First Post-Divorce Biography of Actress/Mother, Woman of Mystery by NY Times best-Selling Author Marc Shapiro
RIVERDALE, NY”(March 19, 2013)”Pop culture publisher Riverdale Avenue Books (RAB) will release the e-book œWho is Katie Holmes? by best-selling author Marc Shapiro on Wednesday, March 20th. The unauthorized biography will be available through Amazon and other online retail outlets, and directly from RAB at http://riverdaleavebooks.com/books/33/who-is-katie-holmes-an-unauthorized-biography.
œKatie Holmes is not the typical Hollywood rags to riches story, says Shapiro. œIn true storybook fashion she came out of nowhere to become the next big thing with Dawson's Creek, but after her sudden stardom she became just another working actress. She did films that never boosted her back up the ladder to true stardom. She tossed her career away when she married Tom Cruise. Now, post TomKat, the fire is burning again and she has returned to her true love, with the possibility of true accomplishment. The Katie Holmes story we tell is something everyone, in varying degrees, has experienced and we can all relate to.
Shapiro's behind-the-scenes story reveals how a small town girl from Ohio seemingly had fulfilled her every dream “ until she discovered that there is a price to be paid for getting what you desire.
In œWho is Katie Holmes? Shapiro discloses new details of how Holmes got the strength to defy all odds and leave her Hollywood mega-star husband with her daughter in tow. Shapiro takes an unblinking look at her struggles and setbacks, giving us a view of an exceptionally strong person of character and compassion.
