The savvy, sexy and often irreverent novels of Bobbi Kornblit
March 21, 2018
Want to laugh? Want to cry? Bobbi Kornblit takes you into the glamour of Hollywood and down an emotional roller coaster to the day a President died.
Bobbi Kornblit is a spitfire.
And I say that with absolute admiration for the woman and her literary works.
I was recently privileged to hear her speak at the Silver Leos Writers Conference at Texas A&M Commerce.
When Bobbi takes the microphone, she’s in charge.
She is exactly like her novels:
And usually irreverent.
Bobbi is a naturals storyteller.
Bobbi is a spellbinder.
As she said, authors are often told to write what they know.
A lot of us don’t know a lot.
Then she went one step further, and it made all the difference in the world. Write what your imagination knows.
Bobbi’s imagination knows no bounds.
If you only read two books this year, these are the ones to wrap your imagination around.
Red Carpet Rivals

Through laughter and tears, SHELTER FROM THE TEXAS HEAT tells the story of a woman’s emotional journey on a road that could tragically lead to a dead end or to the highway of happiness.
It has been compared in reviews to The Help and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
SHELTER FROM THE TEXAS HEAT is a novel about holding onto secrets and the power of friendship to help release them. The tales of three generations of women are blended together like a tangy hot, subtly sweet barbecue sauce.
Rachel Frank, a redheaded Texan, has it all: a successful architect husband, Michael; a house on one of the most prestigious streets in Dallas; and a daughter, Missy — a coed at UT Austin.
And then Rachel’s world turns upside down. Throughout her growth from girlhood in the ’60s to adulthood, she shares her adventures with sidekick and best friend P.J. Rutherford, the daughter of a Texas tycoon.
They experience the horror of John F. Kennedy’s assassination when they hear the news on the playground in Dallas. Rachel’s mother, Rosy Rosenshein Miller, tries to overcome the nightmare of her own past. She’s one of those great “broads” with loads of spunk and a little too much red lipstick.
From funny, turned disastrous moments at a glamorous birthday party at Neiman Marcus, to the painful memories of a Holocaust survivor, SHELTER FROM THE TEXAS HEAT takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride that even includes a stop at the State Fair of Texas.
The award-winning First Chapter appeared in “Lessons Learned: Vol. 1” anthology. First Place Woodlands Writers’ Guild Texas Cliffhanger Award for “Night Flight” Chapter.
SHELTER FROM THE TEXAS HEAT is generating discussion, with its unique perspective from a child experiencing the tragic event and the effects on her family — and on the nation. Endorsed by the American Library Association’s Booklist Online as one of the 50 best books about JFK (out of 40,000 works of fiction).
Above all, it is a story about friendship and love.
