When Elaine Sands auditions as a singer for the Wind River Band, her wildest dreams seem to be coming true. But soon it is clear that someone is out to ruin her success. During her first night on stage, Elaine barely escapes receiving a fatal electrical shock. Threatening phone calls suggest she has become the target of some obsessed fan. Yet Elaine notes undercurrents of resentment directed at Rex Tobin, handsome singer and part owner of Craft Music Productions. Rex, not Elaine, might be the actual target. Elaine is shattered when she finds out Rex has a reason to want her out of the way-and may have hired her for the sole purpose of staging her death. What started out as a once-in-a-lifetime adventure suddenly becomes a tour of fear.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing and learning as you go. Don’t make excuses to keep from writing. If you are serious about writing it is important to keep a regular schedule and set aside a portion of time every day for writing. The biggest obstacle to getting published is not finishing a novel.
