My guest cohost this week is Hanja Kochansky, a writer, actress, singer-songwriter, aromatherapist (healer) free spirited, iconoclast, citizen of the world.
At age six, she was a refugee fleeing from World War ll-torn Croatia to Italy. Five years later, she emigrated to apartheid South Africa, where she remained until going back to Rome in the 1960's to become an actress. She was cast as Elizabeth Taylor's handmaiden in "Cleopatra."  She married an Englishman and fully experienced the sex, drugs, & rock and roll era in swinging London, had a daughter, was a battered wife-then-divorcee, and worked at the Playboy Club as a Blackjack croupier.
In 1972 Hanja wrote "Female Sexual Fantasies," the first book of its kind in our times. It was published in America, where it sold 250,000 copies, and in England and Australia.
More highlights of Hanja's exciting life: Married a charismatic handsome American actor, had a daughter, was a battered wife, divorced, found her spirituality in India in a temple, co-created a commune in Sardinia, acted in films and wrote songs in Rome, performed a one-woman cabaret show of songs she composed, was certified as an aromatherapist in London in 1991, established the first aromatherapy studio in Rome.
She is currently working on a book and lives in London.
