I wrote a chick-lit/murder mystery last November for NaNo, in which a biracial call-center agent finds out that she’s an heiress to a great fortune from her insanely rich American father. Her companion/watcher/hot love interest is a hacker with a serious grudge against her family, and a lot of people end up dying along the way before she finds out the truth. It’s not all seriousness and Agatha Christie-esque angst, though; there’s some humor involved (mostly coming from the call-center setting), and since the rest of the story is set in Hawaii, there’s also a bit of swimsuit-shopping and luxurious spa days along the way.
Needless to say, this is the next NaNo that I’m adapting into a screenplay, after I used another one of my chick-lit stories as a basis for my Script Frenzy project this April.
