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.
I would so love that and I truly believe that it would make a cool movie. In fact I’ve had several
of my readers tell me the same thing. They could sooo, see Captured Lies as a movie.
Wouldn’t they make a cute couple?
wealthy one. He never wanted for anything but he also never took advantage of it either. So when she asks him to find her granddaughter who had been kidnapped as a baby, he can’t say no.
writing since I was quite young. When I was in my late twenties I decided I wanted to write a romance. I loved reading Nora Roberts, Judith McNaught, Jayne-Anne Krentz and many others and so I wanted to know if I could write like them. So I wrote a romance. And then another. And then another. I never really did anything with them because I always felt there was something missing. They weren’t quite there, as in being a good romance not as in writing like the authors I mentioned. :)
By this point in time I had found authors like Sandra Brown, Mary Higgins Clarke, Robert Ludlum and many others. I found I loved the suspense. The intrigue. The mystery. So I started to play around with Captured Lies, the first novel I published, which was originally just a romance. I already really liked the story and had a lot of positive feedback from people but I wanted to add something. So I started to change it up. And I found that I liked the story a lot more. It was more compelling. More interesting. More grabbing. It finally felt like the story and my writing was finally there.
I learned that I like creating suspense. I like creating strong, independent women who can look after themselves. I like having these women go on a journey to solve something and to ultimately find someone as well.
I think suspense, murder, mystery and romance make a fascinating read. Don’t you?
