A LITTLE ABOUT GEN BAILEY, the
leading voice in American Indian romance.

novels of that time," says Gen, "did not paint a true picture of the

Sarah during her journey. Can the two find a common bond among such
Seneca Surrender is a tale with true-fold characters that open up their
heart, emitting real emotions. Sarah and White Thunder live up to the
happenings around them and try to accept things while enduring hardships. I
enjoyed their conversation, their cultures, even though separate, and how
they reached out to each other. With tormented souls, they do everything to
find a way to become one. The secondary characters enhance the story making
it even more realistic. Karen Kay writes a story enabling the reader to feel
the pain, agony, anguish, peril, and racism that goes much deeper, within
the characters, of some of the people, in the story, to make this read
remarkably good. She pens an outstanding extraordinary story beyond words.

Gen Bailey is a new pseudonym for author, Karen Kay. This is a
different sort of book for me. Although it is strictly in
American genre, it is a faster paced book than what I usually write. I
hope you will enjoy it and the new name.
