SM: Carol, what interested you in writing?
CH: I began writing poetry when I was much younger; I had the romantic idea of becoming a poet. That dream soon changed. When I was in my early 20s, I fantacized about going to Hollywood. I decided that I was going to become a movie star, not an actress. I soon learned that it was not easy to separate the two.
SM: Tell me a little bit about the book.
CH: The book is about two blondes trying to make it big in the wild, wacky world of show business. It takes place in the 1960s and the '70s. True Blondes takes the reader on a journey from New York City to Las Vegas, and Hollywood. The book tells the tale of the trials and tribulations that these two women encounter on their journey to stardom. The question remains, which one will survive: Mandy or Diane? Read the book to find out!
