I am in the process of working on the second edition of Little Madhouse, in which I will answer questions posed by readers and include letters and emails from fans and many of the professional testimonials I have received. Linda Purl, a veteran actor of the stage, screen and television, graciously wrote the following review for me to include.
“This is a most extraordinary book. I could not put it down. Marion firmly plants her footsteps and those of her readers on the healing path. Her book overflows with love, forgiveness, wisdom and strength. This is an important story, powerfully told! Recommend it to be read IMMEDIATELY.”
My purpose in posting this blog entry is to take the opportunity to thank Linda for the support she has given me with regards to this book. She was one of the first people to read it, to post a review on Amazon, and to make me believe it was worth the effort it would take to get it out into the world.
You may know Linda most recently from The Office or Desperate Housewives, or from her previous roles as the fiancee of Fonzie on Happy Days or Charlene Matlock on the Matlock series. She has over 100 film, television and stage credits to her name, and when she performs during her solo concerts, I think the true depth of her talent becomes even clearer.
Linda, in addition to being an incredible talent, is a kind, generous and loving human being, and I am honored to call her a friend. If you get a chance to see her in concert, you have a treat in store for you. You can read more about Ms. Purl at her Official Website.
I don’t mean to embarrass you, Linda. This just turned out to be the perfect chance for me to tell you thank you – and how much you have touched my life!
