Robin Mulcahey always dreamed of being a big-time actress. In college, she took countless drama classes and finally snagged the coveted lead of Maggie in Tennessee Williams's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Now, six years later, she's one of the country's hottest soap-opera stars. She's just won a Day-time Emmy for her portrayal of "South Riding's" bad girl, and now, when it seemed life couldn't be any more perfect, she's wed Declan Blair, the hottest up-and-coming Irish film actor.

So, what's the problem?

Robin Mulcahey is dead. Killed in a devastating car wreck in 1996 while riding with her best friend, Amy Shiley, her life should have ended there. Amy, battered beyond recognition in the accident, makes a bold decision and steps into the role. But things aren't always as they appear and despite her glamorous life, Amy's never been able to forget the love she shared with Paul Mulcahey–Robin's older brother. A love now forbidden...

From the Author:

Hello, Readers. I'm thrilled about my new hardcover, UNDERSTUDY, and I hope you will be, too. I had a great time writing about Amy, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, who covets her best friend's life and family. When fate gives her a choice to actually live Robin's life, she discovers that living a lie can have consequences far worse than she can ever imagine. Even realizing Robin's dream of becoming an accomplished day-time soap star can't assuage the guilt she feels at living a life that doesn't belong to her. She is caught up in the ultimate masquerade, playing the role of a lifetime twenty-four-seven. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

In addition to her writing career, she has worked as a medical technician, a librarian, an executive secretary, and a receptionist for a member of Congress on Capitol Hill. When she's not writing, her most favorite thing to do in the world is downhill skiing.

She considers Picabo Street her personal heroine, and if she wasn't a writer, she'd love to be a ski racer.
