Please share any of your thoughts in the comments below … I’d love to put them together for a series of blog posts when the book comes out to keep the discussion going.

First up: Who was your favorite Mary Tyler Moore Show character? Did you love down-to-earth Mary? Relate to the witty Rhoda? Wish Lou was your gruff-but-kind boss? Tell me!

  1. Rhoda’s mom, Ida Morgenstern was my fave because she was a typical impossible Jewish mother. In my first Mary episode that I wrote, “Rhoda’s Sister Gets Married,” Rhoda drags Mary to New York to act as a buffer to prevent Rhoda from getting into a fight with her mother. The results were funny and sad. Rhoda is my second fave Mary character because I identified with her was the kooky not pretty, but funny friend.
