Pamela Beason lives in the Pacific Northwest, where she writes novels and screenplays and works as a private investigator. When she's not on the job, she explores the natural world on foot or cross-country skis, in her kayak, or underwater scuba diving. She believes that drifting through life is not enough; you have to live it.
Pam is the author of the Neema Mysteries (The Only Witness and The Only Clue); the Summer Westin Mysteries (Endangered, Bear Bait, and Undercurrents); romantic suspense novels Shaken and Call of the Jaguar, and nonfiction titles Save Your Money, Your Sanity, and Our Planet and So You Want to be a PI? She is currently finishing a new YA adventure and a sequel to Shaken.
Pam’s writing has won multiple awards, including the Chanticleer Grand Prize and the Daphne du Maurier Award.
Lawrence masterfully delves into this complex subject with his fast-paced and highly entertaining novel. Readers will be left with the feeling of “OMG, this could really happen!” or “Could this be happening now – right under our noses?”
When he isn’t writing, Lawrence enjoys cooking good food and drinking rich red wine. Traveling, reading, running (so he can enjoy the aforementioned food and wine), and golf can sometime divert him from his writing. He and his lovely wife, Diana, live in beautiful North Vancouver, Canada.
Lawrence is currently working on Seed of Control, the sequel to Dark Seed. To learn more, or to purchase Dark Seed, please visit: www.lawrenceverigin.com

"Great job on the review! You nailed it. Again, thank you for going the extra mile. Chanticleer is a very valuable resource for writers, particularly Indie writers and I wish you guys continued success moving forward."
Chanticleer's review is compelling. It got my attention and is a game-changer for The Prodigal by Michael Hurley.
Thank you for your team's review of Measure of Danger. I was really impressed by the detail and particularly on how many of the plot dots were connected. I appreciate the review, the additional postings of it everywhere. I look forward to continuing the relationship with CBR. Thank you!
Chanticleer's review of APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur was a key component of its successful launch. I would recommend CBR to authors who are passionate about their craft.
