More About the Author
Brenda Della Casa is an internationally published author, speaker, columnist and casting producer who has spent the last nine years interviewing single, married and divorced men and women for a variety of television shows and articles.
While working as a casting agent, producer and director for some of television's most popular dating, relationship and family shows, Della Casa spent her days and nights submerged in the dating pool and swam from DC to NY to LA and back. She spent her evenings in clubs and lounges watching singles mix and mingle and her days interviewing men and women about what they wanted, what they didn't want and what the opposite sex was doing all wrong. Her free time was spent discussing the dating dramas of her friends and maybe one or two of her own trip ups.
Tired of seeing incredible women destroy their chances with great guys by making bad decisions and comparing every relationship to that of Cinderella, Brenda set out to prove that Cinderella told a whopper and it was time for the women of the world (or at least those in those bars, clubs, brunch spots and in her living room) to re-write their romantic realities and create their own "Happily Ever After." There would be no more beating yourself up for sporting a naked ring finger and no lies about his losing your number being perpetuated over mimosa's. It was time to face reality, one fib at a time.
After interviewing hundreds of single women-and nearly 1,000 single, married and coupled men world-wide!- Brenda not only discovered how women can realize their lives have significance regardless of their romantic status but how in doing so they can attract quality men who will call and will commit. She put all of this and more into her breakthrough book, Cinderella Was a Liar: The Real Reason You Cannot Find (or Keep) a Prince, which has been published in seven countries and six languages.
