Time for a change

I grayed prematurely, and when I was thirty-eight I decided to stop coloring my hair. My agent thought it was a mistake, saying casting directors would think I was older. I didn’t care how old they thought I was, as long as I worked. That agent dropped me, but I kept on working. I went from the bride to the mother of the bride overnight, and I was right: those checks cashed just the same.

New wave nursing

My very first paying job in L.A. was for a music video for a song called “A Little TLC” on the Saturday the morning cartoon, Kidd Video in 1984. I’m on the right, cast as a new wave nurse by the director, Bud Schaetzle, who later cast me in several other videos. He made me a waltzing mannequin, a zombie, and directed my first on-screen kiss. It was always a pleasure to work for Bud, but I was particularly grateful for this first Hollywood gig.

A late start, a long shot

I started modeling at 23 in Charlotte, NC, and was told because I was already so old, my career would be short. It only lasted a few decades.

The start of something …

This was an outtake from my first print job in Los Angeles. The client was Parachute. Steven Arnold was the photographer, and Paul Starr, the makeup artist. Sadly, both are now gone. I wrote about this in a book that may or may not be published one day:
“When I look at it, I see a young, naïve girl, hidden behind thick false eyelashes and dark brown lipstick, waiting for her life to happen, and not even realizing what an amazing moment has been captured—the start of her life in L.A.”

I love Fangbangers Anonymous!

While searching Fangbangers Anonymous’ great archive of story recs, I stumbled on another story of mine that was pimped last year and I didn’t even know it!

This one is on Story Recs: At Sea, and in it I’ve shipwrecked Eric and Sookie a la “Six Days, Seven Nights” in a little one-shot called A Guy with Skills.

I wrote A Guy with Skills in response to a weekly one-shot challenge, and later was handed the baton to post the challenges myself, which I did happily for 5 years on The Sookieverse. I wrote quite a few stories based on the challenges, but I’m most proud of inspiring many other fanfiction writers to write, especially new writers. The challenges are still there for all to use and enjoy, so have at it!



Time for a Kindle dealio!

For those who aren’t familiar with my book, here’s what it’s all about …

Derek Randall had a perfect life as an L.A. supermodel falling in love with Clara Devereux, his dream girl. But when he’s murdered and becomes a vampire, his world is turned upside down by his evil maker, Madeline. He struggles with his new existence, finds help from his nest of brothers, and goes to Clara. They renew their love and hatch a plan that will get him back in the spotlight, but it’s a dangerous game, and as Madeline circles closer, Derek has to choose: his life or Clara’s.
