“Breaking News: God Has a Plan: An Anchorwoman’s Journey Through Faith” is Harris Faulkner’s second novel. In this work, she talks about her experience of being the victim of a stalker. In 1995, she made the front page of the Kansas City Star after a landmark case that told of how she was stalked and had her life threatened by a man for months. The case had brought to the fore the anti-stalking law in the state even as it whetted the appetites of Hollywood filmmakers and talk show producers. They had got wind of the story after a national press wire service published it. Almost overnight, she went from being an anchor that delivered the news to becoming the news. She needed to find a way to deal with the pressure. A lot of people in the industry wanted her to talk of the stalking situation that she had no interest in talking about. She had no trouble rejecting the advances of filmmakers and talk show hosts as she did not want to give the reins of her life to someone she could not trust. She wanted to talk to people with similar experiences and not people that just wanted to boost their ratings. Using the lessons she had learned from her upbringing, she persevered and found some support groups that helped her on the road to recovery. She tells her story hoping that her experience can help someone going through tough times as she did. Faulkner asserts that while people see happiness and success, the reality is that everyone experiences both the good and the bad.
