Last month myself and Ben Vendetta traveled to London for the book launch of "Sunset Trip" which took place at an iconic music store, Rough Trade.

I'm going to London for the first time since 1992. It was Halloween, the first *legal* rave in London I got to dance at for a bit, on top of visiting various house parties.

If you ever wanted hear me blab about the music industry, art, Joan Crawford, my awesome husband, and why after everything I've been through medically I just suck it up (despite a cat sitting on my catheter bag), well then, you are in luck! I was invited to co-host on motivational talk show LoLoKnows earlier this week. Fair… Continue reading Motivational Talk: Radio Guest on LoLo Knows
It's been a while since I got back from my husband's book tour, but a lot of photos later I am finally updating about it.
