The Conjoined launches into the bright, sparkly world

September 16, 2016 was the launch party for The Conjoined, an event I was calling The Side Jobs Cabaret, and it was so fun, I was overcome with emotion at the end and collapsed on the floor of the stage. We had beautiful, funny and emotional performances from Chelene Knight, Jillian Christmas, Leah Horlick, Dina Del Bucchia and Daniel Zomparelli, and Stephen Quinn, that rascal, was our emcee. The Emerald (once, I believe, an iconic Chinatown restaurant with a mahjong room at the back) was the perfect spot. So perfect, in fact, my mother seemed quite pleased.

The Conjoined, as I’ve been saying to many people, has been the book that has straddled the biggest changes of my personal and professional lives, and I am so grateful that, when I launched a new book into the world, people still cared.  And now, photos!
