Meet Guest Author Cheri Vause


Greetings Book Ape:

Portrait 5I’ve had many occupations throughout the years, but my favorite has been as a theology teacher for more than twenty years. Of course, the immersion into the mystical nature of the universe had definitely informed my writing. As an avid reader, as well as being a writer, I’m drawn to original stories, stories that have an intense atmosphere, characters that are drawn so vividly you feel you know them, and a hero that is truly a heroic person. I like my protagonists to be humble, to have feelings that run so deeply within them that they feel too much.

In my latest novel, The Truth and Nothing but Lies, the mystery not only lies within the events being investigated, but also within my hero. Too often today we find such flawed protagonists that you don’t like them. Sometimes they even make you angry and repulsed by their antics. I want my readers to become friends with my hero, invite them into their homes, over and over again.

The Truth and Nothing but Lies



“He pulled alongside an Astoria PD prowler and stared at the devastated site. The building of the former Women’s Clinic was scattered everywhere across the parking lot and into the street. He carefully stepped through the obliteration, assessing the damage and the proficiency of the bomber…”

TTanbLSpecial Agent in Charge, Grantham “Grant” Greene has become disillusioned with his job and his role within the FBI, despite being promoted due to his intuitive investigative skills. Working out of the Portland office, he’s charged with leading the hunt for a bomber who seems to be targeting Women’s clinics in Oregon and Washington. With pressures from his boss and his ambitious father, Grant becomes even more discouraged as he works his way through the mire of evidence. His discovery of the actions of a beautiful woman, who has supposedly committed suicide, leads him to believe that, alongside the bombings, he may also be investigating a murder. 

With the media second-guessing the case and the potential for a nationwide political scandal, Grant has just one weekend to uncover the identity of the bomber and find out the truth about the missing beauty and her connection with the crime. As he delves deeper, and tragedy strikes, Grant starts to question his views and wonder if it’s possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never even met.
