In 2005, while working for Procter & Gamble Production and their two soap operas, As the World Turns and Guiding Light, I pitched the idea of writing a tie-in novel that would be sold on the show – and in real life.
"Oakdale Confidential" was published in conjunction with ATWT’s 50th Anniversary in April of 2006. And debuted at #3 on “The New York Times” best-seller list.
That, surely, was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me… so far.
Because, while luck is an awesome, wonderful, terrific thing, I can’t
just sit around waiting for it to strike again. (Especially in case
I’ve already used up my designated lifetime quota.)
