About Sarah WaterRaven

Sarah WaterRaven was born in Plantation, Florida in 1983. Ruled by an overpowering imagination, when she is not writing she is often drawing, painting or pretending to play the violin—she wishes she could fiddle. Forever fuelled by copious amounts of espresso and tea, she practices yoga and cycles whenever she can.

She also spends a lot of time with her horse and dogs and is frequently seen wandering around the woods on horseback or on foot. She has a passion for animal rights and will always be an environmentalist at heart.

Sarah WaterRaven currently lives in Ontario, Canada with plans to travel the world.

In her debut as an author, Sarah WaterRaven tells the story of a quirky, but insightful detective and his brooding, but loyal assistant. After they meet with the detective's long lost niece, they take on one of the most difficult case of the detective's career yet. Will they get to the bottom of the strange occurrences at their client's house? Will the Detective's niece be able to break through her uncle's assistant's icy persona? Where did all these unusual creatures come from anyway? Find the answers to all these questions and more in "Detective Docherty and the Daemon's Tears."

Review by: genghis galahad on Nov. 08, 2012 :
A fantastic and fantastical read that sublimely ushers the reader into a world of crime mystery juxtaposed with high fantasy. It recalls to mind the visionary Mike Mignola's Hellboy graphic novel series and now films, simply from its awesome premise! In additon to a review on barnes and noble placing it in the company of JK Rowling's Harry Potter, legendary writer Alan Moore's Top Ten, and Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell written in clear prose and wonderful pace, and you have Detective Docherty and the Demon's Tears. Read it and you will believe

Review by: genghis galahad on Nov. 08, 2012 :
Sarah WaterRaven has written a fine and amazing novel that creates a wondrous world of fantasy that is enmeshed in the real world much as JK Rowling juxtaposes the muggle world with the world of magic in her Potter books. It deserves to be in the company of fantastic and fantastical books as Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell if nothing else than for it's placement of magic in the everyday, much like Alan Moore, the great graphic novel writer, created Top Ten and it's police force in a city of heroes. I loved the premise of a detective dealing with the world of fantasy. It's so rich in potential and the pacing is inviting and none too heavy. Now, if I saw Neil Gaiman walking down the street, I would run up to him and tell him, "you MUST read this!"

Detective Docherty is an absorbing read about a slice of life in a world where fantasy meets the mundane. With its memorable characters, odd mysteries, and fantastical creatures, it is an enjoyable read that paints a vibrant world to explore. Definately worth a read.
