R.A. Giggie

Author R.A. Giggieabout this book: Stella's Plea deals with the abduction of a deaf child, Alexis, who disappears from the local playground. Not only is she deaf, but a near-fatal illness has left her mute as well. Alexis is only three, and innocent as any children her age. She wanders off into the woods after being lured by a puppy. Her mother searches for her frantically, but to no avail. Authorities are called in, but there is no trace of her. Will they find her? Alive?

5-Star review by J. McGowan: The characters, dialogue and story line were excellent and it is difficult to believe this is a "first" novel. A heart rending kidnapping of a deaf child, mystery, faith in God, redemption, love and family - and a satisfying ending!

5-Star review by author Sarah Butland: A tale of raw emotion, triumph and desperation. R.A. Giggie writes this sordid tale so beautifully it makes the reader appreciate their own family just a bit more.

5-Star review by Thomas Waters: Move over Mary Higgins Clark, Stella's Plea is suspense and drama with a twist. Giggie weaves her story line and characters together in a way too powerful to put down, and of course there is a twist. The real story is about another ransom paid.

The inspiration for this book came to me as I took the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) back in 2010. I don't plot, I simply write by the seat of my pants. Along the way, I fell in love with the characters, and decided to do something with it. I entered it in a publishing contest twice, it made the top of the shortlist the second time. For months afterward, I worked with an editor, and when she told me it was ready, a friend formatted it as an eBook, and another designed the cover. In November 2013, I published it on Amazon.

The biggest lesson I learned through all this was how much work is involved, even if I wrote about a topic I was familiar with. It's so much more than that and it helped me appreciate authors and see them in a totally different light.

I truly hope you will enjoy this book. It is my first novel and I am now working on a second one, hoping to have it out by Spring 2014.
