Diary of a Lollipop in a Peanut Factory

... The story of an unexpected life...

    Take the train into the station. Step on the platform. Walk of Broadway and open curtain into the backstage World of New York City--- Visit Times Square, 7th Avenue, and Hell's Kitchen. Meet famous celebrities from the worlds of sports, entertainment, and fashion all the while raising money to wipe out Leukemia.

    Join artist and designer Jane Elissa as a single phone call to the Leukemia Society alters her life. While she raises money to battle cancer, Jane unexpectedly finds herself living out childhood fantasies, building her own shop at the crossroads of the world in Times Square, and falling in love. She believes she's conquered her personal fears until one day "memories of Brooklyn" rush in and heartbreak slams back into her life.... She thought she had become a strong peanut, protective shell in place, but then the twists and turns of fate throw her a curve and leave her feeling like a lollipop once more with nothing to protect her heart from dissolving.

    This very personal account offers a glimpse behind the scenes into a lifestyle most people only dream about.
