PRESS RELEASE: University’s All American Quarterback arrested in sexual assault and attempted rape

City police confirmed today the university’s all American quarterback Dante Knight was arrested at an off campus fraternity party and charged with the attempted rape of a guest at the party.  Coach Knight could not be reached for comment concerning his son’s arrest or consequences relative to the team.  Sources say video evidence exists of multiple attacks over the last two years.

That’s some way to start out the explanation of a bonus chapter to a college age romantic suspense novel.

When Kathy Clark and her husband Bob Wernly, co-writer of the contemporary romantic suspense series Scandals released book #2 in the series, Killer Date, the story of three of the Scandals Investigations Agency members was in the background of the main story line of the book.  “We started out with a view of the headline and worked backward to the subplot in the Killer Date book,” Bob discussed the plotting process.  “Our books deal with life as it comes at you every day and this is a part of college life today,” Kathy emphasized.

“We couldn’t let such a rich story go to waste and our readers really wondered what happened to Killeen and Dallas when the agency, during the storyline of Killer Date, was hired to bring the university quarterback to justice for raping the client’s daughter,” Kathy explained.

The Scandals series is set in Austin, Texas and is through the eyes of each of the five children of the agency’s late owner and proves An Inheritance Changes Everything. “The first book is about the setup, who their father was, what happened to him and the background on his college age kids who never knew of him or each other until his estate was settled.  The first book really provided the depth of character and background the reader needs to know to follow each of them in their own book,” Kathy said.

In the first book, Due Dates, Killeen’s life is in shambles.  No job, no home, no boyfriend, her scholarship in jeopardy and a baby on the way has shattered her plans.  A surprise inheritance offers her a second chance.  “The series is structured in a way that after the first book Killeen’s work at the agency is in the background to second book’s storyline which is centered on Reno Marks and their newest client Jenny. But we kept the reader up to speed on milestones in the case being handled by Killeen and Dallas,” Bob explained.

The single bonus chapter goes into life at a university fraternity party where the suspected rapist is the star quarterback.  “This undercover activity was the only way to get the goods on this guy,” Bob said.  “The entire football season hangs in the balance at the school so getting a consensus to investigate the charges was out of the question.”

“What’s really cool is that the members of our Thrill Of Suspense Street Team received this exclusive bonus chapter today as part of their free membership,” Kathy summarized why they did this.

All of Kathy’s books are available through either through their main author site at http://www.nightwriter93.com or exclusively though Amazon.  A New York Times Best Seller and USA Today recommended author she has received nearly twenty awards in the past two years from a variety of international book competitions.
