Rebecca Laclair describes the way music speaks to us, changes us, and validates us in a way that any music lover immediately recognizes.
Rebecca used to think writing was an impossible dream. A Liberal Arts major and graphic design grad, Rebecca rode a motorcycle from an engineering job to owning a wine label design company before discovering that drama is lot more interesting when it’s on the page. Rebecca has always been fascinated by the concept of turning life’s obstacles into gifts, finding ways to upgrade the mundane to the magical.
A magazine editor, Rebecca has short stories published in Gravel, Wordhaus, and Mixtape Methodology, and blogs about writing. She also mentors teen writers. Never further than a walk from the Pacific Ocean, Rebecca migrated to the West Coast, living in Vancouver, Canada, then San Diego and Orange County, California, landing on a forested island in the Pacific Northwest where she is at work on her next novel.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Shelby Rey can hear you like a song. With one touch, she’s in tune with your every hope, every secret. When a celebrity psychiatrist takes an interest in her case, Shelby comes face-to-face with Zac Wyatt, the lead singer of the world-famous rock band, Grounder. For Zac, success isn’t enough though. He wants a shot at his first solo album, fame above and beyond Grounder.But the genius behind every one of Grounder’s hits is Stanford Lysandre, their heroin-addicted, self-taught lead guitarist. Zac is so jealous he could kill him. Determined to win, Zac realizes that Shelby can do what he can’t—hear the music inside him, uncover his feelings, and help him create his own singular style.
As Shelby gets closer to the band, she discovers Stanford’s secret to writing his music. It’s a power very familiar to her, but life-affirming and not destructive. Can Shelby hide her connection to Zac’s enemy?
