9781508793984: Best Seller List: A Dream to Die For ...

Tillery Vargas, intelligent, attractive, divorced and bored, lives with her mother in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, Georgia. Her aspirations of writing a best-selling novel were crushed after three of her manuscripts were rejected. She abandoned her dream and took a position with a popular women's magazine located in downtown Atlanta. On her way home to celebrate a promotion at work, she stopped at a local Wal-Mart where tragedy struck. Her ordeal led to unbelievable horrors at the hands of a deranged drifter. The news coverage of her abduction and rescue in a daring raid by a local sheriff's department brought her sudden fame. Tillery's dreams of writing and of romance were rekindled this new reality by handsome police detective Joe Dillard.

About the Author:

Billie J. ("B. J.") Gillum was born in a tiny log cabin in the wooded hills of northeastern Kentucky in 1938. His family moved out of the hills to a small Fleming County dairy and tobacco farm seventy miles to the west. There he learned the value and necessity of hard work and enjoyed the freedom of rural life. He also developed a vivid imagination and an acute sense of humor that finds its way into his novels today. At sixteen he moved with the family to a larger farm in southern Ohio. After two years he graduated high school and was employed by the Western Electric Company in Dayton, Ohio. His thirty-five year career with the firm was interrupted by a three year tour in the SS Marine Corps where he served in the US, Japan and Philippines. Four months before his discharge from the USMC in May of 1961, he married his high school sweetheart, Saundra Kay Grant. Three sons and thirty-five years later he retired and moved to a home on the shore of Watts Bar Lake in east Tennessee. After writing two journals to record boating trips on the TVA lake system, he was encouraged by Saundra and others to write a novel - to try his hand at a serious writing project. The result was The Erectrolite Affair, a humorous tale of a small southern town and its struggle against illicit drugs with an unusual application. Since 2004, another four novels have rapidly followed the first, and two projects are now underway.
