Carrie Patel Signs in San Diego

Debut cross-genre author Carrie Patel hones her writing skills in her job as a narrative designer for video games at Obsidian EntertainmentPublishers Weekly’s review of The Buried Life notes: “With Regency-era sensibilities and Agatha Christie’s flair for the subtle conundrum, Patel’s debut novel introduces readers to a subterranean city of the future, centuries after what is dubbed “The Catastrophe,” and beautifully manages the delicate balance between entertainment and social commentary… The subtly fantastical story is resplendent with surprisingly deep villains, political corruption, and a gripping whodunit feel.”
