I know what you did this summer KARY RADER!

Still asking my writer friends what they’ve been doing while not visiting me! Sniff. Kary Rader is a new Boroughs Publishing author who already has some writing street cred! Welcome, Kary!

Ciar: What’s the best part of this summer so far and have you gone anywhere special or had a stay-cation? 

Kary: Took my three kids to their first concert—Big Time Rush and Victoria Justice. It was great fun to see my little guys dancing and singing to the songs they knew.BTR Kids1

Ciar: Okay, I’m officially old, because I’ve never heard of either of them. But the kids, cuteness overload! What’s your latest release and what are you working on? 

Kary: My latest release is a contemporary New Adult with strong romantic elements titled A Taylor-Made Life. It’s the story of my heart born out of emotions I experienced five years ago when my husband battled stage IV melanoma.


I’m working on two new adult fantasy romances just picked up by Boroughs. The first of the two, The Pirate Princess, will release sometime early next year.

 Ciar: What is your favorite place online to play? The first spot you go look at in the morning?

Kary: Usually Facebook and Goodreads.

Ciar: Wow, these are some reviews! I’ll share some with our visitors!

About A Taylor-Made Life
Five years ago while I was pregnant with my youngest child, my husband was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma cancer. It was a difficult and emotional time in our lives. He’s now well and cancer free, but last year when a friend’s daughter was diagnosed with cancer, all those emotions came flooding back. A Taylor-Made Life is the result of those emotions. It’s a special story looking for a home in the hearts of readers. I pray you give the characters an opportunity to touch you.

“A Taylor-Made Life is one of the best books I’ve read this year and it’s not one I’ll soon forget… Taylor and Gavin stole my heart and my breath, and I wasn’t ready to let them go.” – Nikki Barrett, Storm Goddess Book Reviews 

“Beautifully written, and I would dare anyone not to cry….. Gavin and Taylor have such depth and emotion, it’s hard not to fall in love with them. These two characters will remain in my memory forever.” – Melissa Limoges, Insert Clever Quip Here Book Reviews 

“6 Stars, 2 full boxes of Kleenex…Beautiful!” – a.c. Mason, bestselling author

“Kary Rader is a wonderful new voice in New Adult fiction. Taylor-Made is a must-read.”– Jill Limber, author and editor, Boroughs Publishing Group 

They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.

Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn’t find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.

Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he’s gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he’s matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.

When it’s discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor’s mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he’ll never know to a girl he just met.
