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.
