Here’s what I’m working on now.

Ashley thinks her sister, Megan, is coming over for dinner to catch up. But when she arrives, Megan is gaunt, pale, and visibly afraid. Her boyfriend, Gary, breaks the news: Megan has a severe kidney disease. They want Ashley to donate a kidney.
Medical testing and confirms that Ashley is a near-perfect match, the next best thing to having an identical twin donor. But it’s not as easy as going to the doctor and filling out the forms. Crippling panic attacks leave Ashley curled in a ball, or, worse, bruised and bloody when she tries to leave home.
In fact, Ashley hasn’t left her house in four years. Even if she does figure out a way to get out, it’s unlikely she’ll pass the required psychological evaluation.
Ashley can’t fix her problems without first acknowledging them, which is hard to do considering how much more successful her life is since she withdrew from society. She likes the control she has. She’s built successful business, renovated her house, and, thanks to her treadmill, is in the best physical shape of her life.
But she is Megan’s best, and maybe only, hope.
There is no more time for denial. Megan’s disease progresses faster than even the doctors could have predicted and Ashley has to make a decision that will change both her and her sister’s lives forever.
When Melissa lands her dream job, working for one of the top artist managers in Nashville, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot. As she proves herself and her responsibilities grow, she gets a peek “behind the curtain.” Things at the company are not as perfect as they seem. When she’s accused of stealing from one of her bands, Melissa has to chose between defending herself and defending her mentor. Either way, she may never get another opportunity in the music industry.
It was just another reality show. Until one of the contests is killed on live TV.. Now the police have to determine if it was murder, or just a horrible accident.
