This older entertainer's survival guide book is the marker of my acting journey so far. It is t the ultimate acting how-to; it is only apropos to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and the Southeast area of the United States. Many people asked how I developed my acting career and promoted myself after I retired. My target audiences are the late bloomers of the Baby Boomer Generation. These are the lessons so far. - Cynthia Harris Tademy
