An adventurous free spirit spending her early years in Hollywood afforded her many opportunities to date a diverse array of Hollywood’s most interesting bachelors. Her experiences and life lessons make for very entertaining and enlightening reading.
Olivia started reading in Kindergarten. She enjoyed the witty poetic nature of Dr. Suess and still has her favorite book “Green Eggs and Ham” memorized as an adult. Olivia also loved Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. Olivia is a natural nurturer, a trait that both helped and at times made her vulnerable in relationships.
Olivia started Journaling as soon as she could write. Her parents always believed she was destined to be a writer. As a child she wrote out her prayers. As she grew up her journals became a place to write out her feelings through poetry and to tell the stories that made up her budding romantic life. This was a habit she continued into adulthood. When she hit a bit of a rough patch she wrote to express herself.
The truth is that Olivia learned from the mistakes of others, and it is her intention and hope that readers will be able to learn from hers. Olivia’s desire is to encourage women to channel their inner strength, independence and confidence. Her mantra: “If it is respect that you desire, you must first respect yourself. If it is love you seek, you must first love yourself.”
Olivia has been fortunate enough to play many different roles during her acting career working with every major studio in Hollywood. One of her most personally influential performances was an early role playing a ruthless seductress on the FX show “Dirt,” It pressed her limits and gave her the confidence she needed to pursue any role that came her way. “At eighteen I didn’t think I could dance until I hopped on a coffee table and did a strip tease for the entire world to see. When I left the set that night I went out dancing. At that point I decided I could do anything I set my mind to,” she said. Olivia learned that pushing the envelope and facing her fears goes a long way toward building confidence.
Olivia enjoys sharing relationship and dating advice with her friends. “I’ve had a lot of experience in the world of dating and I enjoy sharing my stories and helping others. I may not be perfect, but I live my life with no regrets. What some consider a mistake I call a beautiful life lesson.” Helping others makes it all worthwhile.
Today, Olivia is happily married. She still enjoys acting, but that is no longer her first priority. Writing has opened up as the next chapter of her life and for that she is very grateful.
