The Veritas Codex - Book 1

September 12, 2020

A driven television personality makes an earth-shattering discovery. Is it Bigfoot? Aliens? Pity she can't remember...

TV star Lauren Grayson approaches urban myths with a scientific eye. But with the show in trouble and her co-host insisting they go public with their relationship, she needs a huge win to stay on the air. She thinks she has it with the discovery of a possible alien corpse in Peru… until the government arrests her and destroys her evidence.

Desperate for a final shot at redemption, Lauren and her team head to the Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of Bigfoot. There, an encounter with a double-dealing diamond thief leads her into the heart of a volcano, and to a startling connection between this quest and her South American find. But for some reason, Lauren is having trouble remembering what she has learned…

Will this startling breakthrough flip the channel to Lauren’s deadliest episode? Will she get her sensational story on screen, or will she and her team become an endangered species?

The Veritas Codex is the first book in a riveting paranormal thriller series. If you like page-turning action, gutsy heroines, and brain-bending bombshells, then you’ll love Lauren Grayson’s breathtaking adventures.

Buy The Veritas Codex and follow the footprints to the truth today!

About The Author

Betsey is a Certified Occupational Safety Specialist and holds a degree in Emergency Management.
She worked for the Oklahoma Department of Labor for over 27 years. During that time, she conducted over 1,000 on-site safety consultations for private sector employers. She went on to become the Assistant Director of the Public Employee's Occupational Safety & Health (PEOSH) unit. Her role required her to conduct enforcement inspections, including fatality investigations. 
During her time with the State, she was called to serve at disaster sites to ensure worker safety. It began with the Murrah Bombing in 1995, and continued at the World Trade Center site and later, in New Orleans after Hurricanes Katrina/Rita. Following the tornadoes in Oklahoma, she was often part of the boots-on-the-ground teams working to keep recovery workers safe. 
Her experiences as a safety professional and investigator informs her writing. "You can't turn it off," Betsey says. "Safety is a value and always finds a way into my stories. My characters don't always make good choices, and must often face the consequences of their actions."

Chaotic Navigator Podcast

Interview with Emergency Manager & Author Betsey Kulakowski

This podcast is a little different from anything I've done before. Here we focus on what every day citizens can do to be better prepared for disasters.
Here's the show's promo: 
What is the Chaotic Navigation podcast? The podcast is a way to provide others with decades of experience in health & safety, including personal security. With decades of experience, I hope to relay information to my listeners to assist them in making informed decisions. In addition, I have a wealth of knowledge in human psychology and intelligence from my studies within the US military. I have since studied psychology as an adult educator and hope to bring an understanding of what makes people do the things they do. Constantly asking. Why? Why do people do the things they do, and how can we keep ourselves and our families safe by knowing how our communities will react to certain events.
