Whoop! Not only is it Nikolaus day today, but it’s also launch day over at Sapphire Star Publishing! Today we are celebrating the launch of Finding Claire Fletcher by Lisa Regan!
Lisa is visiting over all the way from across the pond to introduce her debut masterpiece… but first of all, she’d like to tell us 10 things people might be surprised to know about her! Give it up for… Lisa Regan!
10 Things People Would Be Surprised To Know About Me
1.) I love romantic comedies. Love, love, love them! I know they are silly and unrealistic and not characteristic of real relationships but they make me all happy. I can’t get enough.
2.) I also love revenge movies like Man On Fire, Italian Job and Count of Monte Cristo.
3.) I once boxed a girl in a bar for money. I won $50.00.
4.) I studied martial arts for 10 years and used to teach children. It was awesome.
5.) My favorite class in my graduate program (which was in Curriculum & Instruction) was School Law.
6.) I have all 10 seasons of the show Friends and whenever I am feeling bummed out, I watch some of them. I don’t know why but that show cheers me up. My favorite seasons are 5 and 8.
7.) My feet are always freezing. I frequently steal my husband’s giant man-socks and wear them over top of my own socks.
8.) I don’t eat lettuce. It doesn’t agree with my stomach. So in salads I substitute fresh spinach.
9.) My favorite book as a child was Sesame Street Grover’s The Monster At The End of This Book—it scared the crap out of me every time and yet I wanted to read it again and again!
10.) I hate cooking but I love to bake.
Well, wow, Lisa ~ what can I say! Loveya, is what springs to mind. Am with you on the romcoms, obviously, love them. Can’t believe you won $50 boxing a girl in a bar, how did that come about?? Am neither here or there about the lettuce and would adore some instruction from you in martial arts. GREAT post, thank you. Now let’s meet your book!
Finding Claire Fletcher
Newly divorced and with his career in jeopardy, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a beautiful woman he meets at a bar. The next morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving nothing behind but an address and a decade-old mystery. The address leads to the Fletcher family home where Claire’s siblings inform Connor that their fifteen-year-old sister was abducted from a city street ten years ago and is presumed dead.
During those ten years, Claire endured the cruel torture and depravity of the man who abducted her. Paralyzed by fear and too ashamed to return to her family, Claire is resigned to her life as Lynn, the identity her abductor forced upon her. Every time she attempts escape or betrays him in the smallest way, someone dies. Even now, her clandestine run-in with Connor Parks may have put his life at risk, as well as the lives of her family.
Connor is convinced that not only is Claire Fletcher alive, but that she is also the woman he met at the bar. Driven to see her again, he begins his own investigation, off the clock and without the police department’s consent. He is determined to find her and unravel the mystery of her abduction and odd reemergence. But finding Claire Fletcher proves more dangerous than he anticipates. In fact, it may be deadly.
