From Vanity to Maternity
From Vanity to Maternity: Lessons From the Catwalks of My Life
From Vanity to Maternity: Lessons From the Catwalks of My Life is the story of a flawed girl who is rejected as a teenage model but achieves international success in her 20s. Her journey, glamorous and gritty, teaches her as much about perseverance and resilience as it does about beauty. These lessons prove crucial when she’s labeled infertile at 32 and faces the possibility of never having her dream family. She triumphs again, transitioning from strut to waddle with as much grace as 8 in vitro fertilizations, swollen ankles, and a spit-up-stained wardrobe allow, and becomes the mother of 4 by 40. From the big picture—career, men, motherhood—to the little picture—zipping those skinny jeans post pregnancy —Vanity to Maternity offers advice for all women wrapped up in an adventure through the rarely-seen real modeling world.
This is a work in progress and I welcome any feedback (good or bad!) and agent/editor inquiries.
