Genre: Spy Thriller
Jordan Shaw knows the only way to stop the man hunting her is to kill him. She also knows the other men who came after her are dead, some of their blood is on her hands, and she wouldn’t have survived this long without the help of the intriguing and secretive Chase Hudson. Even though she isn’t sure she can trust Chase, she believes she needs him to discover the truth.
Two days before, life was pretty good as she backpacked around Europe with her best friend. Now, everything has changed and she may not even live through the night. What started as a summer trip of self-discovery has become a dangerous journey across three countries as Jordan is forced into a world few know exist and even fewer survive. A clandestine international organization that will let nothing stand in their way has put a price on her head. Despite all the uncertainty, there are two things that she is absolutely sure of; she has one chance to out-maneuver a world class killer, and she has to make that move right now.
The best part about writing a book
Is sharing something that I love to read and that I am excited about with other people. I love to hear what their thoughts are, what they enjoyed about it and how it made them feel. I also enjoy it when people say that they couldn’t put it down!
I like to talk about the writing process and what it was like putting Trigger together. How I had to learn how to write, how to edit and then how to submit the book for publication. A lot of people don’t know or have never thought about how to write a book or what it takes to get a book published so it is interesting to see their reaction to how difficult and time consuming it can be.
It is also fun to see how thrilled people are for me and this accomplishment and how much they want to read the book and to talk to me about it. Writing and trying to get the book published has been something I have been immersed in for a while now so to get a fresh perspective on it and to see people be so excited about a book being published makes me feel good and helps validate all of the hard work that it took to get Trigger published.
