Meet the Author

A typical day for me starts at 4:00 a.m. I work outside my home so I must write in the early morning. I consume a pot of coffee before seven, and hopefully write 10 pages before I switch hats and prepare to open the family bookstore.

With teenagers in the house, breakfast is a buffet affair. The store opens by 10, so I pack my laptop, toss a little makeup on my face, and head to work. By late afternoon I switch hats again, stopping off to do a few household errands, then it's another buffet for dinner. The dishwasher on, a few loads of laundry in and out, and I'm ready for a glass of wine and a soak in a hot tub to brainstorm tomorrow's 10 pages.

Ideally, if I can get to bed by nine, my 4:00 a.m. writing schedule will be met the next day.

Ah, the life of a writer who wears too many hats.

    fun spy loves spy vs. spy romantic triangle

    Casmir ¿The Actress¿ Balasi believes that the world is her stage, but recognizes trouble when the Euro-Quest agent with attitude sees Nasty Nicky scanning a room. This means the Red Mafia Don Yurii Petrov escaped from the Prague maximum security prison and is seeking the woman who sent him there, Casmir. One year ago she seduced him into a proposal and a prison sentence. Now he is back and she can only assume he wants to permanently annul her life for betraying him. Casmir consults with her superior Polax who explains one agent is dead and her mom was almost abducted. Polax also informs her she will spend time at Le Mystere on the Louisiana coast with a bodyguard until Petrov is neutered. She assumes her bodyguard is a rat diner --- American Onyxx Agent Pierce Fourtier is to protect Casmir and her mother who will stay with him in his Bayou home. He assumes his ward is an amoral femme fatale. Still she will bring Yurii who might bring out the Chameleon, the nasty adversary that Pierce chases. As Pierce and Casmir fall in love, the enemy is coming. --- This is a fun spy loves spy vs. spy thriller that never takes itself seriously as ironically the prime cast is purposely stereotyped to satirize romantic espionage tales. Casmir is a terrific tough yet tender protagonist while Pierce is her perfect match cherishing the three different sides of his beloved. The secondary characters augment the fine entertainment by either being caricaturist enemies or superiors, or making agents seem like real people with real families. Bombshell Agent Wendy Rosneau provides a delightful tale. --- Harriet Klausner
