She Writes Press News: Announcing Watchdogs, by Patricia Watts

In 1991, Julia Wilkes, a zealous young reporter, covered the murder of a teenage girl in Fairbanks, Alaska. Julia’s newspaper stories relentlessly linked the girl’s boyfriend, Josh Harrison, to the crime---up to the day that the basketball star shot himself in the head. For Julia, Josh’s suicide confirmed his guilt.

 

In 2011, Julia (Wilkes) Silver, a Seattle journalism professor and syndicated columnist, is back in Fairbanks on a sabbatical just in time to hear about a serial killer’s confession to the long-ago slaying. With Josh exonerated, Julia is haunted by whether her stories pushed him to end his life. Now a stalker is trying to end Julia’s life; suspects and motives abound. Julia’s enraged a pro-life group with a column, she’s drawn a jealous woman’s wrath, and she’s crossed paths with a demented homeless person---or perhaps someone from the past has come to collect vengeance for Josh’s death.

 

While Julia dodges danger, she pursues love and red-hot passion with businessman R.L., who carries his own guilt for Josh’s death. 

 

Julia faces her stalker in a fiery showdown and finds redemption for her past. She heads into a future with R. L. that promises heart-racing possibilities of a better kind.

Patricia Watts is a former reporter and editor with newspapers in Texas, Hawaii, and Alaska. She lives in Anchorage, where she is a human rights investigator. Her first novel, Ever Rose, the story of how a one hundred-year-old tale from Alaska’s gold rush changes the lives of a modern-day family, was published as an e-book on Amazon in March 2012.
