THIS WAS A DEADLY GAME AND SHE DIDN’T WANT TO PLAY
Three months ago, Ali Lamarque’s mother died in an accident. Ali is convinced
she could have prevented, and what little faith she had is fading.
Grief-stricken, her father, a renowned scientist, has sold their California
ranch and buried himself in his work. He will soon leave for Brazil’s Amazon
rain forest on business. Ali’s relationship with her childhood best
friend, Kane, is changing, and suddenly she’s being followed. Insidious
and relentless, it’s harassment with no proof it ever happened.
With her life in turmoil, and against her father’s wishes, Ali takes a break
from college to go with him, hoping the trip will help heal their grief and
her guilt. It will give her time to sort out her feelings for Kane—and leaving
would stop the stalking.
But Ali didn’t anticipate the dangers that would confront her or know that
her choices would make the difference between living and dying for not
only herself, but countless others.
My husband, Jerry and I live in sunny Florida happy to have our two married children living nearby. After retiring from a career in insurance, I focused on my love of writing. I write inspirational young adult fiction though new adults and women of all ages also enjoy my contemporary YA blend of suspense with a touch of romance. A finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writer’s First Impressions contest with my first novel, The Stonekeepers, I’ve also won awards for my short stories and poetry. I love being with family, reading, walking on the beach, and on trails. I enjoy reading to children, reviewing and editing for writer friends, and having fun taking photos with my iPhone camera.
