Authorial Intrusion - C. Lee McKenzie

It is with extra-special delight that I introduce to you C. Lee McKenzie today on Authorial Intrusion. Lee is not just a fellow debut author, she has been one of my critique partners for several years. After sharing many ups and downs on our paths toward publication, we now share a debut year. I, for one, could not be more thrilled.

It was my pleasure to read Lee’s YA novel, SLIDING ON THE EDGE, in manuscript form. I’m proud to have played a small part in its success, and there is no doubt in my mind that Lee’s editorial insights helped make my novel better.

Alone and broke, Shawna Stone feels she has nothing left to live for. Her daily life is a struggle to survive … and now she is a heartbeat away from giving up. Kay Stone is the grandmother Shawna has never known, and at sixty-four, Kay too feels she has is little left worth fighting for. When the two are thrown together, they circle each other in a crucible of secrets and distrust until saving a doomed horse unites them and gives each a reason to live.
