Jeannie Faulkner Barber & Ann Alan Authors- SCENT OF DOUBLE DECEPTION


by Jeannie Faulkner Barber & Ann Alan

Two women, two idenities, one lie.

An innocent charade catapults Clair Matthews and Kelley Malone into mystery and deception.

An ocean away, a decade’s old plan is set in motion, and six lives interface through conflict and romance. Whom, if any, will succumb to a murderous plot of betrayal?

Jeannie Faulkner Barber was born and raised in Marshall, Texas. Writing is one of two passions, the other being drag racing. She drives her own race car and met her husband, Monte, at the track. She is an active member of the East Texas Writers Association. She and Monte live in Kilgore, Texas and have three grown sons and nine grandchildren.

Ann Alan attended college in Oklahoma before moving to Texas. She balances her work at a financial institution with her writing. She has two grown children and several grandchildren and lives with her husband and dog.
