Going “Official”

Going “Official”

One of my big tasks for the start of the new year was to create an “official” author/screenwriter website. Let’s face it– it got a little confusing for people when they asked about the book website, and I sent them to “Dating in LA.”  I knew it had to be done, but because it was something that would take me […]

No. It’s 75 and sunny here (and yes, that’s a huge part of the reason I live in LA). What I mean is that the changes and challenges that usually occur in February have already started. For […]

My Letter to Fear Book Update

My Letter to Fear Book Update

If you are a long-time reader, you know that I have been working on a series of essays based on true stories—both mine and from a number of different women.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

  It’s that time of year again. You know me, I love making lists and New Year’s resolutions fit perfectly into that category. Every year my friends and I sit down and work out our resolutions for the following year and do a review on how we did in the previous 12 months.
