When I get a new script my mom will read them and just be aghast. I think it’s hysterical.
My mom was the picture of the blue-collar mom: Two and three and four jobs to make sure that me and my sister never needed, that was her thing.
I could never have pictured myself writing a book when I was 25 years old. My mom was an English teacher but I wasn’t that way growing up.
I’d say that if you had a strained relationship with your mom, for whatever reason, the best thing to do is be open with each other, talk it over, try and work it out somehow as opposed to just putting a wall up and pushing them away.
I think my first big purchase was actually for my mom. She had one of those ’90s TVs in her living room that’s like a 10×10 brick, so I purchased her a flatscreen for her living room.
