When Tara Light flees from the fundamentalist compound in which she was raised and finds love with a Hollywood actor, her dreams seem to be coming true-- until her former cult's leader decides to kidnap her and hold her for ransom at the expense of her wealthy new beau. A Simple, Ordinary Life is an 87,000 word novel that is a tale of worlds colliding-- specifically, Hollywood and a religious fundamentalist compound. A Simple, Ordinary Life follows Greg Steel who is Hollywood's preeminent action star. He has grown jaded with Hollywood and his lack of opportunities to play substantive roles. When he becomes smitten with a mysterious young girl named Tara, he begins to rediscover happiness. As their relationship develops, Tara confesses that she has recently fled from a cult called Haven Rock, of which she had been a member since birth. When paparazzi photos of the couple posted on the internet find their way to the desk of Delroy Black, the corrupt head of Haven Rock, he immediately recognizes the opportunity to cash in on Steel's wealth by kidnapping the girl and ransoming her back to the action star. When Black and Steel finally meet, it becomes unclear whether the action hero will pay the ransom or recreate the roles he so frequently plays on the silver screen in real life and play it tough.
