He was unaware they searched for him. After all, he was an ordinary man, a simple pianist who herded goats and played Chopin high in the Pyrenees Mountains. He was also unaware that deep within his brilliant hands, dormant and undisturbed, was an ability to kill.
In the darkest days of World War II, a man who plays Chopin so magnificently the angels weep, begins a reluctant journey into spyhood. Garcia Quinones, virtuoso pianist famous throughout Europe, is forced into the dark world of espionage by Britain's MI6 where he must learn to lie, deceive and murder.
"I am a pianist, not a spy," he cries. Under duress, Garcia is groomed for the lead role in a daring plot to dupe the Germans. His teacher, one of Britain's most revered spymasters, must ensure Garcia fools the Germans as brilliantly as he plays the piano.
Can the pianist's delicate fingers learn to curl around a 9mm pistol and squeeze the trigger before he faces the Gestapo and the Reichsfuhrer of Nazi Germany.
"The Unwilling Spy" is the timeless story of exceptional men who strive to battle tyranny and evil in times of war. When the soul of an artist is forced to confront the demons of political oppression, the results are unforgettable.

About the Author
A warning! She's dangerous - only six degrees from a life filled with unimaginable adventures - journeys that will plunge her readers into a world of breath-taking intrigue. Put a Walther PPK pistol in her hand and she will kill you. Her German is so precise she'd fool Hitler. Her amorous prowess? If you have a secret, she will discover it - one way or the other.
The author was born in north Florida in the little town of Live Oak, where the nearby Suwannee River flows the color of warm caramel, in a three-room, tin-roofed house named "poor." Her Irish mother's and English father's voices can be heard even today as they sweep across the hot tobacco fields of Suwannee County, "Susie, child, you must stop telling all those wild stories."
She and her husband live on twenty acres in the piney woods of Florida where she is compelled to write about far away places and people whose hearts require a voice. Their two daughters live their lives hiding from their mother, whose rampant imagination keeps their lives in constant turmoil with stories of apple-rotten characters and plots that cause the devil to smile.
