Cy Wyss writes mysteries, including the popular series Eyeshine, about a photojournalist who turns into a cat nightly. Cy studied mathematics and English literature, eventually gaining her PhD in Computer Science. In her daily life she writes a ton of SQL, which could be seen as poetry -- of a sort. Cy jealously guards writing time and has been self-published since 2012.

Silent Voices by Fran Lewis




Driving down a rocky road I saw the overgrown grass, weeds, and poison ivy overtaking the outer perimeter of the bushes.

I started Blackquest 40 before work one morning, expecting to get through maybe 50 pages. Instead, two and a half hours later, I’d read the whole thing and was late. I can’t rave enough about this book. I’d give it six stars out of five if I could.
