I'm an actress (3rd Rock & now the exes), a teacher at NYU and now a best-selling author of GUTS. I wrote the book with no help whatsoever, and the reason I'd love to win a shorty is because I answer almost every tweet, and it's been an incredible way to connect with people who are also struggling with addiction. I'd love GUTS to reach even more people, it's really saving lives. Mostly, twitter has given me a voice, whereas for 20 years I was told to say "no comment". It's really changed my life

I may be a cliche (Actress becomes addict!) but I wrote a book, (GUTS), which makes me...even MORE of a cliche! Crap!
