Her life included marriage at 13, three children by 17, a career in the field of cosmetology, where she became a respected hair color technician and teacher, to finally realizing her dream of writing about the stars that she lived with in her fantasy world so many years ago.The life of Eve Quillin can best be described by a loosely quoted statement that was made by Maya Angelou. She said, I did as good as I knew how to, and when I knew better I did better. This book is of the struggles, dreams, and dreams realized.

Youll learn things that youll never read in the National Enquirer about your favorite star, and youll be inspired in this day of terror and dread that we live in, to know that even at 75 you can realize the greatest dream of all, to be a published author.
