During my quest, I discovered smart, candid, tough, funny, beautiful and diverse independent women who happened to select an unconventional career choice. It has been enlightening as a researcher and author to vicariously walk in their shoes. In my portrayals, I will be providing an overview of the entire lives of these women, beginning with their childhood years, throughout their careers to present day.
Our interviews produced interesting responses as each woman shared intimate feelings about her past and how her life today has been impacted - both positively and negatively. Performers, filmmakers, script-writers, photographers, make-up artists and costumers will be featured as all of these women are legendary in unique ways. The book will contain over 300 photos and film highlights, and will be presented in an oral history format.
In no particular order included are: Marilyn Chambers, Seka, Ginger Lynn, Juliet Anderson, Kay Parker, Kelly Nichols, Serena, Rhonda Jo Petty, Jody Maxwell, Candida Royalle, Roberta Findlay, Laurie Holmes, Gloria Leonard, Raven Touchstone, Annie Sprinkle, Julia St. Vincent, Georgina Spelvin, Veronica Hart, Sharon Mitchell, Amber Lynn, Nina Hartley, Christy Canyon, Barbara (Caron) Mills, Ann Perry and Kitten Natividad.
Also included will be fifteen 'Honorary Mentions'.
I hope you will enjoy glimpsing into the lives of these amazing pioneer women as much as I have.
Excerpts and snippets from the book will be posted in the months to come.
