SOAP OPERA WISHES AND ROCK ‘N ROLL DREAMS

By Melissa Neiderman and Teresa Rogers

Dear late teenage years/early twenty-something Melissa,

That character on your favorite daytime soap opera, you know the one with the great accent, good-looking  with the personality that seems filled with humor, yes, that guy, Scorpio. Well, not only will he become a good friend, but his wife will be one of your very best friends. Yes, seriously, it’s true.

Dance First, Think Later

“Dance First. Think Later”

   A friend of mine gave me a book by Kathryn & Ross Petras with the above title for my 53rd birthday.  The question that opens to the reader is “How should one live life?” Could you answer that question in one sentence or two?

live life to the fullest quotes (2)

The introduction goes on to say that most of us are obsessed with the “practical” advice about money or success or getting ahead.  With that, we lose sight of the big picture.  What is the big picture to you?

Renae mostly uses semi-precious stones to design her pieces, but can customize just about anything to the customer’s liking.  In fact, she has had the opportunity to customize pieces for Sharon Stone, Cindy Crawford, Linda Gray, Bebe Neuwirth, and Lanie Kazan.

LEARNING TO FLY AT SIXTY

By Michele Mahoney

This title may imply that I am becoming a pilot in my sixties.  Not true.  What I am becoming in my sixties is a Yoga arm balance junkie.   In fact, my goal is to learn a minimum of one new arm balance a year until I drop dead or become incapacitated in some other manner.  I would like to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for the oldest woman alive with the ability to balance on her arms.

Good Ghostwriters Are Possessed

Good Ghostwriters Are Possessed
By Andrew Neiderman

There is a growing phenomenon in the publishing industry: continuing the works of dead authors, but for me it’s not very new. I’ve been writing V.C. Andrews for over 30 years now and continue with books scheduled for publication into and beyond 2019. Recently, the producer I work with in Hollywood, Dan Angel of Everywhere Studios and I, after years and years of pounding the beat, saw five earlier V.C. Andrews novels produced and aired on Lifetime with a sixth now in the works. Please remember. This is a book franchise in its 37th year, consistently published with two or three titles every year since the publication of Flowers in the Attic.
