A DAUGHTER IS GIVEN Except for her mother in a mental institution, the President of the United States, KC Kingsley, was the only person who knew that Katherine Ross was his biological daughter. The baby girl, crying and squirming, came from the womb to the guilt ridden mother who denied and rejected her. Katherine was given to her mother’s husband, James Ross, at the same moment her mother took the terror of her seduction, and denial of her baby, to the darkest places of her mind. At the age of seventeen, Katherine was cast into the Kingsley family by the sudden death of James Ross. Katherine and her mother are constant threats to Kingsley’s administration and marriage. His juggling act crumbled when his son fell in love with Katherine. Julianne Kingsley, turned her back on the president and became the champion of Katherine and her mother. Set in Washington D.C and Maryland—1950’s—when sexual misconduct could bring a politician down.

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
