“I created the Get Clever About e-books to help actors plan and prepare for success, methodically. As an actress, I believe that the best way to achieve our dreams is by being practical.

The first series is about acting in Los Angeles as a Canadian. The second series is about working in the voice over industry. -Lili Wexu, Author.
