Book Launch – “Infamy” by Seelie Kay

Book Launch – “Infamy” by Seelie Kay


Infamy. An evil or wicked act. Terrorists bent on revenge have found a way to make planes disappear from the sky, without a trace. And when one winds up buried in a Wisconsin cornfield, it’s a race against time to rescue the passengers from certain death.

When international law attorney Sheikh Harun Ali is lured to the Amazon and warned of a frightening plot against the United States, he and his wife, Marianne Benson, enlist the assistance of their neighbors, covert agent Cade Matthews and his wife, Constitutional Law Professor Janet MacLachlan. Ultimately, these feisty lawyers are pushed to the wall, desperate to find a plane that has been buried in an unknown cornfield, the passengers still on board. The terrorists’ hatred for the Alis is absolute—the Alis once left their organization bankrupt and broken—but they hate America more. And their fiendish games are just beginning. They are seeking a much bigger prize, one that could destroy a nation and possibly the world. An act that will live in infamy.


Cade grasped his water bottle withboth hands. “Before his brother died, he said eight words.”

Harun nodded. “They are going to make American planes disappear.”

Dianna’s eyes grew wide.

Anders rubbed a hand over his face,then through his long dark hair. His deep green eyes stared up at the ceilingof the plane. “Fucking hell. Nine-eleven all over again.”

“That is our fear,” Harun said.“However, so many precautionary measures are in place in this country, simply hijacking planes and flying them into buildings is no longer easy. They must have a different plan.”

Cade emitted a heavy sigh. “And that is what we need to figure out. What exactly do those eight words mean? For example, he did not specify that the planes would disappear in America, which could mean that they will disappear abroad or over oceans.”

Anders sat up straight. “And disappear could mean many things. Crash. Hijack. Pull a Malaysia. How many ways can you make a plane disappear?”

Interview with the author

Q. Who is your favorite author?
J.D. Robb (a/k/a Nora Roberts)  The Dallas series. Eve Dallas is a kick-ass cop in the future who happens to be married to a hot hunky gazzillionaire with an Irish accent. What’s not to love?
Q. Why should we read your books?
Because they will open new worlds to you and hopefully, makeyou laugh, cry, and blush!
Q. Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself?
A part of me appears in all of my characters. it’s hard to hide my sense of humor or my sense of morality.
Q. Beatles or Monkees? Why?
OMG, are you kidding? The Monkees. Davy Jones. Every schoolgirl’s crush. Sure, his music was cheesy, but for a young kid, he was heavenly.  The Beatles are, of course, the better band, but they really weren’t on my radar until I got older.

Q. Who should play you in a film of your life?
Meryl Streep. She’s the only one who could!

Q.  Why do you write romance?

Because I am fascinated by the games people play to find and secure a lastingr elationship, which is not always love. There’s the chase, the courtship, the falling, the surrender. That’s what I try to capture in my stories.

Q.  Do youprefer a certain type of romantic hero?

I adore smart,dashing gentlemen who aren’t afraid to live on the edge. They can be a bad boy,a billionaire, a prince, or a secret agent. That hint of danger just hooks me!However, I also love strong, independent women who aren’t afraid to fight forwhat they want, even love.

Q.  Why did you write “Infamy?”

The characters featured in this story—Sheikh Harun Ali and his wife, Marianne Benson–are both lawyers who focus on international law and their practice is devoted toc ompensating the victims of terrorism. So I was looking for a new hook,something on the horizon that could pose a serious threat to the world and in particular, the United States. I found it in an article on advances in“cloaking” technology or making planes disappear. For years, we have had stealth planes that do not appear on radar, but can be seen in the air ifa nyone is looking. I wanted to take that a step further: What if someone created a means to actually cloak a plane and hide it from everyone’s view?What if that technology fell into the hands of terrorists? And “Infamy” was born.

Q.   How doesyour former profession as a lawyer impact your writing?

After 30 years,the law and the legal world are so firmly embedded in my brain that I can’t flush them out. That has become the lens through which I view the world and that naturally guides my characters and plots. Little peculiarities that I have witnessed in lawyers and the law always work their way into my stories.

Q.   Any plansto write outside the romance genre completely?Actually, I ghostwrite non-fiction for other professionals—doctors, lawyers, financial gurus—so I dip my toes into a lot of different genres. However, I have bee nitching to write a book about a relative who founded a religious cult. I researched it for years and found a lot of information that had been buried. I have a pile of paper a foot high. Someday, I need to go through it carefully and start writing. I have the interest, just not the time
