As we’ve gotten to know our customers we have found that they are more than what they seem! They are authors, actors, bee keepers/honey makers, artists, knitters, brew masters, yogis, dog trainers, musicians and so much more! We’d like to showcase these folks and share with our community how cool they are and where you can find them and their work.
Our first customer that we’d like to showcase is “B.W.” I can’t disclose her true name (how cool is that?!) but I can tell you she writes under the pseudonym, Krysten Layne. Krysten is a newly published author!!! Her book Lord Ainsley can be found on Amazon or you can obtain a signed copy here at the shop.
Here's a brief synopsis:
As a woman with a peculiar talent for wielding scalpels in 1800s’ London, Ms. Rielly is no stranger to delving into the taboo side of life and death. Determined to find her missing friend, Ms. Rielly steps inside Ainsley Manor and into an investigation involving murder and the strange affliction cast over its lord. She promptly realizes that striking a bargain with him is inevitable and will require all of the skills she has secretly nurtured as a back-alley biologist. Will living with the man possibly responsible for the atrocities she finds yield the answer she sought in the beginning? Or will it plant seeds of doubt about herself? As the city streets gradually become more dangerous and the boundaries between them more indistinguishable, Rielly and Lord Ainsley find the truth may only be released with the blood within their veins. Whether or not by choice …
I asked B.W. where the idea for her book came from and she said it was born from a dream she had. She thought the characters were so interesting that others would enjoy it too. She said the characters and story literally would not leave her alone and she was just itching to write it. She currently has a sequel in the works! Outside of writing B.W. narrates audible books, is active in community service, lives with her sweet husband, Devon and their kitty cat.
