D A Bale Bio:


Since her earliest remembrances, Ms. Bale has used the written word to communicate images and feelings, to entertain and inspire.  In her youth, she won numerous writing awards and spent countless hours entertaining family and friends with stories and plays she’d written using her parents old typewriter.  Then life happened.


Through a series of personal tragedies, she once again picked up writing as a means of catharsis.  This led to the introduction of a very special writers group with whom she continues to this day.  


With the Midwest as an excellent origin for reaching either U.S. coast in a matter of hours, Bale has taken advantage of her centralized location.  As a government relations liaison, she’s been in demand along both western and eastern corridors, specifically taking in the New York and D.C. scenes.


Politics aside, her favorite haunt is the State of Alaska, with cold weather and snow and the uncommonly common Husky.  Her love of weather plays into most of her writing and helps to set various scenes.


Though fantasy and the classics are her favorites for reading pleasure, Bale is comfortable writing in many genres.  She believes wholeheartedly that good character development is just as important as spinning a solid storyline.  Therefore, even the fast-paced thriller reader deserves to know what makes a character tick.  Tragedy and foibles of the human condition are common among her characters to give them a deeper semblance of reality.


Ms. Bale currently has nine novels in various genres and stages of completion with one thriller coming soon, Running into the Darkness, a finalist in the KWA Scene of the Crime contest.  She continues to make her home in the Midwest and can be reached at  or via her blog at .




“I never intended to kill the President.  As a doctor, I swore an oath to protect life – not take it.  But that was before I met him.”


Second year resident, Dr. Samantha Bartlett, is swept from the frigid New York winter to once again confront the sting of death back home – and face those she left behind.  But she’s not alone.  A strange man she dubs Shades haunts her every step as she seeks answers to the inferno which claimed her grandmother, an eerie reminder of her parents’ deaths.  The secrets Samantha uncovers forever changes her image of those she only thought she knew.  


Confronted by Shades, Samantha joins a secret underworld known only as the Elite, where a web of power and control is woven deep within governments worldwide.  Their sights are set on the power structure of the United States, and Samantha becomes the unlikely key to infiltrating the White House at its most intimate levels.


The quest for blood threatens to destroy Samantha.  From the darkness there is no escape.
