"The Royal family of the cosmetic industry." Guest Blogger Jodi Hanson @chaptersandchats reviews The Maybelline Story and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind it............
quest to being a millionaire.
Sharrie Williams was born to tell the story of her family. She does it with grace and humility showing not only the successes but the failures of her heritage. I was captivated from the first paragraph greedily pouring over the pages. I highly recommend “The Maybelline Story: And the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind it” is a must read for enthusiasts of memoirs and biographies.
News Girl Don't Cry by Melissa McCarty on Amazon
Today the host of ORA TV's Newsbreaker, and now calling Larry King her boss, Melissa McCarty worked her way up through the trenches of live television news. But she was also running away from her past, one of growing up in the roughest of neighborhoods, watching so many she knew including her brother succumb to drugs, gangs, and violence. It was a past that forced her to be tough and streetwise, traits that in her career as a popular television newscaster, would end up working against her. Every tragic story she covered were grim reminders of where she'd been. But the practiced and restrained emotion given to the camera became her protective armor even in her private life where she was unable to let her guard down and turned into a weapon that damaged both her personal and professional relationships. In News Girls Don't Cry, McCarty confronts the memory-demons of her past, exploring how they hardened her and how she turned it all around. An inspiring story of overcoming adversity, welcoming second chances, and becoming authentic.
