Overview

As a young actress in a long-running TV show, Mai Rose's career path seemed clear.
But she wants more.
Already she's dumped the show and landed a role in a serious play, with serious actors and a more-than-serious director. And now another opportunity has arisen - a major fantasy film with a role that seems tailor-made for her.
The only problem being that she's in competition with four other scheming actresses to win the role.
Can she win the part? Does she want to win the part? She has to navigate her way through the demands of the press, the Russian billionaire owner of the newspaper running the competition, boyfriends past and present, her soldier brother and a particularly ambitious (read: nasty) competitor.
And all of them underestimate her.
Building towards an enthralling climax, Actress examines one person's struggle to come to terms with who she is, what's important to her and - most importantly - what she really wants.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - J Stevenson
Just finished Actress. Really liked the book. The story and writing flowed well. Mai Rose, a young up and coming actress, is an enjoyable character. She does what she feels is right for herself even though her friends and family might give her different advice. But in the end, Mai is on the road to being who she wants to be and does it all on her own. I'd definitely recommend the book.

My emotions while reading this book were all over the place. I like the book. I didn't like it. I enjoyed the story and was angry at times with the whole book. I was confused at times, but totally in agreement and understanding of the characters through the book. Towards the end I realized the author had me hooked by feeling what the characters were feeling and Mai's struggle through her own growth and emotions.

"Actress" is an excellent book about Mai Rose's career and the personal changes she's contemplating. I enjoyed the book from the beginning and through all the events leading up to the competition. "Actress" is a good read I recommend.
Awesome Indies - Tahlia Newland
This is a work that not only takes us deeply into the main character, but also carries us along on a plot peppered with surprises. The pacing is excellent and the actions of some of the characters are mysterious enough that I got an 'ah ha' moment when the truth behind them comes out in the end.
