Kaira discovered the joy of reading and writing at a young age. In third grade, the assignment was to write a letter to a person who you wanted to be when you grew up. She wrote to Robert McCloskey, author of her favorite books, Make Way for Ducklings and Blueberries for Sal. Unfortunately, Mr. McCloskey wrote back that he was an illustrator, but did wish her good luck.

A locked-room thriller set in a house perched on a cliff along the Oregon Coast, you'll race through the pages to discover every dark secret and shocking twist. I loved it."
We're All Lying (2023)
Marie Still
"Full of twists and turns, We're All Lying lives up to its title and then some. This debut is a domestic thriller with plenty of surprises, keeping you guessing all the way through to the shocking end. I loved it."
The Family Bones (2023)
Elle Marr
"Smart, razor sharp, and shocking, The Family Bones will keep you up late with all the lights on. A family of psychopaths trapped by bad weather at an isolated retreat - what could possibly go wrong? With dual story lines racing toward a chilling climax, The Family Bones is a tense, must-read thriller."
The Vicious Circle (2022)
Katherine St John
"The Vicious Circle is a chilling immersion into a disturbing cult disguised as a wellness center tucked away in a secluded jungle.... A haunting, gripping novel."
The Butcher and the Wren (2022)
Alaina Urquhart
"The Butcher and the Wren is perfect for fans of Dexter. Pitting a brutal serial killer against a determined medical examiner, the story is a pulsepounding race against time. And the details the author weaves in due to her unique background as an autopsy tech heighten the realism and the suspense. Fans of Morbid will love the host's debut novel."
All the Dirty Secrets (2022)
Aggie Blum Thompson
"All the Dirty Secrets will have you racing to the end. This tale was so chillingly real it could have been ripped from the headlines. I loved it!"
