Alexa Martinez, didn’t grow up believing in fairy tales. From an early age, she was trained to kill—literally. Her father was a contractor for The Company (CIA) and she worked closely with him. Sometimes the line between good and evil blurred, but she was one of the best operatives in the business. She was taught that fear would get you killed. She lived her life with one eye on the door and one hand on her gun. Even after she married, she continued to live dangerously—until she had her daughter.
Basement Level Five: Never Scared picks up years after her daughter was born. Alexa is retired from the business and has taken on the role of ordinary housewife. Yet she’ll never be normal, and her children live with constant guards. It was the internal conflict between Alexa’s past and her future.
“I wanted the conflict to be one that would resonate with many people,” says author Leslie Wright. “I think a lot of us have made questionable choices while younger that continue to impact us as we age. At this stage in her life, she’s firmly running away from her past. She has tried to be a good wife, loving mother, and dependable friend because she wants to be better for her children. She has the best of intentions, but she can’t run from her past.”
Wright claims that the book was inspired by a recurring dream.
“I had a vivid dream about a cast of characters escaping into an underground lair,” Wright claims. “It wasn’t just a single dream, either. Each night for a week, I dreamed about the premise and the characters. It was so realistic and detailed I can remember the details, even today, as if I had the dream last night. Of course, I couldn’t help but share this with everyone I knew. It wasn’t long before people were telling me to write a book about B5.”
The book, published by Black Opal Books, has received several five star reviews, including comments such as “…an extremely action-packed read,” and “…fast paced and kept my interest with plot twists and turns at every page.”
