My book:

The B-girl Guide: In the Context of Now combines down-to-earth guidelines on how to live more consciously with a grassroots sensibility and a rock ‘n’ roll spirit. The B-girl Guide provides information about beauty, health, care for the environment and the treatment of animals. Informative yet upbeat and entertaining, it will feature illustrations of the B-girl who has been, in a sense, my muse.

As a publicist in the music industry for over 10 years, I worked with rock luminaries such as Sarah McLachlan, Patti Smith, Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, AC/DC and more. I was jetting about in taxis and limos and receiving free dinners, concert tickets and even hair cuts! … but something happened along the way. I took a detour when I left one passion, the music business, to pursue another. I created an aromatherapy line – before it was fashionable – and soon after became immersed in grassroots activism and advocacy. I found myself volunteering my PR and strategic thinking skills in efforts aimed at defending the environment, animals, wildlife and public space.

Suddenly, I was moderating press conferences at New York’s City Hall, testifying at City Council hearings, organizing electronics recycling and other events, and working with governmental agencies, City Hall reporters, and local media. Via these efforts, a whole new world opened up to me with new perspectives – one that challenged my previous life. I encountered dedication from people who valued change for the better and worked tirelessly at it. I soon found myself looking at everything I’d ever learned in new ways.

Challenging at times, in the midst of it all, there’s been my book, The B-girl Guide: In the Context of Now in which, based on my experiences, I offer my own unique prescriptions for interacting with animals, the planet, and each other amidst the pressures and crises of daily life. The book is filled with practical suggestions for women and men in navigating the twists and turns of trying to stay sane and meaningful in an increasingly commercialized, at times insane, world.
