Cat Welcomes Our Newest Author ~ Dave Lager & His Fantastic Action/Crime Novel Series To The Reading Den…



I am happy to welcome Dave Ramacitti aka, Dave Lager and his hard-hitting action packed crime novel series of “Ro Delahanty.” I was excited to learn that the lead character is written around a woman warrior, Ro, trying to make her dream of being a police officer come true. I am about halfway reading book one of Dave’s series, and WOW!

Dave’s former experiences in journalism shines within his writing, as I’m sure he saw it all when doing so, and the first thing that hit me was the attention to detail in the storyline in his writing. I’m enjoying it and the dry musings here and there.

I am happy to have Dave as a new friend and fellow author as I welcome him into our author family. Let’s learn “who Dave Lager is,” the seasoned writer who brings Ro Delahanty to life within the pages of his novel series as I finished reading book one Ro’s Handle: A Ro Delahanty Novel

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Author Dave Lager is the pen name of Dave Ramacitti. The pen name is actually a derivative of a pet name used for her brother by his real-life sister, not unlike Ro’s unique name for Tuck, her brother.

Theoretically, Dave is the author of the Ro Delahanty novels. However, it feels more like he is the one transcribing as Ro dictates to him her story of finding herself in dangerous situations and discovering what it means to be a cop and a warrior. She is not reluctant to wake him up in the middle of the night with an idea for a new chapter.

Three novels in the Ro Delahanty series are now available: “Ro’s Handle,” “Hear Evil,” and “Losses” The fourth, “Secrets Never End,” should be released early 2022, while the fifth, “Secrets Never End: Revelations” should be out later in 2022. Dave has made his career in journalism and marketing and published several books under his given name for the small business market. Dave’s careers included working as a newspaper reporter and magazine editor and publisher, and as a marketing /public relations consultant helping small business be more effective marketers.

Dave and his wife of nearly thirty years are still best friends. They are pet lovers with 80% cute /20% brat puppy named Sofie and a laconic cat named Mr. Squeaks. They all reside in Western Illinois alongside the beautiful Mississippi River.

MORE ABOUT THE RO DELAHANTY NOVELS

Book One and Book Three a New Release



Book One – Introduction to
Ro’s Handle: A Ro Delahanty Novel

An overzealous rookie cop. A biased old-boys club. Will she have to shoot her way in?

Ro Delahanty never let her dream of becoming a cop out of her sights. Between years of black-belt judo lessons and sharpshooting championships, she thought she could handle anything the academy threw her way. But as the only female rookie on the force, she soon discovers it’ll take a warrior’s determination to get out from behind the desk and into the action.

Knowing she’ll have to work twice as hard for half the respect, she refuses to let distractions like a new boyfriend blobtnck her target. And her sacrifices will be well worth it if she can secure a “handle” that brands her as an equal instead of the butt of a joke.

When a simple field assignment spirals into a heavily-armed hostage standoff, will Ro and her trusty Sig Sauer P229 .357 aim true or will she miss the shot she’s trained her whole life to take?

Ro’s Handle is the first book in the gritty Ro Delahanty police procedural series. If you like tenacious heroines, crime scene drama, and high-octane shootouts, then you’ll love David Lager’s torn-from-the-headlines tale.


**********************************


Book Two – (Newer Release!) – Hear Evil: Book Two in the Ro Delahanty Series

She works hard to serve and protect. But now her dad’s in danger, and nothing in her training can defend him…

Rookie deputy sheriff Ro Delahanty only wants to uphold the law and make her father proud. And after a long day dealing with bar fights, pranksters, and car crashes, sometimes her only solace is their shared love of classical music. But she’s in for her toughest case yet when her dad, Big Mike, is struck down by a mysterious sickness…

Retracing Big Mike’s steps, she learns he attended a concert along with other victims, who are suffering from the same unexplainable symptoms. And the deeper she digs for the truth, the more she fears the incomprehensible culprit may be immune to any of her usual weapons.

Can Ro uncover the answers and save her father before his final note plays?

Hear Evil is the second book in the thrilling Ro Delahanty police procedural series. If you like intriguing cases, determined heroines, and supernatural mysteries, then you’ll love Dave Lager’s thought-provoking novel.


**********************************



Book Three(New Release!) – Losses: Book Three in the Ro Delahanty Series

Ten years ago Ro Delahanty announced to her fifth grade schoolmates she wanted to be a cop when she grew up. Unlike most kids, she didn’t change her mind a half-dozen times along the way.

Instead, she trained herself for the job by earning a black belt in judo and becoming a champion pistol shooter.

Now a rookie Fort Armstrong County deputy sheriff, she has to contend with being the only female on the force — will she be accepted as an equal? …with wondering what her “handle” — a nickname deputies informally “award” to fellow deputies — will be, and whether it will be one she can live with.

…and, after two years of self-imposed celibacy, with the unexpected arrival of a “complication” in her personal life.

But her ultimate test comes when four bad guys with assault rifles capture a fellow deputy and, armed only with her Sig Sauer P229 .357, she has to face them single-handed in a shootout.

Ro learns not only what it means to be a cop, but what it means to be a true warrior against those that want to do harm to those she is sworn to protect.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~ KIM CARTER

Kim Carter is an Atlanta, GA, award-winning author of suspense, mystery and thriller novels.

She was a finalist for the 2018 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award and a recipient of the 2017 TCK Publishers’ Readers’ Choice Award for her book Murder Among The Tombstones. This is the first book in her Clara and Iris Mystery series. The characters in this series are a couple of overly curious widows who become private investigators. These funny women were inspired by Kim’s mother and her mom’s best friend.

Her other titles include Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle, When Dawn Never Comes, Deadly Odds, No Second Chances, and her latest, And The Forecast Called For Rain.

Kim’s writing career started after she suffered an illness that made her housebound for a couple of years. An avid reader of mystery novels herself, she embarked on writing as a means of filling her time. She began to share those early writings with friends and family who encouraged her to pursue writing professionally. Her health struggles and successes have been chronicled on The Lifetime Television in early 2000, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Women’s Day Magazine, and Guidepost.

Prior to her illness, Kim worked in many different capacities in county government as her “Day Job,” but ultimately, it was her job as a correctional officer that provided her the opportunities to talk and interact with a diverse group of people. Her experiences ran the gamete of inspiring success stories to tragic endings, much like her mysteries.

She self-published her first book No Second Chances. One of the guest speakers at the launch party she had at the Performing Arts Center in Newnan, Georgia included her close friend retired Atlanta Police Chief Eldrin Bell. This connection would become helpful as she started doing more research for other books, this time working with a small publishing house.

Kim began networking and made connections with numerous homicide detectives, medical examiners, and prison officials. Her research has taken her many places including morgues, death row, and the occasional midnight visit to cemeteries.

Kim is a college graduate of Saint Leo University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. She and her husband have three successful grown children and reside just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

Kim’s books can be purchased online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, and Indie Bound.

If your book club is interested, please contact her publicist, Catherine Lyon at lyonmedia@aol.com or call Catherine at (602-795-6345). 

We Sure Hope We Hear from you soon!

Respectfully yours, 
Kelly Keylon
President of Raven South Publishing
