I, too, am a total theater and book nerd - two of my favorite things! Writing my book Limelight was my chance to throw myself into the behind-the-scenes world of Broadway, and I loved every minute. I go to see plays whenever I get the chance, and while I was writing Limelight, I met with actors and producers to get the inside scoop. (Also, back in ancient times when I was in my twenties, I did a little acting, and those experiences were helpful, too.) I also spoke with a few personal assistants and found their stories to be fascinating. Thanks for asking!!(less)

“Happiness is not a zero-sum game. It's the only case in which the resources are limitless, and in which the rich can get richer at no expense to anyone else. That day in the park, I found it remarkably easy to own my happiness and celebrate Kate's as well.
It's a strange thing, though, how rare, maybe impossible, it is to have everyone you care about thriving at the same time. For a short spell, life seems certain and stable, until something shifts and redistributes, randomly, unpredictably, and when you look around at the new landscape, you see that it's someone else's turn now. You redirect your attention to focus on the friend in need. You hope - you know - they will do the same for you, when your turn comes.”
Amy Poeppel, Small Admissions
