I’ve written two internationally lauded books (and ghostwritten a handful of others):

Hello Gorgeous! Beauty Products in America ‘40s-‘60s , a NY Public Library pick for 2006, inspired a week-long retro beauty event at Henri Bendel including the 5th Avenue windows and main atrium decorated Hello Gorgeous! style. Hello Gorgeous! is also used as a text-book in cosmetic merchandising and marketing programs. I frequently lecture on the history of beauty, women’s spending power and the cosmetic industry at universities and private corporations including cosmetic and fragrance corporations.

Career and Corporate Cool (Wiley 2007 ) launched in partnership with global giant Nokia and one of’s picks for most interesting career book of 2007 and an Entrepreneur magazine pick for one of five “page turners for women entrepreneurs.” Career and Corporate Cool can be found in many business and university libraries and is considered a must have for those entering the workplace or looking to upgrade their personal brand and image. I lecture and lead workshops on defining your personal style and brand, corporate etiquette and more.
