June Release By: Ruth Kaufman My Life as an Extra June 15, 2017 The Plot: Chicagoan Marla Goldberg must rebuild her life at forty-one after an unexpected di- vorce. While adjusting to singlehood, trying to improve conditions at the radio station where she’s an account executive and fit in with her successful family, she dips her toes into the daunting dating pool. Marla yearns to fulfill her dream of being a working actor, yet can’t quite believe, “Leap and the net will appear.” Working as an extra teaches her meaningful lessons, but she must learn what for her is the hardest lesson of all: how to feel special when you’re not the star. Reviews Welcome. Biography: Ruth Kaufman’s latest release is the humorous women’s fiction novel My Life as an Extra, soon to be followed by My Life as a Star and perhaps more books with “My” in the title.

Accolades include 2016 Booksellers’ Best Award Best Historical and Best First Book winner and Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® winner.
