Miami World / Local 10
Clinton teams up with her friend, novelist Louise Penny, in “State of Terror,” whose plot could happen to someone in Clinton’s career: A “rookie” secretary of state, working in the administration of a rival politician, tries solve a wave of terrorist attacks.The novel goes on sale October 12, and will be published jointly by Clinton’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, and Penny’s, St. Martin’s Press.
“Writing a thriller with Louise is a dream come true,” Clinton, who has expressed her admiration for Penny and other mystery writers in the past, said in a statement Tuesday. “I have savored each of his books and his characters, as well as his friendship. Now we put our experiences together to explore the complex world of high-stakes diplomacy and treason. Not everything is what it seems at first ”.
Award-winning Canadian author Penny, whose novels include “The Cruelest Month” and “The Brutal Tale,” said in a statement that she couldn’t “say yes quickly enough” to the opportunity to work with Clinton.
“What an incredible experience, getting into the State Department. Inside the White House. Inside the mind of the Secretary of State as high-risk crises erupt, ”he said. “Before we begin, we talk about her time as Secretary of State. What was your worst nightmare? ‘State of terror’ is the answer ”.
Writing fiction and worst-case scenarios have become a favorite pastime for Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. He collaborated with James Patterson on the cyber thriller “The President Has Disappeared,” which sold for a million copies, and on a new novel, “The President’s Daughter,” which is out in June.
Hillary Clinton, secretary of state during Barack Obama’s first term, has written a handful of nonfiction works. Among them are the memoirs “Living History”; “Hard Choices,” which covers her time with Obama, who defeated her in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary; and “What Happened,” which centers on his surprising loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
“State of Terror” appears to be based not just on her years as secretary of state, but on her reflections on the Trump administration’s “America First” foreign policy. According to Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s, the main character is “tasked with putting together a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy, a carefully designed scheme to take advantage of an American government dangerously out of touch and out of power in the places where it counts most. “
Financial terms were not disclosed. Clinton was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose other clients include Obama and Bill Clinton. Penny was represented by David Gernert, whose New York-based company Gernert has worked with, among others, John Grisham, Stewart O’Nan and Chasten Buttigieg, husband of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. macos / deepLFree.translatedWithDeepL.text

The Bearkats were slated to open their season on the road against the Incarnate Word Cardinals a week ago, but Texas’s rare winter storm had other plans, causing a postponement to April 17.
Fortunately for the Bearkats, head coach K.C. Keeler, a native of Pennsylvania, went out and bought what he described as the last six shovels in Huntsville so he and his staff could clear the team’s field of snow before it turned to ice. The snow’s freezing, he said, would have wiped out even more days of practice.
“If we wouldn’t have touched that field, the sheet of ice that would’ve been on top of it, we probably couldn’t have gotten on that field until Tuesday or Wednesday,” Keeler said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “That’s how bad the field would’ve been.”
In 2019, Sam Houston State contended with injuries to the team’s top three quarterbacks en route to a 7-5 overall mark and a 6-3 record in in Southland Conference play. The Bearkats haven’t played since Nov. 23 of that year, closing their campaign with a 37-14 victory over the Houston Baptist Huskies.
“It was just like the icing on the cake of this long wait to see when we’re going to play,” cornerback Zyon McCollum said, per the Houston Chronicle. “But we’ve been having adversity. This whole thing started with COVID, and the winter storm, it was no different. By that time, we were used to the feeling. We know that we’ve just got to attack it day in and day out and then play the cards as they fall.”
The Lions have played only slightly more recently. Their 2019 season ended on Dec. 7, when they fell to the Montana Grizzlies 73-28 in the second round of the FCS playoffs. Southeastern Louisiana finished the year 8-5 overall and went 6-3 in the conference.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to get back on the field and compete,” Lions head coach Scelfo said, according to the school’s athletics website. “We don’t practice just to practice; we practice to compete. We’re looking forward to seeing how we measure up against an opponent.”
He added: “We’ll definitely have a good indication of how we measure up after this opening game. Sam Houston has the second most wins in all of FCS over the last decade and we have a ton of respect for its program. They return one of the top defenses in the nation and an offense led by a veteran quarterback (Eric Shmid) with plenty of talent at the skill positions. We’re facing a great team on Saturday.”
