Margot and Max know how to cope with the murderous egos, high flying aspirations, and obsessive dreams of moviedom’s biggest and most revered stars. They understand that, for some, Hollywood is a takeout heaven—send out for what you want and it will quickly be delivered. But what happens when what is so desired doesn’t arrive? In CLOSE-Up, our daring hero and heroine witness greedy players scheming to cultivate their own needs and desires—fabricating fame, fortune, and unfaithful friends. Author Kit Sloane's offbeat stories chronicle the intricacies of Hollywood film-making from the point of view of her protagonist, feature film editor Margot O'Banion and her significant other, director Max Skull. The first fiction editor of FUTURES Mystery Magazine, Kit is a longtime member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and Mystery Women of the UK. She was named one of Mills College's Literary Women for 2007. Kit and her professor husband live on a hilltop horse ranch in Northern California's sublime Lake County wine country.
