Secrets - S.L. Pierce

S.L. Pierce spent ten years in college earning a PhD in engineering before realizing she would rather be a writer.  She now lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.  She is always at work on her next novel.

Product description:

Secrets...we all have them
A former government assassin...
Two men who weren't supposed to be seen together...
A cop who won't let go...
High tech industrial espionage....
Secrets is a fast paced thriller that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Gwen Michaels moved to California two years ago to start fresh, hoping her past could stay secret forever. When a hired killer shows up, she assumes her cover is blown. But when it turns out the man knows nothing of her past, the search is on for who wants her dead, and why.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
I think there are two things readers will really like. One, the main character, Gwen Michaels, is a strong female all the way through the book.  No getting caught by the bad guy at the end.  The second thing is the fast pace.  When I read, I tend to skim a lot of the descriptive stuff, so in Secrets I left a lot of that out and focused on the mystery and the characters.  

Q: Why did you go indie?
For the freedom and control.  I can finish a book on Wednesday and have it for sale by Saturday.  From what I've heard about traditional publishers, it can be a year or more before your book is published.  I also love that my book remains what I wanted it to be.  No one is telling me to change it.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
My all time favorite author is Lee Child.  I really love his Jack Reacher character.  Another favorite is Harlen Coben.  Nobody takes a little event and turns it into a can't put it down mystery like he can.
