About the Book
At age thirty-eight, instead of socializing with Baltimore’s A-list, Lenora Stone photographs them for Baltimore Scene, a glossy magazine filled with beautiful people who, unlike Lenora, never have to worry about car trouble and overdue bills. Lately even things with her boyfriend Gerald haven’t been right. They’ve been together for three years but he can’t seem to ask the one question she’s been waiting to hear.
Then just when she thinks things can’t get worse, Lenora wins the jackpot in the Maryland lottery. In a heartbeat, all her dreams become possible. She quits her job and indulges her every desire—starting with a shiny, silver BMW and a million-dollar mansion. Gerald is finally ready to put a ring on her finger, and the city’s most exclusive women’s group is dying for her to join.
Yet as her life starts to come together, the things Lenora holds dear begin to fall apart. Has her world really changed for the better, or does fortune come with a heavy price?

In an Interview Connie Briscoe had these words to say:
Who are your favorite authors? Favorite books?
My favorite books are The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, Mama by Terry McMillan, Hollywood Wives by Jackie Collins, Invisible Life and Just As I Am by E. Lynn Harris, The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. Yes, I’m all over the place.
Tell us about your journey to publication.
My journey was actually rather short as my first submission to an agent was Sisters and Lovers and it went on to publication and sales of more than 600,000 copies. I still pinch myself about that. But that success came after years of preparation—taking writing courses, working as an editor polishing the work of others, and reading books about the craft and business of writing. The market has changed so much since Sisters and Lovers was published and it was actually harder in some ways to get my latest novel MONEY CAN’T BUY LOVE to print.
Tell us about your current book.
MONEY CAN’T BUY LOVE is the story of Lenora Stone, a photographer with money and man troubles who suddenly wins millions in the lottery and meets the guy of her dreams. The question: Will Lenora smarten up about men and money? Or will she blow it all?
What influenced you to write this book?
Many things including the current times we live in. I asked myself what might an insecure woman do if she suddenly won millions of dollars and met the man of her dreams. Would she smarten up and gain more confidence? Or would she blow it all?
