BookLoons.com June 1, 2008 review by Tim Davis
"With a fond nod to Konstantin Stanislavsky - the legendary Russian actor, director, producer, and originator of the actor development process that came be known as Method Acting - The Actress is more than a top-notch mystery, it is also an intriguing character study in which personal emotions - either real or imagined - become the methodically constructed foundations for perceived - rather than authentic - behaviors and attitudes."
- A Book for All Seasons announces Elizabeth's appearance.
"How about an event that includes an award-winning author of five novels, one book of non-fiction and several short-stories, a percussionist with the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, a former reporter, a former corporate trainer, a former bookseller, and a member of Mensa International?
Elizabeth Sims will fit the bill on all counts!
