JANET W. BUTLER couldn't decide whether to be a musician or a writer—so she's elected to do both. After earning her degree in Music Theory from Roosevelt University, she married a percussionist, sang in a madrigal group, discovered the world of opera choruses…and scribbled stories, something she's been obsessive about since the age of ten. She presently belongs to both Catholic Writers Guild and the IPFW Choral Union, in which, at times, she sings soprano notes only dogs can hear. ?
Two of her biggest thrills so far have been winning the Golden Heart in 1998 for her traditional romance, Rainman's Bride — and both serving as vocal coach and singing the role of Mother Abbess in a local production of The Sound of Music in the spring of 2001.
Originally from Chicago, she's a transplant to northeast Indiana, where she lives with her husband, Patrick, daughter, Jessica, and Cassie and Gilbert, SRC (Spoiled Rotten Cats).
"Help him…or watch him die." Amanda Sullivan's not sure the voice she hears is real…but the danger to her mentor, Dr. Lachlan MacAndrews, certainly is. Can she stop it before it destroys both of them?
Professor Lachlan MacAndrews is in trouble: books go missing from his office, then reappear…his departed assistant's glove appears from nowhere…and a new doctoral fellow is a dead ringer -- no pun intended -- for his previous assistant. Is Lachlan being haunted by the ghost of Annie Cooper, the woman whose death he still blames on himself… is he losing his mind…or worse?
Amanda Sullivan considers herself lucky, indeed, to have a doctoral fellowship at Carlyle College with a man she's attracted to on myriad levels. Then, she starts to wonder. She's unnerved that the late Annie Cooper, a stranger, could have been her twin. But nothing can prepare her -- a feet-on-the-ground, practical soul -- for hearing voices and seeing visions warning of impending disaster.
Neither of them knows they have a mutual enemy who will stop at nothing -- forgery, double-dealing, even murder -- to keep them from discovering the truth… Plus Novel - 70,000 - 99,999
