About the Author

Bestselling author of the Rain Falls series and AKA Investigations series, and Pitfall, Kelli Jae Baeli began writing as a child, exploring poetry and journaling, and eventually moving on to short stories. After a romantic fling in the military with another female soldier, she decided to write a book based on the experience. The story that evolved took on a life of its own, but it became her first novel, As You Were. This was followed quickly by Armchair Detective, a book she said she wrote because she couldn't find other lesbian fiction she liked at the time, and so wanted to write something she would want to read. She's been doing that ever since.   Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, she is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after eight years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing. Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, Baeli has also done book cover design, typography, and formatting since 1998. She also founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, and Kind Red Ink Editing, and currently publishes under the imprints Indie Literati Press, and Lesbian Literati Press.   Creativity comes as easily as breathing to Baeli. Living a life around words, books, art, and music not only fulfills her, but defines her. An independent publisher, she has authored and produced 42 books, both non-fiction and fiction, in a variety of genres. Constantly mining the world around her for literary tidbits, Baeli is always to be found with iPhone in hand, recording or thumbing in notes, a self-confessed story magpie who sees everywhere the fodder for her work. She is a talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, and loves pottery and clay sculpture, as well.   A canny mix of business woman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each and every day relentlessly feeding her muse.   After three unfortunate years in New Zealand, she now makes her American home in the quaint village of Eureka Springs.

I love this author! Ms. Baeli has quickly become one of my "must read" authors.

This novel is particularly engrossing with its somewhat detached and esoteric mood. I think the way the author describes the inner life of the main character, Amy, really lent itself to creating an almost haunted tone.

Bless her heart; Amy is a tender soul who lacks the ability to shrug off the emotional effects that present themselves in her profession as a paramedic. Over a very short amount of time she becomes witness to senseless acts of violence and neglect and she realizes her lack of power over the outcomes of these situations. Her ensuing depression and despondency seem very authentic and what I really admire is that the author in no way portrays this character as a whiney victim.

The story kicks into high gear when Amy's sleep disorder begins to color the events of the narrative. Are we seeing dreams, post-cognitive visions or memories? I was continually kept guessing right up to the end. The end and the resolution of the plot were a bit sudden for me, but the epilogue more than made up for it.

This book was a wonderful read.

Kellie Jae Baeli never ceases to amaze or delight me. Achilles Forjan was a disturbing ride into the darkness of mental illness. The suspense constantly tightened until I was in a fit to learn the answers. Kudos to Jae Baeli for showing herself to be a talented, multi-faced author.

This is the third of Ms. Baeli's books I've read and I plan to read more of them. She is an absolute MASTER of characterization! After I read her books, I catch myself wondering about the characters as if they were real people. And, no, this is not a sign I need to be in a mental ward somewhere; rather, it is a testament to how authentic her characters are. This authenticity extends to her plots as well. I can especially speak to the authenticity of the plot and characters in this particular book because I work in the emergency services field myself. This book in it's entirety, down to the smallest of details, is real enough to be based on people whom I know and work with daily.
One final big plus!... more often than not, I can guess "who done it" before the ending of a murder mystery and that just ruins the whole book for me. I also view it as a weakness in the writer's talent. However, not so in this gem of a psycho-thriller/murder mystery! I was totally and happily surprised! Reading this one was time well spent!
