About my guests:

Donna Hurst was born in East St. Louis, Illinois. She grew up in the small town of Effingham, Illinois in the heart of the Midwest. Donna developed a love affair with music at a very early age. At the age of seven, she performed to a sold out theater with Buddy Rich. She performed and toured as the lead singer and bass player for the Rock N Roll Band Rare Illusion where they had successful tours all over North America for twelve years. Donna was the creator of most of the band’s original material. When the band finally split in 1988, Donna moved to California and continued playing music, writing, and recording with several major artists.

Julie A. Smith was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Julie has had various jobs throughout her life that included waitressing and bartending. She also tried her hand as an actor, and was featured in "Living Out Loud," "Melrose Place, 90210" and various plays around town. She entered behind-the-scenes back in 2000 where she worked as PA for "The Norm Show," then moved to "The Drew Carey Show." After two years with "The Drew Carey Show," she went on to work as an Assistant for Gerry Cohen's shows which included, "Still Standing," "Run of the House," "Listen Up" and the "George Lopez" show. She also worked on "The Help" with Ron Leavitt, who was the creator and writer of "Married with Children." Julie feels very blessed to have worked on these shows, for all the people whom she has met, and for the memories, all of which fueled her creative mind and helped her create and write "Fumbling thru the Pieces."

Donna and Julie had been friends for several years. One day Julie called and said “I have an idea… I think we’d make a good writing team. Will you take a look at my script?”
