Dinah Washington inspired me to become a singer with clear diction. Actress Doris Day was also an inspiration. I have written mini-plays and produced them in lounges. I have written and produced a movie, [i]Reject Island[/i] and the accompanying soundtrack, [i]Frances Nero sings Reject Island[/i]. I have scripted and produced my autobiography, [i]Mountains, Motown & Motion Pictures[/i]. I wrote, produced and performed the [i]Love Ride[/i] trio CD and am currently producing and recording [i]Frances Nero salutes Dinah Washington[/i]. Production will begin on two scripts, [i]The Majesty and Music--Dinah Washington[/i] and [i]The Passing of Ezra Hazlette[/i]--a comedy.
