Steve Piacente, an award-winning reporter and adjunct professor at American University in Washington, D.C., has just published "Bella," a novel that explores the power of temptation, the futility of revenge, and the consequences of yielding to either. The story centers on Isabel Moss and her quest to uncover the truth behind her husband's mysterious death on an Afghan battlefield. Watch the video trailer at: www.getbella.com. Steve is currently deputy communications director at the U.S. General Services Administration. He joined GSA in 2002 after a 25-year career in print journalism. He was Washington Correspondent for two Southern newspapers, the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier, and, before that, The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune. Previously, he worked at the Lakeland (Fla.) Ledger, and the Naples (Fla.) Daily News. Steve, who teaches in a classroom where he once took classes, graduated from AU's School of Communication in 1976, and in 2000 earned a Masters in Fiction from Johns Hopkins University.
