Author Biography

Author Barbara T. Cerny grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado, which at that time was a small town of 30,000 people. She left that little burg to see the world, garner three college degrees, and to serve in the US Army. After eight years on active duty and fourteen years in the reserves, she retired as a lieutenant colonel in 2007. While deployed to the Middle East in 2005, Ms. Cerny finally figured out she had to get going on the real love of her life, writing. She wrote her first two novels during that time and hasn’t stopped. She is presently working on novels number seven, eight, and nine. When not writing, Ms. Cerny works as an information technology specialist and supervisor. She lives with her loving husband, their two active teenagers, and three needy cats.

The Tiefling by Barbara T. Cerny is an enchanting tale. Branan Lachlan, heir to the title Earl of Glaxton, is five years old when he feels a light in his "belly" and hears angels speak. He believes he has an Angel light. A dying stranger arrives at their home and gifts him with a sword, saying it belongs to him. On a hunt, on the eve of his wedding, he is attacked by a demon and turned into an immortal monster, known as a Tiefling. He is condemned to feed on human flesh for all eternity. He believes he has an Angel light inside him. Once turned, he must leave his family, pregnant wife and all he knows behind, to ensure their protection from him, whilst he lives in a cave watching over them. He travels far and wide, all the while refusing to eat human flesh and living off animals instead. He is taunted constantly by Raum Kroni, the demon that turned him. Kroni is tasked with causing him to turn completely and eat human flesh to destroy his angelic light. Many intriguing adventures follow. An amazing book and a must-read!

The Tiefling by Barbara T. Cerny is a fascinating read. The use of Gaelic words is a wonderful touch as it matched so well with the story. It is an interesting take on creationism and evolution, woven through with touches of Heaven, hell and life on earth in old Scotland. Love, hate, evil, fear, frustration, and anger all compete for your attention in this new twist on angels, demons, and myths of Scotland. There is such interesting insight into the daily lives during the ways of old. It is a riveting read with an interesting plot, well written and totally engrossing. I look forward to more from Barbara T. Cerny. Barbara has a most vivid imagination and this shows clearly in the way she draws you into the story.
