Beth Rengel Shares 'Anchored in Illusion'
by BWW News Desk - Apr 5, 2017

From Miss Texas to fired TV News Anchor, Beth Rengel candidly talks about the painful and publicly humiliating details of life in front of and behind the camera in her newly released book, 'Anchored in Illusion.' Are the double standard, gender-biased practices of thirty years ago a thing of the past or is workplace bullying alive and well in today's so-called progressive society? Beth Rengel overturns the stones and reveals her darkest secrets in this vulnerable account of her emergence from Ashes life journey. Inspired to write 'Anchored in Illusion' by nationally acclaimed author and motivational speaker Jim Stovall, who writes this in the book's forward, 'I pride myself on creating fascinating characters and putting them in the middle of compelling stories. But on my best day, I could not have created a fictitious character as powerful, fascinating, and diverse as the real-life Beth Rengel you are preparing to meet.' About writing her book, Beth Rengel says, 'It's like having open heart surgery, if they don't cut you open, they can't heal the damage.' Beth resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her two rescue dogs and enjoys spending time with her daughter Ana and her granddaughter Bella. She is a real estate agent with McGraw Realtors and is a sought after motivational speaker as well.
