She Didn’t Quit – episode 146 with my guest Shana Betz

Shana Betz is from my small town in Ohio, she had a rough childhood, and her mother coordinated a drug-running ring in Florida… but in spite of all of that, she didn’t quit. She is a successful actor, writer, and director. Listen to this episode and be inspired.

Shana Betz is a director and writer, known for Free Ride (2013), Haunting of the Mary Celeste (2020) and Girls! Girls! Girls! (2011). She is also the Co-President & Founder of The Chimaera Project which supports women filmmakers towards seeing their project to fruition.

I am an author in the process of writing my memoir. I want to share my writing with you, before the editing process and before I am even finished writing my book.

I want to read to you and for you.
