I'd get kicked out of buildings all day long people would rip up my business card in my face. It's a humbling business to be in. But I knew I could sell and I knew I wanted to sell something I had created. I cut the feet out of those pantyhose and I knew I was on to something. This was it.
I've never chased fame. I came into this business to be a theatre actress. I was nine when I first appeared on stage. But I can't say I would turn my back on fortune. I'm someone who enjoys the benefits of money.
In terms of the technology I use the most it's probably a tie between my Blackberry and my MacBook Pro laptop. That's how I communicate with the rest of the world and how I handle all the business I have to handle.
I used to work for a management consulting company so I dressed differently - business casual probably a lot of things from Banana Republic. My wardrobe now is definitely more expensive but I always dress for the occasion.
After adding trillions to the debt on big-government policies most Americans didn't ask for and which we couldn't afford Democratic leaders say they need more money which they intend to take from small business even though small businesses create the majority of new jobs.
Writing fiction is for me a fraught business an occasion of daily dread for at least the first half of the novel and sometimes all the way through. The work process is totally different from writing nonfiction. You have to sit down every day and make it up.
Every night half an hour before curtain up the bells of St. Malachy's the Actors' Chapel on New York's 49th Street peal the tune of 'There's No Business Like Show Business.' If you walk the streets of the theatre district before a show and see the vast enthusiastic lines it sounds like a calling: there is certainly no place like Broadway.
I would absolutely definitely never sell my wedding pictures to a magazine. I'd like it to be a special day not a photo shoot. And once you've done that your marriage becomes everybody else's business.
