~At 22, Leslie Morgan Steiner seemed to have it all: good looks, a Harvard diploma, a glamorous job in New York City. Plus a handsome, funny boyfriend who adored her.

I come from Minnesota, Nassau, Bahamas, & Carnival Cruise Lines….
…where I drank long island teas, goombay smashes, and dealt black jack to movie stars like Telly Savalas, Louis Gosset Jr., rich oil tycoons, and dirty old men who blew raspberry scented smoke into my face at the old Playboy Club.

- HANDMAID’S TALE: Okay, I know I’m repeating myself; I tend to do this…but Atwood really speaks to me, to my soul; her words, sentences, strong female characters, metaphor, and prophesy kick my ass.

This has won every award and deserves the accolades! Belieeeeve me.
