About the Author

Frederick G. Dillen was born in Greenwich Village to a family on fire, raised in a New Hampshire boarding school, and graduated from Stanford. To pay for his writing, he worked odd jobs from Lahaina to Taos and New York to L.A., managing a hotel and running a fake ranch, carrying plates and shilling for business. His short fiction has appeared in literary quarterlies and Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards. His Hero was named Best First Novel of 1994 by the Dictionary of Literary Biography. Dillen and his wife Leslie are parents of two grown daughters and three dogs and have settled, for good they hope, in New Mexico.

Reviews

BEAUTY is a heart-bursting gem of a novel--a love story, a riveting tale of high stakes intrigue, and a hero's journey that spins a contemporary twist on timeless values rooted deep in the American soul. Dillen's tightly crafted narrative is the modern working woman's Rocky. You will root for these vivid, off-beat characters waiting to leap up from the last pages with a fist pumping cheer for their hard earned redemption.--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN
"A feel-good story with a dash of romance." --Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Publishers Weekly"
"Kudos to Dillen for his unusual premise. The workplace drama that follows is rousing." --Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Kirkus Reviews"
"Dramatic and emotional...And it's nice to have a middle-aged heroine for a change."--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Library Journal"
"An absorbing story of one smart, hardworking woman handling the 'fat boys' of corporate leadership on their own turf, with masterfully developed characters and, as a bonus, a poignant romance."--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Booklist"
"[Dillen is a] thoughtful writer...the setting rings true for all who face the contemporary New England issues of overfishing, government regs and catch limits in real working towns whose history is bound up with hard-working fishermen...immensely enjoyable."--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Barnstable Patriot"
"The tiny seaside town is comforting in its claustrophobia, charming in its smelly fishiness. The characters...are round, colorful, and infused with emotion."--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "FefferBooks.com"
This book is a jewel that shines brighter with each turn of the page!--Carol Cassella, bestselling author of GEMINI and OXYGEN "Feathered Quill Book Reviews"
