Heather Paye, Author


Welcome to VBT - Writers on the Move August tour. It’s my pleasure to host the youngest member of our group, Heather Paye. At only 15-years-old, Heather is a published author. It’s refreshing to see a young lady with great determination and confidence.

Lets start with a synopsis of Heather’s book, A Gift from Above.

Celia Meyers gets everything that she wants, but when she requests a sibling and gets it, it's not all that she expected at all. Her parents ignore her, threaten to send her to a "summer camp" and the worst possible things happen to her all of the time. Finally she can't take it anymore, so she confides in her best friend Tommy Hanson, about searching for her long lost nanny Milicent Potter. But when she finds Millie, she learns some disturbing facts that she's not quite sure what to do with.

Celia visits with Tommy and discovers his true feelings towards her. At the ending Celia becomes somewhat of a hero as she saves a young boy in a car accident.

The book starts out when she is 8 and progresses through her life until she is 16.

And now for a wonderful review:

5.0 out of 5 stars A GIFT FROM ABOVE BY H. C. PAYE, April 19, 2009
By Joyce l. Paclik (bellevilleil)

IN READING THIS BOOK IT WAS VERY INTERESTING. IT WAS HARD TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN WITHOUT PROCEEDING FURTHER. I FOUND THIS READING MATERIAL VERY CLOSE TO THE HEART READING. IT IS A BOOK I WOULD RECOMMEND FOR ALL THE GENERAL PUBLIC. THIS YOUNG WRITER I FEEL WILL GO VERY FAR IN WRITING MORE BOOKS IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

You can get your copy of A Gift From Above at:

Amazon


Talk to you soon,
Karen Cioffi

Great feature. Hey Karen, glad you found my new blog. Ever since the Google Nazis zapped my blogspot.com blogs and smushed my old gmail account I have been unable to log onto or post anything on the VBT site. Please send me a new invitation too join and I will sign back up under my new ID.

Thanks to The Old Silly, Nancy, and Vivian for stopping by, and thank you Karen for hosting me. I LOVE the post!

Nancy - Readers keep telling me their kids enjoyed reading it, so I assume it is good for middle grade readers. I think it's because it rings true with a lot of siblings, it's never what you expect, you know?

Vivian - Thank you, so far the responses have been great, I do hope as well, that it takes off even more!
