Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Author Sierra Kay, a Nuyorican Poets Café Short Story Slam winner, releases her new suspense novel, "From Behind the Curtain" (ISBN: 978-0-9848477-2-3), a follow-up to her first novel, the suspense thriller, "Unhinged."
Commenting on her new book, Kay said, "This is one of the few novels that gives evil a true and distinct voice. Readers have to endure its hunger and thirst for power, before they figure out what or who it really is."
Kay’s From Behind The Curtain is a clever suspense fiction, in which the reader will encounter the story of Dee, who spent most of her life on welfare, watching her often-absent father struggle with addiction and lately, watching her mother’s battle with cancer. Dee had paid her dues, and when her Auntie M brought her to live in Atlanta, things were supposed to get better. However, she soon realizes that life is not a bed of roses, and evil had a voice that she did not recognize.
Kay’s love of the written word was predestined as a child. Her mother, concerned with the state of the public education system in Chicago, encouraged her to read anything that she could get her hands on, including the spelling bee word list that appeared in the Chicago Tribune each year. Kay was weaned on books like, Anne of the Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery and A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. However, her favorite book growing up was, Aesop’s Fables.
In 2011, Sierra Kay won a Nuyorican Poets Cafe Short Story Slam, (http://www.nuyorican.org) in New York. In the fall of 2011, Kay released her first novel Unhinged, in which deception, friendship and betrayal took center stage.
