Christa Warning

There is a new "book" out on Christa Helm, self-published in April via Createspace. It's overpriced at $7.99 for a mere 44 pages but it also STEALS most of its contents from the above online bio of the murdered actress that John O'Dowd and I co-wrote ten years ago. 

I'm not going to name the author but I am warning you now. No matter how interested you are in Christa's case, save your money, don't support thieves, and read almost the exact same thing online here:

1974 Christa Article

Click on this to read a surprisingly detailed article about Christa from nearly a year before the BROKE premiere. In fact, it sounds like this interview/audience was conducted after the shooting in Haiti but before Ron Walsh was brought in to finish the film in the US.The article not only namechecks Joe Namath (she got that a lot) but also Nicole, Gary and even Lennie.
