Awards for The Grace of Crows
by Tracy Shawn
The Grace of Crows is the story of Saylor Crawmore, a woman tormented by anxiety. Saylor tries every cure from self-help books and therapy to medication. Nothing has worked. She's desperate for an answer. Along with Saylor's anxiety, she must navigate the ongoing rip current between the troubled generations of her family. Her aging mother's narcissism, her teenage children's compulsions, and her husband's need to pretend everything is okay compound her debilitating fears.
Saylor discovers her childhood friend Billy, homeless and ignored since his teens, and her world begins to shift. This encounter sparks Saylor's journey to gain insight into her strange fears and forge the power to overcome them. Armed with her new awareness, Saylor summons the courage to help her family.
2013 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards Nominee
"I loved this trip down Route 66. Kris Neri keeps the action rolling with a tight plot, a cast of loveable loonies and a nostalgic tour of Americana."
"Kris Neri's Lefty-Award nominated Tracy Eaton is back, this time on a wild ride along the famed cross-country road in REVENGE ON ROUTE 66. Forget the scenery -- there are murders to investigate! If you're looking for laughs, hairpin turns, and whiplash plot twists, you won't want to miss this madcap adventure. Buckle up!"
Southern Gothic steeped with Midwestern sensibility stirs the waters of the Tippecanoe River that embraces the town of Horseshoe and its inhabitants. A novel-in-stories, Horseshoe intertwines revenge, regret, murder, adultery, and insanity through the lives of the outwardly ordinary citizenry.
Cherokee McGhee Mystery
"In this new world of detective mysteries that is controlled by initials -- C.S.I. and D.N.A. it is refreshing to meet Detective Gus Churchill who operates in the style of Sam Spade or Nero Wolfe. I could envision Agatha Christie enjoying a cup of tea while reading McAleer’s Fatal Deeds on a rainy day."
-- T.M. Murphy, author of The Belltown Mystery Series
Andrew McAleer, Boston College professor of "The Master Sleuths" course, talks about his task as combat historian during his recent deployment in Afghanistan -- in The Observer at Boston College.
"In Love on the Big Screen, William Torgerson does for movies what Nick Hornby did for music in High Fidelity."
-Greg Downs, winner of the 2006 Flannery O'Connor Award
