Lights, Camera, Ali!
Ali Caldwell is the daughter of millionaire Thomas Caldwell, and movie star Margo Schaefer. Her parents divorced when she was small and she lives with her father, who diligently guards the privacy of Ali and her older brother, Mark. He is so careful of their privacy, that no one even knows that Margo Schaefer has children other than the five-year-old triplets that show up everywhere with her and her second husband.
In the first book, REALITY ALI, Ali is starting boarding school, and decides that now is the time to finally try to be famous just like her mother. Without giving too much away, because if you haven't already read it, you're going to want to, and I don't want to spoil the ending for you, let's just say that things don't really go the way she had hoped.
Now we come to book two, LIGHTS, CAMERA, ALI! It's Thanksgiving break and Ali and her brother are heading to their mother's, in California, for the holiday. Ali is not looking forward to it. She has decided that fame is something she wants to stay far away from, and she knows that where her mother is, media attention is never far behind. Determined to make the most of it, however, she and her brother and friends take the triplets on an outing. Things go horribly wrong, when one of the triplets disappears. Ali needs to find her brother, and even eventually learn how to make the media work for her, instead of against her.
I'm currently working on the third book in the series, tentatively titled HONESTLY, ALI. I won't give anything away on that one, because as a work in progress, pretty much everything is subject to change.
So that is my shameless plug for my Ali books. Meet Ali, read her stories, hopefully you'll like her as much as I do.
