E: Espionage

Espionage fascinates me and I think the first spy I loved was Illya Kuryakin, from the "Man from U.N.C.L.E." television show. There was also James Bond, the one played by Sean Connery, and more recently, Clayton Webb, played by Steven Culp on the CBS show JAG.

With my love of spies, it's no wonder that I've written two novels involving espionage. The first published one was Love, Lies & Deceit, a romantic suspense. Against regulations, rookie CIA officer Julie McBride and her training officer, Jason Reid fell in love. But, when Jason is arrested for treason, Julie has to decide whether she believes in him enough to risk her own career and life to help him prove his innocence.

My second book involving espionage, yet to be published, is tentatively titled, CIA Man. What was supposed to be a routine assignment, protecting a journalist who over heard the sale of classified documents to a terrorist, turns out to be the most difficult of CIA officer Ethan Young's career when he discovers the reporter is Cally Hunt, his former fiancee. Ethan tries not to let his personal feelings for Cally interfere with protecting her life, but finds both tasks nearly impossible. I'm in the editing stage of this book and hope to pitch it to my publisher soon.

  4. Oh, yeah, ILYA! He's still cute, as Ducky on NCIS. Ilya was every girl's dreamboat, wasn't he?
