One of you crazy kids suggested in your iTunes review of The Rock Star’s Daughter that I write a book about Betsey Norfleet transferring to Treadwell Academy.
I have to confess, I had a brief inspiration to do this while I was writing the book, and then forgot all about it.
But now I am totally in love with the idea! Those of you who’ve started reading The Believer’s Daughter (don’t worry, it’ll be on iTunes soon, my publisher tells me) know that I introduce a ton of new characters in that book, all of whom will have their own stories told eventually (if I start drinking more Red Bull and calling into work more frequently)!
A few of those characters are…
- Emma Jeffries, the main character of Book 3, who suffers from significant body image disorders as she tries to advance her modeling career.
- Juliette Santangello, the daughter of an investment banker in Long Island who’s convicted of running a Ponzi scheme.
- Lauren Glover, a senior at Treadwell on a scholarship, who finds out a terrible secret about her family (and how it binds her to another student at Treadwell).
- Ameera Thompson, the daughter of a high-powered record label executive.
Why not Betsey Norfleet? What could Betsey possibly do to get kicked out of her private school in New York and end up at Treadwell? And how would the lovable troublemaker behave when her bad-influence older sister wasn’t around?
