Much love. I read your book a couple of months ago.
I found it to be a very honest look at Hollywood and the movie industry especially for a teenage actress. Having grown up in the 80's and having a chance to see all these movies in an actual movie theater this book brought back some great memories of my own childhood and gave your fans a good look into your own life. Well worth the read. She often pokes fun at the perception of her being the innocent sweet girl next door, a sultry seductress, or an evil siren.
She discusses her beginning years and how she matured quickly, using strong self discipline and drive to ensure excellent performers and professionalism. Her stories about each experience are fun and interesting and witty. The scene of her trying to seduce the priest has been forever embedded in my subconscious.

She also discusses why she left acting, the reason for the book and the joy she now has with her family and watching them pursue their passions. She stills acts occasionally and I had the extreme pleasure of meeting her at a convention last year in Indianapolis. What awesome fan wrote this!? It is a must-have not only because of the amazing pictures — a treasure trove of rare imagery, spanning decades — but also because Diane is able to objectively ID just what it was that made her so compelling as her acting career alighted in the s.
The early portions, about her childhood and early career highlights that even longtime fans are not familiar with, convey an inner strength and fortitude.

This clearly comes from within by way of upbringing but also drives the telling of the autobiography itself. Reading these passages, it is easy to see why Diane has been able to mentor students. With individual chapters, each movie — and characterization — is given their due.
Diane Franklin: The Excellent Curls of the Last American, French-Exchange Babe of the 80s
Thoughtful and thought-provoking, Diane writes beautifully about her ability to relate to those characters. Written with humor and sensitivity, this book is a great trip back in time with Diane while also affirming the value of looking ahead. Do it! But a girl happy with her childhood. Not the anorexic young lady needing plastic surgery because she thinks she not good enough, But a happy young lady. Thank you.

Although I didn't read the whole book yet, it was refreshing to read about someone actually happy about how her life turned out. So I worked on my voice from an early age. Monique could fix her car, she could go skiing, but she would also dress up for dinner and display another softer side.
But I always wanted to work. And my mom never discouraged it.
My parents never forced me to do anything and they allowed me to follow my goals. The actress also believes her childhood in the outskirts of New York helped shape the work ethic she still has today. California is more laid back.
Franklin started modeling at the age of 10 but as she grew older and discovered that her average height was a difficult obstacle to overcome for an adult, she eventually found her way into acting, doing commercials for Coca-Cola, Maxwell House coffee, and Jell-O, in addition to voiceover and theater work. In , she scored a gig as an extra on Endless Love with Brooke Shields, who was already a household name at the time. And I know how to handle myself. But fortunately, I never had to deal with the casting couch.
But you also have to realize that many actors meet the ones they fall in love with on the set.
