DESCRIPTION:

Working Girl meets What Remains, this is the behind-the-scenes story of an unlikely friendship between America’s favorite First Son, John F. Kennedy, Jr. and his personal assistant, a blue-collar girl from the Bronx.

The Kennedys have captured the American imagination for fifty years, and the public’s enduring fascination with Camelot continues to this day. Now, former personal assistant and dear friend of JFK, Jr. and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, RoseMarie Terenzio has waited for more than a decade to share her unique, intimate, and extraordinary perspective of life behind the Kennedy curtain.

Upon first meeting, RoseMarie was not immediately impressed with JFK, Jr. In an awkward yet comedic encounter, she walked into her office to find that John had begun dismissively boxing up her personal belongings and moving them to a smaller office, including her prized, autographed Howard Stern photo. As she gave him a piece of her mind, people stood around gaping that she would dare speak to JFK, Jr. that way. But John loved her moxie and eventually asked her to become his personal assistant and publicist—and years later she would become one of his closest confidantes, as well as Carolyn’s.   For five years RoseMarie witnessed John’s dating, politics, his marriage…

All of life’s a wicked stage and love a dangerous drama…

“A fascinating portrayal of London’s theatrical milieu…Ware again proves she can intertwine fact and fiction to create an entertaining and harmonious whole.”

-Publishers Weekly

If Shakespeare had a sister…

In 18th century London the glamorous Drury Lane and Covent Garden theatres were all the rage, beckoning every young actor, actress, playwright, and performer with the lure of the stage lights. But competition and back-biting between theatre owners, patrons, actors, and writers left aspiring playwrights with their work stolen, profits withheld, and reputations on the line. For a female, things were harder still, as the chances of a “petticoat playwright” getting past the government censor was slim.

In this exciting and cutthroat world, a young woman with a skill for writing and an ambition to see her work performed could rise to glory, or could…

DESCRIPTION:

The films of the forties and early fifties depended on lighting and sounds to convey terror. They didn’t have the advantage of color and computer graphics nor did they delve into the same level of gore and violence that we see today. Such was the world of Brandon, a young impressionable boy who watches a Frankenstein movie on television one night and begins a trek through life in an ever deepening spiral of FEAR of the grey men and shadowy characters of these early films.

Losing his father to a hit and run driver and his mother to her own mental hell, Brandon leaves home in suburban Detroit, seeking sanity in Florida. He arrives in Washington, DC and decides to earn a little money as a dishwasher before continuing his journey. He stays and eventually begins to see hope in his dark tunnel and a few life changing events begin to lift his spirits.

Killing His Fear takes place almost entirely in the District of Columbia. This is Wren’s second book about a serial killer. It is a work of fiction, but the events are well within the realm of possibility. Brandon may be on a track to coming…
