Meet the Author

Bonnie Bernard is an alter ego of a feisty redhead who lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband, a dog, and two cats – one of which owns everybody and everything in the house. They share their old home with a ghost who likes to flip switches and throw power tools until he gets what he wants (bright, shiny objects to play with).
Bonnie spends her time writing, hiking and having fun with her friends. She enjoys planting obscure specimen in the backyard garden to see what pops up, and she’s fascinated by unseen forces and creepy-crawly things.

    There are some books you know will be good simply by the author'

    There are some books you know will be good simply by the author's name. I have read several books by this author and enjoyed every one of them. From the cover art to the last page, this book screams Bonnie Bernard. Her humor, narrative, all of it combines in such a way that sooner or later, you will find yourself grinning if not outright laughing.

    I was already laughing at ten pages into the book. Guy goes to his company Halloween party, visits the tent of the party fortune teller, wakes up the next morning naked in the back of a pickup truck with no memory of what happened or how he got there. Yeah, I'm laughing. Of course, in true Bernard fashion, she immediately throws her signature curveball(s). Yeah, more than one. My head's still spinning. Each consecutive story is as funny as the next one.

    Nature Calls is a collection of stories guaranteed to tickle your funny bone more than a few times. When I reviewed Let's Conquer Paris by Oleg Medvedkov last September, I said "I would be willing to keep a print version of his book in my car for those horrid traffic jams caused by construction or the imp of the perverse." I have to say the same thing about Nature Calls. This book is such a mood lifter and should be in everyone's desk, no matter what their job. Call it stress relief, mood lifter, or just plain awesome.

    I look forward to any book written by Bonnie Bernard. You just can't go wrong. There is something for everyone in this book. While fantasy characters are at the forefront, the situations they find themselves in speak to the everyday person just trying to get through the day. Having Bernard's spin on everything makes this an exceptional read.

    Review 7*******

    This is a fantastic anthology of fourteen short paranormal stories! I loved them!

    Every story in this anthology is entertaining, and some of them have a twist that were either surprising, or left me wanting more!
    It is extremely difficult for me to say which story I enjoyed more, as I loved them all. However, I must admit that When Yeti Met The Space Alien, When Yeti Met The Demon, Transportal Potty and The Ricki Shay Effect may just be on the top of my list. All of the stories are witty, and made me giggle in varying degrees. I especially loved the Yeti meeting Howie Evil in When Yeti Met The Demon. I'm a HUGE Howie Evil fan! However, he'll just call me a "stupid human". If you haven't read Bonnie Bernard's other books, The Midnight Hunter Trilogy, then the reference will be lost on you. Therefore, I HIGHLY recommend you read those books, because then you'll know exactly what I am talking about! Howie Evil HATE'S humans! His meeting with the Yeti had me giggling like mad, because I could "see" the scene in my mind as if it was real.

    Bonnie Bernard is one of my favourite authors, and I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future. I love her sense of humour, which is somewhat macabre, but her wit is dry and highly entertaining! Her writing style is fast paced, and the flow is exceptional; Exceptional, because it takes a 90 degree turn just when you don't expect one! 

    I highly recommend this as a MUST READ, but due to some of the scenes being a bit dark, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. - Lynn Worton

    Nature calls contains 14 short stories hosting fantastic charact

    Nature calls contains 14 short stories hosting fantastic characters like Yeti, an Hell-mutt, Xamwee the space alien, ghosts, monsters and even some mere humans.




    The stories are twisted in more ways than one, I fell in love with it after reading the first! The writer has a keen sense of humor that had me laughing out loud several times. Some stories are build upon previous ones, while others intersect. Each story is very original and amusing, giving a new perspective on some earthly realities.




    “I got lost.” “No, you got found.” 




    “Humans can’t live in Enchantment forever, Jennifer. There is too much air spirit and not enough earth.”




    “They (portals) all look like childhood magic...”




    Nature Calls is a captivating and enchanting (pun intended) read PLUS the first proceeds benefits Wildlife Forever Foundation – what more do you want?!

    Bonnie Bernard
    Nature Calls

    This is a great collection of story stories, with some characters staring in more than one of the stories. Howie Evil (Midnight Hunter Trilogy) makes an appearance, and is his normal charming self, though Yeti takes the leading role. I would love to see more of some of the stories, and this could easily be an intro into something more. Overall, a completely enjoyable humorous read with all kinds of paranormal / fantasy creatures.
