I am a writer.
For ten years, I had the great happiness of writing with Jon Guttman. In that time, we wrote two novels, one of which is “Madame President,” and we became the closest of friends. Though our writing partnership ended abruptly with Jon’s unexpected death in 2014, I have a permanent reminder of Jon’s talent and the delight he took in his imagination and in the written word with “Madame President” and with our as-yet unpublished book, “The Ninth Parallel.” We were thrilled with the response to “Madame President” and hope you will decide to read it!
I have written about Jon in my blog post, “Remembering Jon.”
On the night of her fourth State of the Union Address, President Kate MacIntyre is the target of an assassination attempt that claims the life of her Vice-President and sets in motion the ultimate crime of opportunity.
What begins with a Hezbollah plot quickly becomes a heart-stopping twenty-day race against time as the President’s inner circle fights to protect her from enemies both known and unknown. From Beirut to New York, Mexico City to south Texas, this taut, tense political drama unfolds across a broad landscape of politics and ideology as it moves breathlessly toward its final startling revelation.
