  • Star Struck: Interviews with Dirty Harry and other Hollywood Icons on Dec. 26, 2011

    Bestselling author John Locke sums up Betty quite well in his Foreward. She is a relentless, gracious, amazing woman; a crisp writer who flawlessly weaves her own humble, humorous story into her narrative. Star Struck is a quick, satisfying read that will appeal to all while giving us a glimpse into Betty's incredible life as a journalist and perhaps more importantly, as a single mother to six children. Two thumbs up on aa great read and a life well-lived. I'm heading to 1106 Grand Boulevard, I hear its an incredible ride.
