From singing to the postman when she was less than two years old to her annual sell-out tours in the 2000s, Barbara Dickson has been captivating her fans for the best part of sixty years. In her autobiography she describes the joys of growing up in Fife in the fifties, of moving to Edinburgh at seventeen to find her place in the world and the struggles of trying to make a living on the Scottish folk scene.
Despite becoming Scotland's bestselling solo artist in the seventies and eighties and having huge hits such as 'I Know Him So Well' and 'Caravan Song', Barbara was not content to have just a successful singing career. She turned to another: acting. A regular on prime-time television, Barbara also took to musicals, making Blood Brothers and Spend, Spend, Spend her own. Her time onstage earned her many acting accolades but her pursuit of perfection lead to complete exhaustion from which she fought hard to recover.
Barbara's is a warm, fascinating story that encompasses the best of British music, stage and television and above all tells the story of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary voice.
Ruth met Bob when she was eighteen. They felt their meeting was meant to be. But both of them had a great deal of inner growth to accomplish. After eight years of marriage they divorced. In the next sixteen years they did the work it took to grow - separately. When they remarried, their gratefulness knew no bounds. They knew how very fortunate they were and lived together with a deep appreciation for having a second chance in life. When Bob died twenty years later, Ruth put her grief into the words that are this book. For me poetry is a spiritual unfolding of the essence of relationships through words. Below is the title poem of my book of poetry, dedicated to my husband Bob: Days of Together We knew days of together then, humbled away from us we knew life alone. As though by no reason our beings played a seemingly magical game, Our course designed by the Master in kindness and in beauty is our daily graduation in eternal search for Truth. Ruth won the American Pen Women Award for her short story, "Locked Inside," which she read at the new San Francisco Library.
I am a Vampiress from Brooklyn with a mission! Do you know how many teen girls struggle with the courage to make the right choices and find their own voice? My mission is to empower teen girls to be courageous, so they can make the right choices and find their own voice. I may be over 100 years old now, but, remember, Vampires never grow up! I still feel like a teenager at heart and I still struggle with the same issues and challenges I did 85 years ago. I've also been through over 100 years of challenges and experiences, so I think that qualifies me as a freakin' "expert," don't you? I mean, there ain't nothin' I haven't seen or heard, so I am inspired to share both my mistakes and successes with you. I will also tell ya that some of my biggest successes and lessons have come from making mistakes and the wrong choices. You just gotta pick yourself up, start over and make different choices the next time. At any time, you have the power to create a "do-ova" and feel differently, think differently, dress differently and be different. I, and this book, are here to support you, guide you and honor you in areas where you are feeling stuck, confused, fearful, insecure or simply needing help. I may have only tawked to them a few times, but I know your role models like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift would also tell you to "Be You...And, Be Fearless" and in Ms. Vampy words, "VAMP IT OUT!."
