Celebrate the release of Birds of California with NYT Bestselling author Katie Cotugno and journalist Meredith Goldstein at Trident!

About Birds of California:

Former child actor Fiona St. James dropped out of the spotlight years ago after a spectacularly public crash and burn. Crazy. Self-Destructive. She lost her mind. At least that’s what the tabloids said. Now in her late twenties, she’s finally regained a modicum of privacy, and she won’t let anything—or anyone—mess it up.

Sam Fox, who played Fiona’s older brother on the popular show Birds of California, loves the perks of being a Hollywood actor: attention, women, parties, money. So, when his current show gets cancelled and his agent starts to avoid his calls, Sam jumps at the chance to take part in a Birds of California revival. If nothing else, he could use the paycheck. He just needs to get Fiona St. James signed on, too.

Against her better judgment, Fiona agrees to have lunch with Sam. What happens next takes them both by surprise. Sam is enthralled by Fiona’s take-no-prisoners attitude, and Fiona finds a lovable goofball behind Sam’s close-up ready face. Long drives to the beach, late nights at dive bars…it’s the kind of Hollywood romance that Fiona hates. Except for when it happens to her, apparently. But Sam doesn’t know the full story behind Fiona’s breakdown. What happens when she reveals the truth behind her wild days?
