I spent my twenties as an actress, most notably in The Blair Witch Project. After eight years toiling in the monster ghetto, where B-movies go to die, I burned two thirds of my everything in the desert. Out of the ashes came the slow down and dirty tug of country life (and nuggets.) My memoir of putting down roots and other rural exploits is called Growgirl. It's coming out on Jan. 5 from Gotham/Penguin. Go to heatherdonahue.com if you’d like more info, or follow my dog @mrvito.
