Dating dead men book review
After reading Dating Dead Men I do agree that there are a lot of similarities in their writing styles and that Kozak, with a little fine tuning, is on the right track to follow in Evanovich's footsteps.
Like Stephanie Plum, Kozak has created a hilarious and likeable female character in Wollie Shelly.
Wollie is meeting plenty of eligible bachelors but not falling in love, not until she stumbles over a dead body en route to Rio Pescado—a state-run mental hospital—and is momentarily taken hostage by a charismatic “doctor” who is on the run from the Mob.
At 19, having already performed in 30 plays, she went to New York's Lower East Side and was accepted into the professional acting training program at NYU's School of the Arts.
After two years on the soap opera Guiding Light, she moved to Los Angeles to appear on Santa Barbara where she met her end, being crushed to death by a giant letter "C." Kozak has appeared in more than a dozen television shows and feature films, including When Harry Met Sally as Billy Crystal's ex-wife, Parenthood, The Favor, and Arachnophobia.
Harley Jane Kozak was born in 1957, the youngest of eight children, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
Shortly after her birth, her father died and her mother moved the family to North Dakota and then to Lincoln, Nebreska to teach music at the university.
