Thank You! My sister and I would like to thank all who have given their support, stories and well wishes to this book project which took over two years to birth. That would include our family and our fellow performers who were a part of the Dean Martin Golddiggers with us, the musicians, producers, directors, choreographers, mentors, stars and our book producer, Billy Ingram.

Beyond Our Wildest Dreams propels the reader back to the glory days of the Rat Pack, dazzling Las Vegas in the 1970’s and the end of the TV Variety Show era.

A lightening bolt from the heavens struck us lucky! Who knew? We certainly didn’t! After a nation-wide audition of thousands of hopeful young women, my sister and I were chosen to be members of the Dean Martin Golddigger, entertaining audiences with Dean for nearly two decades. What an adventure it was to work and play with Dean, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Louis Prima, Jerry Vale, Bob Hope, Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Milton Berle, Jonathan Winters, Steve & Eydie, Tom Jones and many other legends!

 But our book is not all about glitz and glamour; we also share our struggles growing up with a strict Italian father whose radical ideas about health were way ahead of his time and our mother of nine children with a quirky show business background.

 The dark side of the business also shows its ugly head when we toured with Roy Radin, Cotton Club murder victim and when we escaped one of the deadliest mob hits of all time.

 Beyond Our Wildest Dreams appeals to a large audience which includes classic TV enthusiasts, Frank and Dean fans or anyone wanting to read an uplifting book about the good ole’ days. We also give you a back stage look into the world of beauty contests.

 This was quite a journey, a time in show biz that will be no more and it was a blast! 

 To my blog readers, I wish you the joy of well-being. Live each moment to the fullest by being aware of the miracles of life, the miracle of you. You’re the star in the story of your life so let your light shine!
