…to write The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. I have been asked about the inspiration for my book. Here’s the scoop: I spent four summers studying in Europe and had fabulous experiences with native men. Every time I returned home, I was bombarded with questions from girlfriends about the guys, flirting tips, and hot spots…never mind what I studied! When I was graduating, the girls urged me to write a tip book. I wanted them to have excellent man-meeting experiences too, so I did. Some of those girls are pictured above in the Vanderbilt University dance/cheer team. I’m on the bottom row, far left.
