Sierra Kay Pens Suspense Novel “From Behind the Curtain” out August

Author’s follow up to “Unhinged” to release second book August 2013, eBook July 12th

CHICAGO, IL – June 18, 2013 – Author Sierra Kay [], a Nuyorican Poets Cafe Short Story Slam winner’s new suspense novel, “From Behind the Curtain” (ISBN: 978-0-9848477-2-3) is set for release on August, 2013, a follow-up to her first novel “Unhinged.”

Kay commented on her new book saying, “In ‘From Behind the Curtain’, I love how the characters change throughout the novel, and how our perception of them changes. You have characters that are doing the best they can with the hand they’ve been dealt. Some do better than others, but that’s all any of us can do. It’s about survival. Personally, I’d like to think I would react differently in some of these situations, but the truth is do you really know until life tests you.”

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. In Atlanta, Dee had new clothes, a full fridge, and her own bedroom. However, she soon realizes that life is not a bed of roses.

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 [], in New York. In the fall of 2011, Kay released her first novel Unhinged, in which deception, friendship and betrayal took center stage.
