Twain Harte Resident Authors First Book

Sponsored by:

After three and a half years in the works, a Twain Harte resident is finally publishing her first book.

Christine Reber (C.M. Reber) was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Twenty-six year old Reber has lived in the Motherlode since second grade and has taken an interest in reading books and writing for as long as she can remember.

“Chosen”; Book One in the Journey to Ysryiia, is the first in a series of Fantasy novels for young adults.

Story Overview: 

Seventeen year old Katie watched the tragic murder of her father when she was a child. Now a Junior in high school, she has only to worry about the troubles of homework and fitting in. But when she starts having strange, frightening nightmares featuring her long-lost father as the main star, the normal life she has fought to maintain begins to slowly unravel. Suddenly, she finds herself struggling to come to grips with both her heartbreaking past and the new questions that her nightmares have brought to the surface.

While searching for the answers to the daunting mystery of her dreams, a random accident sends her life spinning out of control. Without warning, the teenage girl from Brooklyn finds herself in the world of Ýsryiia –known only to an unlucky few –filled with magic, mystery, and a terrible secret.

“Chosen” is available at Mountain Bookshop in Sonora and information can also be found on her website

Reber will also be attending several ‘meet the author’ events over the next couple of months, where she will personally sign her book.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
