More About the Author

Growing up surrounded by the influence of science fiction, including Raiser's grandfather Henry Kunicki who grew up with famous physicist David Bohm, it was difficult not to create worlds beyond our own for Raiser.
Raiser's debut novel "The Family Bones" is a culmination of thriller, sci-fi and mystery. On the verge of movie rights, this book is popular among teens as well as adults.
Raiser is working on several novels soon to be released, and a children's line of books as well. Look out for the Pepper Fink series.
With the support of fellow well known authors, including P.S. Gifford and Linda S. Cowden (author of Grimmie) Raiser intends on making writing not just a part time hobby, but a full-time career.
Keep an eye out for this multi-talented award winning author for future hits.
Stranded: Stories from the edge of infinity... is a collection of Raiser's published short stories that have been compared to Twilight Zone, Monty Python, Douglas Adams, and...well...the utmost bizarre, and thought provoking.

"a Pound of Flesh" was my literary introduction to Kimberly Raiser.

I was prompted to take the leap into her twisted world because of the stark beauty of the cover, and the other rave reviews.
At ninety-nine cents, I figured that even if I hated the story I couldn't go wrong.

Well you know what?

I LOVED it.

It's a quick read--Raiser sells this as a shortie--but even beyond its length Raiser wrote "a Pound of FLesh" as a gripping, nail-biting, race to the finish.

And what a finish it is!

I'm not going to say anything, because I don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll just leave it at this:

You'll never see the end coming.
Not in a million years.

Incredible short... You'll never know where this pleasantly written story is headed. Kimberly Raiser had me guessing what's going to happen(on every page), and in the end I was wrong by a long-shot. Her charactor, Tracy, is in for the ride of her life... Who, what, when, where, why and how; this story is fasinating, creepy, sheer torture. What I didn't expect to be in the story would be a spoiler to say in a review... You must read it for yourself and see what the rest of us are talking about. You'll be shocked more than Tracy to find out.

This was a spooky short story that had me hooked instantly. It was so good and creepy that I was slightly disappointed when it was over. I wanted it to read more!

Was drawn into this story on the first page. Liked what little I readed, but it just stops? It is like she just never finished it and they just published the little that she wrote? I do hope that one day she decides to finish it, as I believe that it does have the potential to be a good read!

This book has a great beginning that transforms into a creepy and suspenseful build up to an unknown outcome. And what a conclusion! Do not overlook this wonderful gem of a book!

Kimberly Raiser's "A Pound of Flesh" sneaks up on you for the first two thirds of the story before unleashing its master plot. The only complaint would be that, once the cat's out of the bag, you're left wanting to know more details that what's actually appears. By then, however, it's too late, and Ms. Raiser gracefully takes her bow and exits the stage. A diabolically clever if short little read.

For a short read, this one had me on the edge of my seat. I felt like I was watching an old Twilight Zone episode, not knowing where the next scene was going to take me next. Rod Serling could have used this one in his series. This was a good one.

Great book, yes its short but right to the point and kept me wondering how it could possibly end. I loved the ending.. wow did not expect that! I'd love to see similar short stories of each person in the group to see what happens.
