Unstoppable in Stilettos - A Girl's Guide to Living Tall in a Small World

New York, NY, November 3, 2010 - Standing 4 feet, 2 inches tall in flats (which she would never be caught dead in anyway), Lauren Ruotolo’s preferred method of transportation is her stiletto heels, and she utilizes them to do everything from hailing cabs in mid-town Manhattan to traipsing along the streets of exotic, ancient places like Greece and Turkey. But how does a girl with a rare genetic disease, McCune-Albright Syndrome, who was originally predicted to live a wheelchair-bound existence become so adventurous, self-assured, successful, and . . . unflappable?

Instead of being hovered over by enabling parents, Lauren tells us in her new book, Unstoppable in Stilettos: A Girl's Guide to Living Tall in a Small World (HCI Books -- $14.95 – October 2010), she was treated the same as her fully-able siblings and subsequently became the role model big sister to them (and landed a hot boyfriend, to boot!) Truly unstoppable, she rose to become Director of Entertainment Promotions for Hearst Magazines.

Lauren Ruotolo avoided the label of "disabled" through uniquely discovering who she really is and thus avoiding playing the label game. The little girl, with the big voice, Ruotolo is a combination of roaring personality, great mind, and humble soul, with a heart bigger than any shoe closet of Carrie Bradshaw. Part of that heart fills this book, as Ruotolo offers the entertaining evolution of a little girl in a big world to living tall in a small one, with advice and encouragement for any woman of any age who is still finding her way.

About the Author:

Lauren Ruotolo is the Director of Entertainment Promotions at Hearst Magazines in New York City, where she is responsible for developing strategic key partnerships with TV & cable networks, music labels, and movie studios. She recently helped produce E!'s Style Network show about the inner workings at Marie Claire fashion magazine and is working on two one-hour specials with Scripps Networks for Esquire and The Food Network magazine. Lauren joined Hearst Magazines from TV Guide Magazine, where she was the Director of Consumer Marketing & Promotions and created the first ever U.S. newsstand promotion with CD on the cover.

Ruotolo's first-person essay "Get Shorty," which shared her philosophies on living with the rare genetic disorder, McCune-Albright syndrome, was published in Marie Claire magazine in 2009, and was one of the most responded to articles in Marie Claire. Ruotolo is on the advisory board of Glamour Gals, Love Our Children USA, and is an active member in the NY chapter of Women in Communications & Step Up for Women.
