I am in the midst of your book... I was born in 1960 so a lot of the music and clothing I remember well! You are beautiful in both body and spirit! I cringed while reading the abuse you suffered due to your mother and her own demons, how anyone can do those things to a child I will never, ever understand, but I know that somehow we find forgiveness... it is better that way in life than to hold anger and bitterness inside! You have and are living an amazing life by the grace of God and your own strength and preserverance! I wish you happiness always!

Hi Catherine: I just finished your book last week, I found it very sad, yet inspiring as it went along. I could totally relate to what you were feeling as you grew up, as I had a single young mom with abusive tendencies. I laughed and cried, but most of all, I'm starstruck, so I was excited to read about your meetings, with some of the most famous people and without a doubt best rock and roll legends of our times. Hopefully, you will write again, and I will buy your next book. It's amazing how some people in life never have to endure anything and their lives seem perfect, but I am sure, everybody has something in life that is sad, as you have. I wish you good luck and am very happy for you and your son.

I just read your book in one day and marveled all the way through at your heartbreaking and exciting adventures. I'm exactly your age and was born and raised in Southern California, with an invalid father and alcoholic mother who threatened me on a weekly basis with being dropped off at MacLaren Hall, which was just at the other end of town. Had I known it was such comforting place I may have walked there myself! Although I would love to have been a teen in Hollywood and cavorted with stars as you did, I did manage to grow up and out, marrying the first man who asked. We were both 18 and he proved to be an abuser in every way, but as with you, he did give me my only chid- a wonderful son, so it was all worth it. I left him and moved on to bigger and better things but there are lessons in everything, right? I loved your writing style and your wondrous story of survival and eventual peace and look forward to your next book.

woke up at 4 to read the 2nd chapter of your book and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting! I was so heavy eyed but could not put it down!
I've been to California a few yrs ago...did the whole 'Hollywood Blvd'/Hollywood Sign, get on THE PRICE IS RIGHT, JAY LENO, WILL AND GRACE SHOW (at the time) and drove around many of the roads mentioned in the book...so kept me interested that way too. Brentwood...home of Joan Crawford~~but cripes, your mom made Joan look like a saint! I have to ask...she seemed bipolar or definitely had some UNDIAGNOSED disorder, Im thinking. Or 'schizophrenic'? IDK...Anyway...you really pulled me into your story and I just felt so bad for you and your brother. I just got done reading an autobiography of Marianne Faithful too...so it was so random that she was mentioned on the one page. (of course not unlikely...in that she too had a relationship w/Mick)....
It would have been a crime had you NOT told your story. Im glad you made it out alive! Peace be with you...
If you're ever in the Paradise PA are/Lancaster PA give me a hollar. email@example.com :-)

I just finished reading your book in one sitting. I wish I'd had your guts growing up instead of leading such a timid life. You're pretty amazing.

Catherine, greetings from Australia, I hope you are having a lovely week. I stumbled upon your book by chance, and i'm honestly glad I did! I was surfing the web looking at arts and design blogs when I came upon a web blog and saw a review of your book. I was instantly interested, as I am a songwriter/composer and thought I must read this... and now! I eventually bought a copy and once it arrived I read the whole book in one sitting. I can assure you that I have never done that before at all, ever! It was an exceptional read and one that took me on your journey from the first to the last page. Emotive, enticing, heartbreaking yet very optimistic and forgiving. I do hope you continue writing and that this book reaches many people. All the best, take care. Troy :)
