M.K. Ducote, wife of race car driver Chapman Ducote, shares her wild journey through the adrenaline-fueled world of professional motorsports
Miami Beach, FL – Many call this the hottest novel of the summer, Naked Paddock, which is an exciting look into the fast paced world of race car driving by M.K. Ducote, wife of race car driver and reality star Chapman Ducote.
M.K. and her husband Chapman achieved sudden fame as friends of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. Scott's friendship and adoration of Chapman Ducote was so strong that Chapman will be making appearances in the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. He is also in talks for a spinoff with Scott to further explore their "bromance" and Scott's growing interest in the world of race car driving. They have also appeared on The Real Housewives of Miami.
With their reality tv connection aside, M.K. Ducote has written a thrilling debut novel, Naked Paddock (Telemachus Press, Summer 2013) and is providing an inside view of fame, wealth and high speed adventure that Jackie Collins fans have come to love. Inspired by real events and the first novel of a trilogy series, Naked Paddock, transports its readers on a wild journey through the adrenaline-fueled world of professional motorsports—a world of money, sex, ego, intrigue and ruthless competition. Set on the stage of historic racetracks throughout the world, Naked Paddock introduces a lifelike cast of colorful characters, as quirky and flawed as they are entertaining: talented young drivers, pushy agents, wealthy sponsors, fickle team owners, trophy wives, flag-girls and ambitious models.
M.K. Ducote has toured the world’s premier racing circuits for years with her husband, a professional racecar driver with over 14 career podiums. With the intimate knowledge of a real racing insider, M.K. Ducote gives the reader a rare, behind-the-scenes glimpse of international motorsports and the secretive and rarified world of the rich, famous and infamous, from exotic locales to haute couture.

About the author:
M.K. Ducote grew up in the small town of Davie, Florida. Eager to see more of the world, M.K. studied abroad in Melbourne, Tokyo and Paris as an undergraduate and interned with Sotheby's Auction house in New York and Melbourne. M.K. graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA from the University of Florida (B.S. in Business Finance, B.A. in Classics and Minor in Art History) and gave the commencement speech for her graduating class. The eternal scholar, M.K. went on to law school and studied international law and human rights in Cape Town and Lima, graduating with a J.D. from the University of Florida and an LL.M. from the University of Miami.
Having seen the world, M.K. settled down to practice law and met her husband, Chapman Ducote, a professional racecar driver and entrepreneur with over 14 career podiums under his belt. Tossed into the exciting and scandalous world of motorsports, M.K. was enthralled by the behind-the-scenes drama. M.K. quickly turned to her life-long passion and set pen to paper, plucking from real life the colorful settings and scenes of her fiction series, Naked Paddock.
M.K. was featured on five episodes of Kourtney & Kim (Kardashian) Take Miami, which aired in early 2013, as well as various other reality television shows. She is currently a brand ambassador for Essentia water, as well as Levinson's Jewelers located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In her free time, M.K. enjoys playing the cello, cycling in Aspen, horseback riding, free diving in the Bahamas, racing karts and reading, but her true passion is writing. Each year, M.K. Ducote embraces her passion for travel and writing, accompanying her husband to racing circuits all over the world and gathering inspiration for her high-octane novels. When not on the road, the couple calls home to Miami Beach, Florida.
