Silicon Secrets

(2003)
A novel by

 
He wanted it all. Why wouldn't he? He came from a brutal background that he couldn't wait to run away from. America would be his savior, and California, the icing on the cake. Did it matter if he was unqualified for a Silicon Valley job? Not when he had his handsome looks and suave mannerism. He soon found himself a boy-toy of executive JJ (Jennifer Jones) who would serve as his "mentor." Lucky would stop at nothing to get what he wants. Nothing.

"Each chapter in Mrs. Burr's novel will keep you in suspense." - The Write Stuff Book Reviews by Misti Jackson

"SILICON SECRETS is a recommended read." - The Road to Romance

"Lucky Lukovich is a young man who thoroughly enjoys the companionship of women and has an energetic flair for living life to the fullest. Then Lucky meets free-spirited Heather and his personal world is about to get complicated and unpredictable! Silicon Secrets is about unintended consequences in human relationships and how the course of true love (and lust!) never seem to run smoothly. Silicon Secrets is the debut novel of Catherine Burr, a genuinely gifted author who demonstrates an undeniable ability to craft memorable, entertaining characters and then thoroughly embroil them into a hectic and unpredictable sequence of events that produce one of those all-to-rare reading experiences that linger in the mind long after the book is set back upon the library shelf. Highly recommended!" - James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review


Excerpt:

Murder was in the air.

Like a foggy day, it would always be there, hanging over his head; a memory that would not evaporate no matter how hard he tried to erase it. Pressing harder on the gas pedal of his new Ferrari, he was headed for a night in the city.

Glancing at the woman by his side, he wondered what his father would think of him now.

Author Catherine Burr lived the Silicon Valley lifestyle and wrote this book on cocktail napkins as she attended parties and Silicon Valley events for the elite of the elite. As an executive's wife, she saw first hand the story behind the story, the story she thought should be told but that hadn't been. She boldly took those cocktail napkins, dropped her oldest child off at college and went home and wrote this novel in practically one sitting. The places in this book are places Catherine has been in the Bay Area and that authenticity rings through loud and clear in the words.

Catherine is known for her twists and turns and Silicon Secrets will have you turning the pages and guessing what's going to happen next.
