The author of novels like DATING DEAD MEN, DATING IS MURDER, DEAD EX, and A DATE YOU CAN’T REFUSE is Harley Jane Kozak. Yes, the same Harley Jane Kozak who also – in her previous life as an actor – starred in classic films like PARENTHOOD, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY and ARACHNOPHOBIA.

And Harley will be joining us at the September Salon!

The next Salon is TONIGHT Monday, September 13th at the Culver Hotel in Culver City. See you there!
