After being betrayed by a close friend, Aubrey agrees to tell her exclusive story to CMT's Inside NashVegas host Beth Rose. Little does she know her future depends on reconciling with her past. But Aubrey's country world is rocked when Inside NashVegas host Scott Vaughn, a former love interest, shows up to hold the interview instead of Beth Rose. It's too late for the diva to change her mind. Scott's gentle manner and insightful interviewing wins Aubrey's trust, and ultimately her heart.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a 40-something pastor's wife living in central Florida. I graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Journalism. I worked in the corporate software world for seventeen years. Did everything from travel as a trainer to project manager. I love writing fiction. It's the best job ever. I love reading, photography, animals... wait, I sound like I'm trying for Miss America. Well, that's a little about myself.
What was your motivation behind this project? My editor and I wanted to do a second NashVegas book. Since the first story, Lost In NashVegas deals with a woman coming to Nashville to become a songwriter, we thought we'd look at the music business from the other side. So, I came up with superstar, Aubrey James. I read bios of all kinds of great music artist. Studied the record label industry as well as televison production. Then I hashed out Aubrey's story. It was hard in some ways since I've never been a country diva, but I also had a great time writing this book. Shout out to Christian artist Kim Hill for letting me pick her brain.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I tried to create a great read about a flawed, but lovely character who finds truth by healing her past. While I wrote about a superstar, I think people will relate to her convictions and struggles.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? So many, so little space. I admire people who work hard, who stick with a project or job even after failing. We never succeed if we don't fail now and then. Susan May Warren, Christine Lynxwiler, Colleen Coble, Tracey Bateman, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt are a few of my favorite authors and friends.
