The bodies lost could not be found…

Kandace Callahan disappeared three years ago. Assuming her to be dead, her family buried an empty casket and moved on, but they didn’t give up finding out what had happened to her.

Beneath the lies and snow-clad graves…

On the outside, Kay Oliver is the perfect wife. She wears a gentle smile and never argues. She and her husband Steven are town heroes.

On the inside, Kay is angry and bitter and she doesn’t know why. That is, until an out-of-towner comes in and shows her the truth. She’s the product of an experiment gone wrong and he’s a private detective sent by her family to find her.

Cries the truth of what happened…

When Steven finds out that she knows the truth, he begins a plot to erase her memory and replace it with one that will suit him better. But with so many unknown variables, he can’t be aware of what will happen if he trusts the wrong person.

…at Harrow Haves.

The truth begins a frantic race to stay alive. Will she make it back to her family? Or will they want the woman she has become?


About the Author
Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.

I sometimes have two or three drinks at my desk while I work. Non-alcoholic. I do like to joke that it’s because I’m a “heavy drinker” though. I always seem to be thirsty.

I am in love with all things Asian - Anime, Manga, Pocky, Kpop, Jrock, Kdramas. You name it, I probably love it.

What are your thoughts on book covers- in your opinion do they make or break a book?

Book covers are number one the first thing anyone sees about your book after the title. I know people who refused to pick up a certain book because they hated the cover. It got a new cover and they read it in a day and loved it. So yes. Covers definitely make or break a book. Hands down. No question. Make sure you have the best cover you can afford.

How do you come up with character names? How do you come up with novel titles?

Character names are important to me. Sometimes I will spend hours looking up name meanings, origins, spellings because I want them to mean something specific. Sometimes a name will come to me and I will know nothing about it, but I know it’s the right name. Sometimes I have someone else help me think up a name because I might be too close to the subject matter or character to come up with it on my own. I like to use somewhat obscure names too. I have been known to make them up too.
Novel titles are the same. Sometimes I know what it should be before I know what the story is going to be. Other times I will halfway through a story before I write a line of text and know that’s what the title needs to be. I am a little pickier about my titles than my names, which is saying something. I need the title to eye catching.

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Don’t give up. Don’t worry about what anyone will think of your work. Don’t worry about what genre it will fall into or wht agent to send it to or whether you should indie publish or not. Just write that book and get it down on paper. Spelling, punctuation, grammar, those are things that you worry about in edits. Not when you’re writing. My first drafts are crap. That’s how they are supposed to be.
