Author Kami Boley was born in Houma, Louisiana, in 1973. At a young age, she discovered a deep passion for books and writing. As a young adult, she put that dream on hold to devote her time and energy to working as a cosmetologist so she could provide for a new love in her life, her daughter, Kirstie. Now that Kirstie is grown, Kami is ready to share her stories through Boley Books LLC.

My h…moreThe birth of The Disturbing History Saga is a long story . . . I will attempt to answer this question without becoming novel-length in of itself. My husband, my daughter, and I had a running tradition of spending Thanksgiving Day eating popcorn at the movies. On Thanksgiving in 2007, as the final credits rolled by after Beowulf, we discussed breaking from our routine and taking a drive to visit our relatives in Houma, Louisiana. We stopped by our home to gather a few overnight supplies and for a reason, unknown to me at that moment, I grabbed a 5-subject notebook and a brand new pen. Miles of haggard Louisiana roads quickly passed beneath our truck bringing us nearer to my hometown, stirring many memories of the past swirling all around me, prompting question after question. I began to transcribe both questions and answers as I interrogated the one person that puzzles me most in the world . . . my mother.

Ten years have zoomed by between then and now. This epic story told itself to me and I stole minutes from my busy existence as a mom, wife, and salon owner to write it down . . . and I am still struggling and writing. Along the way, I gained bits of momentum as the story became more insistent about coming into the world. As if by an invisible force, I was led to to the people that were instrumental in assisting me where I was weak, to provide me with a welcomed push and a clearer path to publication.

The Gator Leaves Nothing Behind was intended to be only one title in what will be known as The Disturbing History Saga, it became Part I and Part II because of its length. There are at least two more titles to be released in the next few years. I was told once that you know when a series is over when the characters stop talking to you . . . mine still have more to say.(less)

I live a simple, calm existence and prefer to keep my drama on the page and on the screen . . . where I can shut it off at will.(less)

The Stowaway

Wow, what a wild ride this was! This crime adventure novel was well written with a premise cleverly constructed in a way that feels fresh and thrilling!

I must admit this book is a bit gory and graphic in details and not for some of the delicate flowers out there. If you are like me and enjoyed Steve Cavanagh’s TH1RT3EN, then you will most certainly enjoy this one.

I hope to read

Dark Roads by Chevy Stevens
"This was the hardest book I've ever written and the one I am most proud of because it took me the longest to find. Plus, I love Wolf, and if there is ever a movie made, I can't wait to meet him in real life. Paws crossed. "

Stephen King
“Homesickness is not always a vague, nostalgic, almost beautiful emotion, although that is somehow the way we always seem to picture it in our mind. It can be a terribly keen blade, not just a sickness in metaphor but in fact as well. It can change the way one looks at the world; the faces one sees in the street look not just indifferent but ugly... perhaps even malignant. Homesickness is a real sickness--the ache of the uprooted plant.”
Stephen King, The Breathing Method
