Walnut Springs Press. (October 31, 2012)

He was the corporation’s prized hit man–until he refused an  assignment. Now, he’s going to find it’s a lot easier to kill a man than to keep him alive.

Assassin Antony Danic has never killed an innocent man. At least the corporation he works for has never given him a reason to think otherwise — until now. Reeling from a series of demanding assignments, Antony is desperate for some downtime. As he sits on a beach in Tahiti watching his wife play in the ocean, a messenger from his employer delivers a death threat. Suddenly, the hunter has become the hunted. While Antony struggles to find a way out of his “til death do us part” contract, he’s faced with the decision of a lifetime: kill another man who may be innocent, or do what’s right — even if it puts his family in jeopardy.

With a combination of expert storytelling and imaginative plotting, Emergence will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read them. –Tristi Pinkston, author of the Secret Sisters Mysteries

About the author

C. Michelle Jefferies practically grew up in a library. The oldest daughter of four, she spent hours devouring books with her mother. When she was ten, she realized that she wanted to write stories like the science fiction books she loved to read. In high school, she met another writer that inspired her to write a novel instead of just short stories. She finished that 189 page handwritten novel the summer of her junior year.

A mother of seven, she put her writing on the back burner while she focused on raising her young children, and volunteering as a breastfeeding counselor in her community. When her children were old enough for her to spend a few hours on the computer, without them burning the house down, she returned to writing and hasn’t stopped since. Often writing or editing with a baby in her arms or under her feet.

Married to the guy her high school boyfriend introduced her to; she claims the last 20 + years as her education and mission experience. With a love for natural mothering, and a passion for secret agents and all things Asian she writes about bad boys turned good and fantasy of the urban type. All while beating herself up three times a week in Karate class as she works toward her black belt in Tang Soo Do.
