Author Jeffrey Thomas Wright weaves intricate web of romance, intrigue, and lies in “Sage, Dead Gorgeous”

Beauty and strong will are what Sage Grey is made of. Born into a prominent Kentucky family in 1868, along with her two brothers, Frank and Andrew, she was raised on a sprawling 25,000-acre cattle ranch by their parents, Stanton and Maria Grey. Readers can follow this feisty young lady in SAGE, Dead Gorgeous, a fascinating novel by Jeff Wright.

In this book, readers will read the story of Stanton Grey, who was a man cut from granite and tempered by the blade of a bayonet during the Civil War, built the Ashley Ranch with the help of his partner, William Logan, who some say was born from a she-bear, a giant of a man, who could shoot and ride like an Indian and Earl Warren, the trading post proprietor. Stanton’s wealth was a deep, dark secret—it came by thievery which each man swore to never tell.

It wasn’t until Stanton, to further build his cattle empire, threw in with the Trans Pacific Railroad Co. busting through the Rockies to San Francisco, that the dogs of hell came a gunning, stealing the bounty he had transported out west. Sage Grey and her brothers were called upon to save their father’s ranch. With true grit and valor, Sage shows just what she is made of to those who wanted to put an end to her family.

SAGE, Dead Gorgeous will take readers to the present day where The Sheriff of Cedar Valley, Jeff Warren, Great Grandson to Earl Warren, has only one dream—to restore the run-down, decrepit mansion and turn it into a grand hotel. With the scent of old money and gold, one rides in seeking revenge. But, to everyone’s surprise, so does Sage… this time, however, she is dead.

Combining ghostly adventure with love, romance, intrigue, lies, betrayal, and cold-blooded murder, SAGE, Dead Gorgeous lets readers meet a woman who will show them ‘hell’ in her own way.

This book will be featured at the American Association of School Librarians Book Exhibit in Minneapolis, MN on October 26-30, 2011.
