More About the Author

Every person has a story. Mine is simple. I was born at a very early age in Huntsville, TX. My family was traditional; father, mother, sister, and me. My growing up years were spent in various small town across Texas, from Huntsville, to Vernon, to Mineral Wells, and to Dripping Springs where I graduated from High School. Daddy worked for the telephone company, told stories, sang songs, played the guitar, and taught us that play was just as important as work. Mom worked at home writing books, teaching Bible studies, helping out others on a regular basis, and taught us the value of mentoring. My sister was a bossy older sister, but I loved her when I wasn't resenting her. Normal American family.
Early in elementary school I discovered the wonder of books and stories. I was a voracious reader and by the time I was in Junior High, I had discovered Ray Bradbury, J. R. R. Tolkien, Louis L'Amour, Isaac Asimov, Harlequin Romances, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. In High School the list expanded to include F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, L. Ron Hubbard (to my mother's chagrin), and many others. The key thing I discovered through this hodge podge of literature was that I wanted to be "that person" whose name was on the front cover. I wanted to write. So I did.
Post-High School saw three brief college semesters before embarking on wedded bliss and motherhood. Two children and seven years later, bliss turned to disaster and a divorce. Fortunately, another waited in the wings and a second, much more successful marriage occurred in 1988. We're still together.
Throughout all these life events, I have written stories, essays, poems, blogs, novels, plays, and a plethora of journal entries. Most of what made it to paper will never see the light of day. It was therapy, experimental, emotional release, and necessary. The words that finally make it to a finished product are few, and I hope, are the best I could do at that time. I have four published works to my credit, and more in the works.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy watching football, college basketball, music, and coffee. Lots of coffee. I am an active member of Toastmasters International. I am also a certified Life Coach, Communication Coach, a professional speaker, and corporate trainer. You can see my professional side at www.wordcrafterconsultants.com
Every person has story. Enjoy the ones I've created in my books, but don't forget to write your own as well. No one will ever tell your story like you can.

Review:

"Terror By Night" by R.W. Ley was some excellent enjoyable read that will keep you reading until you are finished. I was simply not be able to put it down and I was left wanting more! Be ready for a lots of suspense and even some 'christian perspective' into the storyline.

"Terror By Night" was of Libby Bartlett who had two suitors and a psychotic stalker who was trying to do harm to her. Who would be able to save this lovely person? Would it be the Sean Patrick the famous, wealthy and attractive man or the Detective Ryan Brinks who had been assigned to investigate Libby's case? Now, this is where I say you must pick up this excellent read to find out the answers.

This novel moves very quickly and the descriptive scenes were simply well brought out to the reader. The characters were simply off the chart good! I was really taken back at how this author displayed each of the characters and simply made this come to life. Just to name a few... Libby Bartlett (heroine), Sean Patrick (Grainger-hero 1), Troy, Bernie(dog), Detective Ryan Brinks(hero2), Gina, Meredith, Denny(Denton Bainbridge) Nancy, Mrs. Tearlach, Ruth, Roger, Maggie & Geoffrey Grainger, Jenny, Nigel Bannister,Valerie Norwood, Inspector Ludlow, Belinda, Glyn Tiernay, Dr. Samuel Ennis, Abigail, Caleb, Sarah, and Jonathan. I think I got them all listed but you will just have to pick up this good read to see if I left anyone out!

If you are in for a excellent read that you will not be able to put down until the end....pick up "Terror By Night" and see what this author has presented. I would recommend this as a excellent read and even hope that this author will continue this series.

Having met the author at a toastmasters function, I decided to try this book. Normally would not read this genre, but am really glad I did. The first chapter grabbed my attention. About half way thru the book, it reached "great book stage". Where you stay up late reading to finish the book. You look at the clock, it's 3 in the morning, you need to go to sleep, but instead continue reading because you want to know what is going to happen to the characters and the story. I hope the author continues the series.

Not the old classic. This is a Gripping original story,and it moves quickly. You can "see" where the scenes are through her descriptions. The characters are believeable, three dimensional and pop off the pages.Well worth the read.

I actually think this book deserves 5 stars for storyline. This book was so intense that I had to put it down a couple of times to catch my breath. It is absolutely wonderful to read a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat without having to include bad language and sex to the story. This book had great character development and plot. I can't wait to start the sequel: Arrows by Day. I am glad I did not know about this book before now because I love reading sequels back to back. The storyline is fresh in your mind and you don't miss a beat going from one to the next. I will be reading more of Ms. Ley in the future.

Now for the reason I gave this book 4 stars: There were "numerous" missing words throughout the book. You knew what word was needed and you just added it. I love reading books that are so well put together that you see in your mind what is going on in the story. The missing words interrupted that process to a degree. I think Ms. Ley needs some new proof readers. However, do not dare miss reading this wonderful book because of this problem.

This is definitely Christian Fiction. The main character, Libby, is a 34-year old woman who hasn't been kissed since her senior prom. She incessantly lectures her younger brother about his behavior. She comes off as prudish and prissy. She's deeply faithful, relying on God to make decisions for her and to lead her in the right direction.

I got approximately 30% through the book and stopped reading. I just couldn't read another line of Libby asking God for answers and I couldn't read another line spoken by Sean that ended in "love". "Shall we go, love?" "How are you doing, love?" "Do you know you're beautiful, love." It was as bad as Andrew Greely's Irish characters who always speak like they are asking a question.

I didn't notice this was marked as Christian Fiction, so that's completely my fault. 3 stars the trite writing and poor police procedure.

Sorry but this was just a little too religious for me. However, I would have kept reading, but the author apparently didn't take the time to study police procedures and get them right in the story. Someone broke into Libby's house...but nothing was taken. Normal police procedure would be for two officers to make sure the house was empty and secure, then tell the home owner to change the locks and go back out on patrol. Not in this book! Six policed cars came screaming up to the house, lights flashing! Sirens blaring! Guns drawn! Then they paid for Libby, her brother and their dog to spent FOUR nights in a motel while they "processed" the crime scene!!! Oy. No. Just - no. Police departments don't have time nor the money for that. They are busy looking for real criminals.

That was enough for me - about 20 percent into the book, I quite.
