On a trip to Las Vegas with my then-boyfriend, I was spotted by a PLAYBOY talent scout saying I should model for them. However, from the moment she gave me her card to the time I actually appeared in the magazine, there was a full year of endless photo sessions with my photographer, Robert Scott Hooper. He and his girlfriend Theresa, must have posed me and shot me over a million times! At times I thought I'd never make it. And to be sure, my family hoped I never would either! But I did make it; I was even voted PLAYMATE of the YEAR for 1978 by the readers, the editors and HEF...I was overjoyed!
