Fall in Manhattan

Hi everyone,

I’m spending some time in the city that My Life as a Doormat began:  Manhattan.  Without this magical yet challenging  place, I wouldn’t have been capable of writing my book.  Although a work of fiction, My  Life as a Doormat is based on many real experiences and feelings from my young adulthood.

It’s reassuring seeing many of the landmarks mentioned in my book are still here. They’ve withstood the test of time.  As have I.

See what’s being said about “My Life as a Doormat”

By Tracy on September 29, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition

Love, Love Loved this book. One reason was I grew up in Miami Florida and understand Rose Gardener’s life. if you want to get away from all the political B.S. and enjoy reading about something other than the news, this is a great read. I have always felt like I let people walk all over me because I want to please others and don’t want to be thought of as a bitch.

Reading this opened my eyes to a real change in my attitude about knowing that you can be kind, nice and not let people take you for granted.This is a clear lesson in what NOT to do. This is her story but I bet you see yourself in Rose. Buy it, read it and you will see there is a big lesson to be learned.

Excerpts from ‘My Life as a Doormat’

About Work…

By September’s end, I was no longer happy scraping dried scrambled eggs off my waitress apron. Too many shifts, temperamental cooks and the grim reality of schlepping food sucked. My moment as a film actress had long passed and the trauma of “A Whisper of Opportunity” has faded. After my brief hiatus, I was more than ready to get back into the acting game.
