Hollywood Holiday

All she wants for Christmas is for Hollywood to love her again. But once she meets him, her Christmas list changes.

Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year?

But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her.

Her new Christmas wish: Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is.

About the Author:

Sasha is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, Hollywood, history, and travel. It’s no surprise that her books include a little of each. Her first play, ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’ was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

Welcome Robert Gray!

Today we welcome Robert Gray, author of EVE HALLOWS and the BOOK of SHRIEKS!  We asked Robert to share with us about any special relationships that he forms with his characters.  He shared a little about his character relationship with Eve Hallows:

I guess you can say I have a special relationship with Eve Hallows, the main character in the series. I based her off of my daughter. Funny thing is, though, Eve and my daughter aren’t that much alike, at least not on the surface. My daughter isn’t being raised by monsters—okay, she might have a different opinion about that—and she has a pretty good idea what it’s like to live around other humans. And there’s the little fact that everything that happens in the series has never happened to my daughter.

But I suppose that’s the point of writing fiction—to take something you know and turn it into something new. And that’s what Eve is. I took someone I know and made her someone else, not necessarily better or worse, but new.

Part of the fun of writing Eve is sprinkling in those similarities only I can see. Sometimes I might reverse something my daughter says, or I might embellish her mood one day, or I might take something she told me and have Eve use it in the story in some way. As a writer, it’s great to have your source material available at any time. Even better when it’s someone you love, because your heart goes into the character, and that character becomes part of you.

So, yeah, Eve is special to me. And I hope you like her, too.
