I am a local celebrity—to girls ages four to six. Actually, I’m not, but my alter ego Princess Collette is. I am a princess residing at Tea Party Castle.

I know for me writing these was a very personal experience. I wasn't sure how to best project myself, but I think the key is not trying to be perfect--because you can't. Write about what you are passionate about and what makes you wake up in the morning.
