About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation writer/publisher
Location Los Angeles, CA, United States
Introduction At 74, I'm enjoying my retirement from a twenty year career as a desktop publisher, which followed a career as an actress in both mainstream film and theater and underground (yes many were pornographic)films. Before that, I was a dancer. Even made it to a lead role in a Broadway show, The Pajama Game, in 1955. In 1957, when the show closed in New York, I toured South Africa with it. Heady stuff.
Interests writing, gardening, supporting the artistic endeavors of all my pals, crossword and sudoku puzzles, reading trashy historical novels and contemporary commentary.
Favorite Movies Fantasia. It Happened One Night, Casa Blanca, Everything by Woody Allen, Mama Mia, Chicago, Moulin Rouge
Favorite Music Most Ballets - especially those by Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Bizet, Satie, Rachmaninoff... well you get the picture
Favorite Books Latest fave: Sarah Vowell - Assassination Vacation. Everything by Kurt Vonnegut, what I've read of John Irving, Joyce Carol Oates, and too many others to list.

When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?

Hardly. It takes a lot of effort to reach the clock.
