Rina Lazarus

Anyone read Faye Kellerman’s books? I love them and devour them. Today I finished her latest – Blindman’s Bluff. An awesome book, as usual. My obsession with her books started a while ago. I am a longtime fan of her husband’s books – Jonathan Kellerman. So I decided to pick up a book of Faye’s to see if there was a similar style and I got hooked. Now their son Jesse is a successful writer in his own right. THEN my friend Lisa who lives on Canada’s west coast told me she had read a book and the character in it reminded her so much of me, she just had to send me the book so I could read it for myself. The character was Rina Lazarus – an orthodox Jewess who covers her hair and wears denim skirts, has sons, is a gutsy woman, gets remarried to an older guy…  There were a lot more similarities. Every time I read one of her books somehow Rina looks like me in my imagination, and her husband, the police detective, looks a lot like my KoD!!

So Hollywood, when you want to make one of her books into a movie – I don’t mind playing the role of Rina Lazarus. I’m just saying.

Have you ever read a book and seen yourself as one of the characters? What book? What character?
