Biography Progress Report #34 – That’s All Folks!

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 308

When I posted the first Biography Progress Report back in June of 2009, I had no idea what lay ahead for me – becoming a parent, being treated for thyroid cancer while closing escrow, getting a major promotion at work. I also didn’t think it would be another four and a half years before I would get to write this, the 34th and final Biography Progress Report, but here we are and here it is.

As of today,  Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel is officially released and will be making its way into mail boxes around the country, and hopefully around the world. It’s been a unexpectedly long journey to get to this point with a lot of craziness along the way, but in the end I honestly believe the book could not be more perfect (well, if those photos of Ann’s third husband had not gotten lost in the mail, that would have been cool).

There are many people who have been following this site for years and have been so encouraging and patient. Knowing that other people care about Ann Dvorak and want to know her story has always fueled me to keep going and see this through. I extend my sincere appreciation to each and every one of you and hope I haven’t let you down.

And now that my first book has been published, what am I going to do? I’m going to Disneyland! Seriously, we’re grabbing my daughter and leaving right now.


This may be the final Biography Progress Report, but I still have 57 more posts for The Year of Ann Dvorak so keep coming back!

    Maybe one day those lost photos of Ann’s third husband will wash ashore like a message in a bottle.

    So a few more installments of ‘Ann Dvorak’s Los Angeles’ await?
