Once upon a time, First Lady Stacey Lea Forbes and her four best friends uncover a plot to keep women out of power—especially out of politics  They set out to set things right.    What unfolds is a momentous battle of the sexes played out in the most powerful arena in the world.  The troubled peace that follows culminates almost thirty years later when the daughter of one of their own is sworn in as the First Woman President of the United States.


Backstage at the White House is a bigger than life novel with a cast of characters whose passions and powers teeter back and forth between the real and surreal.

  Stacey Leanne Culberson Forbes, the Perfect First Lady, climbs a tree to think; has visions that her friends take seriously, and forms a secret organization called Women On Watch.

  Goodman Palmer Forbes, the nation's popular president, feeds his mother's ashes to his fish, plays war games on big electronic boards in the War Room, and obeys commandments he believes are from his mother returned from the grave.

  John Marion Cardinal Bishop is said to be so powerful that being elevated to Pope would be a comedown, but he has his EVE. 

  Judge Earle Salvation Walker, TV Evangelist, is one of the most powerful churchmen in the world, and his church, The Church Eternal, a modern day phenomenon, but he has a 'good little wife' at home named Carolyn.

  And the First Lady's friends who risk all with her—Sarah Winthrop, the only woman senator; Sue Ann Fairmont and Bev Abelson, wives of Senators; and Ellie, Stacey Lea's Girl Friday with whom she shares Karma.


Their worlds collide Backstage at the White House.
