In fact, we did three readings together after the book came out. He still lives in the Bay Area and we were on the campaign trail together again, after all these years.

Howie and Carly came to visit me and my family recently and it's always an adventure, but the best part is watching my kids react to them with the same delight and warmth that my sister and I did way back when. They are a special couple.(less)
