Why did you write this book?
The Alibi was inspired by my year in the Florida prison system, doing PR, not time.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love any book about World War II, especially thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Gabriel Allon, an art restorer and an Israeli spy, a fictional character created by Daniel Silva.
What are you working on at the moment?
I just finished a women’s fiction with elements of historical romance and suspense called The Siege: A Novel, set in current day Florence, Italy, and New York City and the Greek island of Crete during WW II. It is inspired by a true story.
What would you do if you were in the wrong place at the wrong time—forced into the honeymoon suite with a man who wasn’t your husband while your hotel was under attack by terrorists? That’s how The Siege: A Novel, opens. When artist Theia Constas finds some vintage WW II photographs and love letters in a shoebox in her grandmother’s closet upon her death, she goes on a journey of self-discovery, where she finds love and realizes her passion through a link to her grandparents’ hidden past.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In October, I will be announcing my involvement in a special project with a great group of authors that I’m really excited about. I can’t wait to tell you about it, so stay tuned for more details

In The Alibi, Merritt Saxe, newly hired public relations specialist with the Florida prison system, answers an urgent plea from their division’s director, Willard Ware Baintree. Following his orders, she finds him in the apartment of his mistress, his bloody T-shirt and the mistress’s dead body convincing her the criminal justice superstar is himself a criminal. The director claims he didn’t kill the woman and coerces Merritt into being his alibi. Meanwhile, as the director pulls her farther into his web of lies, Merritt breaks with her longstanding boyfriend and begins a steamy relationship with hunky attorney Israel Goodspeed, whose brother works for the director. Yet how can she trust Israel with her secret or her heart when she suspects the director has been orchestrating their relationship to keep her in line? Speaking out about the cover-up could cost her more than time in jail…it could cost her life.
