Ms. Day knows what she's doing today at 4 p.m.: driving out to Harrah's (777 Casino Center Drive, Maryland Heights; 314-770-8100 or www.harrahs.com
) to meet the monarch of romance, Barbara Taylor Bradford
. This author, who has sold more than 75 million copies of her books, is here to sign The Ravenscar Dynasty
(if you purchase it at the event), which is her latest accomplishment. Ms. Day's admiration of this lovely novelist started when she was quite young: Mommy Day read BTB like the writer was revealing the royal family's secrets! As Day grew up, her appreciation for Babs grew what a lady! She was born in England, she lives in a to-die-for New York City building with two fluffy bichon frises, Art Deco collectibles and her one true love, and she types her stories out on a typewriter
, for crying out loud! Her most recent effort is a more modern twist on the Wars of the Roses, complete with plenty of passion and riches aren't these what make the world go round? It certainly seems that way when looking at Babs' life, since she's been married for more than 40 years, and money...well, a lady doesn't discuss such things.
