It was all about the band, until the girl next door. Her innocence is tempting. A sexually charged coming of age story set in the throes of stardom. Sacrifices are made as everything changes as they know it.

About an up and coming teenage rocker on the verge of stardom, when the girl next door becomes something more; they're forced to face the harsh realities on his road to fame and the expectations of their friends and family.

Ann Marie ("Annie") Frohoff grew up in sunny Southern California. As a teen and young adult she spent her time frequenting and living in nearly every beachside city up and down the coast. She settled in Hollywood at 19 working in film and TV. Soon her itch to keep moving took over again, taking her to Hawaii for a time and then back to LA.

She’s now settled in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Her wanderlust and propensity to live life out loud has brought her many life experiences so many of us only dream about. Always the storyteller, it would be of no surprise to those who grew up with Annie, that she made the transition into a book and screenplay author. You could say that she woke up one day and had an epiphany, deciding to go to school for screenwriting. It’s with this inner fire she set out to write her first screenplay. Soon after, such work made it into the hands of an agency creative executive who challenged her to write a novel to support the complex ensemble cast of characters she’d created. Thus, after only a couple of years and many hours on the road immersing herself in her subject matter; her edgy modern day "Walk The Line meets John Hughes Classics” debut novella, SKID OUT, has been completed, along with the first installment in her Trilogy. SKID OUT is the prequel novella to the HEAVY INFLUENCE TRILOGY.

The first installment in her Heavy Influence Trilogy, FIRST KISS, is tentatively set to release late spring 2013 — The series is a story about young, reckless love between a rising rock star and his younger muse, spanning 10 years of their tumultuous and passionate relationship. Each book in the Trilogy will come with a soundtrack of original music, of which the lyrics will appear in the pages of the books. (Alternative Rock Genre).

Annie has now also delved into the supernatural fantasy world with her writing partners Shaun Barger and songwriter/musician Matthew Reich. Taking inspiration directly from song lyrics and building an entire realm of vastly complex characters and plot lines; weaving history, fantasy and heavy doses of romance together. You will be kept turning the pages of “The Zodiac Wars: My Gemini” novellas and “Precious Metal: The Prince and the Gypsy” book series. Both series of books are currently in development.

Here's an excerpt from Jake's POV!!
Driving down the road I couldn't stop glancing at her, it had been days since we were near each other. I felt that rush of energy Aly always spoke of, a live, invisible wire. I couldn't take it anymore and pulled over before we reached the light going out to the main road.
“What’s up, why are you pulling over,” she asked, as we came to a stop.
Without answering her, I leaned over bringing her face closer to mine. She didn't fight me and she moved in quicker than I expected. She grabbed both sides of my face. Taking her lips to mine, I felt a frenzy overcome me. I was engulfed by a powerful surge. The way she smelled, the way she tasted, the softness of her lips, her tongue and her skin were spinning me out of control. She was equally aggressive, completely inebriating me. I backed my seat up and pulled her over onto my lap. She felt my excitement and a gasp escaped her.
“Am I hurting you?” She whispered, heavily.
“No.” I couldn’t help but moan.
Her black eye liner had started to smudge under her eyes from the heat we were generating. Our chests heaved in unison and her warm sweat breath flashed over my face.
“Aly, this is what you do to me.” I admitted, brushing her hair away from her cheek and she started to kiss me again. 
A car horn startled us.
“Shit, who is it?” She said, burying her head into my neck.
Hoots and hollers followed and the honking persisted from an unfamiliar beat-up Jeep Cherokee. We realized it was Chris and Nadine.
“Get a room you two!” Nadine shouted over Chris, who was in the driver’s seat.
Aly shouted back. “You scared the shit out of me!”
“Ha, that’s what you get for sucking face right where your parents could drive by!”
“Later,” Chris hollered and sped away.
“Aly call me first chance!” Nadine shouted with her voice fading away with every word.

I didn’t want to go back to the studio. I wrapped my arms around her burying my face in her hair again and filling my lungs with her breath.
