More About the Author
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.

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

The premise was good but the overall book needs some work. I too disliked the use of the word "love" at the end of almost everything. Read morePublished on October 26, 2012 by Josiah Klementh
