Interview with Lindy DeKoven - Author of Primetime Princess

You know when you start a book and you immediately get sucked in and you can't stop reading? That awesome feeling that's like no other? That's what happened with me and Primetime Princess. It's not a story for everyone, but it's a story for people, especially women, trying to make it in the entertainment business.
