.It all happened cause that damn Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA in 2013! I can’t believe that was 5 years ago, when I really decided to write my book and now I am almost done. Yes, writing a book for the first time is incredibly hard, but the hard part was trusting this was a good idea and not being afraid about how much life would change. Not just for me, but for my mama. For never leaving LA, she has been able to hide away from the Hollywood monsters and I wouldn’t want it any other way. It is the BIGGEST reason its taken me this long to finish, protecting her is in my DNA no matter how much she might have hurt me in the past. Thank the Gods I have been over my hate, revenge and fuck you feelings for years now. Staying in a healing place has been my saving grace and the power of my TRUTH, which is how this story is being told, through my healed heart. I remember seeing her face throughout the city, feeling like my muse was yelling at me to get off my ass and believe I am worth it. There was no space for me to be creative in survival mood. I was always expressive, dancing has been a true passion of mine. The dance floor has always been more like my home, my ability to set myself free amongst others who didn’t know me and didn’t care to. To be honest, its really my favorite way to feel free. Writing a book about my life, and letting people run down the rabbit hole with me, changes the perspective of who I am and how I can be creative. I'm not saying I can’t do it, I’m just saying its been nice hiding in my little world, sharing with people one at a time. But enough of that now, I can’t allow my fear of what it might look like to stop my TRUTH and connecting with others. Seeing this Facebook post was perfect timing for me to admit I am ready for my book to become a reality!

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nona’s life began as a fairytale. She was the daughter of a famous actress Sue Lyon (Lolita), and NFL player (Roland Harrison). Her father was absent for most of her childhood, and being a bi-racial child, she had questions at a very early age about why she looked so different.
By age 12, Sue remarried, and her relationship with her mother was never the same. Nona was kicked out of her house and by the age of 13 she was taken to a halfway house. That same year her mother placed her in an insane asylum where she stayed for almost 3 months. That kind of betrayal by her mother, a woman she once idolized, broke Nona’s spirit in a way which would take years to recover from. The author currently lives in Los Angeles…
