In Morning Drive to Midnight, Adrienne Daniels is determined to become a major player in the radio broadcast industry again. When a sudden opportunity arises, she puts everything on the line to turn around a failing radio station and make it number one in the fiercely competitive Chicago market.
Adriennes confidence, fragility and humor are constantly challenged as she struggles to find that magic combination of passion and finesse that guided her so easily to the top. Morning Drive to Midnight takes readers on a journey behind the scenes of the competitive radio business and into the complex and exciting lives of the people whose voices are the foundations of their celebrity.
"Hi Mrs. Killingsworth, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your first novel. I just finished it on my lunch break today. I first heard about your book signing on AM - 1560 "The Touch" radio station. I'm an African American female and it does my heart good to read books written by black authors. I purchased your book for my former manager to enjoy as well. I pray that your next novel is equally good." -- C. Bowden
