2018 was an incredible year for me, but it flew by in lightening speed. It started off with the publication of my first book, AMAZING GRACIE. As soon as it went on sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kindle, sales instantly soared and the reviews poured in. It was a dream come true completing a 10-year writing and researching project. I appeared on FoxNews Los Angeles, and on the entertainment/news show out of New Haven called, “Good Morning Connecticut." In the fall, I found myself in an ADR studio at Technicolor in Toronto, Canada, recording the audio version of AMAZING GRACIE, narrated by the magnificent actress, screenwriter, producer, director and friend, Sara Botsford. With editing finally complete in December, the audio version was published by Audible and iTunes, allowing fans to now listen to my grandmother’s story brought to life in magnificent and vivid detail.
Ever since it was first published I have been asked by many, if I plan on writing a sequel — as no one wanted the story to end, and left them yearning for more of Gracie’s life. So with the start of 2019, and the great success I have had, I’m hoping to begin writing that much requested continuation. So, wish me luck, and stay-tuned.
Thank you all for your support, encouragement and the great reviews. Here’s hoping 2019 will prove enlightening for all of us!
My journey into writing AMAZING GRACIE was very much like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together to finally reveal the hidden truth. A stunning portrait of a young girl who survives the shocking destruction of her poor-yet-loving family, and rises to become a woman of strength, courage, tenacity.
