Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at TV land, drawing on her experiences as a screenwriter. She is the author of the Weddings by Bella series, Stars Collide, and Hello, Hollywood! She lives in Texas.
Janice Thompson spins a story full of humor and crazy family dynamics in this colorful inside look at Hollywood with a healthy dose of romance.
Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She’s the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. But her life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could get her family to behave as well as her stars do! When she starts butting heads with handsome camera operator Jason Harris, it’s enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life—and love—as it comes?
Joy In Our Journey's Review (written by guest reviewer, Jan):
Sometimes a past experience is reflected in a book you are reading. Director's Cut for me was just that book. My husband worked in television production in Hollywood for a number of years, and the stories he brought home sounded much like this book - stranger than fiction. Tia's story is just crazy enough to have happened in that crazy town.
How could an uptight, perfectionist, award-winning director cope with her off-the-wall family, boy-crazy sister, and a cast to work with that is at once fun, kind, caring, and also a little crazy, and still keep on with her life? How can she overcome her reluctance to trust anyone of the male persuasion, and find that man God has for her, if there is such a person? In Hollywood, it is no problem. The land of fantasy sometimes becomes reality. How Tia not only finds that one true love and allows him into her crazy life and her not-exactly-typical family, is a story that you enjoy. You will laugh at her inept brothers who are remodeling her house; you will breath a sigh of relief when she puts another great show into the "can", and rejoice when she admits her need of that special man. Read and enjoy!
The Director's Cut is available June 2012 at your favorite bookseller - from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
