The Right Time

Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the
mysteries she reads 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 untimely 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 pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known 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.
