Linda spent the holiday with friends and clients in LA, meeting with writers, directors and producers about exciting projects for the new year.
It was a pleasure to meet with authors, Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim for lunch at the Grill in the Alley, Beverly Hills to toast their first book, K-Town Confidential and the upcoming publication of their second book, Kat & Maus both published by Black Rose Writing.
A lawyer risks everything to find the truth about the stabbing of a popular Los
Angeles Councilman and the deeper she digs into Korea-town nightlife, the darker the secrets become.
Set in winter, in the spectacular Canadian Rockies, Kat & Maus tells the story of Mark Bell, a top Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney, who persuades his client to try and seduce his wife, Kat Connor. After discovering a hidden cache of journals and photos from his wife's past that documents her hidden sexual appetite, he decides to test her loyalty.
Linda also met with talented author, Wayne Avrashow
and his friend, film legend, Peter Saphier (Jaws, Scarface)
