From meeting some of the greatest rock and jazz musicians of the 20th century and designing hats that circled the globe worn by notables such as Elton John, Ben Vereen, and Michael Jackson, this book is a colorful romp through an unforgettable era in Northern California.
Packed with stories about hippies, rock ‘n roll, and fast cars, What Was I Thinking? Is my unabashed retelling of stories from my life during the 1940s to 1980s that led me to become a booking agent of big-name bands, to running a gallery, a teen center, and a Mexican culture center, to owning two restaurants, traveling worldwide, raising six children, marrying eight husbands, writing a cookbook, and working as a celebrated costume/mascot designer.

As the wise Meher Baba once said, “In order to appreciate truth, approach it through itself, without any game of hide and seek.” Hiding nothing, this book holds my truth. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed living it.
