PIT TO LAX: MY STORY WORTHY LIFE For Christine Blackburn, the youngest of six kids growing up in Pittsburgh, the idea of living in Los Angeles and working in the entertainment industry seemed like a dream (or at least something you only saw on television). Instead she took a circuitous route—first as a flight attendant, then in the Peace Corps—with some unforeseen setbacks: a rare cancer diagnosis at age 31. With a survivor’s renewed sense of urgency, Blackburn finally found the courage to take the leap to Los Angeles and pursue her life as a performer, or at least... as a contestant on The Dating Game. PIT to LAX: My Story Worthy Life is a series of memories about loving, losing, and letting go, which will inspire you and stay with you long after you’ve left its last pages. 

Christine has written a frank and funny collection of stories. You’ll be laughing out loud one minute and then she’ll hit you with a poignancy that you didn’t see coming. Reading this book is like getting sucker punched in the best way possible.
