The Elevator . . . the work begins

Three women enter an elevator as the Tampa Bank Building closes. The first woman is Regina Rossman, the wife of Parker Rossman, an executive with an office on the thirty-first floor. Gina knows Parker is having an affair, so she’s brought a gun to murder him.

Michelle Brantley is also an executive on the thirty-first floor, and she’s pregnant with Parker Rossman’s child. He doesn’t know about the baby, so she’s on her way to tell him.

Isabel Suarez works for the building’s custodial department. She knows Mr. Rossman, too—in fact, she has just accidentally killed him.

These three women, strangers to each other, are in the elevator when an approaching hurricane cuts off power to the building, leaving the women trapped inside.

As the storm threatens to flood the streets of downtown Tampa, Isabel, Michelle, and Gina discover that it’s going to be a long and interesting weekend.

And that's all I have so far . . . along with some character cards. Time to start my plot skeleton!

Oh, my word. I love this idea! You've got me majorly hooked. Did this idea just come to you, or have you been thinking about it for a long time?

I'm hooked, too! And just how long do we have to wait to read this one?

How could anybody say Christian Fiction is boring?

Wow! Sounds exciting. I hope we can sneak peeks over your shoulder from time to time. ~~
