Words cannot express how grateful I am to Irene. She has found the perfect words with which to illustrate my life. Her talent and empathy have truly made a sometimes emotional and painful exploration of my past so truly worth it.

-Lisa Guerrero, award winning journalist, actress, and sportscaster, on working with Irene on Warrior (2022)

Praise & Reviews

Hilarious, poignant, and so true to life it's frightening. They're Not Your Friends is a very entertaining Hollywood novel and the perfect summer read.

Robin Lynn Williams, author of The Assistants, on They're Not Your Friends

You Have No Idea is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and will ultimately leave you empowered to face whatever challenges life throws at you with grace and poise—just like [Vanessa Williams and Helen Williams] have.
