With roots and creative sensibilities in both America and France, Hubert de La Bouillerie first burst on the film scene as an editor, quickly becoming one of the most sought after talents in Hollywood. He cut over 30 top feature films and many major television projects before turning to directing and writing.
The film adaptation of Of Love And Evil The Birth is underway, as are parts two and three of the trilogy: Of Love And Evil The Pact and Of Love and Evil The Final Battle.
Brooke Mirande, a beautiful young heiress mourning the death of her mother, Helen Mirande, has just inherited full control of a multi-media empire. She rapidly finds herself torn between a love affair, with the gorgeous dot-com entrepreneur Robert Redman, and the strange, dark legacy of her mother. Aided by her friend, award winning journalist, Dani Bates, and her guerilla band of investigators, Brooke begins a desperate search for the truth of her heritage. A truth that reveals a conspiracy that could even include the love of her life, Robert Redman.
From its opening scene in the blood-spattered snow of Utah to its electrifying final sequence atop Manhattan's skyline, Of Love And Evil The Birth is a non-stop, action-filled thrill ride.
Complete and compelling on its own, Of Love And Evil The Birth is the first volume of an epic trilogy that promises to expand and deepen the intricate plot; the ultimate war between good and evil that is at the heart of this powerful story.
Why should readers pick up, Of Love and Evil the Birth?
Crisscrossing continents and centuries, this epic love story, that began over 400 years ago with a pact made with the Devil in the name of love, is played out against the backdrop of today's world of high technology and social media. Of Love And Evil The Birth is a masterwork of twisted imagination; a supernatural thriller to rival Rosemary's Baby and The Omen.
