    Conversation with the beautiful Pop Singer, Songwriter, and Musician Shanaya Patel

    Conversation with the beautiful Pop Singer, Songwriter, and Musician Shanaya Patel

    Keepin It Real w/Caramel had a great conversation with Pop Singer, Songwriter, and Musician Shanaya Patel. She is so amazing and very talented. We spoke about her journey in the music industry and so much more. Shanaya is very humble and so excited about her journey. Canadian pop singer, songwriter, and musician Shanaya Patel brings honesty and originality to her music that has the music industry paying attention. The confident, heartfelt voice combined with her passion at the piano brings lyrics to life. From a very young age, Patel knew what she wanted, and it was more than evident that she had the talent to go with the dream. Taking her cue from a world inspired by Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, and JP Saxe, Patel worked hard to perfect her craft and to make her music her own. The singer/ songwriter’s YouTube cover of Julia Michaels “Issues” earned 4.1 million votes for her MTV ‘Cover of The Month’ nomination. In 2022, ready to step into the light, Patel signed with daCosta Talent, garnering her a spot in the changing entertainment industry, from music to voiceover and on-camera acting. It’s safe to say Shanaya Patel is placed to soar.
    Following the success of Patel’s two singles, “Not Bitter” and “Good Company,” expectations are high for the rising artist. With her growing popularity, Patel took the stage at many events, including appearances at iconic music venues The Danforth Music Hall and The Opera House in Toronto to rave reviews. In 2023, Patel released a small part of an original song on Instagram, earning a remarkable 1.4 million views. Patel followed with the full release of her single “August Twenty-Second.” The rest is history. The pop sensation has proven she is on her way with grace and maturity far beyond her age. One thing for sure is Shanaya Patel’s voice is a gift to her and to anyone who listens. Shanaya Patel is in the studio working on new music to be released soon.

    It has been 2 years, and another great conversation with the Bestselling Author - JP McLean

    It has been 2 years, and another great conversation with the Bestselling Author - JP McLean

    It has been 2 years since I spoke with JP McLean. She was very excited to speak with me, and I felt the same way..so the feelings were mutual. When Keepin It Real w/Caramel spoke JP McLean, it was a pleasure speaking with JP. We had a ball catching up. She is full of life, and by way, the conversation was very fun. JP (Jo-Anne) McLean is a bestselling author of urban fantasy and supernatural thrillers. She is a Global Book Award winner, a CIBA finalist, and has received honours from the Eric Hoffer Book Awards, the Wishing Shelf Book Awards, the Whistler Independent Book Awards, and the Victoria Writers’ Society.
    Raised in Toronto, Ontario, JP has lived in various parts of North America, from Mexico and Arizona to Alberta and Ontario. JP holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business, is a certified scuba diver, an avid gardener, and a voracious reader. She had a successful career inhuman resources before turning her attention to writing. JP lives with her husband on Denman Island, which is nestled between the coast of British Columbia and Vancouver Island. JP love of reading started early. She has memories of sitting in her father's lap with a picture book from the library and dragging her finger along the page under words that her Dad would help her sound out. Her love of writing started somewhat later but ignited when she began writing what she loved: supernatural thrillers. Some call it urban fantasy, paranormal, or magical realism. The definitions overlap somewhat, but the thing they have in common is a fantastical element that forces you to suspend reality and ask the question, What if that were possible? JP stays true to herself, and she writes what she feels and she loves when the reviewers love what they read. Her reviewers call her books addictive, smart, and fun. I knew JP is someone special, she keeps elevating and I can't wait until one day she writes her movie, to me it going to sell very well, plus I want to be in it, that's if she let me, we will see. You can reach her through her website at jpmcleanauthor.com or through her social media sites. You can request additional review copies or an interview with JP McLean.

    Another great conversation with Author Kalee Boisvert - The Guru of Finance - Financial Advisor

    Every time I have a conversation with Kalee Boisvert, we always have an interesting conversation. Keepin It Real w/Caramel had to catch up with Kalee to see what she had going on. Kalee and I had a very interesting conversation about finances, and it is always good to know how to manage our finances. Kalee Boisvert has been in the financial industry for over 15 years, but her love of money started very young. Growing up in a single parent household, she watched her mom struggle with finances and wished there was something she could do to help. Around this time, she realized she needed to find her own way to save and earn if she wasn’t going to allow her circumstances to define her. And so, her own journey to financial literacy began. Today, as a single mom and financially independent woman, Kalee is called to support women in their financial lives. She felt the pull toward a career that would allow her to pursue this deeply personal goal to advocate for women & their money, which led her on the path to becoming a financial advisor. Being an advisor allows her to work directly with women to empower and support them and help put an end to any money-related stress and doubts.
    To further her efforts supporting financial literacy, Kalee has two books being released in 2023 – a children’s picture book called MoneyWise Mabel’s Bursting Bank - and a non-fiction book called Make Money Your Thing! Which aims to build confidence and empower people in their financial lives.
    MoneyWise Mabel’s Bursting Bank is a guide for kids - YESSS for kids!
    Expert Financial Advisor Kalee Boisvert shares all with a new fun guide for Kids to learn and begin their money management skills. What should Mabel do now that her piggybank is full to the brim?
    Follow Kalee steps as she takes the first step to teach your school-aged kids fundamentals about money management with this approachable, fun, and charming debut full of colorful illustrations and easy-to-understand concepts.
    NOW AN AMAZON #1 HOT NEW RELEASE! Making Money Your Thing Is Easier Than You Think . .
    With inspiration from her own life, Kalee Boisvert has developed an easy-to-use system for women, young and old, to take control of their finances. Make Money Your Thing is an approachable guide to take women on a journey from avoidance and overwhelm to feeling comfortable and in control of their finances. This book provides simple action steps to learn the basics of money management, understand the importance of balancing the books, and embrace the uniqueness of your own personal situation. The end result is women feeling good about where their finances are right now and building a solid foundation for where you want to go in the future. When money is your “thing” you can feel completely at ease about making it work for you–and feel confident that your financial goals and dreams are all very possible. Kalee gives you clear, simple steps and easy-to-follow instructions to make money your thing in no time!
    These are some of the concepts we talked about, and you will explore in the book. (1) Transforming money mistakes into money wisdom. (2) Keep the focus on what you can control. (3) Step into your power: become a money boss. (4) Go on a date with your money. (5) Embrace your money uniqueness. Kalee Boisvert loves when she can provide the tools for people, but it's up to you to apply and make a change for yourself.

    Convo with K.T. Anglehart - Award-Winning Author is changing the way historical fiction is scribed!

    Convo with K.T. Anglehart - Award-Winning Author is changing the way historical fiction is scribed!

    K.T. Anglehart and I conversation on Keepin It Real w/ Caramel was refreshing. I love speaking with entrepreneurs who can be themselves, and that is just what K.T. did.. She was herself. We could've talked for hours. I know we both enjoyed the conversation. Katrina Tortorici Anglehart is known as K.T. Anglehart is an award-winning author from Montreal, with a multilingual prowess in English, French, Italian, and “Spanglish”. A dedicated academic, she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, a graduate certificate in Scriptwriting, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. Inspired by the wizarding world, the land of Narnia, and parallel planes, she penned The Wise One, inviting readers to connect with nature and its ever-present magic. Her exploration of the landscapes and folklore of Ireland and Scotland greatly influenced her debut YA urban fantasy, marking the inception of the Scottish Scrolls series. K.T. Anglehart is a passionate advocate for bunnies, thanks to her late Netherland Dwarf, Magic—the inspiration behind her imprint,
    The Magic Dwarf Press. When she’s not writing or diving into magical reads, she revels in hiking and antiquing, and Netflix binges alongside her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, Andy. They currently live in Toronto with their three pets: Nessie, a mysterious rescue dog from Puerto Rico, and their whimsical bunnies, Onyx and Stirling. K.T loves when the worlds collide for both teen and adult readers, who will love the fast-paced thrills and interplay of witchy fantasy, Celtic folklore, and reality in The Wise One—book one of The Scottish Scrolls series. A SYNOPSIS OF "THE WISE ONE" -Mckenna's never thought much of her nightmares, but on her seventeenth birthday, a vivid dream of burning at the stake awakens her dormant abilities, thrusting her into a world where faeries are real, spirits hold a grudge, and a High Priestess obsessed with a 16th-century prophecy is tracking
    her every move. Now, her overprotective dads, Seán and Andre, are forced to tell her the truth—they know who her birth mother is, and her life is not the surrogate story she's always been told Abigail,
    Mckenna's mom is some sort of mystic, and Mckenna a Wise One.Whatever the hell that means. With the help of a persistent little wren and company of a newfound friend, Mckenna journeys to Ireland in search of her mother and real answers. Along the way, she learns to harness her innate magic and trust her intuition, as best she can anyway—Cillian, a kind and passionate delegate who crosses her path, is proving much harder to read. Only her mother could truly help her halt her ill fate and prepare her for what's to come . . . before she gives into the darkness she knows is buried deep within. Amazon.com: The Wise One (The Scottish Scrolls Book 1) eBook : Anglehart, K.T.: Kindle Store
    K.T. Anglehart expertly weaves a story set in Ireland that is both timeless and unique, a perfect cross-market read for those searching for the next endearing urban fantasy classic. Therefore, K.T. reached out to readers to let them know that love is love, and it doesn't matter who you love as long as you both love your child. K.T. doesn't stop there she continues to reach readers in her new novel that will be released this month November 2023, "THE TWIN FLAME" - which you can find it at The Scottish Scrolls (2 book series) Kindle Edition (amazon.com).
