and a snooty attitude. Some humorous moments, but for the most part just a bunch of old catty ladies competing with each other for social standing.

I received an EBook that I was able to read on my kindle application on my laptop (this is how I do most of the reading nowadays).

Now before I started reading DIVA'S NEVER FLINCH, I wanted to have a peek at Jon Mcdonald's website and get to know him. From his About Me Section, I found that Jon lives in Santa Fe. It states: 'on and off for 24 years, after 15 years in California and before that NYC and London.

Diva's Never Flinch is a comedy-romance-chick lit .It did take off slow for me in the beginning but it picked up within the fourth and fifth chapter. It reminds me of the Television show, Gossip Girl. Where you have 2 upper class ladies/girls using their words (and sometimes more), while trying to battle their way to be at the top, and stay there. I wanted to describe it this way because I, myself watched this show and that is how I related to the book. By looking at the cover of the book it displays a female of the younger generation, even though the characters Sonora and Connye are of the older generation in the book (50's).

There were so many touching moments in the book. I don't want to spoil it all for you. I am a firm believer in never judging a book by its cover. But I must say this, (as this is my only teaser for you readers) Jon brings such detail in the events, places, and people he describes in DIVA'S NEVER FLINCH. Like Lionel's condo for instance. I see his vision of how it looks. To the ceremony that happens in the Sonora's backyard.

I would have loved to have met these ladies in person because every writers dream is to make their book, their dream come to life.

I would love to find out how you indeed like the book, in your own thoughts.

You can find Jon through his website [...] , and on Goodreads , [...
