Hello, Frocktalkers! Now that we’ve all had a moment to breathe after the big awards season push, I have some new things for you! First, I have written another book – this time, a cookbook. It’s a benefit for my friend, production designer John Johnson, who is battling pancreatic cancer. He is on a vegan diet, and I cooked up a ton of food for him, and thought, hey wait a second!

Thanks in advance for your support! It means a lot.

Recognizing need in the world and addressing it makes a huge difference – not only to those in need, but to one’s own personal growth. I am here to tell you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am asking you to get involved!!!
