Meet Some of our Staff


Although InD’tale may be closing its doors, many of our reviewers would love to continue reviewing books for authors who have sent their books in to us over the years. We have set up a generic email address, should any of you wonderful authors wish to request any particular one of our reviewers, to review your upcoming release. Please reach out to [email protected] to request a specific reviewer, and we will forward your information to them.

 Although this is goodbye, I’d like to tell you about myself. I have been married for thirty-seven years, and have three daughters and a grandson. I’ve been on the staff of InD’tale Magazine for the past eight years as a reviewer, which I have absolutely loved. I also review every book I read on Amazon. I have a therapy dog, Teddy, and we visit nursing homes. I also enjoy sewing and crocheting when I am not reviewing or doing visits with Teddy. Although the magazine is being retired, I will remain available for writing reviews for whoever is interested. Please reach out via the email address above. I would love to hear from you!

It has been amazing to review for InD'tale for the last 8 years, and I'm sad that it is coming to an end. I have found absolutely amazing authors whose books I continue to read, and would never have found if not for the magazine. I am still open to do reviews, and feel free to contact me if you have a book for me to read.

I’ve been an avid reader since my Mama taught me to read at 2 years old because my favorite two questions were "What does this say?" and "Mama, read this to me please?" I began my professional review career with InD'tale in late 2018, after retiring from a 30 year career as a Mortgage Document Auditor, Senior Quality Control Analyst, and Departmental Trainer. I enjoy almost every genre for except romanticized demons and audiobooks. Reading is my safe haven, my escape from fear and pain, and my joyful entry to new worlds and adventure. I'd like to make myself available to continue reading and reviewing books.

I’m a wannabe writer of speculative fiction who writes under the name Cloud S. Riser. You can find my work on Wattpad for FREE. I read way too much, and would love to keep reading your books in exchange for reviews! When I’m not reading or writing, I’m most likely playing a video game, going for a walk, or being Mom.


Amy Rubottom

I love reading any steam level and most genres, and would be happy to provide reviews in the future. Books are my escape from the real world, and from the many hours at work, so I try to read as much as possible. Please reach out if I can review for you in the future.

I am grateful for my time spent as a member of the InD’tale family. Through InD’tale Magazine, I have enjoyed stacks of delightful books, and been introduced to authors whom I now consider my literary friends. Although this chapter of my experience as a Reviewer comes to a close, there is no end to my love of reading and reviewing. I plan to continue offering my support and reviews to the hard-working and courageous authors who bring us so much joy. Congratulations to TJ Mackay, Katy Nielsen, and the rest of the InD’tale team, for their valuable contributions to indie and small publishing.


Piper Valentine

I have loved being a book reviewer with InD’tale, and I am more than happy to do so in the future. I have never worked with such a great group of people! They never looked at you funny for talking about a character as if it were a real person, was always happy to get another “oh boy! You have GOT TO READ this author!” email, and never tired of talking books. I have found so many wonderful authors because of InD’tale, and I am incredibly thankful for that. I stand by my words when I say authors are heroes. They give you that place to escape to when life gets hard, and for many of us, it’s been far too hard the last few years. Keep those books coming, authors. You make more difference in people’s lives than you’ll ever realize.


Moira Wolf

I have loved reviewing the amazing stories InD’tale has received over the years. I am thankful to all of the authors for sharing and entrusting their work to us. I would love to continue reviewing or participating as a Beta reader for any thriller/mystery authors. I wish everyone well, and encourage you to keep writing! 


Carey Sullivan

I’ve enjoyed reading books and listening to audiobooks from a plethora of new authors over the past five years spent reviewing for InD’tale Magazine. I’ve discovered some new favorite authors and spent countless hours absorbed in intriguing stories. I’d like to thank the authors who spend their days crafting intelligent and exciting storylines, and the staff, reviewers, and publishers of this incredible publication. It’s been a fun ride, and I’m a better and more critical reader and reviewer because of this experience. Thank you! I wish everyone the best, and I hope we all continue to share our favorite books and authors with each other.
