The year was 1965 and I was in downtown Dallas parading thru Neiman Marcus in a Batgirl costume at thirteen years old--instead of the cheerleading uniform I had just been fitted for--promoting the Batman book that my stepmother had written. You don't know crazy until you've lived with it, through it, and survived it! That would be 'Crazy Beth'...once heralded as a 'heroine' who survived the plane crash at Love Field when I was six years old. My dad, Spencer Black, Texas oilman, had a heart attack at the controls of his plane and his fifth wife, Beth, lived to tell her story. Now, as Paul Harvey would say, is the "rest of the story"--my siblings and I survived Beth! Until this day in downtown Dallas, no one knew what was really going on behind the doors of the Mediterranean mansion on Lakewood Boulevard after my dad's death. I will take you on a journey of stories that are sometimes humorous, scary, sad, upsetting, and definitely bizarre...like the Batgirl story! My siblings and I continued to survive years of her mental illness, alcoholism, abuse and neglect, which ultimately led to foster care. This is a true-life story of 'Riches to Rags' but also one of survival--and ultimately life after Beth and in spite of Beth--told with my therapeutic sense of humor.
