When well heeled, Veronique meets bank teller Murray the farthest thing on her mind is falling in love. Her visa is expiring, her late father had enemies now looking for her, and she needed an instant relief from pending deportation. The only attraction Veronique has with Murray is his citizenship and willingness to be rented for a year. She doesn’t want love; he doesn't know how to love anyone, she has a sultry cat, Ava, he has Harold, an energized dog, she’s rich, and he has fifty-two dollars saved. It is the perfect temporary union until things go wrong. She has only one rule, “don’t touch me.” He gets drunk and breaks the rules. She sends him a thousand miles away believing everything is in order until it’s not. Feelings get hurt; promises ignored, the law steps in, and then the entirety of their cordial understanding falls apart.

He began a long entertainment career first as a short-story writer, started a brief singing career that evolved into acting where among his credits are a two-year stint on "Days of Our Lives" and a nineteen-week role in "Ice Station Zebra." He then took a giant step into film production. He started at the bottom as a production assistant and rapidly became a screenwriter, director and producer of many films and television shows.

Bill currently lives in South Carolina and Los Angeles, Ca.A story note.Originally developed and sold to 5 major producers and studios production company's in screenplay form, given a green light twice only to be cancelled and finally all rights reverted back to me. My agent suggested I should write the novel.Years back I met a funny and colorful young lady who came into the U.S. illegally and spent years trying zany ways to skip the long process and take a short cut or two to obtain a Green Card. All of her nutty attempts failed, and she ultimately applied for and became a U.S. Citizen the legal way. The seed of an idea from these crazy escapades led me to write Veronique and Murray. The story includes a bit of mystery, a host of colorful characters, and a tinge of danger. You'll also find some laughter, and some intriguing fun. Oh and there is a dog named Harold, whose personality is quite incredible. Reviews have stated it is the most romantic book they ever read.Other novels by William Byron HillmanGhosts and Phantoms IZebra's Rock and MeThe Hard WayGhosts and Phantoms IIAprilLet's Sue 'EmQuigley's Christmas AdventureAuthor Web Site: http://www.williamhillman.comAuthor's Blog: http://williambyronhillman.blogspot.comAmazon Author Page:
