I'll Take Care of You, hi res.jpg
Copy of NapNan, singles ad.jpg


Femme fatale Nanette Packard had a knack for seducing, manipulating and victimizing a string of husbands and lovers, often simultaneously. A habitual liar, cheat and thief, this Supermom con artist was married three times, had four children, and had spent millions by the time she and her lover, NFL linebacker Eric Naposki, went to trial for conspiring to murder Bill McLaughlin, her older entrepreneur fiance. Like an episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County Gone Bad," this high-profile fatal love triangle case shows that the pressures to appear wealthy, cosmetically enhanced, and mega-successful have only grown stronger. I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU serves as a lens onto our obsession with celebrity, a national epidemic of materialism, and a lethal greed that has put so many Americans into the throes of crippling debt. (Kensington/Pinnacle, 2014)
