5-star editorial reviews! Quirky, heart-opening, funny, poignant, up, down, and everywhere in between—that’s life and that’s Life in the Hollywood Lane.
Trish, an LA actor, is bereft with guilt after her best friend commits suicide. Glamorous yet tough-as-nails Hollywood is Trish’s backdrop and a reflection of her life as she stumbles on through an actor’s life of casting calls and premieres, rejection and acceptance. Slowly Trish releases the idea of how her life should be and embraces the messy, flawed, yet stunningly beautiful truth of how it is.
Trish’s humorous resilience and acceptance lead to transformation, surrender, and ultimately love. Author Ann Crawford’s trademark optimism for life and love shine through in this inspiring story that reminds us all that no matter what the question, love is always the answer.
Life in the Hollywood Lane is chockablock with LOL and aha moments. Also, know any folks who’ve been chasing a long-held dream? Do them a favor and gift them this book!
Ann Crawford is a world-traveling, high-flying, deep-diving and life-loving (all literally!) prolific writer. She has lived...oh, all over...and right now home is near Denver. In addition to being the bestselling author of five books, she's also an award-winning filmmaker and humanitarian. Ann believes in love at first sight, that good always prevails, and that we're here for those wildwonderfulwayoutthere visions of ours to come alive.
My book features an actor, but it's really for any artist or anyone who's been pursuing a dream and would love to see it come alive. Know someone who has a long-held desire? Do him or her a favor and gift them this book!
Life in the Hollywood Lane
“Be crystal clear about what you want,” I said. “Set the intention that what you want is here now. Give thanks that it’s done. Take care of your affairs full on, no slouching—go to the gym, pay your bills early, things like that. Life doesn’t reward shirking or laziness or malingering. Enjoy the rest of your life so much that you don’t need it…whatever that it is you’re waiting for. Live in gratitude and as love. Just create a life so wonderful that the dream—the relationship, the part, the whatever—is the rose on the icing of the cake. It’s coming. Just enjoy now. That’ll help it happen faster. And it won’t matter if it does or not, because you’re happy with life and yourself now. That’s all that really matters.”
