Celebrating my 2017 Award-Winning Books

For us it was our 3-years-in-the-making “Women in American History: A Social, Political, and Cultural Encyclopedia” – then I earned a second award for my 2-years-in-the-making Monkees book “Why The Monkees Matter: Teenagers, Television and American Pop Culture”.   

2016 – A Publication Packed Year!

My book on The Monkees — Why The Monkees Matter — brought great joy into my life this year – allowing me to host a few book signings, attend a few concerts, meet a few of the more fabulous members of the Zilch Podcast Nation and even resulted in my being invited into the (marvelous and mind-blowing to my inner nine-year-old) St. Louis concert VIP photo op line where I had this lovely photo taken with Micky and Peter (and saw to it that they both had copies of the book).

The WOMEN WRITE NOW: BREAKING BARRIERS IN FILM, TV AND THE WEB — In order left to right: Kirsten Smith (10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, LEGALLY BLONDE), Gina Prince-Bythewood (Different World, Love and Basketball, Secret Life of Bees), Jessica Mecklenburg (STRANGER THINGS, BEING MARY JANE), Deborah Schoeneman (HAND OF GOD, GIRLS, THE NEWSROOM), Lauren Schuker Blum (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK), Rebecca Angelo (Control Alt Delete), Dr. Rosanne Welch

Women Write Now: Breaking Barriers In Film, Tv And The Web

As the landscape of storytelling on film, television and the web evolves and changes, more women are leading the charge in breaking down gender walls in the industry. Each has her own story and a perspective about the challenges that women face as writers and creators in the field.

The Writers Guild Foundation and Stage 32 are partnering on this special event, which invites writers to discuss their careers and their experiences working as a woman in the industry, from where they started and how they got their material noticed to what the future for women in media looks like and what inspires them to write every day.

I deeply appreciate folks like Sarah Clark and Ken Mills and Tom O’Keefe for inviting me into their pre-show photo op at Saturday’s 50th Anniversary Monkees Concert in St. Louis.

While I’ve always enjoyed The Monkees concerts (from my first in 1986 to those in the 90s, and 2013/14 and at the Pantages earlier this year) this one impressed me. Their level of showmanship, vocal and instrumental prowess and the overall sense of fun and brotherhood that emanated off the stage made it one to remember.

Why The Monkees Matter Book Signing – Book Soup, Hollywood, CA – September 19, 2016

Last night’s book signing at Book Soup was wonderful – good people, good conversation (before and after the signing). Just another example of the kind of quality positive people who have been drawn to The Monkees across generations – I even met a former head of publicity for ScreenGems who had some fun stories to tell.

Presenting “Why The Monkees Matter” to Micky Dolenz and Dave Evans, Writer of many Monkees episodes [Photos]

Last night I attended American Cinematheque’s “50th Anniversary of the Monkees” event at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and had the opportunity to present copies of “Why The Monkees Matter” to writer, Dave Evans and Micky Dolenz. This is the culmination of a long path in writing the book and I was very happy that I could put a copy directly into the hands of 2 people who played such a fundamental role in the creation of “The Monkees” television show — and therefore, my book.
