Info about the book being launched:
Grayling Cross by Gayleen Froese
Psychic Anna Gareau and public relations expert Collie Kostyna keep things quiet for local magicians and for their biggest client, an underground supernatural society known as the Embassy. In Grayling Cross, an investigator arrives in town on the trail of a missing teenage psychic, and hires Anna and Collie to be his liaisons to the local magic community. Troublingly, though, he turns out to have a knack for suppressing magic, leaving magicians powerless and vulnerable. And when an Embassy employee is found murdered in a house nobody should have been able to enter, with a weapon that never should have killed him, suspicion naturally falls upon Anna and Collie’s new client. The multi-talented Gayleen Froese is a novelist, musician, and communications professional. Having lived in Saskatoon, Toronto, and Prince Albert, she now resides in Edmonton's historic Alberta Avenue district. She has also worked as a radio writer and talk show host, an advertising creative director, and a communications officer. Froese was featured on Canadian Learning Television's A Total Write Off, and was the overall winner of BookTelevision's 3-Day Novel Contest, filmed over three days in 2007 at an Edmonton Chapters bookstore. She was also shortlisted in the overall 2007 International Three-Day Novel Contest. Her non-fiction and humour writing has appeared in publications including SEE Magazine, The Rat Creek Press, and The Session. Gayleen Froese's first novel, Touch, is part of the NeWest Nunatak First Fiction Series. The book’s sequel, Grayling Cross, will be released by NeWest in March 2011.
