Paul was Katie’s rock for thirteen years, but then she watched him die.

By day, she is left with her daughter Ella’s questions about where Daddy went, and at night she’s consumed with nightmares of the moment he died. It isn’t long before Katie’s mother hints that her volatile lifestyle and developing drinking habits are no way to raise a little girl.

Through it all, her and Paul’s best friend, Liam is there. Grieving the death of both husband and friend, the time they spend together seems more intimate these days, and Katie soon stumbles into taboo territory: Liam might be in love with her.

Torn between Liam’s feelings and losing Ella, one night Katie runs.

Air. Space. Thinking time. That’s what she thinks she’s getting when she stumbles upon that party. In the morning, in a strange bed, she can’t remember the night before.

Pulling Me Under is raw in its brutality of love and pain, with slow-building suspense to a heart-stopping conclusion.

Many of his novels were turned into movies, with hits such as Hombre, Get Shorty and Jackie Brown all taken from his works.

Another thing Elmore Leonard is famous for leaving us with are his 10 Rules of Writing. These are a set of somewhat controversial tips Leonard detailed in his book 10 Rules of Writing. Me, personally? I think there’s some serious gold in there, as well as a few items you can take with a grain of salt.
