Floating Around Hollywood: And Other Totally-True Tales of Triumph Paperback – November 6, 2014
About the Author
Kristine M Smith was born in Tacoma Washington. From an early age she has been "a writer" - her sole claim to immortality, since she has never married and cloned herself the old-fashioned way. Instead of raising kids, she raised cats, dogs, snakes, frogs, rats, and guinea pigs; and rehabilitated wild animals (raccoons, deer, hawks, and ducks) - in the process raising her mother Dorothea's patience-quotient to a level approaching Job's. Smith reflects: "Mom wasn't an animal person. There must be a special place in heaven for her, just for putting up with me! I raised a skunk in the fireplace one summer! Can you imagine?!" Smith moved to Hollywood in 1989 to take on a different kind of "animal" - the monkey-on-your-back thrill of working in the entertainment industry where dreams can segue into goals and then into realities, even though the route is far from predictable. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

She takes you "behind the scenes" at a baseball wrap party, she talks about being a "star polisher" but my VERY favorite of all of her escapades is the "walrus woman." That is all I will say - one has to read it to believe it!! In her own words, Kris writes: "Most business people have a sixth sense about what is appropriate behavior in certain situations. I possess the same keen insight, but there's a part of me that wants to buck traditional etiquette and be outrageous . . ."
That should be the best preview to some of her exploits. I leave it to you to get ready to laugh and laugh and laugh!! Buy one for you and buy one for a friend. They'll be glad you did!
