Another day, another roman clef:
The editor in chief of Here s Hollywood is a peripheral presence in the story she s never even named. That s probably wise: When Stephanie Green, a former Star researcher, tried to write a roman clef starring an evil Fuller surrogate, American Media sued to stop publication. The case is still tied up in court.
But [Author] Tegnelia is also canny enough to know that invoking her ex-boss name is good marketing. If Bonnie Fuller is in your pitch, people are excited, she said.
More excited than if, say, you pitched them a memoir?
