The Clairvoyant’s Daughter Author Theresa McGarry joins me on W4CY Radio, Monday, February 17 at 5 p.m. Eastern to discuss her book, which is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. From the book description:
It has been fifteen years since her mom and step-dad were killed in a car accident on Riversbridge Road and Dyane saved herself and her injured sister. Fifteen years since she heard a man laugh while her parents died, a man she knew was a monster.Dyane has hidden her psychic gift, allowing her sister to take the credit for the amazing insights and visions that help people, including local law enforcement when little girls are kidnapped. But the monster of her nightmares has returned and it soon becomes clear that she can no longer hide, not from her talent, not from the monster and not from the hero of her visions, police detective Jefferson Hatch. The violent storm she knew would come has arrived. Time has run out for all of them because the monster is tired of substitutes for the one he really wants—Dyane.
Theresa J. McGarry was born and raised in Southern Arizona where she learned to appreciate a wide open, if somewhat sere, landscape as well as spectacular mountain ranges. She moved to Illinois and eventually attended college in Urbana-Champaign, learning to appreciate the Midwest’s changing seasons, especially autumn. However, her last winter in Illinois (with wind chills hitting 80 degrees below zero) convinced her that she needed to move back to warmer climes and she ended up in central Texas. In addition to writing, she has worked as a paid babysitter, reluctant ironer of shirts, shoe store clerk (accumulating more shoes than she possessed previously or since), service station manager (where she helped countless confused drivers find their way back to the correct highway), vacuum cleaner factory worker (the percussive noise of power drivers cannot be overstated), corn de-tasseling crew boss (hot, humid cornfields with a gaggle of twelve-year-old girls), office manager (un-amusing), executive suite secretary (for an entire set of good old boys), bookkeeper (even less amusing), food waitress (a superior sense of balance is required), cocktail waitress (dance faster than grabby drunks), cook’s assistant (three days getting up at 3:30 a.m. was enough), professorial research assistant (located every library on campus), movie theater cashier (free movies!), data entry operator (serial daydreams ensued), Web editor/researcher (paid to surf), story editor (alien cats doing what?) and para-professional librarian (you’re looking for a book with a red cover?). She published her first poem in a class newsletter in fourth grade and wrote her first story (science fiction) at eleven. She published poems throughout her formal educational years in school publications and later several short science fiction stories in small press magazines. She was a Finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest (with a story that has since expanded into a series). Candles in December is her first published book of poetry and The Clairvoyant’s Daughter is her first published novel. Currently polishing the first novel in a science fiction series, she wishes to go on sharing her poems and stories with as many people as want to read them.
