This is my friend Tash, one of the characters in my book and here taking a quick reading break from her glamorous ski vacation. We’ve been buddies since 1993 when I lived in New Mexico. She’s the one who throws great parties with Tiki torches; wants to help you have a blast; has a laugh that can be heard for miles; loves to run out for spontaneous Thai food takeout; and has the sunniest can-do attitude. Really, I love her to pieces and she’s a great friend.
All hail Natasha!
