From Readers' Favorite

Carry Me Away is a coming of age story written by Robb Grindstaff. Carrie lives with her Marine father, Japanese mother, and older brother Sammy until life slams her in the face. Carrie had a long-standing Friday night sleepover tradition with her best friend CinDee, and, since her parents were out, Sammy would be driving her the short distance. It was raining heavily, however, and Sammy was both a new driver and a bit stoned, and his car ended up in a ditch. Sammy didn't survive the accident, and Carrie was severely injured. Her doctors offered her little hope for more than a couple of years. So, Carrie dropped her marriage scrapbook and started a funeral scrapbook instead. Then she set about doing everything she could while she was still alive.

Robb Grindstaff's coming of age novel Carry Me Away is an awesome read. Carrie is a marvelous character who's filled with an incredible, self-effacing bravado in the face of death. I was instantly caught up in the story and loved every minute I spent reading it. Grindstaff has a gift for transporting his readers right into the action, imparting just enough information to keep them on their toes. The plot of Carry Me Away could easily have given way to a sodden and overly sentimental book, but at no time did it happen here. Instead, as Carrie rushes through (and aces) her schooling in record time, the reader gets to travel along with her and her military family all over the world. I'm still marveling at what an impressive and enjoyable book this is, and I'm looking forward to reading anything by Grindstaff that I can get my hands on. Carry Me Away is most highly recommended.

About the Author

AUTHOR: In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, I've written fiction most of my life. The newspaper biz has taken my family and me from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina and Texas, and from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, I'm as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas. I now reside in a small community in Wisconsin where I manage the business operations of a daily newspaper. The variety of places I've lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade my head. I've had a dozen short stories published in several print anthologies and e-zines, and several articles on the craft of writing fiction. My first novel, "Hannah's Voice," debuted in January 2013, and "Carry Me Away" launched in September 2013. My third novel, "Turning Trixie," is in the works for 2015. I also edit fiction and non-fiction books for authors from around the world. It helps that I'm fluent in five languages: U.S. English, U.K. English, Canadian English, and Australian English, plus my native language, Texan.

EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 120 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.
