The story is about murder, of course: Lily's twin brother is murdered, and she enlists the help of three teacher colleagues at her school. They pursue justice, confronting local police, the FBI, NYC mobsters, the CIA, and even the Russian Mafia. The story, as I worked more on it, evolved into a crime thriller--but with heroes from the unlikeliest of places, the teacher's lounge!
Once you publish your book, the work continues. Marketing Lily's Payback has been a different kind of hurdle for me.
