DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the Hollywood apartment of author Anna David, whose novel Party Girl--about a girl who gets hired to write a party column as she's getting sober--has just been released on audio. Anna talks about the inspiration for the book, her dream of creating an audio version, her hopes for a TV or film adaptation and who she'd love to see play the lead. (Hint: it's Lohan) She also talks candidly about her own journey to sobriety, hitting rock bottom, what makes coke addicts different from other types of addicts and what surprised her about sobriety. Other topics include: her 19 year-old miracle cat, the nightmare of collaborating with Tom Sizemore, how as a freelance writer she managed the demise of magazines, her coaching program and new company Light Hustler, spirituality, her best shoplifting move, horrible bosses and the trauma from seeing Jaws at 5.
