About the author (1998)

The original Love Boat Cruise Director, Jeraldine Saunders is known world-wide for her books, lectures, and civic activities. She has published eleven books, and has appeared on Good Morning, America, Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, and more than 850 other TV and radio talk shows all over the world. She serves as National Spokesperson for the Hypoglycemia Foundation of America, and is affiliated with the American Federation of Astrologers; Poets, Essayists, and Novelists (PEN); Film Welfare League; Screen Actors Guild/American Federation of Television and Radio Artists; Academy of Television Arts & Science; and the International College of Applied Nutrition. Jeraldine also lectures worldwide on astrology, graphology, numerology, palmistry, and face-reading. THE LOVE BOATS is an autobiographical account of Jeraldine's years as a hostess, then cruise director aboard several posh luxury ships. After a career as a couturier model, Jeraldine took a job lecturing on astrology, motivation, and the Four Seasons color concept on cruise ships before becoming the industry's first female Cruise Director. She turned this decade-long experience into a book, then later parlayed that into a television series, THE LOVE BOAT, currently in syndication in over 110 countries.
