I was blown away by this book! "Tamara Hunney", spins a cautionary tale while bringing the reader on an adventure filled with nail-biting anxiety. Tamara is a young world-wise and weary girl whose treacheries past and present assault the reader with surgical precision, cutting to the core of a world gone wrong. She meets up with an unlikely hero, Sam a Christian cowboy, and they embark on a trek through blinding blizzards and the blistering desert in search of other survivors and a sense of the formal "normalcy" of their country. Sam lifts off the page making sense to the reader the way a good friend does. He illuminates a bitter truth we all have been facing concerning the ruin of his beloved country. Tamara Hunney is an important story of hope prevailing through the actions of people who dig down and survive, who contain in their souls the true American spirit. From an America in bleakness beyond compare, the smallest thread of hope appears. The story pulls on that thread until it is a bright shining beacon, not just for Sam and Tammy, but for all of mankind. The question, unanswered to the bitter end of this page-turner: will that hope come to fruition or is it the end for all? The novel is a blend of terror and tenderness that writer Kendrew Lascelles manages with great detail and depth. "Tamara Hunney" is a novel of our times, for our times: Both a story and a warning. The horror and destruction depicted in this story could very well happen. And when? Tomorrow, honey.

Bio availaible under www. Kendrew Lascelles. IMDB I penned the screenplay Focus for the late Arthur Miller, as he did not think his novel would make a movie, and against the challenge of his saying, tell Kendrew if I say no it's no forever. He said yes. It's a good little movie starring William H. Macy and Laura dern, produced by Robert A. Miller and Michael Bloomberg (yes, Mayor Of NYC) and directed by Neal Slavin. My other movie, all mine, was based on Eichmann's trial in Israel when he confessed of a clash he had with Himmler over Himmler's secretive dealing with Manfred Weiss and his Hungarian heavy machinery factories. This piece exits in theatrical play format, but I fear the director rather botched my screenplay by rewriting (for want of a verb) it himself. My plays are in several outdated publications and I am now solely concentrating on writing novels, torrid romance adventure and all that.
