Washington Post Article

August 16, 2009

Yes, that’s me in the Washington Post Sunday magazine having my moment of fame all thanks to Amanda Long, a Post writer who called me out of the blue one day. She’d discovered the Divorce 101 class I teach at NVCC and the rest is history….

Amanda was delightful. She arrived at my home one Sunday afternoon … by bike! She’s totally unpretentious, and easy to talk to, so the nearly 2 hour interview flew by. Amanda wrapped up her stay by showing me how to massage my puppy’s neck. I was actually sorry to see her leave.

Next came the photo shoot a few weeks later. Matthew Girard arrived with lots of equipment and a darling crew of two. It was a real treat, and I felt like a VIP. I watched Matthew, working with his model-like, perky assistant (April?) setup, check and recheck lighting, and then when everything was perfect I was invited to take center stage.

Matthew really cares about putting you at ease, making you look good (he did!) and getting it right. A dog person himself, he incorporated my puppy Zoey into the shot! If you look closely at the black & white pillow next to me you’ll see its her.

In closing, the Post knows how to find classy, talented people. Thanks Amanda and Matthew for making me feel so special!
