You Can Never Go Home Again

Thats a bunch of crap!
Well to be more specific ....I have been letting my fantasy filled mind drift back to memories and times that were happy for me. Before the kids, before the pile of bills, before life made me jaded and distrusting.
A time when young love and heartache ruled a teenage girls life and her dreams were hot and torrid and filled with longing. Friends that were close as sisters and giggles and secrets were shared. Home coming queen and a closet door covered in "love is..." cartoons cut out of the local paper.
The sound tract was Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, crocodile rock and dancing in the moonlight. The air was thick with the scent of apricots and every night was magical.
Tonight i connected with a very dear friend that i had thought i lost. She doesn't know it but she gave me a gift, the gift of youth. Tonight as i drift off to sleep im 15years old again, young and pretty and the whole world yet to discover.

I Missed My Moment!

Wow..where do i begin.
Deb my best friend and partner in crime called me on my birthday last year to convince me that i should publish one of the treatments i had written. I was opposed at first but threw caution to the wind and said ok lets do this! over the next 7 months there were endless phone calls, setbacks,and rewrites. I was  the annoying kid in the back of Debs car yelling "are we there yet"?!! Im sure on more than one occasion she wanted to back hand me from the front seat....HA!  
Well any way on with my grip.
My fantasy of what should have happened and what did happen could not have been more different.
What should have happened..
I pop the champagne and celebrate over dinner , or have a "invite only " cocktail party at my house.
What did happen...
I was at work when i received a call from Deb who just informed me i had" gone live". I said that's great can i call you back?

Sean Astin and his production team (Adopting Terror)were rolling into the studio and i was trying to get everybody settled, i also needed to collect paperwork and funds. Its was a cluster of bees all trying to get there questions answered 1st.

Meanwhile My other production (Vanished) was running behind because Mischa Barton was not feeling well, and all were converging at my desk at once.
Truth be told this was a pretty typical day in my world. Maybe its true the watched pot never boils! Then this book may be a runaway best seller..lol

Final Draft Update

Just a quick update... the draft was sent back this morning after i made a few corrections and additions.
Nothing major just a little more back story for Williams character.
Picture the tax accountant that has a client who gives him his year end receipts neatly organized and color coded, making it so easy for the accountant to file his taxes.
THIS WAS NOT ME! What i did to my best friend was hand her a shoebox of receipts and then stood over her saying "is it done yet".So a special thanks to Deb Warner who pulled  all my notes together and help me produce my 1st. book.
Now comes the scary part, when i show it to all of you! YIKES...lol

The Intern Teaser


In the cutthroat world of Beverly Hills real estate, Lisa is the undisputed queen. She has a network of operatives that would be the envy of the CIA. Though she can see the vaguest signs and portents that will point to a fat commission, Lisa did not see William in her arena until it was too late. Her boss – and former lover – Phil saddled her with an Intern who was all wrong. He was too well put together. He knew too much way too soon. He was way too good looking. And worst of all for Lisa, he seemed to see beyond her mask and into her soul. Who was William? What did he really want? These questions plague Lisa, but the one that troubles her most is the one she asks of herself - Why can't she stop thinking about him?

Look for a scintillating excerpt soon!

Your Circle of Friends

Well now i know why the rich and famous hire "people".
Its because the are paid to be positive.Its shocking how well meaning people can be so brutally honest and destroy any self confidence you may have.
I know im new at this, and i have illusions of grandeur, but they are my illusions and my right to have them.
Every boy in a garage band, every girl with a tutu, dreams of money and success beyond their wildest dreams.This does not change just because you grow up!
My book is not about world peace, its not the cure for the common cold, I never said it was.
All i want to do is make someone happy while they sit poolside and give them a few hours of tantalizing escapism and yes my big dream is to make a living at this and buy a home in Malibu.

Im ending this blog with a quote from Oprah...

"Every time you state what you want or believe, you're the first to hear it. It's a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don't put a ceiling on yourself."
