What’s DEADLY NEWS About?


After a spectacular murder in the Atlanta penthouse of a national media mogul, cops scramble to solve the crime and TV stations compete for coverage.  A savvy detective and a determined female reporter team up - in more ways than one - to catch the killer and get the story.  This humorous thriller is fast-paced fun behind the scenes of TV news.


DEADLY NEWS also is the story of several strong women and their battles to succeed in life, some with good intentions, some not. And men whose ambitions get in the way. They include:


 • Bren Forrest: A woman struggling to make a success of an all-news TV network. Violence tears apart her life and her livelihood .She is tough and tested as she battles to survive in the corporate media world and in her volatile private life.


 • Cassandra Page: An ambitious, African-American journalist who covers crime and violence for a major market TV station. She and her lover, Irish-American Police Detective James Hagan, team up, determined to expose the ruthless British TV magnate who will stop at nothing to have his way with anyone who gets in his way.


 •  Lia Lee: A red hot and very cool villain.


From Atlanta to London and to the edge of the Everglades, good and bad people clash. Some live to fight another day.
