I'm a professional actress, worker bee. Been in "the business" for over 30 years. Done my fair share of television, film, even Broadway - yeah, I'm a stage rat. Started there, will always have a special yearning for "the boards." I studied directly with the late, great Stella Adler, and in that tradition, I like to pass on the wisdom and skills that were so generously shown to me.
Loving this new flipsnack site for my book, "Actor Muscle: Craft. Grit. Wit. A Professional Guide to the Business of Acting."
A Professional Guide to the Business of Acting. This 252-page book is written especially for any actor to begin, maintain and sustain an exhilarating career, offering the most up-to-date practices on the professional front. Starting with a realistic game plan, each successive chapter is the actor’s next move. It lays out every stage of the game: from headshots and resumes, to getting an agent, talent contracts, comprehensive methods of submissions and auditioning for stage/television/film, unions, scams, and hard-won wisdom of the open road. “Actors by nature are renegades. We don’t want to conform – we want to act, and that’s all. We’ll plunge the dangerous depths of psychological menace in a role, but mew like a stray cat over a cold call to an agent … The purpose of this book is for young actors to reach for legitimate skills and services to find work in this industry; to survive its ever-changing tastes, and crickets-or-cannonballs energy.” Actor Muscle has garnered impression industry endorsements and five star reviews!
