A single woman's perspective on dating, office politics, sports fanaticism and conspiracy theories in the Nation's Capital.

  

     
Excerpt
Why had Miriam ever thought this job boring? It was her own fault that she had failed to apply any imagination to it. As her fingers typed names and addresses onto form letters, her mind filled with questions that begged to be researched. She chugged along in the job she was paid to do, while churning up enough scandal, she hoped, to make an underground editor's eyes shine.

Romantic Times
Secretaries Miriam, Jocelyn and Cass work together at the Peace Council in Washington, D.C. But each has bigger dreams, which they spin over weekly lunches. Miriam dreams of writing an expose of the Peace Council for an underground newspaper. Her chance comes when she notices discrepancies in the acceptance forms for overseas grants.

Jocelyn quits her job co-managing a nightclub to help manage an up-and-coming rock group, a decision that is questioned by Miriam and Cass, the mother hen of the group. Then Cass leaves the Peace Council to work for the Washington Post. But trouble threatens to tear this trio apart.

Political intrigue and the unsavory side of Washington are explored in this compelling tale.

Reader Reviews for "Secretarial Wars"

Reviewed by Floyd Orr 7/5/2007
Linda Gould has crafted an unusual slice of life in which the secretarial slaves of America can joyously revel. The storyline combines the romantic fantasies of three secretaries working the phones and keyboards of the nation's bureaucracy. Their exploits surround a quarterback rivalry in the hometown of the Redskins layered over the backdrop of a presidential administration not unlike our current Pennsylvania Avenue fiasco. Ms. Gould's first novel displays a literary depth and maturity rare in a debut effort. Neither comedy nor drama, Secretarial Wars is a quietly satisfying read.
