A Secret Lies Deep by JAKe Hatmacher

A Secret Lies Deep
by JAKe Hatmacher

A SECRET LIES DEEP is a fictional exploration of a young woman, Eryn, who harbors secrets that she is reluctant to reveal. At the same time, she seeks answers to questions/secrets that are hidden from her.

As the story progresses she learns much about herself, including her sexuality, as she becomes romantically involved, not once, but twice. But the romantic part is only a very interesting and soul-searching subplot which involves whether to reveal one of her secrets which could certainly put her in harm's way.  You might think that the subplot would be enough, but the main plot explores much more as it revolves around finding the answers to the secrets eluding her. 

Eryn eventually does find those answers with the help of her host family in upstate New York while succumbing mentally and physically to some odd paranormal activity as she and a coworker are assigned the task of researching genealogies for their living history museum; more is revealed about her own life than she ever would have thought possible!


About the Author

For most of my career I have been an obstetrician and gynecologist (a doctor who delivers babies and treats medical conditions unique to women). I started to write in 2013. So far, the stories I've written depict women dealing with critical health issues, physical and psychological, where their decisions regarding them can be controversial, and the potential consequences of the decisions the main characters make. Although the stories are fictional, they do portray real potential consequences of difficult health decisions that are often made. These are stories, and of course, outcomes are not always as I have depicted. And again, as the stories are fictional, I have used my prerogative to throw in just a bit of fantasy. I'll let you be the judge if it is too much fantasy!

I came to writing during a period of inactivity in my medical career. The period of inactivity allowed me to finally write down ideas I've had for many years and develop them into stories.

Even though I harbored the ideas for years, I never thought I would put them to print. You see, I never really considered myself a writer. When I finally got the time and the gumption to proceed, with the help of some key editors, I was very surprised when the first five reviews gave me four and five-star ratings. This obviously was encouraging to me as it would be to anyone. This led me to my next book, A Secret Lies Deep, which I published in April of 2017.

I currently have thoughts for other books and one of those may be a children's book having to do with overcoming a disability.

I hope you enjoy my books. My apologies to those who desire pure entertainment. To those hoping for something more, to possibly learn something you did not know before, or to share in the main characters psychological turmoils, and still be entertained, I think I write for you.
