For Becky Komant of Kelowna, in any given day she juggles many responsibilities. She is a busy mom of 4, a business owner, a fitness instructor, a life and nutrition coach, and now, she adds author and speaker to her resume.
Becky’s debut novel is called The Controlled. It was released on April 5th and is already receiving strong and exciting reviews. Local best-selling author, Gary Fong said, “This book is such an entertaining read. It sucks you in, and you get caught up in this whirlwind of a story. The characters in the book are fascinating and so mysterious. There are plot twists and whodunnits that will keep you on the edge of your seat..."
The story is set against the sun drenched streets of Miami and the larger-than-life glitz of Las Vegas. The main character, Sarah, is a mom of 5 who is also a business owner and fitness competitor. Becky drew from her experiences as a busy mom and her knowledge of the fitness world to set the scene for her character, but then let her imagination run wild to create a riveting story full of intrigue, seduction, blackmail, lies, and manipulation.
“I wanted to develop my main character as a woman who made some bad choices in her life but then found the strength within herself to fight against the consequences of those choices and take control of her life,” Becky said.
