Growing up with a mother who was always on stage was a problem. Mother, a dancer and an actress, had little interest, or natural talent, in parenting. From a young age I looked for and found substitutes who could mother me, giving me the support, love, and understanding that a growing child needs. At different stages in my life, different women filled that role. My story covers my struggles from age seven until my mother’s death, when I was 25.
