Barbara Norton - Breaking News
Barbara Norton will be appearing to sign copies of her political thriller, Breaking News.
In Breaking News, disgraced news anchor Jillian Rain takes a last-chance job as a White House correspondent with D.C.’s 24-hour Breaking News Network, rekindling her on-again/off-again romance with News Director Maks Vladikov.
As she covers the story of the mysterious crash of the VP’s helicopter and of a dysfunctional commander-in-chief, her list of suspects trying to bring down the president grows. The danger becomes personal when a man Jillian used to love begins stalking her, Maks’ ex-wife suddenly reappears, and a Russian mobster Maks helped put in jail comes looking for revenge.
The novel is the first in a series of Jillian Rain mystery/thrillers. It builds on Barbara’s life-long interest in journalism and in the lives and high-stakes drama surrounding the people who live and work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A former advertising creative manager, editor, and copywriter, and an accomplished public speaker and editorial cartoonist, Ms. Norton makes her home in Newark, but is a frequent visitor to Delaware beaches.
The signing will take place on Saturday, December 8th, from 1 until 3 p.m.
