Goodreads Author

in Calgary, Canada


Member Since
January 2009

Born in Calgary, Canada, Marise Ghorayeb traveled extensively during her childhood. She enjoyed the privilege of visiting countries that included Japan, Egypt, and Australia among others. These travels were a part of the reason she became an author. A vivid imagination is required when there are no friends around and all available television is in foreign languages. As an adult with an engineering career, Marise Ghorayeb has settled in Houston, Texas with her beloved dog. Her professional knowledge empowers her to add a layer of reality and depth to the fantasy and science fiction tales she loves to weave.

History of the Time Laws Ch 1 - 3 (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
3 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:27PM
Description: Fifteen-year-old Elizabeth is part of a select group of magic-wielding time travelers. However when the rules that govern time-travel loss effect, chaos ensues and it is up to her to make things right again. As her enemies and allies scramble back and forth through the timeline to sway a millenniums-old war in their favor, her personal past and memory changes. Elizabeth was raised by her oldest brother, Luke, after their parents passed away two years ago, in 1979. She is a tough girl, capable of handling herself any kind of fight: fist, knife or magical. Or is she? Are her parents still alive? Does she still live on Earth or did the war force her and her older brother, Mark, to take refuge on an alien planet? If Elizabeth can’t make sense of out of mayhem, the universe and everyone she loves will be destroyed.

message 1: by P.J.

P.J. Kelley Hi Marise,

I wrote a new book, and whatever you could do to help me would be greatly appreciated. I do think you might enjoy the book, and this is a very rare promotion from me.

I am sending this message to all my goodreads friends.

My new book is free tomorrow on Amazon (5/9/2015).

If you miss the free day, email me and I will send in any format.

You would be doing me a huge favor if you downloaded it and helped send it to the top of the free list for the day.

As an Indie writer, this is the best form of promotion I have.

The book is short, but it took me a couple of years to write, believe it or not, so I do not consider this request spam. I don't like everything I write, but I like this book, so am making this extra effort to promote it.

Also, if you do read the book, provide some honest input (I can take it) and pass the link along to your friends if you are willing.

Free 5-9-2015
Just published won't be free again.

Quick and the Grateful Undead by P.J. Kelley
