I have sold two books to Harlequin's new action-adventure romance line, Bombshell! The first book will be out in late 2005 and the second in spring 2006. Wow! WOW!
These will be under the pen name Cate Dermody, and the story concept is thus:
Alisha McAleer, CIA agent, writes a private, quasi-legal personal journal of her missions before doing her official CIA report. She takes the journal to a bank in whatever city she's in, opens a safety-deposit box under her current alias, and leaves the manuscript there. The series, called "The Strongbox Chronicles", tells some of Alisha's adventures as she wrote and experienced them; later books will be chronicles left by Alisha's proteges.
I am *really* looking forward to writing these! *bounces*!
