Well, I am honored to say that Mary McDonough, aka Erin on The Waltons, is a high-school friend of mine. Not only does she remain active in the acting world, but she has also dedicated herself to helping women with body image issues, even becoming a political activist to enlighten women about the very serious risks involved with breast implants. Her immeasurable creativity has recently led her in a new direction. A few months ago, Mary published her book Lessons From The Mountain: What I Learned from Erin Walton. This is much more than Mary's autobiography; it is the story of a typical woman struggling with her own body image issues. Thus, the lessons Mary has learned will illuminate journeys of discovery and healing far beyond her own. You can visit Mary's web-site here. For more information on her book or to order, simply click here. You can even get it for you nook or other e-reader. Trust me, you'll find it to be relevant and captivating!

I sent my copy to Mary to be autographed. I sent this little card along with it. I hope that Mary and I each get to publish at least this many books!
