Liza Trevino, All That Glitters
About Liza Trevino:
Liza Treviño is an author whose time as a Hollywood Jane-of-all-trades has given her an insider’s view to a world most only see from the outside, providing the inspiration for creating a new breed of Latina heroine. In pursuit of adventure and a Ph.D., Liza moved to Los Angeles where she racked up quite a collection of Hollywood jobs, including script girl, producer assistant and production assistant. These experiences, along with her formative years spent on the I-35 highway connecting San Antonio, Austin and Dallas, combine to conjure a new kind of Hollywood rags-to-riches story.
About All That Glitters:
Alexandria Moreno—clever, sexy, ambitious and, at times, self-destructive. She blazes a path from Texas to Los Angeles at the dawn of the 1980s to make her dreams of becoming an A-list Hollywood film director come true. She and her best friend arrive in Los Angeles with little more than hope and the determination to make it big. Alex, a beauty as dark and mysterious as her scarred heart, stands at the bottom of the Hollywood mountain looking up, fighting for her chance to climb to the top. Will her quest to live fast and take no prisoners on her way to success destroy her in the end?
All That Glitters is a women’s fiction Jackie Collins-type saga that introduces a strong, driven Latina heroine at the center of a rags-to-riches story spanning a decade of action. Along the way, Alexandria walks the fine line separating ambition and self-destruction, and discovers that some sacrifices will cost her everything.
