SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY: By Any Other Name, by Alana Lorens

Today's Spotlight is on a fellow Desert Breeze Publishing author, Alana Lorens, with her newest release: BY ANY OTHER NAME.

Up-and-coming mommyblogger and single mom Marisol Herrera Slade returns to her old hometown in western Pennsylvania for her 20th high school reunion, reluctant and yet compelled to see her high school sweetheart, Russell Asher, who dumped her for the homecoming queen.

Russell’s marriage to the golden girl, however, ended in a nasty divorce, and he has been systematically excluded from his sons’ lives. In his Internet wanderings, he’s found feminist blogger named Jerrika Jones, who glorifies single motherhood, essentially putting a stamp of approval on what’s happened to him. He’s vowed to take this woman down if they ever should meet.

What he doesn’t know, when he thinks to rekindle what he had with Marisol, is that Marisol and Jerrika are one and the same. When he discovers the truth, will his drive for revenge derail any chance they have to reunite? Or will they find they have more in common than they ever expected?

Barbara Mountjoy has been a published writer for over 30 years, and has raised seven children. Writing as Alana Lorens and Lyndi Alexander, she still keeps her day job as a family law attorney and her night job as mother to two special-needs children. 
In her off-hours, she volunteers to help victims of domestic violence (a recurring theme in her Pittsburgh Lady Lawyer series stories) and sews quilts for Project Linus, a program that provides homemade blankets for kids in hospitals.
Her blog on autism and family life can be found at
