On Spec: A Novel of Young Hollywood

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, Apr 1, 2010 - Fiction - 192 pages

A brilliant, dead-on debut about what it takes to make it in today's Hollywood. On Spec follows the paths of six Hollywood hopefuls--a screenwriter, an agent, a development girl, an actress, a studio chef, and an aspiring producer--as they experience the pitfalls and payouts of life on the hollwood fast track. More than just a novel about the entertainment industry, On Spec is a parody of modern life, where winner takes all and the losers are tossed to the wayside without a second thought.
