5-star review of The Orderly by Pamela Z. Crutcher

Bio

I worked as a journalist for over a decade before launching the imprint, Bee Books, in September 2018 and publishing my first novel, The Orderly; a dark love story. In December 2018, I published the non-fiction book,  A Farmer’s Guide to Climate Disruption. My second novel, For the Birds, published in February 2020, is the first of many climate-smart romances to be published under the pen name Tara L. Roí. I am currently at work on Tara’s next novel.
