More About the Author
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.

The book started with a mystery and proceeded to become more mysterious. My initial reaction was that it was going to be a "slasher" book, you know, Jason in a hockey mask kind of thing. That is a venue I am not overly thrilled with but I proceeded. Much to my pleasant surprise it wasn't the simplistic psycho running wild plot but much more thoughtful. I admit finding my self a bit uneasy in some of the scenes. The characterizations were good and I enjoyed the mysteriousness of the setting. Growing up in Western Pennsylvania, I could practically picture the locale. The introduction of an alien influence provides a nice twist to the characterizations. An entertaining book to read, my biggest complaint is that it could have been bumped up another hundred pages and maintained my interest. I recommend the book. Look for an interview with the author in January on my blog, Pick of the Literate.[...]
There are some really great elements to The Family Bones: children in danger, disappearing/reappearing tunnels, a well. Not to mention all of the mystery and suspense. It didn't take me long to get swept up in this book.
Characters - not developed
Story telling -- sub-par (the author couldn't even decide if she wanted 1st or 3rd person)
Genre -- Who Knows?
Just an awful read. Don't bother buying! Even if it is only 1.00 -- that is WAY TOO much to pay. I am just left wondering how on earth this was published??
Interesting turn of events or bad writing? Alas...more bad writing. *sigh*
PROS: This author has tons of imagination. Expect to be surprised at the twists and turns the story takes.
CONS: Misplaced referents, abrupt changes in point of view, and under-developed characters left me happy to set the book aside. While characters cannot be developed in short stories, they must be developed in novels lest the reader is left with the feeling of "who cares."
My conclusion: This novel displays the imagination of a Stephen King. When this author develops her skill at the craft of writing as well, she'll provide him competition.
