“It is in the knowledge of the

genuine conditions of our lives that we must draw our strength

to live and our reasons for living.”

Simone De Beauvoir

After half of century of loving, losing, and sitting with my pain, I began a study why some people seem to find happily ever after and others don’t. I tried to pin point some of the issues to parents. Then I added nature versus nurture not to mention two masters in education.  And while that did answer some of my questions, there was much more to the inability to be satisfied in romantic relationships than these theories. So, I looked to spirituality, karma, demographics, history, and more.  What I found was a long journey home to the answers I searched for to help me finally arrive to a healthy place in my heart.

The book, What I did for Love; why my affair with Frankie Valli matters, is about my journey and possibly yours.  It’s a revealing tale about the cost of our very personal learned views about ‘Lust, Passion, and the secret longings of our hearts derived from a variety of sources.

The book, due out this late fall, just in time for the holidays and the DVD release of the Jersey Boys movie is a cautionary tale about dysfunctional families, women, and how we incorrectly fall in love with the wrong guys.  My story is so similar to many other females I have shared conversations with; it might just ring a bell ANSWERING the questions that keep you up at night, lonely, and unfulfilled.
