Queen of TV and Me
I met Oprah Winfrey in December 2015 and was compelled to write my own story! I started immediately and was taken on a personal journey which covered all the quirky circumstances involved in my Oprah encounter.
The book also encompasses 34 years of my life which took me by surprise as I was taken on an emotional roller coaster! There were tears, joy, laughter, anger, fear, love and passion at 40 and a realisation that my life was definitely unusual to say the least. I owe this all to meeting Oprah.
Many people will relate to the issues and problems that I experienced such as divorce, dating after divorce, working and surviving after divorce, changing careers, coping with kids and step kids, being scammed for $50,000 which included being treated deplorably by the bank and many more issues.
I also found myself in unusual situations which involved being asked to go on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous in Las Vegas and having a film crew film us renewing our vows in a hot air balloon. I also wrote a children’s musical play which was performed all over Adelaide in the 1980’s and was asked to perform in American elementary schools in the St. Clair region of Michigan in the 1990’s.
I think the message that can be taken from the book is to believe in yourself no matter what your age and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Also never give in and never give up whether it’s regarding dreams and aspirations or finding the love of your life at 40 or any age for that matter.
Have a look at the chapter names and pick anyone of them that looks the most interesting to you and have a read!
My husband also makes comments throughout my novel which gives a male’s perspective on a woman’s outlook on life. He does this in a delightful and humorous way.
