Steel offers a bird's-eye-view of Hollywood's rich and famous, as a mother and writer's life is forever changed when she becomes a screenwriter. Emotional highs and lows fill the pages with a riveting story of love and new awakenings.

Tanya Harris is perfectly content with her Marin County life as a wife and freelance writer. When she's offered her dream job, to write a screenplay, the joy is bittersweet. To take the job, Tanya would have to live in L.A. and could only return home to her husband, Peter, and teenage children on the weekends. With the encouragement of Peter, she accepts the job and moves into a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. But life with the rich and famous doesn't change Tanya, who misses her family and enjoys her weekend and holiday trips home.

Yet when her family life begins to fall apart, her attraction to producer Douglas Wayne leads her life in a completely different direction. (Delacorte, Jul., 352 pp., $27.00)
