Pear Tree January 2022

Maryanne Christiano Mistretta and Sammy

“Nothing is important, so people, realizing that, should get on with their lives, go mad, take their clothes off, jump in the canal, jump into one of those supermarket trolleys, race around the supermarket and steal Mars bars and kiss kittens.” — Morrissey

I’m starting off the new year with a bang of a quote by Morrissey. This quote resonates with me because I am the one who races in a supermarket cart like a little kid and sings songs in the aisles. Who cares if no one smiles at you. Just enjoy — your soul is watching. And being fun like that gives off great vibes to attract more fun in your life.

Doing what you love for a living, adds to that. Here are the things I am available for:

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)

Unfortunately, Pear Tree will no longer present to libraries unless there is a signed contract to be paid “day of.” Pear Tree Enterprises is not a collection agency, therefore checks must be presented “day of” or the program will not be. NO NEGOTIATIONS.
