by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2015

By and large, Amanda Keane makes pretty good decisions. Okay, she might not have the best taste in men, but she's got great friends, a good job, and an independent spirit. That is, until her 30th birthday ushers in a whirlwind romance with a sexy Irish musician who leaves her, not at the altar as she imagined, but accidentally pregnant. And when he disappears, she's downsized out of a job, her apartment is robbed, and lapsed health insurance coverage leaves her with a C-section to pay for, Amanda is launched headfirst into the life of a broke single mom. But her friend and uber successful ob-gyn, Joy, clues her in to an unlikely temp position with one of Chicago's celebrity elite that just may be the answer to all her woes. Or could it be just the beginning? It's with serious trepidation that Amanda embarks on her surprisingly lucrative new career: underground wet nurse to the offspring of Chi-town's Rich and Famous. Amanda must quickly understand how to live at the whims and mercy of the one percent as she deals with the irony of nursing - and loving - someone else's child, while still making ends meet for her own daughter. And then there's Cute Daycare Dad (aka Dan), who's obviously interested in her. But can she afford to tell him what she really does for a living? Is her new job (something she thought went out with the 19th century) a shameful thing? Just another way of selling her body? Or does it have something to teach her after all? A novel of motherhood, its many demands, and all the little triumphs along the way, Milked is a warm and witty debut about making tough choices and traveling the roundabout road to happiness. 'Milked: A Modern Mommy Tale with a Retro Twist' is available in print and ebook formats.

BWW Recaps:  AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT: DEAD MAN'S FOLLY Wickedly DeliversBWW Recaps: AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT: DEAD MAN'S FOLLY Wickedly Delivers
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Aug 5, 2014

While not accompanied by his mainstay companions of many episodes (Capt. Hastings, Inspector Japp, Miss Lemon), this plot intertwines Poirot's likewise eccentric and charmingly maddening friend, crime writer Ariadne Oliver (Zoe Wanamaker). They inhabit a complex plot beset by double meanings and double identities, aided by strong production values including superb period costumes and a fabulous location: Christie's own Greenway Estate. Viewers familiar with Christie plot elements and ruses will probably catch on quickly to suspicious behaviors that scream: 'look at me, I'm a clue', but they are likely to catch novices unawares. Identifying the villain is probably easier than identifying the Motive here, and folly, whether of character or architecture, is an important theme. SPOILER ALERT: Eyes should be fixed on Sir George Stubbs (Sean Pertwee), whose hail-fellow-well-met demeanor is a thin veneer over a core of wickedness. (more...)

Songwriter, performer, producer, and now activist, Bobby Horowitz, has put yet another spin on the series/variety show, with her refreshing take on the subject of 'ageism' in America. Called It's Just a Number (starting with six dates running from April to October at The Metropolitan Room), Horowitz's show theme champions the notion that age truly is just a number. Featuring a different group of cabaret's best performers for each show, the series honors a person who after the age of 50 either began a new career, resumed a career, is attempting to attain knowledge in a new field, or established a new organization with the purpose of helping people. This past Saturday afternoon, Alice Fisher, who presently serves as Director of Community Outreach in the Office of NYS Senator, Liz Krueger, was the first honoree. (more...)
