It's A New Name For Author Katia Lief!

We had an office visit on Monday from the lovely and talented author Katia Lief, who's writing under her real name for the first time (her pseudonyms include Katia Spiegelman and Kate Pepper).

Katia just happens to live one block away from the RT offices, so she stopped by with copies of her October and November book covers for her new suspense novels. (Katia also cat-sits our office visiting feline, Dylan, who was featured in our May issue, but that's another story.)

October's book is You Are Next, in which former detective Karin Schaeffer learns the madman who destroyed her family has escaped from prison. November's Next Time You See Me has Karin tracking down her husband, who vanishes after his parents are slain.

Look for a two-fer giveaway from Katia in the October issue of RT: Five packages of Next Time You See Me and You Are Next, autographed by the author! Also, Katia and her video-editor husband have created a trailer for her books. Check it out at
