Synopsis:
While battling writer's block, a reclusive author employs questionable tactics to gain more time for her next

The questionable tactics of her past have left her isolated and now she seeks atonement by writing her own
story.

secret, but can't seem to muster up the courage and find the right words.

typist job with a legendary author and ends up becoming indispensable.

An English professor and established author, Redding has a soft (and kinky) spot for younger women. He
doesn't pass up a chance for a love affair with some of his most attractive students. His true motivation though
is his quest for juicy material for his future books.

Trudy is an established publisher and a business woman. A feminist type, she prefers to work with female
authors.

YOUNG KENYA, 25-30, BLACK FEMALE
