Synopsis

A contemporary romantic novel set in Washington, D.C., THE REAL DEAL tells the story of Quinn Star, a young woman who has worked as an F.B.I. agent for six years. Tired of the old boy mentality there, she quits her job and pursues her dream of being a Secret Service agent. With impressive F.B.I. credentials and a recommendation from her aunt who is an old friend of the First Lady, Quinn lands a job at the White House guarding the President. But all appears not to be well there. The President is kept away from the public and from his own wife by a small group of Presidential advisors. Quinn discovers that her former boss at the F.B.I., Ezra "Puff" Lapufsky with whom she had a brief volatile romance, is keeping her under surveillance. What's going on? Quinn soon discovers that Puff suspects the President is suffering from Alzheimer's disease and a cabal of ruthless advisors is keeping this a secret in order to commandeer the Executive Branch for their nefarious purposes. With help from Puff, her aunt and the First Lady, Quinn flushes out the villains, safeguards the life of the President, saves her country and finds love and happiness with her former boss.

About the Author

Self-described as someone who can scribble notes and tell great stories, author Fern Michaels, aka Mary Ruth Kuczkir, is a very prolific writer having written 147 books, with 90 being on the New York Times best sellers list. She was born in Pennsylvania, coming into this world as "a dinky little thing", as her father called her. She spent the early part of her adult life becoming a wife and mother of five children. After her children were grown, she separated from her husband, who was a very negative person, and began putting pen to paper to begin her writing career. She had always loved books, and writing one seemed to be the best chance for her to make her own way through the rest of her life. Her first manuscript was not published, but the second attempt was, and so began her illustrious career.

Her successful career allowed her to put all five children through college, on her own, which she claims is one of her most proud accomplishments. She says that when all is considered, family is the most important thing. Fern also bought a beautiful old (300 year old) plantation in South Carolina, where she still lives today. Her grandmother gave her very sage advice many years ago, which she lives by today.......when God is good to you, you have to give back. She developed the Fern Michaels Foundation which grants four scholarships to deserving students. She also opened a pre-school and day care center for single moms who are having a hard time supporting their family.

The quote that best describes is a Dutch saying.......If you can't whistle on your way to work, you don't belong in that job. She follows by saying, "I whistle all day long".
