Lt. Helen Eberhart Daley

February 10, 2017

I think it’s time to meet one of the two “stars” in WITH LOVE, WHEREVER YOU ARE–my mom. Nurse Helen Eberhart approached everything in life with pure determination. She had to, growing up with ten brothers and sisters in Cissna Park, Illinois. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, and with five brothers in service overseas, she decided to enlist as an Army nurse. After all, she did want to see the world. There, her grit and determination were put to the test when she was assigned to care for broken bodies of some of the most severely wounded soldiers. Most the amputees, “her boys,” as she would always refer to them, were the age of her youngest brothers. She spent all day on the wards, assisting in surgeries and bandaging wounds. And she spent many nights with a pair of tweezers, picking hundreds of pieces of shrapnel out of the young solders and reading them their mail. She read far too many “Dear John” letters from their gals back home. As you might imagine, she received dozens of marriage proposals and thank-you letters from her patients. This I didn’t know . . . until I opened the trunk.

Erika Christensen stars as Bailey Daley in MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS

I couldn’t have asked for a better Bailey than the incredibly talented Erika Christensen. She stars in the popular TV series Parenthood. And the long list of her movie credits includes: Traffic, The Upside of Anger, Swimfan, Flightplan, The Banger Sisters, Wuthering Heights, The Sisters, and on and on. As a person, she’s a delight–sweet, funny, charming, and such a hard-worker. I never heard her complain, even when she had to do take after take in the rain. Plus, she loves dogs! I’m so grateful Erika said yes to MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS.

 

 

MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS–The Movie!

March 14, 2014

Right this very minute, my character, Bailey Daley, is coming to life–how cool is that! MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS, a funny, romantic novel I wrote a couple of years ago, is being turned into a Hallmark movie that will air the end of this year. The movie will keep my title, my characters, and even the three dogs–Adam and Eve and Shirley. Erika Christensen plays the lead, and she’s a wonderful actress (stars on Parenthood, in the movie Traffic, and many more). I couldn’t be happier with the script, which stays close to the book (and from what I hear, that’s not always the case). AND, I get to go to Vancouver to see part of the filming! I’ll be heading there on March 24, which just happens to be my birthday. I’ll keep you posted!
