About the Author

Steve Taravella, Silver Spring, Maryland, and Rome, Italy, is a longtime journalist and communications specialist. He has received eleven writing awards, including the Dag Hammarksjold Award for Human Rights Advocacy in Journalism and the Society of Professional Journalists' Mark of Excellence Award.


Divulging the kind of insider details that entertainment buffs adore, Taravella delivers a scholarly, affectionate, and vivid biography of a legendary actress.--Carol Haggas "Booklist "
This is a straightforward biography that celebrates and shines a light on a woman who Hollywood never took seriously. Her friendships with various Hollywood hoi polloi, including a long-standing friendship with Lucille Ball, are a tender chapter in the book, and Ball's daughter Lucie Arnaz's recollections will cause tears to well up. Biographies about lesser-known actors are always fascinating because you never know what to expect. Taravella doesn't stoop to naming names or providing salacious gossip. He wants to give you insight on a woman who made people laugh but who never got her due.--Kristen Lopez "Journeys in Classic Film blog "
Highly recommended. The biography is incredibly well-researched, and it is obvious that Taravella put an immense amount of work into providing readers as thorough an understanding of Mary Wickes as possible. Mary Wickes: I Know I've Seen That Face Before is filled with interesting anecdotes about Wickes's career that may be wholly unfamiliar to her many fans.--Brandie Ashe "True Classics cinema blog "
