Cal Cunningham has written the latest Great American Novel; too bad he stole the manuscript from his dead roommate. Now if he can only keep his beautiful new wife, high-powered literary agent and the rest of America from finding out. What should be a morality tale will have you rooting for the villain all the way.

— From Deborah


Just how did Cal Cunningham -- a twenty-five-year-old bookstore stockboy who is new to Manhattan and who has never written anything -- publish a bestselling novel that sells to the movies for a million dollars?

A mysterious roommate, a timely bike accident, and the rapacious literary agent Blackie Yaeger all play a role in Cal's success.

Deception, blackmail, and murder all play a role in his desperate bid to hold on to it.

And About the Author is his first-person account of how he performed this remarkable feat.
