Podcast: Last Dance at the Savoy


By ROBERT DICK

When Kathryn Leigh Scott's husband Geoff Miller, founding editor of Los Angeles Magazine, was diagnosed with the neurological disease Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Kathryn began to keep a journal of the impact PSP was having on their lives.

With the aid of that journal, Kathryn has now written her latest book "Last Dance at the Savoy: Life, Love and Caring for Someone with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy." In it she writes of the good times, the hard times, and the practicalities of becoming a care-giver. As she puts it, at the time she "yearned for someone to figuratively take my hand and walk with me through the difficult times I knew were ahead."

"Last Dance at the Savoy" hopes to provide that hand for other people affected by PSP, and also raise awareness of PSP and the CurePSP Foundation.

Kathryn recently joined me to discuss writing her book, and the events that inspired it. And kindly provided us with an excerpt from the audiobook.

We also discuss Kathryn's other non-fiction work, and her novels "Dark Passages," "Down and Out in Beverley Heels" and "Jinxed." Along the way, Kathryn talks of the forthcoming Dark Shadows 50th Anniversary Festival, and the memorabilia she'll be auctioning there in aid of the CurePSP Foundation.

"Last Dance at the Savoy" is published by Cumberland Press and is available from Amazon and book stores on all apps/devices. A percentage of the proceeds will go to the CurePSP Foundation.
