Author Liza O'Connor's Public Secrets

 Welcome Liza O'Connor!
  Liza is stopping by to tell us about her Sci Fi Romance AI series.

Public Secrets
Book 1 of the AI Sci-Rom Series
Liza O’Connor

Carla Simon is a best-selling novelist besieged by death threats and lawsuits because her stories keep turning out to be true. She is considered an extraordinary researcher, uncovering facts unknown by field experts.
The truth is far simpler and more disturbing. Carla has a software program that “fixes” her mistakes and rewrites her novels so they are error-proof both in presentation and in content. The result is beautifully written and completely accurate stories about real people and events.
Some of those people want her silenced forever. When a woman, mistaken for Carla, turns up dead in New Zealand, she must face the hard truth about her program. But first she has to survive the assassin who has never failed to deliver on a contract.

The man stood with the reporters, waiting for her. They had assured him she was on the plane. He had studied the picture from her latest book’s dust-jacket, so he felt confident he could find her. He had an assistant watching the car rental counter where she held a reservation. He could have waited for her there, but he was always careful, always covering the angles. The mass of reporters gave him better coverage.
He prided himself on his precise planning. It was why he could charge so much. He had a perfect record of eliminations and never once had the police called him in for questioning. He would have been concerned when she hadn’t left with the first-class passengers, but then neither had the other celebrity, Chad Tyler. They must have decided to wait until the plane had cleared out.
He grew a bit restless as the gate area filled with the annoying singing choir students, but soon enough they had cleared the area and made their noisome way to customs. He surged with the reporters as Chad Tyler entered, but didn’t follow the mob when they left the gate. Instead, he sat and waited for the plane’s final passenger. It wasn’t until the flight attendants closed the gate that he realized he had somehow let her escape. He called his backup guy watching the rental car line. She hadn’t claimed her car yet. He still had time to find her.
With his fake New Zealand passport, he breezed through customs and joined the even larger group of reporters waiting outside customs. Again, he studied the people as they slowly made their way through. If only he had a list of people entering the country, but that would take days to obtain.
He had to suffer through the singing choir group again, wishing that someone would pay him to eliminate the whole lot of the annoying little cretins.
The jarring ring of his cell phone interrupted his thoughts. There was a single woman, blonde, in her early forties, standing in the car rental line. The man shook his head in disgust. He didn’t know how he had missed her, but fortunately, his careful planning had compensated for the slip.
 She was still in line when he arrived. He now understood why he hadn’t recognized her. The dust jacket picture was obviously a glamor shot from many years prior. Yet the faint hint of past beauty still resided beneath the double chins and loose skin. As she approached the counter, his assistant, dressed as a janitor, moved in closer to verify they had the right woman. He watched as the man looked at his watch, picked up his broom and left. He smiled. That was the signal he wanted.

About Liza
Liza O’Connor was raised badly by feral cats, left the South/Midwest and wandered off to find nicer people on the east coast. There she worked for the meanest man on Wall Street, while her psychotic husband tried to kill her three times. (So much for finding nicer people.) Then one day she declared enough, got a better job, divorced her husband, and fell in love with her new life where people behaved nicely. But all those bad behaviors have given her lots of fodder for her books. Please buy these books, because otherwise, she’ll become grumpy and write troubled novels instead. They will likely traumatize you.
