Black Rose Writing
Luke and Allie are a young, newly-married couple living in the suburbs of Colorado, about to start a family together and with what most would describe as a perfect life. They are so much in love with each other and this new life they have begun, that they are clearly under the impression that nothing can tarnish this wonderful world they live in. Unbeknownst to Luke and Allie, an intruder is about to make their perfect little world come crashing down around them. Not only does evil touch them but in fact, it infiltrates their lives.
Kathy Marvel lives in Colorado with her husband and two sons. She is a first grade teacher and has taught for the past nineteen years. She spends her free time writing, running, camping, and watching the many sporting events that her sons are involved in. She is hopeful that her passion for writing is contagious and is passed on to her own kids as well as every child that comes through her classroom doors.
"The Velvet Touch is a superb must-read! You can feel the heart wrenching loss of security coming through the pages and the complete helplessness felt at this invasion of privacy during a most cherished and intimate time in the lives of Luke and Allie. I couldn’t put the book down; I had to find out what happened next." Goodreads review
Kathy Marvel completely captured the emotions and feelings of Luke and Allie and the purely psychotic thinking of Velvet. I felt every emotion and fear that encompassed them throughout their ordeal and was actually rooting for the antagonist’s death in the end. Amazon review
