Charlotte Ansari, international correspondent for CCN, has a problem. Her investigation into a clandestine society of assassins has made them very angry. And that’s not the most frightening part. Her Asperger’s son, who is now the leader of this global, murder-for-hire organization, has assigned its top-ranked assassin to take care of the problem.
This second book in the exciting CHARLOTTE ANSARI THRILLER series, takes readers far beyond the boundaries of the first book. This wild ride moves from New York, to Ireland and the Turkish desert as Charlotte and her unwitting companions attempt to penetrate the greatest conspiracy in history. To solve the mystery, Charlotte and her companions must use super-fast quantum computers, decipher the ancient text of the Book of Enoch, and explore the buried ruins of the oldest temple on earth. The conspiracy they discover, however, is as modern as today’s headlines. And even more frightening.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Thriller are plot-heavy and normally light on character development. My challenge has always been to flesh out my characters without sacrificing the relentless pace and thrill-a-minute nature of the thriller form. It’s quite a challenge, and authors who succeed at it (in my opinion) get too litttle credit for the degree of difficulty.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write, write, write. Then read a bunch of books, and write some more. Good writers always start out as good readers. So never get too busy to read books.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a bestselling thriller author (“The Shekinah Legacy”), I have always been a fan of the genre. My first exposure was when I was ten years old and I read Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I’ve been a fan ever since. Now I have the intense pleasure of writing stores that bring tingles to readers and make the breath catch in their throats.
