New Novel from Sierra Kay ‘From Behind the Curtain’ releasing this month
There is a new novel coming out from author Sierra Kay, the new suspense novel named “From Behind the Curtain” is set to release later this August. Kay commented on her new book saying, “In ‘From Behind the Curtain’, I love how the characters change throughout the novel, and how our perception of them changes. You have characters that are doing the best they can with the hand they’ve been dealt. Some do better than others, but that’s all any of us can do. It’s about survival. Personally, I’d like to think I would react differently in some of these situations, but the truth is do you really know until life tests you.”
Kay’s From Behind The Curtain is a suspense fiction, in which the reader will encounter the story of Dee, who spent most of her life on welfare, watching her often-absent father struggle with addiction and lately, watching her mother’s battle with cancer. Dee had paid her dues. When her Auntie M brought her to live “in Atlanta, things were supposed to get better. In Atlanta, Dee had new clothes, a full fridge, and her own bedroom,” according to the press-release sent out today, announcing the book’s release date.
However, she soon realized there were other issues. The most important was the apparent overdose of Pastor Clifton, her aunt’s best friend and secret love. Pastor Clifton was trying to clean up the neighborhood. So how did he end up slumped over his desk—dead? And why, in a church full of gossips, was no one saying a word?
In Dee’s world, that level of power wasn’t unheard of. But here, it was difficult to distinguish the players and, more importantly, who was managing them from behind the curtain. Kay’s love of the written word was predestined as a child. Her mother, concerned with the state of the public education system in Chicago, encouraged her to read anything that she could get her hands on, including the spelling bee word list that appeared in the Chicago Tribune each year. Kay was weaned on books like, Anne of the Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery and A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. However, her favorite book growing up was, Aesop’s Fables.
In 2011, Sierra Kay won a Nuyorican Poets Cafe Short Story Slam in New York. In the fall of 2011, Kay released her first novel Unhinged, in which deception, friendship and betrayal took center stage.
