A Once in a Life Time Experience

My head is still reeling from our trip to Hollywood for the premiere of the movie, "Paper Heart." It's one of the most exciting experiences I've ever had. Actually, it was right up there on my thrill-0-meter with getting married and giving birth to my son.

How many times does one get invited to a Hollywood movie premiere and actually appear in the film? Well, so far it's only once for me, and it was more fun than I've had in a long time. I'm not sure why my husband and I got picked, but I'm really glad we did. Maybe it's because I'm a romance writer and the film is about a young woman's quest to find out if there is really such a thing as "true love." Or, maybe it's because my husband and I have been married for a very long time and not only continue to be in love, but even better, we still like each other.

At the premiere, we got to walk the red carpet, pose for pictures and sign autographs. To make matters even better, as if that's possible, we really enjoyed the movie. When the film crew came to our home in New Mexico to film our interview over a year ago, we had no idea what the movie was all about. Much to our delight, it turned out to be a very enjoyable and well done movie. It won an award at the Sundance Film Festival and got very positive reviews all the way around. Roger Ebert gave it a great review and three stars.

If you want to see a charming movie that will make you laugh and cry, go see "Paper Heart." It's in limited release right now, but will be shown in more theaters next week. It stars Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera and they were both wonderful.
