Author Biography

C.A. Gray is a YA and children's book author. Her stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual content, and she abhors depressing endings. She also listens to and reviews audiobooks on her website, Goodreads, Instagram, and on her podcast, Clean Audiobook Reviews, where she also occasionally interviews other authors.

By day, C.A. Gray practices naturopathic medicine, podcasts, and writes medical non-fiction under her maiden name (Dr. Lauren Deville). She lives in Tucson, AZ with her husband Frank, and together they maintain an occasionally contentious film review blog (under her real name: Lauren Baden.) In her spare time, she creates whatever meals or crafts she found most recently on Pinterest, drinks lots of coffee and occasional wine, works out, makes jewelry and sells it on Etsy, and studies the Bible—about half of the podcasts on Christian Natural Health are scripture meditations.

The Atlantis Bloodline by C.A. Gray is an interesting narrative that combines elements of urban fantasy with mythology and romance to create an exciting reading experience. Ada Edwards can’t believe that Kaison Hughes, the attractive lead singer in one of the most adored bands in the world, shows an interest in her. She finds him irresistible even if there are glaring signs that he has a secret. What she doesn’t know is that Kai is not who he seems and that he is a member of a powerful organization and on a mission to bring her to the ranks of descendants of Atlantis. Ada is the only existing link to a lost line and a coveted gem. But Kai is falling in love and there is more at stake, including his sister’s freedom and his fame.

This is a highly imaginative story with deep layers in the plot. When the story starts, readers feel they are encountering normal characters, but as it progresses, new depths are uncovered and deeper dimensions of the characters are explored. It is not an ordinary story, and I enjoyed how C.A. Gray moves from the simplicity of the ordinary lives of the characters to the deeper, magical world into which their roots are planted. The prose is gorgeous, the overall writing enjoyable, and the setting filled with magical elements. The author did a wonderful job in writing about the romance and the twist is what many readers won’t see coming. The Atlantis Bloodline is a fascinating story with strong hints of mythology, a page-turner from a great storyteller.
