An unsuspecting First Lady must rely on a Secret Service agent to discover who can be trusted–and who will do anything to keep control.
When a shy country girl from Virginia marries a prominent Georgetown attorney, her life is bound to change. But when that attorney is catapulted to the office of President of the United States, she is thrust into the role of First Lady–and uncovers a world of secrets and betrayals that alters everything she once knew.
After recovering from her initial missteps and negotiating the obstacles of her new public life, Elizabeth Collins begins to understand the nature of politics. But as another election approaches, turmoil in the White House intensifies. Leaks. Lies. Deceit. Deception. People the First Lady thought were friends desert her and the true character of people she thought she knew is revealed.
When the stakes become life and death, the First Lady uncovers the ultimate betrayal and is forced to come to terms with her own role in the political process. Only with the help of Secret Service Agent Clint Brody, can she hope to find her way out of danger–and uncover the identity of the real traitor in the White House.
How long have you been writing?
Pretty much forever, though not as a fiction writer. I have a degree in journalism, so started out in the newspaper business.
What was your first published book?
Shades of Gray, which is an epic historical fiction novel set during the Civil War. I never thought I’d write another book after finishing that one, and it’s still one of my bestselling books with almost 1,500 reviews.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.
Well, it’s pretty much the reason I bought my house twenty-five years ago. It’s the entire first floor of the original stone house (which is more two hundred years old). I had to build an addition so I would have a kitchen, living room and bathrooms.
Anything special about your space?
What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?
I bought an extra wide recliner with proceeds from winning a book contest. I do most of my writing in that.
What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. The writing process is kind of magical to me, and Elizabeth explains it in a way that is interesting and entertaining.
What do you like to read for relaxation?
I enjoy reading just about anything historical or military-related. I don’t read a lot of fiction, but Vince Flynn (Kyle Mills) novels are a definite exception.
