I am a solicitor in Scotland. Subject to anything the contract might say about breaching it, if one party isn't doing what they are supposed to to the extent that performance by the other of their obligations, ie, your obligation to write the book and her obligation to pay you, you would have an action for damages for your losses, in other words your right to a fee. So yes, it is possible that you could walk away and sue her for your fee one basis that she made it impossible for you to write the book. Always look at the contact, however.
