About the Author

Helen Walsh is the founder and president of Diaspora Dialogues, Canada's premier literary mentoring organization. Formerly the publisher of the Literary Review of Canada and a founding director of Spur, a national festival of politics, arts, and ideas, Walsh spent five years working as a film/digital media producer in L.A. and New York. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

"With bated breath, I fell deeper and deeper into the complex and intricate mystery so artfully created by Helen Walsh. Jane's world felt both familiar and unlike one I'd ever seen before. Pull Focus is like a shot of adrenaline ... with every page, you keep wanting more." -- Deepa Mehta, film writer and director
"In the end, I couldn't put this novel down. Pull Focus is a propulsive mystery of financial machinations, international malfeasance, and sexual impropriety, but it starts off deceptively, as a sardonic romp among film festival glitterati. The multi-talented woman at the heart of the whirlwind needs to smooth-talk arts board members, play tough with dangerous scoundrels, and manage all of this in the midst of romantic convulsions." -- Antanas Sileika, author of Provisionally Yours
"Part Real Housewives, part grown-up Nancy Drew, Pull Focus gleefully skewers all players in the international film scene while deftly unspooling a good old-fashioned thriller. Walsh creates a world of glamourous parties, dirty money, and weaponized sex." -- Missy Marston, author of Bad Ideas
"A spellbinding debut from Helen Walsh, Pull Focus is a tense, sexy, emotionally charged thriller. Jane, its resourceful, outspoken, often witty central character will not allow herself to be defeated by the dangerous forces that conspire to end her career and, perhaps, her life." -- Anna Porter, author of Deceptions
"Two thumbs up for action, suspense, and lust." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
