New Cover, New Pseudonym

Jude Pittman and I have made the decision to use a pseudonym for our McWinter Confidential series, so to avoid future confusion we have re-released the former New Directions as To Kill A Songbird, under our pseudonym. We have, of course, added a cautionary note to the book to advise readers of New Directions that this is the book previously known by that name.

(Initially published 9/2016 under the title New Directions)

Nashville songstress Marcy Fischer has been nominated for the Academy of Country Music's female vocalist of the year award, but her husband is stuck in Russia on a special assignment for the President and Marcy's been having trouble with a fan who tried to break into her house.

Kelly McWinter, a family friend, and the detective who once saved Marcy from a murder charge, receives a desperate plea from Marcy's Aunt Stella, and together with his new wife Gillian, Kelly sets out on an all expense paid Beverly Hills and Las Vegas honeymoon, all compliments of his grateful clients Mark Fischer and wife Marcy.

It's a win/win situation, guarding the beautiful songstress while attending a host of fabulous parties and having dinner with the likes of Blake Shelton. Life is good for the McWinter household. That is, until someone kidnaps Marcy's lovely young sister right out from under Gillian's nose while the two are shopping in Beverly Hills, and then all hell breaks loose when Marcy's erstwhile fan shows all the signs of turning into a fanatical killer.

Yep, Kelly McWinter is going to need a vacation from his vacation.
