Fall Down Ten Times. Tell the truth once.

From the hand of an award-winning short fiction writer comes a story of motherhood, modern challenges, and a search for the truth.

57-year-old Catherine Keely’s world has been ripped apart by grief.

Independent, insightful, and intelligent – she is also the only person who finds her daughter’s death suspicious. Susie fell from a balcony while on holiday with friends, and one year on, Catherine is determined to unearth the facts about that night. But how well did she truly know Susie, and who – if anyone – can she now trust?

With hints of intrigue, gaslighting, and coercion surfacing, Catherine must be careful, or her own safety could be at stake.

And Then She Fell explores the secrets and lies around Susie’s life through the eyes of a strong and faithful protagonist. With a unique structure, we experience ten scenarios to explain the tragedy as the narrative unfolds. Follow Catherine’s journey as she explores the possible reasons for Susie’s death, and you may find that – just like Catherine – you are unsure exactly what to believe.

Peggy Moriarty’s life has been focused on being a single mom to her twins, Grace and Greg. But now that they’re teenagers doing their own things, she’s at a loss. Her only hobby is watching Messages from Beyond, a show about a medium who connects the grieving with their deceased loved ones.

When the twins leave for college, they give Peggy a gift certificate for an exercise class. At first, Peggy is insulted. But once the sting wears off, she realizes if she gets in shape, she might gain the confidence she needs to go on her favorite TV show and talk to her late husband one last time.

Cari has worn numerous hats in her life. She proudly wore the uniform of the United States Air Force, obtained her bachelor’s degree and worked as a critical care RN for almost a decade. She also owned her own Personal Chef and Catering company for six years. After all that, she chose to turn her attention back to her family. 

Closing her business didn’t make her a couch potato, however. She volunteered at her church, volunteered her time as a Mentor Mom for two MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups, started a thriving book club a few years ago (go figure), and also belonged to a monthly lunch club. She happily entertained people in her home and, along with her husband, raised her three kids in the midst of it all. She not only has a passion for writing, but also for serving. She views writing as a form of service for people from all walks of life.

She lives in southern Illinois with her ridiculously patient husband of over thirty years, three children, one son-in-law, and one granddaughter. Cari can be found at www.carischaeffer.com and on the social media site mewe.com.
