Date Like a Grownup: Anecdotes, Admissions of Guilt and Advice Between Friends examines the impact of loneliness and social obsolescence on men and women in their second single lives and provides punctuating proof that looking for love from a place of isolation is as unwise as grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Unlike many other relationship manuals, this book will not guide you through game playing and winning temporary partners. Instead, readers will develop a personalized strategy for building a life foundation that facilitates growing a “right fit” relationship.



From first thought to final edit, Heather Dugan will write the script, storyboard the video, record/edit the voiceover, deliver the on-camera message and craft it all together into a high impact audio or video message. Projects are scaled to fit your budget for web or broadcast. Just need the perfect “voice?” Check out the demos.
