CN Bring gravitated toward military intrigue and suspense coming from a family whose members served in the Army and continues with relatives still serving. She earned her Associates Degree in Criminal Investigation for Private Investigation. Her extensive research and life experience lend an authentic feel to both her Celia Kelly Series (military / mystery / thriller), as well as the Jack Sleuth Series (crime / mystery) for youth.
Bring is an advocate for heroes and heroines in all walks of life. A big supporter of the military and our country’s Constitution, Wounded Warriors, Missing In America Project and Lupus Research. Bring is also a supporter of all who take the time to serve others in their communities and given professions. We can all make a difference one life at a time. There is a hero in all of us.
And now from the author herself:
The first time I thought about writing was several years ago. My husband was away from home for long periods of time with his job, when I first had the story idea come to me. After the kids went to bed, I would go to work on my story.
I have always loved mysteries and books about the military. My goal was to create a mystery / suspense novel that was engaging, inspiring, fun, and page turning without being offensive. The Pact originally started out self-published and then I signed with independent publisher Bad Day Books, an imprint of Assent Publishing in January. In March I signed the rest of the series with Assent.
I am inspired by those who serve our country and those within our borders who go above and beyond to keep us safe every day, those in the military, law enforcement, doctors, nurses and many others. My book was inspired by everyday people who are everyday heroes in extraordinary circumstances.
And about ‘The Pact’:
Commander Celia Kelly is a perceptive Naval Intelligence Officer rebuilding her life after the tragic death of her husband. The suspicious suicide of a fellow Officer has Celia questioning the mission she’s been assigned.
With the help of a one-of-a-kind secretary, by the book assistant, and a Navy SEAL, Kelly discovers she’s been set up. Digging relentlessly, nothing is as it seems.
Someone is after twenty million dollars that disappeared when Kelly’s husband died and now that someone is after her! With surprises at the turn of every page, the original characters and three dimensional plot lines keep the suspense going until the very end.
