The Deception

As I was finishing the last few pages of my novel, THE DECEPTION, Hawk Maddox and Kate Gallagher’s story, I got an interesting phone call.  I’m fortunate to be represented by a literary agency in New York as well as an agency in Hollywood.

Since I love movies, I’ve always wanted to see one of my books made into a feature film.  The Hollywood agency phoned about my novel BEYOND REASON.  The story is set in Texas, an action adventure that revolves around the rivalry between Carly Drake, who inherits her grandfather’s failing trucking firm, and powerful, multimillionaire Lincoln Cain, her number one competitor.

Worse yet, Carly needs Linc’s help to find the men who are willing to kill to keep her from making Drake Trucking successful again.

Big money is involved.  And very big danger.

The transaction involving the rights was exciting from beginning to end, with David Haring at TinRes Entertainment making the offer, several agents negotiating the terms,and me thrilled to have a chance to see one of my books made into a film.  Most likely, the story will be a made-for-TV movie, but it is also optioned with the possibility of a major motion picture or TV series.  I would love to see 6’5” Lincoln Cain on a weekly TV show!

Once the deal was completed, I went back to work on THE DECEPTION, the paperback was released on April 28th.  I hope you will take a look at it and that you will also keep an eye out for Linc and Carly’s movie.  It takes years to complete a film but I promise to keep you posted on details as they come in.

Till then happy reading and all best wishes,

Kat
