Stars on Ruby

Tears of sorrow mixed with frustration sprang to my eyes. Were these really my parents? Would I ever remember?

May 23rd, 2019

 

Wendy C. Jorgensen grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and began
writing in second grade, furiously recording her hopes and dreams in a
denim-covered diary. Besides hanging out at the library, she loved soaking up
the rays—while reading a book, of course. During her sophomore year of high
school, Wendy’s family moved to Carson City, Nevada, and she thought her life
had ended. The desert, sagebrush, and cowboys were a far cry from the ocean,
palm trees, and surfers of Florida. Fortunately, within six months, the family
relocated to Lake Tahoe, and her outlook improved dramatically.
Wendy started college at the University of Colorado in Boulder,
followed by a year at the University of Nevada in Reno and two years at Brigham
Young University, where she worked as a reporter and copy editor for The Daily
Universe. A decision to take a short break from school turned into a
twelve-year college hiatus in Lake Tahoe. After a two-year stint in the civil
engineering program at California State University in Sacramento, Wendy
returned to Colorado and graduated from CU with a degree in English Writing. It
was a long, but valuable, educational journey.
After twenty years in Colorado, Wendy recently moved back to
Northern Nevada, close enough to Lake Tahoe to enjoy the beautiful scenery but
far enough away to escape the heavy winters. She lives with a wonderful
husband and a golden retriever who’s often mistaken for a sloth. Her
two brainy and creative sons make her want to be smarter. Wendy hopes someday
to journey to the stars.

A teenage girl recovers in a Sacramento hospital,
the sole survivor of a terrible accident that killed her parents—parents she
can’t remember. All she knows for sure is she’s in danger. For the girl, known
only as Angie, staying put is not an option.

 

After saving a friend from a vicious attack reveals
she’s no ordinary human, Angie races to find a safe place. A chance encounter
with the intriguing Michael Winter leads her over the Sierras to Lake Tahoe,
where she’s nearly abducted. As she escapes to Colorado, she struggles to
unravel who she is and where she came from; instead the mystery of her identity
deepens.
 
Her only hope is to find the truth before it’s too late.
Snippet:
When we
entered the hospital morgue, Dr. Burns and Penny each took one of my arms as if
they could protect me from what was about to occur. A faint, sickly odor
emanated from the icy cold, meticulously clean chamber. A somber technician
guided us to the bodies which were covered with sheets and lying side by side.
I shuffled over and braced myself as the covers were pulled down to reveal what
lay beneath.

 

            I gasped at the still, pale faces.
Something deep inside of me reacted to the man and woman. Both were blond and
sharp-featured, and the woman’s fingers were long like mine. Even though I
couldn’t identify them, I felt certain these people meant a great deal to me. Tears
of sorrow mixed with frustration sprang to my eyes. Were these really my
parents? Would I ever remember?

friend Eva for sympathy, which is tricky considering Brian is also
Eva’s father.

 

 

Timber
eventually finds love again with sexy actor Alex and moves her
company Soothing Bliss into a beautiful commercial space. With an
exciting new man and a business that’s flourishing, Timber feels as
though she’s on the perfect path. But she’s thrown into a
whirlwind of turmoil when Soothing Bliss’s new location is
threatened to be purchased by a callous art curator, and Alex’s
popularity sparks his wandering eye.

 

 

Then
Brian reappears and they start up an unlikely friendship, giving
Timber just the boost she needs. As Christmastime approaches,
Timber’s wish is that her favorite holiday will bring about a
miracle in her fight to keep Soothing Bliss in its rightful home.

whether she and Brian can work through their past and mend a
relationship that perhaps never should have unraveled.

 

 

Reader
Alert!

West always plays by the rules. So even she’s surprised when she
decides to leave her prestigious job as a chemist and launch a beauty
and wellness company. Her fiancé Brian, who was her chemistry

father, isn’t happy with this decision. His disapproval leads to
their breakup, but a devastated Timber eventually finds love again
with a charismatic movie star. Life is good until both her new
relationship and business begin to falter, leaving Timber
reevaluating Brian and pondering whether she should give him a second
chance.

 

 

To
My Readers:

 

A
story just isn’t a story without a large dose of romance and a
happily ever after. THE ROAD TO BLISS is just that. This novel is a
beautiful tale of love and second chances, with plenty of fun, drama
and turmoil in between! My main character’s love affair feels so
real to me, to the point where I found myself rooting for her in
hopes that everything would work in her favor. Writing this book was
a wonderful journey, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I
enjoyed writing it!

A promising new YA series about a totalitarian America

May 19th, 2019
Counteract
Resistance
Series Book 1
by
Tracy Lawson
Genre:
YA Dystopian Adventure
 
Who
do you trust when your world unravels and everything you believed is
a lie?

 

 

For
the past fifteen years, The Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has
guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism. Teenagers
Tommy and Careen have never known life without Civilian Restrictions.
For them, there’s no social media. No one is allowed to gather in
public places or attend concerts or sporting events. Only a small,
select group of adults have driving privileges, but it’s a small
price to pay for safety.

 

 

Now
a new, more deadly, terrorist threat looms: airborne chemical weapons
that can be activated without warning. The OCSD is ready with an
antidote to counteract the effects of the toxins. Three drops a day
is all it takes. It’s a small price to pay for health.

 

 

The
day the disaster sirens signal the dreaded attack, Tommy shares his
last dose with Careen, even though doing so might hasten his death.
It’s a small price to pay for a friend.Follow Tommy and Careen as
they uncover a web of lies and deceit reaching to the highest levels
of the United States government and join an underground resistance
group that’s determined to expose the truth.

 

 

“Counteract
is a novel for our times, but with a decidedly different plot twist.
Most dystopian thrillers focus on the devastating consequences of the
unleashed virus or poison on society, community, and the individual.
They become character studies of the protagonists and
antagonists.

 

 

“Tracy
Lawson’s novel asks an even more disturbing question–what if the
real culprit was someone or something we trusted? I thought The
Hunger Games might be the Millennial generation’s version of George
Orwell’s 1984. Now, I think Counteract and the Resistance Series are
more primed to take that spot.”–SR Staley, author of St. Nic,
Inc., and the Tortuga Bay series.

 

Goodreads
* Amazon
 
 
 
 
Resist
Resistance
Series Book 2
 
“I
loved the first book in this series so much that I jumped right into
the second one to continue the adventure. The Resistance Series is
another great YA dystopian adventure that combines elements of
thriller, romance, dystopian, and much more to create a well-rounded
story that is sure to appeal to many readers – it definitely has my
attention.”–TFL Reader, top 500 Amazon Reviewer

 

 

Knowledge
comes with a price.

 

 

Tommy
and Careen no longer believe the Office of Civilian Safety and
Defense’s miracle antidote can protect them from a terrorist’s
chemical weapons. After accidentally discovering the antidote’s real
purpose,they’ve join the fight to undermine the OCSD’s bid for total
control of the population.

 

 

Being
part of the Resistance brings with it a whole new set of challenges.
Not everyone working for change proves trustworthy, and plans to
spark a revolution go awry with consequences far beyond anything they
bargained for.

 

 

Tommy
and Careen’s differing viewpoints threaten to drive a wedge between
them, and their budding relationship is tested as their destinies
move toward an inevitable confrontation with the forces that
terrorize the nation.

 

 

Where
does love fit in when you’re trying to start a
revolution?

 

 

“Dystopian
YA literature needs more writers like Tracy Lawson! Lawson’s lean
writing style and idea-driven dialogue reminded me of the novels of
Ayn Rand, particularly Anthem, but Resist is much faster paced and
holds your attention from the beginning.

 

 

“Resist
picks up right where the first book, Counteract, leaves off, and
readers are thrown immediately into the action. I also loved the way
Lawson doesn’t give her characters the easy way out–they are forced
to make decisions and suffer the consequences. These are real people
that anchor the story, even if the setting is not.” –SR Staley,
author of St. Nic, Inc. and the Tortuga Bay series

The
Greatest Risk Is To Take No Risk At All.

 

 

Nationwide
food shortages have sparked civil unrest, and the Office of Civilian
Safety and Defense’s hold on the people is slipping. The
Resistance’s efforts to hasten the OCSD’s demise have resulted in
disaster, with Tommy Bailey and Careen Catecher taking the blame for
the ill-fated mission in OP-439.

 

 

Both
teens struggle to survive the circumstances that force them into the
national spotlight—and this time, they’re on opposite sides. On
the run and exiled from the Resistance members in BG-098, Tommy makes
his way to a Resistance safe house in the capital.

 

 

The
OCSD is preparing to monitor all under-eighteens with the Cerberean
Link, a device that protects them against hunger and sickness and can
even locate them if they’re lost. Tommy’s now living in close
quarters with Atari, an operative who has been assigned to sabotage
the Link. But does Atari plan to use it for his own
purposes?

 

 

Through
it all, Tommy refuses to believe Careen’s loyalties have shifted
away from the Resistance, and he’s willing to assume any risk to
reconnect with her. Will they be able to trust each other when it
matters most?

The
Explosive Conclusion to the Award-Winning Resistance Series

 

 

To

Fugitive
Resistance fighter Tommy Bailey has come out of hiding to help rescue
Careen Catecher from the clutches of the Office of Civilian Safety
and Defense, where she’s been held and interrogated for information
about the rebel group. The OCSD is poised to launch the Cerberean
Link, a security device that will put all minors under constant
surveillance under the guise of protecting them.

 

 

Fearful
that OCSD director Madalyn Davies’s bid for control won’t stop
there, the Resistance puts its own plan in motion to sabotage the
Link and oust Madalyn from the directorship. Just when everything
seems leveraged in the Resistance’s favor, treachery, lies, and
long-held secrets threaten to derail it all.

 

 

Will
even a life together on the run be impossible for Tommy and Careen?
Or will the Resistance’s efforts convince the public to put their
fears aside and demand freedom?

Careen’s
Prequel to the Resistance Series
 
“What
was our heroine Careen Catecher like BEFORE she became a firebrand
for the Resistance? Well, she was just a normal teenage girl trying
to survive college in the totalitarian state of Tracy Lawson’s
creation.” –review by Patrick Hodges

 

 

“Careen
is a believable, strong female protagonist who, having survived a
harrowing terrorist attack, is now trying to survive [college] in a
new ‘Quadrant’ where she can’t seem to fit in.” –review by
Candace Williams

 

 

A
strong heroine is made, not born.

 

 

Though
Careen Catecher survived a terrorist attack when she was nine, her
childhood ended on that awful day. Now, nine years later, she’s
ready for her life to truly begin.

 

 

A
full scholarship to a prestigious university far from her beleaguered
home quadrant seems like a dream come true, but when she arrives on
campus, she’s perceived as a charity case, despite grades and test
scores that prove she’s the academic equal of the best students
there.

 

 

Careen
knows she’s tough enough to survive just about anything, but
fitting in with her acquisitive peers—at least on the surface—is
necessary if she’s going to leave the past behind and claim the
stable future she craves.

 

 

But
her past won’t stay buried. She’s only been at school for a few
weeks when a cryptic message from an unlikely friend raises questions
that may put her in danger all over again.

Series, “a promising new YA series about a totalitarian America.”

When death washes ashore on reality TV, who’s to blame? And what’s real?

May 14th, 2019

“Intelligently conceived and well-executed…A mystery that thoughtfully reflects on the hazy line between suspicion and reckless mania.” – Kirkus Reviews

Zack Hacker the author of Cut Reality a murder mystery 

Join Jason Debord as he seeks clarity following the death of a reality TV co-star and ends up uncovering criminal conspiracy.

When Jason returned home from competing on Beached he’d lost weight, couldn’t sleep, and felt more alone than ever. But, he expected those changes. Jason had no way to predict that one of his fellow competitors would fling himself from a cliff. Unless he didn’t.

Jason can’t believe it, but the network broadcasts the alleged suicide to the world, so he pushes forward in his own amateur investigation. Met with resistance from the cast and crew, he persists only through the support of his developing romance with Blake, a psychologist who observes alarming similarities between her patient and her partner.

Events in Cut Reality have a variety of interpretations. While under the watchful eye of the public, Jason has to decide: is what he uncovers too coincidental to be true, or so hard to accept because it’s his new reality.

Buy Zack Hacker’s anticipated debut novel to find out what Jason discovers…

What critics are saying:

“On the surface, Cut Reality is a murder mystery; but actually it is much more…Highly recommended for those who like their intrigue steeped in philosophical insights and dilemmas.” – Midwest Book Review

“When I heard the premise of Cut Reality, I almost died…and I wouldn’t lie about that.” – Jonny Fairplay, Survivor NSFW

“[Zack Hacker] makes poignant critiques though subtle plot developments, holding back from judging society at large, but willing to poke holes in some of our accepted values…From the first tension-filled scene…Cut Reality will keep readers guessing, but also leave them with plenty to think about.” – SPR

“The perfect genre book at the perfect time.” – San Francisco Book Review

“Cut Reality is the type of thoughtful, provocative work that you don’t see much of in the reality TV fanbase anymore. I had a lot of fun reading it.” – Mario Lanza, author of When It Was Worth Playing For, The Funny 115, and host of Survivor Historians

“★★★★★ I have always loved books that can surprise me – this book did that and more.” – Readers’ Favorite Reviews

 

The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank account got drained and she almost got arrested

New
Orleans Rush
by
Kelly Siskind
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
A
fun mixture of magic, sensuality, and iconic pin-up girl style. The
romance in 
New
Orleans Rush
 will
leave you smiling and filled with optimism.” – Helen Hoang, author
of 
The Kiss
Quotient

 

 

Falling
for your surly boss is a rotten idea.

 

Letting him saw you in half
is even worse…

 

 

Beatrice
Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have
silver linings…until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and
finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into
lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man’s
car.

 

 

Now
she works for Huxley Marlow of the Marvelous Marlow Boys, getting
shoved in boxes as an on-stage magician’s assistant. A cool job for
some, but Bea’s been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She
also 
maybe fantasizes
about her boss’s adept hands and what else they can do.

 

 

She
absolutely will not fall for him, or kiss him senseless. Until she
does. The scarred, enigmatic Huxley has unwittingly become her muse,
unlocking her artistic dry spell, but his vague nightly activities
are highly suspect. The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank
account got drained and she almost got arrested. Surely this can’t
end 
that badly…right?

Thugs chase him, the scientists in Hell want to prod and examine the first possessed demon in history, and he can’t find the darn grimoire

May 13th, 2019
The
Good Inside Me
by
Barbara Russell
Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance 
 
Dragons,
short-tempered archdemons, and hysterical damned souls—Shax is used
to dealing with all that. He’s a young fire demon and lives in
Hell, after all. What he’s not used to is being possessed by a
human. A very good human and a pretty girl at that: sixteen-year-old
Tolis. Despite still having control of his body most of the time,
Shax can hear Tolis’s voice inside his head and feels what she
feels constantly.
Shax’s
mentor claims that Tolis hides an ancient, powerful grimoire, a book
of spells, and proposes a deal: if Shax finds it, he’ll help Shax
get work as a dragon keeper—Shax’s dream job. Tolis swears she
doesn’t have the grimoire and asks Shax to help her father, whose
soul is turning evil by the minute. Unless Tolis does something, her
dad’s soul will end in Hell. Hoping to convince her to give him the
grimoire, and not because Shax cares about the man’s soul, he
agrees to help.
Goodness
is overrated. Since Shax decided to help Tolis, his life has turned
into a hurdle race. Thugs chase him, the scientists in Hell want to
prod and examine the first possessed demon in history, and he can’t
find the darn grimoire.
And
the worst part? Due to the unavoidable presence of Tolis, who keeps
intruding into his evil thoughts, Shax discovers an almost decent
side of himself. In no time at all, he catches himself doing actual
good deeds. Is he becoming—yuck—good?

Pamela––and her pals in the Psychology Department at Grace University––will not stop until they find the person who committed this murder in the round

May 11th, 2019
Sounds
of Murder
Pamela
Barnes Acoustic Mysteries Book 1
by
Patricia Rockwell
Genre:
Cozy Mystery
 
SOUNDS
OF MURDER tells a tale of academic intrigue and death. At Grace
University, a small southern college, no one in the Psychology
Department likes Charlotte Clark, so no one is particularly upset
when she is found murdered in the department’s million-dollar
computer lab. But because she discovered the body, Associate
Professor Pamela Barnes feels obligated to find Charlotte’s killer.
When she discovers a recording of the murder that was accidentally
produced during Charlotte’s struggle with the killer, she begins
her own investigation.

 

 

Along
the way, Pamela agonizes with her own conscience as she fights her
growing fear. She attempts to understand her mysterious Department
Chair, keep her curious colleagues informed, placate her protective
husband, and avoid antagonizing a local rube detective who belittles
her efforts–all while she struggles to make sense of the sounds on
the recording.

 

 

As
she gets deeper and deeper into her analysis—trying to connect what
she hears in the recording with sounds from people (and potential
killers) around her–she gets closer and closer to the killer.
However, the killer is observing Pamela’s efforts and resolving to
stop her.

ask Psychology professor and acoustics expert Pamela Barnes to assist

the killing? And how does this crime connect to the impending death
of a wealthy carpet manufacturer hundreds of miles away? And the
driven behavior of his conscientious son who hides a very important
secret? Unknown to Pamela, another thread of this strange mystery is
about to unravel. Will she be able to solve it before another victim
is claimed? 

 

 

In

series, we follow feisty amateur sleuth Pamela Barnes who doesn’t
let academic duties prevent her from fighting crime. And Pamela

Who

the three women who left romantic voice mail messages on the cell
phone found next to his body in the motel room?

 

 

The
police don’t have a clue. None of the coach’s family, friends, or
colleagues recognize the voices of the unidentified women–and
probable mistresses. Who could they be? This sounds like a case for
Pamela Barnes, local Psychology professor, acoustics expert, and
sometimes amateur sleuth. Can she identify the three women (and
potential murder suspects) from just the sound of their voices on the
voice mail?

 

 

Who
are these mystery women and how did the popular coach manage to
conduct affairs with all of them unbeknownst to everyone around him?
And how did he keep his trio of lovers from finding out about each
other—or did he? It’s a tangled romantic web that ultimately led

Orexi…Feasting at the Modern Greek Table

May 9th, 2019
Orexi!

Feasting at the Modern Greek Table

by Theo Michaels

Photography by Mowie Kay

Published by Ryland Peters & Small

£16.99 / $19.95

Genre: Cookbook 

 

 
In
this enticing collection of more than 80 recipes inspired by the
flavours of Greece and Cyprus, MasterChef UK’s Theo Michaels pays
homage to his family heritage, championing traditional dishes and
sharing his own modern cooking.
Presenting
a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, his fresh and
delicious food is organized into chapters entitled Meze, Sea, Land,
Sun, Fire and Sundowners, evoking the Greek way of life.
You
too can eat like a Greek by celebrating simplicity, seasonality,
abundance, healthy balance and most importantly, the joy of sociable
eating.
Beautiful
food sings from these pages: from juicy watermelon, glossy kalamata
olives, to fragrant oregano-roasted meats and delicate fish wrapped
in vine leaves. Choose a selection of mouth-watering dips and sharing
plates to create a Cypriot-style meze; enjoy the freshest fish and
seafood, perfectly grilled or fried and served with nothing more than
a dusting of salt flakes and a squeeze of lemon juice to season; cook
tender yogurt-marinated lamb on skewers over charcoal and wrap it in
fluffy homemade pita to experience souvlaki at home; or whip up
vibrant vegetable and pulse dishes, from cracked wheat pourgouri to
slow-cooked fasolia beans. Finally, make rich Greek desserts the
sweet note to end your meal; serve just enough syrup-drenched baklava
with a bitter black coffee to satisfy that craving or unwind with an
Ouzo Sour or Brandy Sunburn Cocktail.

In this gripping conclusion to The Liberty Box Trilogy, new and surprising alliances are formed, passions run high, and our heroes learn what they are really made of

May 8th, 2019
The
Liberty Box
The
Liberty Box Trilogy Book 1
by
C.A. Gray
Genre:
New Adult Dystopian
 
**Dystopian
mind control with metaphysics**

 

 

Kate
Brandeis has it all: a famous reporter at the age of twenty-four,
she’s the face of the Republic of the Americas. She has a loving
fiancé and all the success she could wish for. But when she learns
of the death of a long-forgotten friend, her investigations unravel
her perfect memories, forcing her to face the fact that she’s been
living a lie.

 

 

Jackson
MacNamera, trained from a young age in the art of mind control,
returns to the Republic for his mother’s funeral. Within a few
hours of his arrival, authorities collect Jackson and take him by
force to a room ironically called The Liberty Box, where he must
choose between surrendering his thoughts to the new Republic, or
fleeing for his freedom.

 

 

Kate,
bereaved and confused, finds her way to a cave community of refugees,
where Jackson seems to offer her an escape from her grief. The two
forge an uneasy bond, and in the process Jackson learns that Kate has
some insight which may help the hunters in their attempt to free
other citizens from the tyranny of the Potentate. Against the
expressed wishes of the Council, the hunters plot a series of daring
raids, attempting to prove that not only is freedom possible, but
that the citizens are not too far gone to desire it. But with the
odds so stacked against them, can the refugees succeed in their
rescue missions right under the Potentate’s nose?

The
Eden Conspiracy
The
Liberty Box Trilogy Book 2
 
The
refugee caves have been destroyed, and most of the refugees are dead.
The Potentate now knows of their existence and will stop at nothing
to wipe them out completely. He suspects that terrorist Jackson
MacNamera is among them, as well as reporter Kate Brandeis’s
fiancé, hacker Will Anderson—and probably therefore Kate herself.
Now that the Potentate is aware of security threats, most of the
strategies the rebels used to get back onto the grid before now no
longer work. The Potentate knows the rebels are on foot, and he knows
they were at the caves not long ago—they can’t get far. 

 

 

The
remaining rebels, among them Jackson and Kate, have Kate’s fiancé
Will to thank for their survival: he arrived back from the dead and
in the nick of time, bearing classified information about the
Potentate’s plans to expand his influence internationally. But the
remaining rebels and the Council cannot agree on whether their top
priority should be spreading truth far and wide and freeing as many
citizens from government control as possible, knowing that they will
likely die in the process—or escaping to New Estonia, in hopes that
they might live out the rest of their days in peace.

 

 

Kate,
meanwhile, finds herself torn: between Jackson and the fiancé she
thought she lost, and between the damsel-in-distress she once was,
and the rebel she believes she has always been underneath. Whether
the other hunters will support her or no, she knows she must use her
influence over the people of the Republic to tell them the truth, no
matter the cost. But is she strong enough to withstand the
government’s lies?

The
Phoenix Project
The
Liberty Box Trilogy Book 3
 
The
haven city of Beckenshire has been demolished, and most of the rebels
lie beneath the rubble. The few that remain scramble to communicate
with the the outside world, knowing that if they are to stand a
chance in the coming war, they can’t do it alone. In a last ditch
effort to grow their ranks, the remaining rebels systematically
destroy the repeaters which help to propagate the control center
signals. And it’s working: citizens in targeted cities are waking
up in droves. But Ben Voltolini will stop at nothing to quell the
uprising before it has a chance to get off the ground. And he has one
major ace up his sleeve: Kate Brandeis.

 

 

During
Kate’s broadcast to the nation, Voltolini unleashed targeted
brainwave signals against her, causing her to allow both Jackson
MacNamera’s capture, and her own. Now, despite Voltolini’s
exquisite wining and dining, she can’t seem to stop the panic
attacks. Whom can she trust? What is truth? Is there even such a
thing?

 

 

Meanwhile,
imprisoned and hopeless, Jackson realizes the depths of his feelings
for Kate only after he has already lost her. The incredible
self-control upon which he prides himself gets put to the ultimate
test when he meets an unlikely ally who just may turn the tide in the
rebels’ favor—but only if Jackson can put aside his own
bitterness. In this gripping conclusion to The Liberty Box Trilogy,
new and surprising alliances are formed, passions run high, and our
heroes learn what they are really made of. Do they have what it takes
to fight for freedom—even if it means paying the ultimate price?

C.A.
Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies:
PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends),
THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology),
and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and
super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that
she’s interested in learning more about herself, and then creates
lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it. Her
stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual
content, and she abhors depressing endings… but they’re not all
kittens and rainbows either! She also listens to and reviews
audiobooks on her website, here on Goodreads, on Instagram, and on
her podcast, Clean Audiobook Reviews, where she also
occasionally interviews other authors.

 

 

By
day, C.A. Gray practices naturopathic medicine, podcasts, and writes
medical non-fiction under her maiden name (Dr. Lauren Deville). She
lives in Tucson, AZ with her husband Frank, and together they
maintain an occasionally contentious film review blog (under her real
name: Lauren Baden. Three names. Yes.) She’s kind of the queen of
multitasking—so in her spare time, she creates whatever meals or
crafts she found most recently on Pinterest, drinks lots of coffee
(Aeropress btw) and occasional wine (reds—and she saves the corks
for craft projects), works out (while listening to audiobooks), and
studies the Bible—about half of the podcasts on Christian Natural
Health are scripture meditations.

 

 

She
does sleep, too. Promise.
