Alana is an autobiography of a fictitious film star.
Everyone adored her-no one knew her. Born Billie Jo Payner in a small town in Texas, Alana grew up in an dysfuntional home; her sister's husband was physically abusive, her step father tried to molest her.
As a child she escaped into the movies, living her dream on the silver screen. Her dreams came true when Hollywood made her a star.
Why, then did Alana Paige suddenly abandon the spotlight?
Was she really the "ice queen" that Hollywood thought her or was she a woman with great passion, capable of violence?
"We had one theater in my home town and if there was enough money, Mama took my sister and me to an early movie every Friday when the feature changed. She would lean over to me and whisper, "See her? You'll be just as pretty when you grow up....' "
