A Brush With Fame
Melinda Hazen, author
Rafaella Hamilton, a makeup artist in L.A., has been called to a movie set for a one-day sub position. After dropping her pen, a stranger picks it up and returns it. He takes the opportunity to engage in small talk with her, slightly teasing her for mistaking him as part of the production team. Rafaella doesn't realize until later that she's just met the movie's lead actor, heartthrob Evan Hutchinson. At the end of the day, Rafaella is offered a job to finish out the film. She accepts, not realizing her life is in for a dramatic change.
