As an author, coach, and public speaker, I hope this blog will help to show the frustrations and joys of the work behind the scenes, and hopefully attract many people that will become friends, and maybe even fans of my work.

However, she is not the one to be feared most by this agent.
For her anger and zest in destroying his career has created a copycat, a serial
killer with a new target--literary agents.
When a serial killer stalks literary agents, and brutally
kills them, the world of publishing panics with fear as the FBI hunts for the
cold blooded killer, wondering what could cause a person to become such a monster?
To someone else, the rejection letter might be perceived as a simple piece of correspondence. But when Amy, who suffers from Bipolar disorder receives a form rejection letter from Edward, an agent
she had an
affair with at a recent convention, she takes the rejection as both personal
and professional--in short--a declaration of war.
Amy quickly embarks on a plan to get revenge by destroying
Edward's literary agency, but Amy is soon not the one to be feared the most.
Her actions create a copycat, a serial killer, who targets literary agents and
viciously murders them.
Living with the knowledge she has created a monster, a serial killer, is one thing, while doing
nothing to stop the madness is another. But how could she track down a killer
when she has no training in such?
Thinking like a mad man might be the only way--but could she go there and survive herself? When the winds of fate,
however, rekindle the romance with Edward, thus making him the next target--she
really has no choice but to help the FBI before it is too late.
