DBF_7559ABOUT KARELIA STETZ-WATERS

Karelia is author of The Admirer, The Purveyor, Forgive Me if I Told You This Before, and Something True. She teaches at a rural community college which  provides ample inspiration for writing, as the college attracts all walks of life, from Sudanese refugees to fresh-out-of-the-closet drag queens. Her interests include large snakes, container ships, corn mazes, popular science books on neurology, and any roadside attraction that purports to have the world’s largest ball of twine. She has a BA from Smith College in Comparative Literature and an MA in English from the University of Oregon. Other formative experiences include a childhood spent roaming the Oregon woods and several years spent exploring Portland as a broke 20-something, which is the only way to experience Oregon’s coolest, weirdest city. She now lives with her wife, Fay, and her cat, Cyrus the Disemboweler.

Tate Grafton has a tough exterior, but underneath she’s kind, caring, and fiercely loyal. That’s why she first started working at Out in Portland Coffee-it was her way of repaying the shop’s owner for taking her in as a homeless teenager. Nine years later, the coffee shop is floundering and Tate feels like she’s letting life pass her by . . . until she shares an unforgettable night with a beautiful stranger. When the mysterious woman disappears the next morning, Tate doesn’t even know her name.

Laura Enfield was supposed to be in Portland for only a few days-just long enough to oversee a simple business deal before joining her conservative father on his political campaign. But when the closeted Laura romances an employee of the coffee shop her company is shutting down, things get suddenly complicated. Now, the lies she’s told for years are beginning to unravel, and her biggest secret is about to be exposed. Laura can’t stop thinking about the barista with the soulful eyes, but after a lifetime of deception, can she finally embrace something true?

  1. You can definitely see your skills within the article you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as
    you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your
    heart.

  2. Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?
    Thank you, I appreciate it!

  3. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone
    else encountering issues with your blog. It appears like some of the text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue
    with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Thanks

  4. I am really loving the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A number of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

  5. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
    a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the
    way!

  6. Hi Karelia. One of my Goodreads friends added The Purveyor so we can all add it to our To Read piles. Time to update your author photo on Goodreads. :)

  7. Karelia, I haven’t seen you in a few decades! We last visited Corvallis in 1982! However, we were on a tour in Russia and either skirted Karelia or maybe even went through a bit of it on our way to St. Petersburg. We were there in September, and it was open with trees. Pleasant. Very rural. A big sky. I am sure your parents are very proud of your accomplishments.

I'd love to hear from you. Click here!
