Life in the Hollywood Lane - Book cover5-star editorial reviews! In Life in the Hollywood Lane, Trish, a 40-year-old actor, travels the journey of grief with dedication if not always grace, knows the ins and outs of how "the industry" works, follows her dreams, and finds that crazy life might not be as bad as she'd convinced herself it was. While this is a book about a woman whose best friend commits suicide, it's funny, quirky, wise, and inspirational--not a downer.

Life in the Hollywood Lane is kind of Bridget Jones-y crossed with Postcards from the Edge. It's a fun insight into the workings of one of the toughest industries in world while being a universal  every-person story, too.

Author's Note: 

I had the rare and wonderful opportunity to work in talent management in LA, and I got a great insight into "the industry." One of my actors (as well as a dear friend many years ago) committed suicide, and while Cyndi, the character who commits suicide, is not her, she certainly helped shape the story. I felt the presence of my friends with me as I wrote this story, and I came to think of them as powerful heroes of their own stories. My brother is facing a terminal illness, and so the grief that Trish goes through is real. But her quips and snappy comebacks to life's curveballs are real (from me), too. And...since I love writing about people finding each other...of course it'd be a love story.
