About the Book

An idealistic young woman is seduced by the promise of a creative and spiritual renaissance which the 60's and 70's rebels tauted to be their goal. She moved from a stable midwestern community where morality was enforced by the impact of families being known to each other for generations. She arrived in a dizzying metropolis of strangers unknown even to themselves. She spent thirty years testing, rejecting and coming to terms with her own beliefs. She was well past her 50's when she first read Betty Friedan's, FEMININE MYSTIQUE but in her youth she felt the dissatisfaction with the lack of opportunity for creativity and growth midwestern women suffered. When she finally read the book, she was surprised to learn Ms. Friedan had not meant to start a political movement, but was making a case for growth movement.


About the Author

When she graduated from Southwestern Methodist in Kansas in 1964, she followed her family to Utah where they had moved when she graduated high school. Utah offered more opportunity for experiencing the new culture (she went to Vegas to see the Beatles on their maiden voyage in 1964). But she wouldn't be satisfied until she moved to California in 1969. She earned her Masters in Professional Writing from the prestigious Spielberg/Lucas Graduate Department at the University of Southern California.
