This story tells the coming-of-age of an overprotected young mother who becomes an adult. One beautiful woman without a plan; three men, each with a plan.
Shelby is a stunning beauty, a young mother whose husband, a Hollywood stuntman, runs off with a rich glamorous older woman. On her own, Shelby is raising 8-year old Pamela and goes to work to make ends meet. She is naïve, unaware of her luminous beauty and easy-going charms neither of which goes unnoticed by men, even a world famous novelist who sets his eyes on her. She meets an irresistibly handsome and successful attorney who instantly takes up residence under her skin. Her topsy-turvy world is grounded by motherhood. Into this curious limbo where all that is required of Shelby is not to do anything she would regret, enters Marc, a successful screenwriter and former family friend who, with his final divorce decree in hand comes calling.
Because of Shelby, the lives of the three men intersect and interact in surprising ways as their just comeuppance is served.
Where is the love? Who is the future?
Katherine's novels have been compared to some of the timeless greats such as Jackie Collins, Sidney Sheldon, Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts and more recently Robert Waller, Helen Fielding and others! The whirling romance, the surprising adventure, the colorful worlds in which the characters live, all add up to unique people getting caught up in unexpected situations and sometimes finding themselves, . . . or not.
She is not exactly a novice. Until moving from Los Angeles she was a member of the Writers Guild of America West because she was writing for television and developing film scripts. Three of her original screenplays were acquired under paid options by production companies bringing her close to critical recognition.
