Carol Hollenbeck - Author of Novel True Blondes
“TRUE BLONDES” - A STORY FOR ALL
(Book Review – 2012)
By Dulcy Brightman

Many years ago I attended a very lavish Holiday Party at New York City’s Main Library on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue. The main hall of the New York Public Library was decorated with Poinsettia, garlands, and other greenery. The high ceilings and beauty of the marble below my feet, and surroundings only highlighted the festive room.

It was a special party. It was for television producers, their guests, distinguished members of New York City Government, and artists from all five boroughs of New York City. The room was filled with people in lavish cocktail dresses, smartly tailored business suits or tuxedos. You could practically feel the deep black velvet worn by some women with distinct fashion savvy.

I was one of the invited people who sparked in her vanilla crepe blouse, and velvet skirt. I observed the room with smiling people holding glasses of champagne, and finger foods of all kinds both salty and sweet. Suddenly, a stunning woman with blond hair, long eye lashes, and a cheeky smile, knocked into me. It was none other than famed author and writer, Carol Hollenbeck. We chatted about her 1950’s novel, and other projects of hers. Before you know it, I had invited Carol and her friend, Chocolate Waters, famous for her book “Poet Laureate of Hell‘s Kitchen“, to help me review current Feature Films from every major movie company. Chocolate was exceptionally witty, and charming as was the humorous Carol.

Carol, this past May 2012, reminded me that she and Chocolate had done reviews on several of my shows for “Reel People Review” in the early 1990’s. I was astounded as I had not recalled this, as at the time I was producing two simultaneous television (series) shows, as well as writing and editing them. Carol was no stranger to long hours of work, and so it was we had mutual respect for our ongoing ambitions.

This year, Carol, announced to me that she was to have published her exciting, amusing, heartbreaking and heartwarming novel, “TRUE BLONDES”. This book gives a solid unnerving perspective of victims of domestic abuse.

Twenty percent of sales of “TRUE BLONDES” are to benefit the Safe Horizons Domestic Violence Organization.

Carol Holland is writing/producing theater, and telling us about her fabulous trip to Paris!
