Hooray for Hollywood!

Studio Relations, my love story set in the golden age of Hollywood, is now available on Amazon.
If you love watching old movies, then you will love this story. It has all the greats elements of a classic Hollywood film, from the brassy career woman to the handsome businessman who wins her heart.

Here's what being said about Studio Relations:

Who doesn't love the old black and white movies from the 1930s? "Studio Relations" captures the glamour of the era as well as the hard work and struggles with social change -- war soon, women's role.

Vivien is a fantastic character. She's assertive and competent, never simply bossy. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her fall in love.

And Weston...that whole stuffy businessman morphing into leading man thing -- loved it!

Studio Relations has the charm of the era it portrays.

Despite knowing a great deal about classic Hollywood thanks to my M.A. in Mass Communications, I had a blast doing research for this novel. It was fun to delve through books about 1930s Hollywood and to see how much Los Angeles had changed. Having lived in Los Angeles, it was also fun to see what classic Hollywood landmarks, such as the old MGM studios (where I used to work) still existed and which one, such as the Cocoanut Grove nightclub, had been lost to the past. I also enjoyed exploring the more glamorous side of the studio system and imagining what it would have been like to have lived and worked in 1935 Hollywood.

Studio Relations
by Georgie Lee

 Vivien Howard hasn’t forgiven Weston Holmes for almost derailing her career five years ago. Female directors in 1930s Hollywood are few and far between, and a man who coasts by on his good looks and family connections can’t possibly appreciate what it took for her to get to where she is. But when the studio head puts Weston in charge of overseeing Vivien’s ambitious Civil War film, she realizes she has a choice: make nice with her charismatic new boss or watch a replacement director destroy her dream.

Weston Holmes doesn’t know much about making movies, but he knows plenty about money. And thanks to the Depression, ticket sales are dangerously low. The studio can’t afford a flop—or bad press, which is exactly what threatens to unfold when an innocent encounter between Weston and Vivien is misconstrued by the gossip rags. The only solution? A marriage of convenience that will force the bickering duo into an unlikely alliance—and guide them to their own happy Hollywood ending.
