"City of Toys" is the next novel from Lindy S. Hudis. This story was inspired by her actual experiences as an aspiring actress in the frightening jungle known as Hollywood. 

Four beautiful women, each with their own demons driving them towards the fame and fortune they so desperately seek, come together in Hollywood, the land of shattered dreams and broken hearts. Marlo, the tough-talking, former child actress from New York, Rhonda, the small town beauty queen, Kim, the "nice Jewish girl" with a painful childhood, and Guyla, the "serious actress" with a debilitating, stress-induced illness, all meet and reside in the same apartment building deep in the heart of Hollywood.

Each of these fame-hungry women experiences one painful disaster after another—from casting directors behaving in sexually inappropriate ways, to crazed stalkers and jealous, mentally deranged starlets hounding them. They begin to rely upon one another to get through the horrific maze called Hollywood. But when the pressure gets too much, will their friendship be enough to save them in the City Of Toys?

Coming soon, CRASHERS! A new mystery/crime novel!

"City of Toys" is available now at Fictionwise as an electronic download.

Weekends is a very extreme and intense story....To say that it’s not for the faint of heart is an understatement....I found Weekends to be a very well written story with amazing characterization, riveting scenes and tender romances. I couldn't put it down.

-- Joyfully

"In my opinion, with time and practice, Hudis will reach the level of James Patterson and Mary Higgins Clark. She promises to be an international bestseller. Weekends marks the beginning career of an important romantic-suspense writer. I couldn’t put it down, and when I discovered the antagonist, I screamed! You will too. A must read."

--Marti Tucker, author "The Mayor's Wife".
