Little Miss Straight Lace
Publisher : At Your Command, Inc.
When a dedicated biostatistician learns a bit too much
about her pharmaceutical client’s latest research, her life begins to spin out of control, and a
dashing computer security expert from South America seems the perfect
antidote. But is his sudden arrival just the happy coincidence it
seems? Find out by digging
into this complex novel of suspense, humor, and romance that takes the reader on a wild ride of murder, mayhem, sex, and drugs–of
the pharmaceutical variety, of course–until the very last page.
The Story Behind This Book
I originally came up with the idea for "Little Miss Straight Lace" while stirring spaghetti sauce on my kitchen stove (actually a rarity for me, as, like LMSL's protagonist, I am useless in the kitchen). What I find funny in retrospect is that the final story turned out to be nothing like that original idea, but apparently, cooking a bad meal is the secret to creativity for this author.
