Katie is a young girl with a secret. From the age of nine she has been severely abused by a vicious stepfather. To survive the brutality she develops a rich and intense fantasy life in which she spends a great deal of her time. At the age of twelve she sees rockstar Zackery Kaine on American Bandstand and sets into motion a plan to meet him to see if he can help end her hellish home life. ~ Inside her invented world she meets Blake Elliott, the clone of Zak, her rockstar. He takes on the role of protector until the night Katie meets her flesh-and-blood rockstar who steps up to champion her cause and end her abuse. ~ The psychological struggle between real life and her fantasy world exacts a toll on Katie. With her sanity at stake, she forges ahead and goes after what she believes will give her a life she can finally accept.

Hailing from Punta Gorda, Florida (made famous by Category 4 Hurricane Charley on Friday the 13th, in August of 2004), Caroline McKeon came to Tampa when she graduated from high school in 1968 to seek her fortune. She’s still seeking.

  1. Get into a strong writing group. You need good constructive criticism. Also, because we meet every other Monday and we each read 1,500 words (4 double spaced pages approximately), we stay on track with the writing (if it is due, we will do it). I know just realizing Monday was lurking was impetus for me to keep going and complete my next 1,500 words. It took me about 16 months to write Rockstar but then, I work a full time job (and I do so hate it when work gets in the way). Another thing I did was to write WRITING on my calendar every day, as a scheduled task. Don’t find the time to write … make the time to write.

  2. Hi Caroline, Good to see you on Writing Prompts and here’s wishing you many sales for “The Rockstar and the Fan.” I went to Peru but didn’t get to see Machu Picchu, just my new grand baby. Blessings, June
