S.R.Claridge, nominated for the 2010 Molly Award, 2013 Pushcart Prize and awarded the 2011 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Pen Award, writes full-time and lives in Colorado. She loves autumn, moonlight and Grey Goose martinis with bleu cheese or jalapeno stuffed olives. She believes Friday nights are for indulging in Mexican food and margaritas and Sunday mornings warrant an extra-spicy Bloody Mary. Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri and earning her BA in Psychology from the University of Missouri, Columbia, S.R.Claridge is a mixture of mid-western family values and western wild nights. She loves Jesus, believes in the power of prayer, in the freedom of forgiveness and that life is a gift that should be enjoyed to the fullest. With a background in theatre, S.R.Claridge creates characters with dramatic flair and is known for her intense plot twists and engaging humor. S.R.Claridge would rather walk dangerously where there’s a view than sit in idle safety and let life pass her by. Her spirited outlook comes shining through in her novels, as she takes readers to the edge of their seats with bone-chilling suspense.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on the sequel to House of Lies and on another stand-alone suspense novel.
Other than the Just Call Me Angel series, what novels have you written?
No Easy Way was my debut romantic suspense novel. House of Lies is a political suspense novel. The Candy Shop is a suspense thriller, and then I have one short story suspense book out called Petals of Blood.
One decision can change everything. One decision can cost everything. And the worst part is there’s no turning back. Caught between an ugly truth she doesn’t want to face and a haunting reality to which she feels drawn, Kira must learn to trust her instincts and take life at The Candy Shop one bite size piece at a time.
Shot, kidnapped, drugged and betrayed, Angel must put her personal feelings aside to uncover the truth, reveal the lies and intervene before it is too late. The plot thickens when unlikely paths collide and lines of loyalty blur into a muddle of mafia mayhem; where being in the right place at the wrong time might just be an intervention of the Divine.
Racing to piece together a family secret before anyone else dies, private investigator, Stephen Braznovich, finds himself trapped between white lies and dark lusts in a twisted tale where all roads point to one simple truth...there is No Easy Way.
Skylar Wilson fights to save her sister from a deadly cult that stretches far beyond its pseudo-evangelical veil, penetrating the upper echelon of the United States government and pushing a lethal international agenda.
Tempers flare and bullets fly as the
lines of family loyalty blur into a melting pot
of Mafia destruction, where Angel must
face the suffocating reality that
her only hope of staying alive is in
