A woman who has everything meets a man who can offer her nothing but trouble.

Kate Champion, a forty-two-year-old, married mother of two, leads an enviable upper class life of luxury. Her comfortable path takes an unexpected detour after a chance encounter at a neighborhood playground. Jaylee Inoa is a twenty-two-year-old, second generation New York Dominican with close ties to the Heights and the gangs that run them. Her life of privilege is no match for the code of the streets he navigates with ease. When a crime of the heart leads to a crime in the flesh, how far will she go to redeem him? Can she risk all in her life that is golden for the love of her golden-eyed man?

Mara White’s Top Ten Films (of all time)

This list is so difficult!  (The only one that might be more challenging is top ten books)
I feel like films can speak to so many different facets of our consciousness.  And whether or not you like or dislike them doesn’t always figure in to the equation of how much they affect you.  So all of the films listed here influenced me heavily at some point or another in my life –as to whether or not they influenced my writing is harder to determine.  However, each one left a deep impression on me.  I can’t possibly list them in order of more to less so I will list them in order of year released.

1.  Imitation of Life (1959) Douglas Sirk
2.  That Obscure Object of Desire "Cet obscur objet du désir" (1977) Luis Buñel
3.  Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Steven Spielberg
4.  Suburbia (1983) Penelope Spheeris
5.  Agnes of God (1985) Norman Jewison
6.  The Goonies (1985) Richard Donner
7.  The Lost Boys (1987) Joel Schumacher
8.  Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown "Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios" (1988) Pedro Almodóvar
9.  My Own Private Idaho (1991) Gus Van Sant
10.              Battle in Heaven "Batalla en el cielo" (2005) Carlos Reygadas
There are so many others that I feel terrible for leaving out but with only ten – these are the few that left the very deepest footprints.
