That was the deal singer Lauren Logan made with her ex-boyfriend. After recording a movie soundtrack, they remained anonymous as a publicity stunt for the film. Staying under the radar was easy for Lauren, a loyal but self-doubting wife and mother living in Tampa, Florida. Her biggest challenge was choosing a dinner menu to satisfy her teenage boys and keeping the meal hot for when her workaholic husband wandered home. Until the day Academy Award nominations were announced. Suddenly, Plebeian was thrust on the world’s stage, winning an Oscar for Best Original Song.
Sudden fame has brought Lauren things she didn’t want. But it’s also brought her someone she did: Andy Hayden, the man of her dreams. Now she has a red hot career with her ex-boyfriend, a husband who hasn’t noticed, and a smoldering crush on a man she hasn’t seen in years. Unfortunately, she also has a stalker who wants her to himself.
As she struggles between her obligations and following her heart, her stage fears begin to frustrate the band while danger follows her every move. Now she must fight for her happiness, her career…and her life.
Debbie Lum has enjoyed a 28-year professional career in marketing, where she loved turning big, complicated problems into smooth, organized programs. She’s travelled from the beaches of Turkey, to the volcanoes in Italy to the bricks of Red Square, Moscow. And no one can drink more unsweetened iced tea than her.
After seeing a self-esteem campaign encouraging little girls to dream big, she wondered why not grown women too? She challenged herself to do something she knew little about: reading and writing novels.
PLEBEIAN REVEALED is her debut novel, first in the PLEBEIAN series. It’s a journey about common people launched into something new. Just like Debbie.
