Summary
Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow took solace in the mystery stories she read with her devoted father, and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years. After her father's early death, at fourteen Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds twenty-six mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift. Alex writes in every spare moment, gripped by the plots and themes and characters that fill her mind. Midway through college, she has finished a novel, and manages to find a seasoned agent, then a publisher. But as she climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father's admonition: Men read crime thrillers by men only, and so Alexandra Winslow publishes under the pseudonyn Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her, creating a double life that isolates her. Her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green, and her own life as a talented young woman, expose her to the envious, the arrogant, and Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is. Always, the right time to open up seems just out of reach, and would cost her dearly. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high
Summary
Becoming a mystery writer in the style of the stories she grew up reading after her mother's abandonment, Alex comes of age in a convent orphanage before finding publishing success under a male pseudonym and becoming subject to the consequences of fame and her double life
