Alex Sheldon is a aspiring novelist who has two things: Writer’s Block and a gambling problem. But then two Cuban gentlemen from a mafia comes by his residence and gives him a choice: Finish his next book in 30 days or less and collect $100,000 to pay off the debt, or be killed. It is then that Alex hires Emma Dinsmore , a court stenographer to be his dictator. His novel, set in the roaring 1920’s is about a man named Adam Shipley, a writer who has personal problems and is shy to be in love with women. At first things get off to a rocky start, but with Alex telling the story and Emma with her thoughts, comments, and her point of view, they tend to form a relationship similar to the novel.
