Anita Armstrong was a hot selling author who disappeared after her marriage. Now she's resurfaced with a new book and a new name. Much to her publisher's surprise, the new book is just what they are looking for. But Anita finds the typing a bit much, so she hires someone to do that for her while she concentrates on the writing.

Imagine her surprise - and her anger - when her new book turns up under another title and wins a prize for its "author" - her typist!
