I regarded reading nonfiction as the worst form of torture when I was young. To me, the word "nonfiction" meant dull, dry, and boring. My goal while I was writing this book was to make it not only informative, but fun to read. The story of each dancer unfolds just as it might in a novel. There are lots of anecdotes, lots of quotes. I think readers will find the book as enjoyable to read as it was to research. After all, how else would I have learned that Fred Astaire used to rehearse up to 18 hours a day for several weeks, sometimes losing 15 pounds and leaving his partners' shoes caked with blood, before he was satisfied with a single dance routine?About the Author:
