Audition for Murder
(Audiobook available on Cassette & CD)
Produced by Books In Motion

When Morgan Taylor runs into Lily London backstage at an audition, the ageing ham actress is playing her final—and arguably her most convincing—role…as a corpse.

Finding herself suspect number one in the murder investigation is bad enough, Morgan has also inherited a half-share of Lily's dog Hamlet—a rat with attitude. Still, at least her mother's pleased that she's finally met an eligible guy—even if he is the cop in charge of the murder case.

Only, as the body count rises, Morgan finds herself playing detective. After all, she's an actress. She's seen NYPD Blue. How hard could it be to catch the murderer and grab herself a man?

"a sparkling, first mystery…will have readers applauding for an encore"

There’s No Such Thing as a Chanukah Bush,
Sandy Goldstein

(Video available on DVD)
Available from SISU Home Entertainment, Inc.

Christmas is the worst time of year for Robin. That’s because she has to face the same question again: Does her being Jewish really man she can’t have a Christmas tree and be a part of all the excitement around her? It doesn’t help at all that her classmate, Sandy Goldstein, has a Chanukah bush; it only makes her non-Jewish friends ask Robin more questions. But help does come—from unexpected sources: Robin’s grandfather and a Christmas party!

“Sussman's small narrator Robin relates a tender story about ecumenical fellowship, depicted attractively in Robinson's drawings…. With his wisdom and love, the grandfather widens the child's understanding, as Sussman does for the reader of her endearing story.”
