Author Biography

T.R. Horne is an avid reader, reviewer and all around critic of things written and non-written (just ask her husband...). She writes suspense novels for the most part but flirts with her first love, Poetry, from time to time. Between studying for her doctorate and dreaming of retiring early and moving into a tiny house, she carries on with a pretty lackluster life filled with a 9-5 job, sore feet and a perpetual smile. She resides in Virginia but calls Atlanta, Georgia home when people ask. Thank her husband, son and two dogs for keeping her mildly sane and writing.

Girl Soldier by T.R. Horne is a plot driven story about a young girl’s discovery of her parents’ true identity. An unplanned meeting with federal agents sparked an inner curiosity within Rain, only to be squashed when she found out that her parents were agents. After a brief meeting at the CIA headquarters, Rain and her father were informed that her mother had gone missing from duty; no communication whatsoever. A mission to locate her for briefing was under way. Her father’s refusal to get back in the line of duty left a gap — an opportunity for Rain to prove she’s able to perform the required tasks at hand, while holding onto the fact that she’d get to see her mother. After a tug of war with her father, Chief of Staff Christopher Dalton agreed to put Rain through rigorous training to see if she’d pass sniper training. As Rain absorbed everything, one persistent thought pulsated within her - if she could make it through everything, she’d get a chance to see her mother. As of now, it had been ten years since Rain had last seen her.

The author has the art of storytelling in a wonderful tale that I enjoyed thoroughly. I found myself reading past my breaking point because of the gripping plot. The author did a wonderful job of creating the scenes to really pull you into the plot. I loved the format of the story and the descriptions really painted a vivid picture. One thing that jumps right out is the courage of the protagonist as she is compelled by a burning desire. The story is woven with a complex plot that is unpredictable and leaves you with a satisfying ending — a hunt turns into a family rescue mission.
