Four beautiful women seek fame and fortune in Hollywood, the City of Toys, where actresses are like dolls, playing pretend on the big screen.
Marlo: a former child actress from New York City.
Rhonda: a small-town beauty queen.
Kim: a “nice Jewish girl” with a painful childhood.
Guyla: a “serious actress” with a debilitating, stress-induced illness.
Marlo, Rhonda, Kim, and Guyla, become friends living in the same apartment complex, in the city where dreams and disasters go hand-in-hand. They come to rely on each other as they deal with sexual come-ons, crazed stalkers, jealous starlets and the constant pressure of trying to make it in showbiz. But when the pressure gets too much, will their friendship save them or will the City of Toys break them?
Targeted Age Group: 18-60
What was your inspiration for this book?
I was an actress for a while, and I had to navigate through the sordid jungle known as Tinsel Town. It was very scary at times, but I was after a dream! City of Toys is a fictional, factually-based account of the struggles, challenges and horrors facing four very different women chasing their elusive Hollywood dreams and it was inspired by my actual years. It's a modern day Valley of the Dolls for the #MeToo era.
Why did you decide to produce an audiobook?
