Author will discuss romantic suspense novel

From page A4 | January 30, 2014 |

Northern California author Sherry Joyce will discuss her novel, “The Dordogne Deception,” at an author event presented by the Friends of the Woodland Library on Thursday, Feb. 13. A members-only reception begins at 6 p.m. at the library’s Leake Center, 250 First St., and the author’s talk begins at 6:30 p.m. (Memberships may be purchased at the door.)

“The Dordogne Deception” was conceived when the tower of the French chateau where Joyce was vacationing was struck by lightning. Terrified and unable to sleep that night, she dreamed up the plot of a romantic suspense novel, inspired by extensive travel over many years throughout Europe, as well as the familiarity of living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

For her main character, Cherise Eden, Joyce drew on her experience as a vice president of human relations in the Silicon Valley. Eden is an attractive, high-profile female executive who escapes from San Francisco to a castle in southwestern France to heal the wounds from her unforeseen divorce. There, a cunning guest charms the castle’s new owner, luring her toward a deadly deception.

A retired detective residing in England’s Cotswolds investigates an improbable accidental death that leads him to the castle where he prevents a murder and discovers love in the outcome. Duplicity and murder shatter Eden’s illusions as she comes to realize decisions made during a woman’s most vulnerable moments are the most dangerous.
Joyce has enjoyed many years of creative and technical writing,from product marketing to serving as editor-in-chief of high-tech company newsletters. Her award-winning projects and articles have been featured in Gentry, Builder Architect, California Home and Design, and National Kitchen and Bath.

She is a member of Sacramento Sisters in Crime, Northern California Publishers and Authors, San Francisco Women’s Book Association and Romance Writers of America. For more information, visit www.Sherryjoyce.com and https://www.facebook.com/sherry.joyce.50.

Celebrate Love Your Library Week (Feb. 9-15) by attending Joyce’s presentation. The first 40 attendees will receive a valentine goodie bag.
