What people are saying about my manuscript Pick Me! Pick Me!

You think you’ve had a crazy life in the big city? Meet Felicia Scarangello, whose story about arriving in New York City in her 20s with dreams of becoming an actor, taking on a succession of insane jobs, and culminating in a career as a reality show producer and ‘talent wrangler’ will make you scream with laughter and smile with delight. After reading it, all I could think about was how much I want to see it turned into a movie—and to hang out in a bar with her one night until the wee hours.

Marcus Baram, author of Gill Scott Heron: Pieces of a Man


“They say if you like sausage, don’t visit the factory, but if you like TV—especially reality TV—you couldn’t find a better guide to how it’s made than Felicia Scarangello, who, much to her own horror, spent decades as a casting agent for reality shows. Pick Me! Pick Me!, her poignant memoir of her time in the trade, is full of many spicy tales. Fascinating read!"

John Donohue, bestselling editor of Man With a Pan: Culinary Adventures of Fathers Who Cook For their Families

Felicia Scarangello’s success as a reality TV casting director comes at a price; she loses her own self in drawing out the larger-than-life selves of others. Reading Pick Me, Pick Me! is like spending an evening with your snarky-but-lovable friend, the one who’s wearing two different shoes but has all the best gossip.
