Jamie D. Lane is many things: multi-talented, handsome-and the most sought-after pop star in the world. But there's one thing he "isn't"-happy. At the height of his singing career, a family tragedy stops him in his tracks. And in an effort to settle a private matter and put the past behind him, Jamie cuts his trademark blonde curls, assumes a new identity, and secretly slips away from his celebrity lifestyle and heads to the Pacific Northwest "in cognito." But what he finds in small town Washington could open up Jamie's future-and change him forever.
A teacher to inner city kids and former high school track star, Anne Stewart had once believed she could change the world. Then a near-fatal accident left her grappling with both the devastating effects of head injury and deep bitterness toward the drunk driver who crippled her. When a man she knows as "Joe Bradley" hits town, however, he unexpectedly helps to restore her self-confidence and passion for life. But when the scope of "The Celebrity"'s deception becomes clear to Anne, will it be too much to forgive?"
Can "The Celebrity "Reveal His True Identity-
Without Losing Everything?
Robert Elmer’s debut novel is The Duet. He has also written five popular youth series, including HyperLinkz, with combined sales of over 650,000 copies. He formerly served as editor for a small weekly newspaper in Washington state, in a town much like the setting for The Celebrity.
