About the Author

Raised in Los Angeles, Carla Malden began her career working in motion picture production and development before becoming a screenwriter.

Along with her father, Academy Award winning actor Karl Malden, she co-authored his critically acclaimed memoir When Do I Start?

More recently, Malden published Afterimage: A Brokenhearted Memoir of A Charmed Life, her own fiercely personal account of battling the before and surviving the after of losing her first husband to cancer. Afterimage is a journey through grief to gratitude that alerts an entire generation: this is not your mother's widowhood.

Carla's feature writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, highlighting the marvels and foibles of Southern California and Hollywood. She sits on the Board of the Geffen Playhouse. Search Heartache is her first novel.

Carla Malden lives in Brentwood with her husband and ten minutes (depending on traffic) from her daughter.

Reviews

Praise for Carla Malden
"I've spent my professional life telling stories. AfterImage does exactly that and touches us where we live. It is compelling, moving, raw--with moments of surprising humor. I try to leave my audiences with meaningful and enduring images from my movies. That's exactly what Carla Malden achieves with her newest book."
--Michael Douglas, actor The Kominsky Method and Romancing the Stone

"Carla Malden traces the awful journey of her young husband's illness and death with such precision and care, expressing the emotion between the exhilaration of hope and the darkness of reality so powerfully, that her eloquence turns grief into poetry and enlightenment."
--Blythe Danner, actress Will & Grace and Meet the Parents

"Carla Malden's memoir about her husband and screenwriting partner Laurence Starkman is a haunting story of love and loss, and a demonstration of the courage required to put a broken life together again."
--Susan Cooper, author of The Dark is Rising

"All I can say is WOW! I read for a living [and] never has one made me cry until I read this manuscript. Although this is a book that will tug at your heart, it is like the tug on a fishing line when you know you've got a big one. I can't wait to share it with others. This is more than a book, it's a blessing for anyone who reads it."
--Barry Kibrick, producer and host, Between the Lines

"Emotionally raw from start to finish, the story . . . also celebrates a rare and profound love that transcended death. A brutally candid memoir of the 'all-consuming and profoundly uncomplicated' power of grief."
--Kirkus Reviews
