Dear Reader,

Hi, My name is A.K. Smith and I am the author of A Deep Thing. It is a suspense conspiracy novel that takes place in the jungles of Mexico and the woods of Camp David. I can't get enough of movies or books that make me think,  "What if?" Could something like this really happen? Take the trip, Join the journey and decide for yourself....What if?


I believe...anything is possible. 


2017 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner and #1 Amazon Bestseller.


Invite me to your next book club! I'm  offering a free 30-minute Book Club attendance by skype, face time or conference call...I can also email your book club, discussions questions to get you pondering. Make your book club exciting by inviting the author!  I would love to attend.


Thank you for your interest!

Authors need reviews, and it would make my day if you took a few minutes and wrote a review of my book on Amazon, good reads, Itunes, or wherever you shop! Only has to be a sentence!

Fascinated by the ‘What If’s’ in life, she still wonders if  Shangri-La and The Holy Grail exist—hidden somewhere—waiting to be discovered. Her favorite question, “What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?” led her to both marriage and writing her first book.
