C.C.Cole is an author from rural Mississippi. Schooled in medicine, she lives a suburban life with her family. Following her sister's death in a domestic violence incident, she began writing as a creative outlet.

Her debut novel is The First Book of the Gastar Series "Act of Redemption," a dark fantasy story about a heroine with a dark past who protects the people of the city of Gastar and seeks to re-claim her soul. It has been listed as Best Independent Novel on Goodreads and the lead character Shevata won an action heroine poll.

Book Two of the Gastar Series, "Children of Discord," was published in 2011, winning an NABE Pinnacle Achievement Award for fiction.

I've been posting a lot of my books I've read to my blog and need to post them here as well. Never enough time. I looked at my reading list; I don't think I'll ever finish "Tender is the Night." I'd like to, but goodness, it makes me tired.

C.C. Cole Hello everybody, sorry to have been away from GR for so long. Time does fly, and I've been reading/writing/networking, and stumbling as I go. My 2nd book, "Children of Discord" is finally out and available on amazon. I'm looking forward to getting back to Goodreads and resume the networking with other authors. Some of you I see on FB. Still reading your books, and am enjoying them very much. Plan to post as I finish...but time does go fast!! Hope all is well with all of you.
