How do lottery tickets inspire Marissa Stapley?
Let's to find out…
Hi! My name is crystal fletcher and welcome to this week’s episode of all about canadian books. I’m thrilled to have Marissa Stapley as a guest. Marissa is an international bestselling author, award-winning journalist, editor, screenwriter and educator. We discussed Marissa’s latest novel Lucky which was published by Simon and Schuster.
Lucky Armstrong is a tough, talented grifter who has just pulled off a million-dollar heist with her boyfriend, Cary. She’s ready to start a brand-new life, with a new identity—when things go sideways. Lucky finds herself alone for the first time, navigating the world without the help of either her father or her boyfriend, the two figures from whom she’s learned the art of the scam.
When she discovers that a lottery ticket she bought on a whim is worth millions, her elation is tempered by one big problem: cashing in the winning ticket means the police will arrest her for her crimes...
You'll have to read Lucky to find out what she does!
