A few dark secrets are not going to get in the way of Merle LaBrune’s ambition to become a latter-day Aphrodite, goddess of love.
It is 1984, the year of the Los Angeles Olympics, and Merle LaBrune plans to remain young for however long it takes for her to ascend a pantheon of Hollywood idols and be worshipped as a goddess. However, she has the unerring feeling she is about to be dropped from the long running soap in which she stars.
Her life is further complicated by her live-in lover’s decision to bring his daughter, Heidi, to come live with them. Heidi does her utmost to make Merle’s life a living hell.
In spite of so many cards stacked against her, Merle almost pulls it off in her ambition for godhood, banged up in jail as she atones for the sins of mankind, but her delusions are finally shattered when she is confronted with her true identity.
Could Merle LaBrune actually be Adolf Hitler’s wartime lover, Eva Braun?
I write intuitively, throwing scenes and ideas together until they come together to form a story, lending my work a sense of realism it wouldn’t otherwise have had. In that regard, my books effectively write themselves.
