My Author Video

My author video is now available.  I want to thank my good friends Gabe Klinger and Danielle Campbell for doing such a great job.  If you have not seen Gabe’s film Porto, please do.  It is thought-provoking and gorgeously filmed.  I am so lucky he was able to do this project.

A Night to Remember

The book launch on October 10th at the Drake Hotel was a wonderful event, thanks to all the great people who attended and the Drake staff. Here are some of the pictures that people have shared with me from that night.





I have been enjoying picking out the hors ‘d’oeuvres, canapés and desserts for the Book Launch for Examined Livesat the Drake Hotel on October 10th (7 – 8:30) and I thought I would share it with you. Hopefully both the food and the book wet your appetites!
