She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it….
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator, is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story… but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets dating back over thirty years.
But can she do it in time…

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
It is fast paced with a lot going on – suspense, mystery, action, murder and a bit of romance. There’s a need to keep the story flowing but also building the suspense and action and keeping that page turning feeling, the need to know what’s coming next, going on. There are a lot of characters showing up, so making sure that each one is clear to the reader and ensuring they are consistent throughout the book or if they are going to change, a clear reason as to why.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write. Read. Share your writing with readers and with writers. Write some more. Read some more. Ask questions of authors that are doing what you want to be doing. The internet is a great place to learn lots. But most of all follow your dream. It’s worth making it happen. Happy writing.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It was one of those things where a number of ideas came together at once – what would it be like to lose your identity? what if you were kidnapped and didn’t find out until you were an adult, how would you learn who you were? what if there was a plane crash and the only survivor was a baby? So like most writers since I was curious I wrote a book to discover what might be the answers to these questions.
