Stars Collide by Janice Thompson

Janice Thompson has brought Hollywood right into your front room with her book, Stars Collide.  You see the stars, Angie (Kat) and Jack (Scott)  on and off the stage.  As they deal with the paparazzi and Kat's eccentric Grandmother, a Hollywood oldie goldie.  I think Grandma Lenora almost stole the main spot with her wackienss, fun loving, off beat and unusual, quirky, erratic behavior.  Thompson takes the readers on and off the stage in this delightful book.  Janice makes the scene changes smooth and easy, you don't get lost in switching back and forth on and off the set. The author makes you feel like you are really backstage on a scene set or setting in real life with the characters.  The author deals with Alzheimers, father abandonment and other issues all through the book.  Deals with true love overcoming  the obstacles that real life brings our way with God's forgiveness and grace. Stars Collide is full of wit, romance, drama and award winning characters.  This was a very fun book to read. I totally loved this book and I'm sure young and old alike will enjoy Janice's Stars Collide.

New Series Takes Readers Into the Glamorous Life of a Hollywood Sitcom Celebrity and Her Quest for Love

From author who is a seasoned screenwriter with an insider’s perspective on the entertainment industry, comes the first book Stars Collide in the new series from Janice Thompson, “Backstage Pass.”

In Stars Collide, Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom—they are also head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps.

But when Kat's grandmother, an aging Hollywood starlet with a penchant for wearing elaborate evening gowns from Golden Age movies, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of their control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids tomorrow? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed in-laws?

From the sound stage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean, Stars Collide takes readers on a roller-coaster tour of Tinseltown, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked the story. And yes, Lenora was meant to be a main character. As you've probably noticed, my "sub"-characters always have a key reason for being there. Lenora appears in the next two books, as well.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm tickled that you liked the book!
