About the Author

Dee Willson felt the writer’s call at fifteen, when she penned her first novel and received her first rejection letter to go with it. Over twenty years later, with two successful businesses under her belt (both with Canada’s largest book retailer, Indigo Books), Dee Willson rekindled her passion for novels. She joined a hard-core book club, published short stories and interviews, contributed to blogs, and wrote the novel A Keeper’s Truth, followed by GOT (Gift of Travel). Dee is presently working on the second instalment in the Keeper’s series, and Meant 2 B, a crazy ghost story riddled with fate. Dee and her husband currently reside in Burlington, Ontario. They are building their dream home on the shore of Lake Ontario, where they expect to watch their daughters frolic in the lake, and possibly grow four heads. Visit her online at www.deewillson.com or on Twitter @denisewillson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Exciting read, and absorbing characters. Not a genre I am used to, and I had some difficulty understanding all the mysterious goings-on and the mythology involved. Partly my fault for skimming over some of the longish explanations!
Willson is a very good writer.
Pernickety point: many an apostrophe is in the wrong place - needs some more editing.

"WITH A GENEROUS WIT THAT READERS SHOULD SAVOR, WILLSON PRESENTS TESS AS A DAMAGED WOMAN DESPERATE TO HEAL.... THE AUTHOR ALSO SPREADS HER LOVE AND KNOWLEDGE OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS ON NEARLY EVERY PAGE.... YET AS WILLSON UNFURLS MORE OF HER WORLD, HER SERIES' IMMENSE POTENTIAL PROVES IRRESISTIBLE."
- KIRKUS REVIEW

"A Keeper's Truth by Dee Wilson is an intriguing novel that explores some of the myths that date back to antiquity. I think it is an amazing story, and I appreciate the way that Dee Wilson approaches these controversial mythical lands. I didn't feel like I was reading some fantastical fantasy, but rather a historical review... I found this book enjoyable and entertaining, and I highly recommend it to science fiction aficionados who have an interest in the ancient lost civilizations of the earth and how these affect us today. It is a marvelous story and I am looking forward to reading the sequel."

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ 23 Mar. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This beautifully written novel will be of particular interest to those who find themselves curious about the paranormal. It is obvious that the author, Dee Willson spent much time on research and it shows in her references. The main character Tess becomes a grieving widow and much to her surprise her entire world turns weird. She is completely unaware of the danger around her until her knight in shining armor opens a part of life that she herself is not aware of. This book will leave you wondering about our very existence on earth. Just a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Reader's Anticipation 4 Jun. 2016
By Vaughn Roycroft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was immediately lured into Tess's world, mainly the blend of her strength and humor. I would've followed her anywhere, but I really became intrigued by the deepening magical realism and modernized folklore she encounters. The pace of this book is blistering, and I found myself reading it every chance I got for three days. There was an odd change of character perspective as the book raced toward climax, but I soon gathered why this had to be, and the switch didn't slow me. All I could say at the end is, "Well, I hope Willson's busy working on the sequel." I can't wait to read on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, I could not put it down! 27 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From page one I was hooked. Not only was this a well written book, it kept me interested and wanting more as I ended every chapter. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the author incorporated ancient mythology into a modern day story that takes place in a town which could very well be the one you live in, with the main character, Tess, as one of your neighbors. The author did a fabulous job bringing her characters to life, and between that and the mythology, I didn’t want the story to end.
I highly suggest you read this book. Like me, you will be begging the author for more. I can't wait for book number two!

5.0 out of 5 stars just an amazing menagerie. Luckily this is the first in a ... 1 April 2016
By UIBB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What a moving book, from the first page to the last. A Keeper’s Truth is the story of Tess Morgan, her life has seen more then its share of pain and misery, from her neglected childhood to her early widowhood, Tess knows sorrow. As she begins to peak out from under the shroud of mourning, life is waiting for her. But world turns out to be much scarier than she ever realized as she learns that she is part of a force as old as the world itself.

I thought this was going to be a fairly standard second chance romance, but it was so much more. The friendship with Thomas, the rivalry with Bryce, the Keepers and lost souls, just an amazing menagerie.
Luckily this is the first in a series, unfortunately I have no idea when book 2 is released, but I will be thrilled to continue this journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm speechless at how good this is 9 April 2016
By Shannan Neff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm trying to figure out where to start for this review. The folklore spun through this story is exquisitely researched and the authenticity of it (especially the souls, mermaids and rare fae) just made the story so much better and drew me in so much deeper. I've never been a widow, though I've lost loved ones, and I have family members with mental illness. Dee portrayed life with someone that has untreated bipolar perfectly without making it traumatic, including the way because of her mother, Tess questions her own sanity when her nightmares and visions start. How else do you explain seeing people that nobody else can? The grief, the pain and everything that Tess (and her daughter) go through even months after losing Meyer is so real that I teared up several times. Thomas was so well portrayed I could picture him, Sofia, Mrs Marples, Grams and Gramps. Bryce was a good foil to Tess, knowing so much but yet trying to let her come into everything herself, even while being her white knight to protect her from aspects of her life she didn't even know about yet. Ms. Willson grabbed my attention with the reborn souls, kept tightening it (especially with those magazine article excerpts as chapter headers) and didn't let go even after I ran out of words to read. I will be waiting on book two and plan to read her quirky ghost story coming out too.
