From the author
I was born the fifth of seven children in November of 1961
in the quiet town of Winnetka on the north shore of Chicago.
As the third of the five Pryor girls, I vividly recall
observing female communication and dynamics from a very
early age. My mother's commitment to her own female friends
and the valued place they held in her life, amid the raising
of seven children, set an early and unforgettable precedent.
During my childhood I discovered music as my first creative
outlet. I found my love for writing while composing songs on
the guitar and creating lyrics. Eventually I landed at
Kansas University, where I studied journalism.
When I moved to Los Angeles in 1990, I decided to sharpen my
writing skills at UCLA. Over the next ten years, while
committed to my work in short fiction, I earned a living as
a commercial and television actress. It was during this time
I met my husband.
After the birth of my first child, I became a full-time mom,
but continued writing during nap-time. Human behavior and
self-exploration remained the focus of my short stories,
until I wrapped myself around the subject of women in
friendship, which ultimately resulted in the birth of my
book, WHAT DID I DO WRONG?.
I live in Los Angeles with my three young children and
husband, Thomas Calabro, a professional actor for over
