What is your book, City of Toys, about? 
Well, it’s about four beautiful women who seek fame and fortune in Hollywood, the City of Toys, where actresses are like dolls, playing pretend on the big screen.

• Marlo: a former child actress from New York City.
• Rhonda: a small-town beauty queen.
• Kim: a “nice Jewish girl” with a painful childhood.
• Guyla: a “serious actress” with a debilitating, stress-induced illness.

Marlo, Rhonda, Kim, and Guyla become friends living in the same apartment complex, in the city where dreams and disasters go hand-in-hand. They come to rely on each other as they deal with sexual come-ons, crazed stalkers, jealous starlets and the constant pressure of trying to make it in showbiz. But when the pressure gets too much, will their friendship save them or will the City of Toys break them? City Of Toys is a Valley Of The Dolls for the #MeToo era.

I am also excited to announce that my film/TV treatment for City Of Toys – it would make a great movie or series – has been an official selection for two screenplay competitions: Script Summit and Inroads Screenwriting Fellowship. I am still shopping my treatment around!

City Of Toys has also been recently released on Audiobook.

What inspired this story?
It was inspired by my years as a struggling actress when I was living in Hollywood. It’s a work of fiction, but inspired by actual events. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Lots of scary and disturbing things happen to my four lead characters, as they did to me.

I was the typical aspiring starlet with stars in my eyes, and I was pretty naive about the mechanics of the movie industry. Again, I can’t mention the actual names of the strange people I encountered, so I created a fictional account. The story is very gritty and real, I pull no punches. Fasten your seat belt when you read my book! The famous and powerful are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. The one-person operations who run their office out of a steaming hot room in North Hollywood are just as bad, if not worse. It’s pretty frightening what goes on out there.

Tell us a little about you, who is Lindy S. Hudis?
I’m a graduate of New York University, where I studied drama at Tisch School of the Arts. I also performed in a number of Off-Off Broadway theater productions while living in New York City. Then I just starting writing.

I am the author of several titles, including a romance suspense novel, Weekends, and a crime novel, Crashers. I write a bit of erotic romance including The S&M Club, The Backstage Pass, Guitar God, The Guitarist, and The Mile High Club.

Back during my acting days I appeared in the television daytime drama Sunset Beach, also Married with Children, Beverly Hills 90210, and the feature film Indecent Proposal.

My hubby and I, Hollywood stuntman Stephen Hudis, live in California with our two teenagers, four cats, and one crazy Chihuahua! When I’m not writing I’m running the kids around to their gymnastics lessons, music lessons and football practice. My daughter wants to be a model and my son wants to be a rock star! Go figure!
