From the author who taught you to expect the unexpected...an intriguing tale about families, fiction, and what to do when life veers wildly off script.

It begins...when a smug college student challenges a best-selling novelist to write something "more personal." It begins...when a mother finds her troubled son slumped unconscious outside her house. It begins...when fiction and reality blur, and the novelist finds herself caught somewhere in the middle of it all. Where does it end? That all depends on who is telling the story...

Blackwell North Amer
What happens when a writer's story begins to change the story of her life? To the world she's Jordan Casey, creator of the wildly popular series of novels featuring international spy Rex Tower. To her family she's Jordan Casey Kerrigan, a loving wife and mom with an almost-empty nest, and an unexpectedly successful midlife career.
To the diverse class of community college students she's agreed to take on for a fiction-writing course, she's a complex teacher determined to prove that with a plan and some dedication, any one of them can do what she does.
To show what she means - and to respond to a challenge from an egotistical student - she decides to actually write a novel for the class. But not a Rex Tower novel. Not a spy blockbuster. Something more personal, something closer to home. Something that touches her faith and might even speak to her deeply troubled younger son, Zack.
But something strange is happening in the midst of it all. As she struggles to keep the novel on track, Jordan starts to realize it holds a deeper mystery than she could ever plot. And she and Zack are part of it.
The outcome is something the novelist could never anticipate...or dare to dream. And the truth is stranger than any fiction.
