Last Wednesday was the official publication party of  my book.  It could not have been more perfect, mainly because it was given to me by Jane Friedman, who is the official godmother of the book. It was conceived four summers ago around her koi pond in East Hampton. It was purchased during her tenure as Publisher of  Harper Collins, and because Jane is so amazing and such a good friend, even now that she is off and running her own company OpenRoad Media, she wanted to be the one to help introduce the book into the world.

I actually use Jane in the book as one of the three women I look to for guidance in how to move through the world with determination, dignity and exuberance. I would be hard pressed to find a better one.
