San Diego, CA -- Pacific Beach -- July 17, 2007

Reading Don't Ever Tell: Kathy's Story: A True Tale of a Childhood Destroyed by Neglect and Fear, by Kathy O'Beirne, which had been left behind on a seat at Heathrow Airport in London. It's about abused children and it reminds her of A Child Called It, by Dave Pelzer. This, she said, is so much easier to get through.

What does she like reading if she's going to seek it out herself--James Patterson. She loves murder mystery stuff. Next, though, she's going to read a book called The Good Mood Diet, by Susan M. Kleiner and Bob Condor, not because she wants to lose weight but because she wants to learn about certain foods that will boost your mood. She also likes, what she described as cute little reads, like Bridget Jones Diary, by Helen Fielding.

If she were to write her own novel it would be about her mom's death--the result of a brain tumor--when she was twelve years old. It caused her to grow up quickly so she could take care of her younger siblings.

She lives here in San Diego.
