/a short piece about the book
Not only is she the author of adult fiction, but native New Yorker, April Alisa Marquette, is an editor. She garnered her love for reading from her mother, a songwriter/recording artist. Ever active in the arts, mom often read to April and her siblings when they were quite young. From her father who pastored, she learned to research/write, a prelude to her realistic fiction.
Whether she's penning fiction or non-fiction, she'd like to make readers pause, and think. She also offers hope. Happily married, she does not succumb to the notion that every story should have an upbeat ending. However, while creating her unforgettable works, she would like for readers to glimpse light at the end of the tunnel. As a reader herself, April has a soft spot for other readers. It is why she is most interested in what they have to say. Therefore on the 'Contact' page, she welcomes comments. And don't forget to check out her videos!
While attending college she enjoyed Creative Writing and Literature electives. Thus, the path for her life was charted. However, on the journey to becoming an author, she worked at Manhattan publishing houses and on Wall Street, for one of Americas most recognized real estate tycoons. This author whose women's fiction has been called 'spicy' has also worked in the commercial technology arena.
About the Book
In Improbable, a story of love and coming of age, readers get to watch Gemma and Jeremy grow up and become a power couple. Undeniably riveting and sexy, readers will never see certain twists or turns coming…
She is a lingerie model, one that fuels the dreams of millions of men the world over. Second generation Hollywood, she becomes a successful actress and a chart-topping movie producer. Her name is Gemma Janelle, and rumor has it that three influential men are deeply in love with her. This is her story.
He is über sexy. With a French accent and a fiefdom fit for a king, he alone is the heir to two fortunes. He is Jeremy Baptiste Harden. Brooding and often filled with angst, he is the man atop Gemma’s A-list. Yet there are times when he would rather not love her. He is also sick of seeing her likeness in the tabloids – with other men, but he remains a slave to his heart.
She all but clawed her way out of a dark past; now she wants to live in the light, the spotlight to be exact. However, Gemma Janelle occupies that spot. Fresh from the backwoods, bottled-blond Ashlee is nobody’s bimbo. Boobtaculous and determined, she vows to break Jeremy away from that black chick Gemma. Then Ashlee will get everything she has ever dreamed of, right?
See how feelings can become twisted and thereby take a wrong turn – or two.
