Young, beautiful, ambitious Megan Cleary seems to have the perfect life–a dream job in a prestigious law firm in New York City, an upscale boyfriend, and a fabulous apartment. But her perfect world is shattered when one night she is brutally attacked. Afraid and ashamed, she cannot forget her terrifying ordeal, and shortly afterward she illegally buys a handgun to protect herself.
A few months later, Megan is attacked again, but this time she is armed and ready. She shoots her assailant and flees the scene before the police arrive and discover the body. She never tells anyone that she owns a gun or that she has killed a man, but her life begins to unravel as she struggles to gain control of the fear and guilt from which she cannot free herself. When events beyond her control leave her financially destitute and emotionally drained, she returns to her parents’ home in Buffalo to start over.
This suspense thriller will keep you guessing until the very end!

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Our writing is more intense than most Christian fiction. We focus on stories with intense characters. In this story, Megan is a very self-serving person who has to learn that life is about more than herself and her own problems.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep going. Success comes slowly through a lot of hard work; there are no magic bullets and no easy roads. If you have the talent and determination, you can get to where you want to go.
