5 Star Review: For those of us who read Ann Crawford’s books, Fresh off the Starship is yet another one of her visionaries, metaphysical, fantastical, unique stories.

Ann uses imagination along with humor to introduce us to a star being traveling light years in order to help humanity.

The landing location was supposed to be Washington DC, but even in light-year travel, mistakes can happen. The star being lands in a small, country town in Kansas. Unlike the Wizard of Oz, this star being accidentally lands in the body of Missy.

With a mission to help humanity, our visitor is given the gift of discovery of life and love on Earth.

This unexpected journey will introduce you to characters who in their own way remind the reader of the goodness in humanity.

Quote from Book: “Braving the snowstorm, Missy heads out to the stable. The horses poke their heads over the stall walls, obviously hoping for some food. She takes down the food sack hanging by the door. After giving them all a treat, she stands by Diamond Girl. She nuzzles her muzzle, pressing her cheek against the horse’s face. “Bashiran, you around?” she calls out. “Are you there? I am completely messing up this project! So much for being incognito.” No answer, although the barn cats rustling in the rafters raise her hopes for a few seconds. She turns back to her friend and throws her arms around her neck, letting Diamond Girl’s glorious mane absorb her tears.”

We all take things in life for granted. Author Ann Crawford is a gifted writer, who has a talent for finding the good in situations and in humanity.

I hope you will enjoy this Romantic Comedy as much as I did.

5 Star Review: “Life In The Hollywood Lane” is a woman’s fictional (chick-lit) where the story-line depicts the journey of a young woman who goes to Hollywood to make it big. As someone who has never even visited Hollywood, I found this story very interesting, heartwarming, funny, and sad as a friendship ends with a tragedy.

Many young girls feel like Trish (main character) as they compare themselves to others and think of themselves as the ugly duckling. Most young girls would give an eye tooth for Trish’s beautiful curly red hair and warm glow of freckles. Not Trish. When Trish left her Wisconsin hometown, she left behind the good, the bad, and even her loss.

Striking out on her own, Trish soon met Cyndi at an audition and the two became the best of friends. Trish saw Cyndi as the beauty she longed to be. Trish didn’t realize that underneath the beauty comes same life experiences, situations and emotions, as both girls chase their own Hollywood dreams.

Author Ann Crawford writes this unique story, while educating her readers on “Life In Hollywood Lane.” As I read, I believed that Ann was writing from some of her own life experience. Ann Crawford is an award-wining documentary filmmaker. She has traveled the globe and I can see these experiences woven ever so slightly into the story.

I love Trish’s story and Ann’s writing style. I believe each reader will come away with something of their own. For example, I never thought about the color orange as a universal color. Let me quote the main character Trish (LA Actress) from the chapter titled “Fifty Shades of Orange.”

“October is always orange. No matter where I am in the world—at least in the Northern Hemisphere—October comes in orange. Wisconsin is a pumpkin orange. Bordeaux, France, is a soft orange. Northern California is a gentle orange. Florida is a bold orange. Russia, China, Japan—they’re all their own oranges. How did I get lucky enough to travel to so many places? Well, without much makeup and with brown or blonde hair color, I can look a whole range of oddball characters, from a crack addict to a hillbilly to a psych-ward patient to a prostitute. So, I actually get a lot of work as unknown, unmemorable characters. I’m the loud, ugly, angry woman in the crowd behind a lynching (ugh!) or a burning at the stake (ugh!). It’s a good thing I can look so unmemorable because I can keep getting roles like this.”

It seems to me that going to Hollywood is much like playing a lottery. You might win big, you might win here and there, or you might lose, but you will learn something from the experience.

If you enjoy stories where girls reach for the stars, overcome life’s situations and excel beyond their imagination, this book is a good fit for you. What were your dreams in your youth, or what are your dreams today? Are you willing to strike out on your own like Trish, to broaden your horizon?

I endorse “Life In Hollywood Lane” by Ann Crawford as a story filled with optimism, inspiration, and coming full circle to end with love.
