by Donalie Young Fitzgerald Scherer
This is the story of one woman’s successes and challenges, both in her career and her love life, in the world of Hollywood. Donalie Young Fitzgerald Scherer worked behind the scenes in television and movies for decades, interacting with legendary figures like Tina Turner, Frank Sinatra, Cher, Jackie Gleason, and Aretha Franklin. But her life was not all glitz and glamour.
“There were good times, and there were difficult times, but there were never bad times. A lot of people gave me footholds, and I would like to think I have passed them forward.
My search was an inner drive I could have never explained. For more than two-thirds of my life, I have thought of myself as half a person. Back in the fifties, Ozzie wasn’t married to Sharon; his other half was Harriet, and they lived happily ever after in a cookie-cutter house. I was Harriet. Where was my Ozzie? Where was Superman?”
