VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED by Cindy Roesel

Congrats to:

It's "Sex and the City" meets "Broadcast News!"

Viewer Discretion Advised is a fast-paced book full of quick-witted dialogue that’s so true-to-life of what happens in the news room because author, Cindy Roesel is an Emmy-award winning anchor, reporter and producer, so she knows first-hand what goes on behind the scenes! And while Viewer Discretion Advised is fiction, I wonder what Cindy threw in there that is true – because there are plenty of juicy little details that’ll have you scratching your head while reading! 

Blurb:

Live from Miami... The sensationalism shown on television can only be topped the the drama that happens behind the camera.  After being fired from her job in Los Angeles, Charlene “Charley” Thomas moves to sizzling Miami and begins working as a news director at a local television station. While getting used to her new gig, Charley wakes up to the fact that her station manager, Jonathan Lefton, is the boss from hell who will do anything for a story no matter who gets hurt in the process. When nude photos of noon anchor, Miranda Andrews, are discovered in the men’s room of a Key West bar, all hell breaks loose. They end up on Lefton’s desk and soon he promotes her over the main anchor, sparking off a firestorm. Miranda’s quickly thrown into the mix and assigned special reports. Charley finds herself overseeing an investigation that could shine light on the guilt of a dirty cop. Real life begins to mimic the drama of broadcast news when station personalities face life and death all for ratings and Emmys!

I would love to interview Abraham Lincoln. He was truly a great American leader. And I would also love to interview Audrey Hepburn. She lived through so much personal and private pain, that I would've loved to get to know her.
