The What-I'm-Up-To-Now Bits (Writing a Book)  

 

I am currently editing, revising, rethinking (and generally agonizing  over) my first book:   

Some Girlz (with a Z) * 

which chronicles my early (and somewhat unhinged) years as a teenager who grew up impersonating Mick Jagger and eventually stalking the Rolling Stones with my two best friends (as all normal teenager fangirls are wont to do). 

 

If you were to meet me today, you would  likely assume that I am a fairly normal human being and likely would never suspect my secret persona of "Mick Jagger Impersonator Extraordinaire"! 

 

So if you like tall (but true) tales, you will want to read my madcap memoir, Some Girlz (with a Z), which documents my young quest in life to answer the all-too-familiar question . . .

What's a nice girl like me

doing with a face

like Mick's???

 

A selfie I took of my reflection via bathroom mirror. 

(Circa 1976)

 

Alas, while other more savvy sixteen year old girls were fine-tuning their make-up application skills, I was busy trying to look like Mick Jagger.

(And possibly inventing the "Mirror Selfie".)

Note to all young women out there: 

Mick Jagger look-alikery is definitely NOT a good recipe for acquiring boyfriends.

Or high school popularity. 

Consider yourself warned.

MY BFF JOHANNAH AS KEITH RICHARDS

MY BFF SHEILA AS MICK TAYLOR

ME AS

MICK JAGGER

Are you getting a clear picture of why we didn't date much in high school and college?

Old High School Photos

Yes,

I really did type that many words!!!

My Book! 

The "Alter Ego" Bits  

(in case you have only met one side of me)

 

Prior to scribing, I spent the majority of my career as my "Alter Ego"; a modern dance choreographer. 

(aka: Taylor)

I am the Founder + Artistic Director of State of Grace,  a Modern Dance + Arts company & ministry. My work has been presented at theaters, universities, museum/monumental sites,

conferences, military bases, churches and synagogues in the U.S. and abroad. 

 

My lengthier productions have been theatrical fusions of choreography depicting my original scripts and narrations, including one two-hour work (which required a cast of 60, took two years to rehearse and kinda traumatized us all). 

Nevertheless, it was the best State of Grace  production ever, thereby proving the axiom, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger".)  

The Freelance Bits

 

My freelance work has consisted of creating branding + marketing content and website designs for start-ups and non-profits. I also blog for Serve Our Willing Warriors, an awesome non-profit organization that serves our wounded , ill, and injured warriors in the greater Washington, DC area. 

In my spare time, I'm polishing my book . . .

Which leads me to the last bit . . .

 

I"m currently trying to find an (adoring) agent who will find a publisher for my book.

(If that sound like you, click HERE!)

 

And I'm still running around with Sheila trying to meet the Rolling Stones.

Mainly because  I think that THEY should read the book.

(I feel they owe me that!)

Curious to see how my mad schemes turn out?
