C.A. Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies: PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends), THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology), and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that she’s interested in learning more about herself, and then creates lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it. Her stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual content, and she abhors depressing endings… but they’re not all kittens and rainbows either! She also listens to and reviews audiobooks on her website, here on Goodreads, on Instagram, and on her podcast, Clean Audi ...more

Murder at Melrose Court by Karen Baugh Menuhin

The story was more or less what it was billed to be: a stereotypical murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie. I am not a huge Christie fan, but the description made me think it would be more tongue-in-cheek than it turned out to be. Instead, I ...more

“Polly Jefferson rolled off her left arm, which had gone numb from the full weight of her body for the previous several hours that she had been asleep. She tapped her fingers on her leg, feeling the pins and needles, and looked at the clock, which blinked 6:30 in lurid red LCD. Instinctively she craned her head towards the other side of the bed, but she knew already what she would find there. The sheets were rumpled but empty and cold, and her husband’s briefcase, which had been leaning against the dresser the night before, was gone. He had already left for London.”
C.A. Gray, Intangible

“One thing I had to give Liam: he never seemed to get that self-complacent air that most attractive men get when they find themselves admired. I’m not sure he even noticed. “But there might be one thing we can do as a potential safeguard, just in case Halpert’s challenge is answered…” Liam went on, as if the interruption hadn’t happened. “Program them with a moral code.”
C.A. Gray, Uncanny Valley

“Evil has a way of cheating even its friends.”

“Yet people see only what they expect to see, and will search for evidence to support what they already believe. It is a rare person indeed who is humble enough to admit that he has been wrong.”
C.A. Gray, Intangible

“The Watchers have been protecting you to the best of our ability all your life, and have been watching for your birth for approximately 1500 years." Then he added pleasantly, "Would you like some cocoa?”

“Kane pulled a key from a piece of thread around his neck that looked just like the skeleton key Gerald had given Peter the night before, and slid it into the keyhole. "Welcome," said Kane dramatically, as he pushed the doors open, "to the complete and secret history of the Watchers.”
C.A. Gray, Intangible

“You don't know what it's been like all these years, seeing things that are invisible to everybody else. I knew I wasn't crazy, I knew it, but the rest of the world thought I was, and after a while even I started to wonder, you know?”
C.A. Gray, Intangible

“My name is Kane," he said finally, "and I am the youngest member ever to be inducted into the secret organization known as the Watchers. This," he gestured to the hall around them, "is what we call the Commuter Station. It is the second basement of the Watcher Castle." "Watchers?" said Lily. "What are you watching for?" Kane's mouth stretched into a bitter, tight-lipped smile and his eyes narrowed in Peter's direction. "Him.”
