Good morning. I'm Debbie Elliott.

She's teaming up with author James Patterson to write the thriller called "Run, Rose, Run." It's set in Tennessee, of course. The plot - a singer-songwriter on the run to Nashville, hoping to leave a hard life behind. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
