The Internet: a cyber-playground in which we can be-or not be-whomever we want. Yearning for escape from her stagnant job in a Cincinnati publishing company, thirty-eight year-old Cara Shannon frequents the message boards of an eclectic online radio station where she meets a host of unique people-including the mysterious "saffire_21," whom she begins to suspect is her niece Arianna. There's only one problem: Arianna has been dead for seven years. Although it seems far-fetched and insane, Cara is driven to learn the truth about her niece. Was Arianna's death staged? Should their family have questioned the mysterious circumstances surrounding it? With the support of Kevin, her intriguing and attentive cyber-crush from Santa Barbara, Cara ventures into the scenic wine country of California's Central Coast in search of saffire_21. On her journey, unexpected discoveries about love and life emerge, bringing her own future into focus like never before.

About the author (2009)

Alexandra Lander grew up the youngest of nine children in a highly creative, close-knit family from the Midwest. Her passion for writing has existed ever since she bought her first journal in the third grade, and her very first readers were sixth grade classmates who clandestinely passed around her short stories during class. Alexandra's dedication to the craft was fostered by many encouraging and memorable teachers from elementary school through college. In the last two decades, she has been many things...a Federal employee, a primary-grade school teacher, a writer/editor for elementary-level textbooks and assessments, a singer/songwriter, a licensed massage therapist and author of her first novel, "saffire_21." Alexandra writes with the intention that her works be inspirational as well as entertaining. When she's not writing, Alexandra enjoys live music, traveling, socializing with friends, and hiking or biking somewhere beautiful. She currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
