I Was There All Along by Margo T. Krasne

Margo T is a dyed in the wool New Yorker. She has lived many lives starting out as an actress, then ad gal to full-time sculptor (her works in museums and private collections.) She started her Speak Up! Program in 1988 at age 50 publishing her first book in 1997. She continues to work and write full-out.

Margo Krasne has always been a “player.” She met and was influenced by a wide range of people — David Susskind, Mike Nichols, Stella Adler, Bill Bernbach, Wilhelm deKooning, Sanford Meisner, Martha Graham and more. From radio producer/actress, to sculptor, communications coach and now a ‘woman who writes’, Krasne has given each career her all, and it shows. Her first book, Say It With Confidence, has been through several editions. Now with I Was There All Along, readers can delve into the background of this dynamic and exceptional woman.

The book is written in a conversational tone, so you feel as if you were sitting in the room with Margo and she’s telling you her story. She has the ability to bring persons, even those peripheral to her own life, vibrantly alive. Perhaps her years as a communications trainer have affected her style, but it’s warm, engaging and frank. From her sexual relationships, her forays into therapy, or her own self assessments, her prose rings true and insightful. Even her conflicted relationship with her father is dealt with in an honest and spare style that doesn’t rely on self-pity to assess how this relationship affected her own personal development and even rebellion.
