Author Matty Dalrymple to Release Final Book in Lizzy Ballard Thriller Trilogy

Online PR News – 02-March-2019 – West Chester, PA – What happens when an extraordinary ability transforms an ordinary life?

That is the question that author Matty Dalrymple asks, and answers, in her suspense and thriller novels, the latest of which launches on April 4, 2019. The Iron Ring is the concluding installment of the Lizzy Ballard thriller trilogy, which also includes Rock Paper Scissors (2017) and Snakes & Ladders (2018).

Dalrymple says, 'Tweaking one aspect of an otherwise ordinary life provides the chance not only to experience the thrills and suspense of a character's journey, but also to explore questions such as the moral responsibility of an individual with an extraordinary ability.'

Lizzy Ballard's ability was thrust upon her not only against her will, but initially without her knowledge. In Book 1: Rock Paper Scissors, based largely in the Philadelphia and Chester County, PA, area, a tragic turn of events reveals what that ability is and reveals its terrifying implications. Rock Paper Scissors was named a 2018 Notable Indie by Shelf Unbound magazine and received the indieBRAG BRAG Medallion for excellence.

'Dalrymple has written a fast-paced, complex thriller that can keep a reader engaged and off-kilter until its foreboding conclusion. ... A deadly game involving a dangerous girl that does have a winner: the reader.' -Kirkus Reviews

In Lizzy Ballard Book 2: Snakes & Ladders, Lizzy flees from Pennsylvania to Sedona, AZ, in an attempt to escape the clutches of those who would take advantage of her skill and corrupt it to serve their own goals.

'Dalrymple's works always hang together in the most thrilling and satisfying ways, and Snakes & Ladders is no exception—it should be at the top of everyone's reading list.' - Robert Blake Whitehill, Screenwriter and Best-selling Author of the Ben Blackshaw Series

In The Iron Ring, Lizzy struggles with her moral responsibility—will she succumb to the temptation to use her power in support of or against the forces ranged against her?

'Dalrymple gives a master class in how to raise the stakes for her complex, well-drawn characters as they fight to disentangle themselves from impossible situations.' - Lisa Regan, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling crime fiction author

Dalrymple is also the author of the Ann Kinnear Suspense Novels, The Sense of Death and The Sense of Reckoning, and the Ann Kinnear Suspense Shorts.

Dalrymple lives with her husband, Wade Walton, and their dogs in Chester County, PA, and is a long-time resident of the Philadelphia area. Arizona and Maine, the setting of The Sense of Reckoning, are frequent travel destinations.

Dalrymple will be celebrating the launch of The Iron Ring at 5:00 on Thursday, April 4, 2019, at Kildare's Irish Pub, 19 West Gay Street, West Chester, PA; all thriller fans are welcome!

She also welcomes the opportunity to speak with readers in Chester County and the surrounding area at book clubs and bookstore events.
