As it turns out… they’re being written very slowly but I am determined to get them done THIS year…
I am working on a memoir that will be published in two volumes. One wasn’t going to get the job done.
The first book, Flash Floods, is the story of my mystically tinged, happy, though at times quite spooky childhood. It is also the story of my father, Henry Flood, who courageously followed an unmarked path while writing what he thought would be a novel set during the Revolutionary War. This novel was based on an actual man who was a double agent during the war and buried his murder victims in his root cellar. Flash Floods also tells the story of this colonial villain and how he got away with his crimes. My story, our story, is about murders, ghosts, and growing up in the 1970s and 80s.
The second book, Flood Lights, is about Rosemary Dempsey, my astounding grandmother who died first and then subsequently really lived. Her love, her losses, and her time in 1930s Hollywood. It is also my story of my modeling career in the late 1980s and early 1990s in New York, Munich and Paris and how I lost myself in the ashes of the world of predatory men, food fights, its fierce competition — and about my path to now, to awaking, to finding my true calling in a zig-zag manner through acting school, TV commercials, loosing my father, meeting the love of my life, rebuilding, landing at MTV, becoming a mother, making an independent film, and a professional intuitive.
Book One: Flash Floods, a true story of spirit, ghosts, murder + old bones
Book Two: Flood Lights, a true story of modeling, death, birth + MTV
Please stay tuned!
