Pottering around in my jammies with two exuberant children, lining up TV movies for the rest of the day, and rather enjoying lazing around, I suddenly found myself doing a one-eighty.
I was invited to do a live Skype interview from my home in just a few hours on the launch of A Child After 40–a natural follow-on from our last debate on CNN (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/the-great-age-debate-on-cnn/)regarding the Kelly Preston story.

But this wasn’t the beginning of the story. In the weeks leading up to US Mother’s Day, 8th May—and in between school field trips and baking muffins—I had been pitching the importance of the message of A Child After 40 to key media.
A week before the official launch on 8th May, I got the heads-up from CNN and began preparing for a tremendous opportunity to film a live studio interview for the early evening Saturday 7th May.
Just an hour or so before the segment was meant to air, the producer contacted me again, with genuinely sincere apologies. The “home movies” on Osama Bin Laden had just been released and the interview for A Child After 40 was cancelled.
Or, as Frank wryly put it, Bin Laden had reached out from the grave and stolen our segment.
So, when Mother’s Day finally came, I was full-on ready to let go of all the hard work and let my hair down to drag on the floor at long last.
Little did I know that there was a wonderful Mother’s Day gift in on its way from a lady who turned out to be one of the most considerate and generous people I’ve met in the media. To her, I offer a special “Thank You.”
Sadly, my Skype camera and home office setting was over-exposed to light and not quite up to scratch for broadcast and for that I apologize. Needless to say, I’ll be picking up a new cam in the next week or two.
However, the A Child After 40 video and the message received sterling coverage and that’s what counts.
Thanks to the CNN production team and to all who supported the production of the A Child After 40 video.
