May brings flowers and sunshine (hopefully) and author
to Round Table Readers.
Marilee lives in Eastern Washington and writes both adult and young adult fiction. Her adult fiction spans both historical and contemporary romantic suspense. Her young adult works are quirky, fun, and tinged with paranormal magic.
With such an eclectic writing style, I’m sure it’ll be a fun May meeting with Marilee. Showcasing one of her adult stories, here’s the information about The Rock and Roll Queen of Bedlam (great title!):
Leggy, karaoke-signing Allegra Thome spends her days teaching dysfunctional teens and her nights with wealthy new boyfriend, Michael. The rough patch following Allegra’s divorce is over, and life is grand. But when Allegra lands in the middle of a drug bust and meets Sloan, a rough-around-the-edges DEA agent and, later that day, a kid from her class disappears, things quickly head south. Sloan, who has the tact of a roadside bomb, is attracted to Allegra and alienates Michael. To make matters worse, nobody seems to care that Allegra’s student, Sara Stepanek, is missing. Allegra’s search for Sara becomes a race against time with dead bodies piling up and her own life in peril.
