I continue to be amazed at the publicity opportunities that have appeared for me to tell my story to help others. In May I received an emai from a producer at Make Believe Media in Vancouver, British Columbia. She told me that they were putting together a show called "The Devil You Know" and wanted to know if I would like to be one of the eight hour shows of the series. Now, I've had some amazing publicity for my book "A Dance with the Devil: A True Story of Marriage to a Psychopath" and you would think I would be used to the cold calls. But I'm not. Each time I'm contacted I'm excited as as ever. Fireworks explode and it takes my breath away. I couldn't say yes fast enough.
The crew showed up to film in June. The director, sound technician, and camerman came down from Canada and stayed for over a week! They spent two-and-a-half days filming with just me for direct interviews and "B" roll shots. Several of my friends who knew "the admiral" were also interviewed. In fact, the production company flew one couple down from Oregon just for the shoot. I provided photographs and home video to augment the piece. One of my favorite memories is my husband and I sitting around our patio table in the shade area after a long day of filming and sharing our homemade wine with the crew.
