Just like the movies, you are on edge until the very end! Ms. Cobb’s self described “faction” about life as a Hollywood screenwriter is as funny as it is poignant. Having lived and worked all over “Hell-A” for nearly 15 years, I could relate to the trials and tribulations of life in the city of angels even though I was not in the entertainment industry. I voraciously read the book every night until I reached the climatic ending- enjoying each twist and turn along the way.

Welcome to Hell-A, Liz Bradbury’s name for L.A. in this hilarious spoof on Hollywood. Liz, the eponymous screenwriter, will go so far to get her unjustly abandoned script produced, she even takes a movie star and producer hostage on a wild car chase through Beverly Hills. Hell-A Rule #6 (out of 49 interspersed doozies) states: “To succeed in the screenwriting business, you have to have more than faith. You have to have more than talent. You must have some family history of mental illness.” There’s a bite to all the craziness. As Sharon Cobb, a screenwriter herself with movie and television credits, says in her send-up of a disclaimer, “This is a work of faction.” She shares some of Liz’s reckless bravado: the novel is strewn with tongue-in-cheek yet hard-hitting and often insightful digs at the fame, riches, and box-office obsessed world of commercial movie-making. So UNbuckle your safety belts and go along with Liz for a rip-roaring ride.

At 2:something this am, I finished False Confessions of a Hollywood Screenwriter.” Liz Bradbury’s admirable and enviable antics made for compelling reading. Today, Liz is my hero. Ms. Cobb is a magnetic writer. Her inclusion of multi-dimensional stories to support Liz’s caper takes you on a journey of giggles, pathos, and generated of a lotta’ attagirl’s. Can’t wait to read the NEXT Liz Bradbury novel – and see this book as a movie, I hope!

Sharon Y. Cobb has done it again. Her wit and humor have taken her Hollywood screenwriting experiences to a new level in her hilarious novel. This book had me laughing out loud and wondering what zany thing happens next with each page turned. I can only imagine that every screenwriter (me included) who reads this has at one time or another considered doing something similar with his/her own agent. Bravo, Sharon! Hope to see “Liz” back in print very soon. And on the screen!

When does the movie come out? Both the Wife and I enjoyed this journey back to Hollywood. Lived their 13 years as a professional drummer. It brought up both good and bad memories. A quick fun read. What an incredable writer, Cobb doesn’t miss a beat. Enjoy. We did.

False Confessions is a trip. Not only is Cobb masterful as she weaves the past with the present in this comedy about a screenwriter gone mad, she also makes you feel you are right there with “Liz,” the former race car driver, as she leads us through a thrilling chase scene toward an unexpected ending. I wish there was a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars, This is a hoot, August 3, 2011

This book is a hoot – it’s Hollywood at its whacky best. Sharon Y. Cobb has a tentpole here. (If you don’t understand the term, read the book.)
