Tinseltown Dreams...

Love & Death in Hollywood, 1982

When tinsel tarnishes it isn’t so pretty...

It’s 1982 and Hollywood is singing “Greed is Good” while fueled by dreams of success. Surrounding Kay Randall, a young, hard-working talent agent, are complex men and women living variations of Hollywood’s ‘80’s life-styles. Kay and her best friend, a boutique owner; a fading singer; a homicide detective; a world-renowned movie star; a man-about-town agency owner; a cabaret pianist, and a has-been "superhero" are mixed into a potent cocktail of Hollywood parties, a dead woman on Malibu beach, and an international organization that turns dreams into nightmares.

Hollywood glamour takes a backseat when danger is at the wheel...

The sequel to “Tinseltown Dreams” finds a deranged stalker and a smuggling ring bringing murder and mayhem to a Hollywood company filming in San Francisco.
